Particular attention is given to Jung’s appreciation and use of Gnosticism in his work and thought.

Some of the topics Joel will cover include: Jung’s relationship with music, musical dreams and non-rational creativity, applying Jungian approaches to working with music, musical active imagination and how archetypes, shadow and anima/animus images show up in sound.
