Jungian analyst and psychotherapist Sarah Jackson will share her overview of the traditional hero, heretofore male, and the contemporary hero, who is not so strictly gendered. This lecture, accompanied by images, and discussion will focus on Sarah's particular interest: the new female heroes who are showing up in contemporary film-- cinema being the medium where our mythology is most visible. We will explore what these new heroes have to tell us about our own heroism as women.
In addition to being a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, Sarah is a professional visual artist, as well as a writer. Her paintings, drawings and paperworks have been exhibited widely in the Berkshires, New York City, and elsewhere.
