Course Fee: $125; 10% off for members
What did the composer John Cage and the psychoanalyst Carl Jung have in common? A fascination with the I-Ching, the teachings of the Hindu saint Ramakrishna, and Buddhism as introduced to the West by D.T. Suzuki and sacred Tibetan texts. Participants will listen to Cage’s music and explore his theory of Silence, study Jung’s theories of the psyche and his thoughts on East-West dialogue, and sample a variety of attention focusing, meditative practices to explore how Eastern thought has inspired artists and psychologists, as well as their relevance in our lives today.
No experience necessary. All materials included. Registration is required, as space is limited.
