Dr Miltos Hadjiosif


Beginning with the articulation of "the disenchantment of the world" by Max Weber in 1917, this specialist workshop will look at the effort to recover from the sense of soullessness that has increasingly pervaded western culture for the last several hundred years.

The archetypal psychology initiated by C G Jung provides a potential alternative for the disenchanted, restoring our capacities for wonder and awe. In conjunction with this, recent research on ecological systems described in terms of complexity offers an additional link to synchronicity and psychoid phenomena, including a new way to "listen" to nature. 

Similarly, recent reconsideration of oracular traditions by classicists, placed in the context of contemporary exploration of altered/non-ordinary states of consciousness may provide another pathway towards re-enchantment. This project is oriented not solely to our current, collective difficulties, but also to the shape of our future.
