This workshop was held February 10, 2007 in Santa Barbara, California. Set includes 5 CDs.
Both men and women are face to face with an inner feminine that is shifting our understanding of relationship. These shifts can be both threatening and rewarding. When we are attempting to live our own integrity, how do we relate to our partners facing a similar shift? How do we open new ground for the shadow that is bound to appear. When the Puer moves into his patriarchal shadow, how does the Virgin deal with her silenced shadow? When this happens, do we remain true to the relationship and/or true to oneself and our own integrity? In this lecture, we will discuss creative approaches that open new doors to the relationship between masculinity and femininity.
Conference held in Santa Barbara, CA April 16-18, 2004.

In a lifetime dedicated to understanding the great mythologies of mankind, Joseph Campbell was always clear that these sacred stories were at the heart of the human psyche. They were never to be studied as dry, academic curiosities, but instead he insisted that they were vital and relevant to each of us, in our own lives, right now.
In this centennial year of Campbell's birth, we invite you join us in working with myth just as he taught us. Here at Pacifica, where Campbell's personal archives are housed, we will each undertake aHero's Journey right to the center of "our own hearts."
This three-day process of active dialogue between the great archetypes and the figures of our own psyche will give each of us the chance to experience the power, beauty, and profundity of myth that was Joseph Campbell's greatest legacy and gift to us.

This Seminar with James Hillman was held June 29-July 1, 2007 in Santa Barbara, California. The recording includes 9 CDs.
We are going back to basics, bypassing as best we can the contemporary flood of therapeutic theories and techniques. Psychotherapy rests upon—neither a couch, nor an armchair, nor a stack of texts—but on a simple three-legged stool. First the skills that come from practical engagement with the psyche. Second, the art of soul-making and its parallel with other arts. Third, a supportive philosophy.
In this seminar, we shall examine, both practically and archetypally, some of the basic diagnostic categories and their conventional understanding while attempting to grasp their underlying patterns. All along we shall be exposing the philosophical importance of the issues brought to therapy that are entangled in symptoms and problems—such as time, suffering, self, causality, beauty, intensity, purpose, surrender, destiny, love, and death. There will be ample time for detailed questions of practical therapy as well as for perplexities of the soul affecting any person’s life.
