Songlines of the Soul:

Pathways to a New Vision for a New Century

A Master Class with Veronica Goodchild

Songlines of the Soul: Pathways to a New Vision for a New Century is a story that focuses on the emergence of the subtle and imaginal realms coming back into prominence. Spirit and matter reach out to each other to heal the fractures of a split that has led to a devaluation of the feminine, the repression of the shadow, and the degradation of our Earth. Beginning with synchronicity and the psyche-matter mysteries that lie at its heart, this master class will explore the collective synchronicities of UFO, Crop Circle, and Near-death Experiences, all signatures of a new worldview that point to a psychophysical reality. They identify the resources of wisdom and the unfolding of an eros consciousness, which arises with these extra-ordinary events. Might we wonder if such events also signal the breakthrough of another dimensional (fourth or fifth) reality into our world. Such experiences balance our cultural focus on logos and symbolic thinking with direct experiences of an Other world. In this presentation, Veronica will present an overview of the themes in her new book, outline the signatures of a new worldview, include strategies for engagement with the subtle world, and offer exercises to experience its healing potential.

Veronica Goodchild, Ph.D., has been teaching at Pacifica Graduate Institute since 1999. She has always been interested in Jung’s psychology as a contemporary expression of the western esoteric and alchemical traditions. In recent years she has explored synchronicity as representing a profound paradigm shift in our view of reality, as radical as quantum physics is for the evolution of science. Currently, Veronica is delving into the shamanic origins of Jung’s work, in temple structures, stone circles and cave art. Veronica is the author of Eros and Chaos: The Sacred Mysteries and Dark Shadows of Love (2001, 2008) and Songlines of the Soul:  Pathways to a New Vision for a New Century (2012). She is an elected Affiliate Member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.
