An evolutionary path through our current planetary crisis is explored
through the myth of Oedipus, ancient Orphic origin stories, and
C. G. Jung’s The Red Book.

The choice to “take the red pill,” has entered popular culture as a
metaphor for the choice to wake up to the constructed nature of our
experience and the bitter truth it hides. Ironically, alt-right theorists
and more recently, Elon Musk, urge us to take the red pill. In this
seminar we will trace this theme back to the myth of King Oedipus,
who chose to learn the hard truth about his ancestry to discover
the cause of a plague decimating his people. In Sophocles’ telling,
Oedipus then suffers a kind of initiation, ultimately emerging as a
prophet with power to bless the earth.

In analytical psychology, the decision to unmask the delusions of
ego, or of the dominant culture, to reveal the truth of who we really
are and reckon with what we have done to one another and our planet,
is the portal to wholeness, key to our evolution as a species, and our
path into a new age, Jung’s “Age of the Holy Spirit.”
