The Power of the Erotic for Professional Life: Tapping the Intelligence and Wisdom of Eros, Longing, and Desire
Thursday, October 5, 6:30-8:30pm—The Laundry in the Mission, SF
«Many understand the powerful pull of attraction and desire in personal domains, but what is it to live a life that taps into the same kind of passion and longing for one’s work? The Greek god, Eros, is symbolic for one of the most powerful and numinous archetypal forces we can ever experience—one which emerges in every creative act, innovation, and artistic expression known. Eros is not limited to personal domains through sex and love; Eros is much greater and includes the highest expressions of passionate pursuit, driving desire, and a soul-level longing to merge with something other. This salon will bring attention to the ubiquity of Eros and the importance of allowing those creative forces to awaken parts of oneself in professional domains. The event will also celebrate the first anniversary of Jung and Sex, an acclaimed book that reveals C.G. Jung’s spiritual and archetypal contributions to a deeper understanding of human sexuality.»
***Event-goers: There is a cafe/bar in the front that serves beer and wine, as well as pizza, spinach artichoke appetizers, etc. There is a happy hour special for our group:
