Janus, the god who can see both inwardly and outwardly and from both sides, introduces this course. The sessions look at Jung’s concept of the opposites and their transcendent third. We recommend this course after experiencing more basic Vantage Point courses.
THE THIRD HALF OF LIFE.
Two halves make a whole, right? So why is there a Vantage Point Course entitled The Third Half of Life? We would suggest that one take the course to find out! Such rich material is to be found and studied while one looks for The Third Half of Life. The course begins with an in-depth review of typology, recalling the various functions by which we operate in life and experience life’s events. It goes on to discuss the importance of learning ways to be able to use any or all of the functions. Then comes a session on the shadow. Put these two areas together, as does the course, to find out how to use them both on one’s journey toward wholeness, toward new knowledge on one’s psyche, one’s unconscious. Gods and goddesses, myths and poetry, make this course a treasure hunt of discovery of the necessity and creativity of using the shadow, of finding how to use the fourth (or archaic) function to raise the unconscious closer to consciousness.
For those who wish to listen to the course content and follow along with the workbook, this 3 CD set can be added for $30. Author: Chandler "Chink" Brown Narrator: Chandler Brown Sessions: 5
