Dream – Archetype – Numen
Inner Circle Seminar No. 82
Sunday 7 November 2004
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
DAVID HARSENT is a poet. He will read from Lepus, his cycle of poems influenced by JOHN LAYARD’s The Lady of the Hare – being a study in the healing power of dreams (1944), the first detailed account of a Jungian analysis. We shall also hear a recording of HARRISON BIRTWISTLE’s The Woman and the Hare, for which HARSENT has written the libretto, sung by his wife JULIA ROBERTS.
DAVID SINGMASTER is a metagrobologist – a specialist in mathematical puzzles such as the Rubik cube. He has researched the three-hares and similar motifs from around the world. He will show how they arise naturally from formal, mathematical considerations.
ANTHONY STADLEN is an existential psychotherapist. He reports on his 15-year research on The Lady of the Hare. He examines LAYARD’s claims: that the dream of killing a hare was a spiritual-sacrificial turning-point; and that mythology reveals a hare ‘archetype’.
