Mandala of Individuation: An Integral Jungian Reinterpretation of Art History with Olena Provencher

In this podcast, we meet Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness Ph.D. Olena Provencher, who shares her journey from Russia to the USA and eventually being called to CIIS to pursue her unique vision to reinterpret her training in art history through a Jungian archetypal depth psychological lens. Olena is a painter and evolutionary thinker and describes her insights into how the Jungian notion of the mandala can help us reimagine artistic symbology through an integral psychological and philosophical framework. We discuss the philosophical lineage of Carl Jung and how Jung's later thought helped Olena activate a change of vision in approaching art history through an archetypal vision of the structure of the psyche which emphasizes the importance of the integrative point at the center of the mandala representing the transformative potential of human consciousness. Olena then shares examples of her Jungian interpretation of historical artworks and myths according to the mandalic four-point structure, or quaternity, as a skeleton-key of sorts, that opens and illuminates a deeper, archetypal dimension of art, activating individuation and alchemical transformation. The conversation ends by discussing the place and role of art in the 21st century and discusses how art can help overturn the dominant paradigm of capital consumption. We speculate upon the future of art and how one can re-enchant our postmodern Western view of art, re-envisioning art as an integral vision of the human Soul, radically open to the infinite. Olena (Olga) Provencher is a teacher, philosopher, depth psychologist, art history scholar, and artist. Born in Moscow, Russia, in 1967, Olena studied at the Moscow State Pedagogical University with a double major in painting and art history. In her Master's thesis, she explored the idea of the mandala as the archetypal structure at the foundation of ancient artworks. After graduation, she worked as a senior lecturer at the Moscow Academy of teachers' training and retraining and a middle school art teacher, while studying Russian philosophy and sophiology in the Academy's Candidate of Science program until her immigration to the United States in 1999. She received her Master's in philosophy from the University of North Florida, and a doctorate in philosophy and religion, with a concentration in philosophy, cosmology, and consciousness from the California Institute of Integral Studies. In her ongoing academic research, she works at the crossfield of art history and Jungian (Analytical) psychology. As a way to serve the community, she gives consultations as a Jungian Life coach. Olena lives in San Francisco, CA with her husband and younger son.

The federal Liberals handed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Laith Marouf, an “anti-racism” coach, who publicly called Jews “human feces” deserving a “bullet to the head, while also insulting Blacks, Indigenous people and others. As embarrassed officials scramble an “extensive review” into government anti-racism funding, Jonathan Kay, the Quilette editor who helped bring Marouf's hateful behaviour to light, joins Anthony this week to discuss how the Liberals, desperate to be woke, seemingly fell in with Marouf. And how “anti-racism” training and bigotry sometimes overlap in ways that can make haters feel at home. (Recorded September 1, 2022) Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In this episode we meet East-West Psychology MA Graduate, Shannon Gray, a trapeze artist and circus performer who after a devastating fall, came to EWP to process and explore this physical and psychological rupture in her life through studying the nature of injury and somatic psycho-spirituality. Shannon speaks about how one can fall back into their senses rooted in our bodies as a way to connect us to the natural world, as well as the body's capacity and potential to connect with soul. She shares her approaches to overcoming problems of disembodiment through confronting death and doing grief-work, as well as inner healing through deep relationality with animals. The conversation turns to the potential of artistic creativity to transcend the limitations of human conditioning by opening to cosmic forces beyond forms of traditional representation, and we discuss the contemplative practice of deep awareness of the small, or micro, which can lead to moments of radical presence, embodiment, and authentic creative expression. From the time she could remember, Shannon Gray's relationship with dreams and the unseen world was profound; as was her relationship with movement, creativity, and animals. The merging of these passions led her to discover circus arts at the age of 22. Over the years, Shannon has cultivated her unique and emotionally poignant approach to dance trapeze and has performed and taught internationally through circus festivals, aerial dance companies, and social circus organizations. In 2014, Shannon suffered a life-altering injury. This rupture of both body and spirit led her to seek out a masters in East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. The result of her studies became The Sentience Project: an embodied inquiry into injury, healing, and our connection to non-human animals. Shannon currently lives in Bolinas, California where she is completing her short film, The Sentience Project. Her performance life is deeply inspired by collaborations with other artists such as videographer, Lawrence Martinez, and musician, Mia Pixley. Shannon is a youth mentor, a surfer, and an animal rights activist.

Shannon Gray can be found passing the time doing what many would consider rolling, climbing, releasing, gliding and frolicking. She enjoys things which consist of water, mud, trapeze bars, sand and beautiful sounds. Shannon believes in the sense of permission to be exactly who we are and she is swept away-physically, emotionally, metaphysically- by all things that entail the journey to cultivate this sense. She loves her adopted, somewhat damaged cat, Flam Bam, staring at her crystal collection while listening to Hamlet Gonashvili, dreaming of and chasing perfect waves, dancing to the music of those who create it from the depth of their soul, teaching through asking questions and performing by surrendering the need to find answers. Shannon has spent many years cultivating her love of movement and curating her unique and expressive style. She draws specifically from somatic studies, dance, yoga and the practice of authentic movement. Born in Montreal, she has traveled extensively- training, performing and teaching. She currently lives in San Francisco where she continues to pursue her work and art and is in the midst of completing her master's degree in east-west psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Phillip has been Sundancing in the Lakota Tradition for the past 31 consecutive years, and he speaks of the cross-cultural nuances of how he was welcomed and accepted into this Indigenous tradition. The discussion turns to Truth and Reconciliation Day, which happened just before this recording, so we discuss modern issues of appropriation and commodification, the necessity of respect in relation to Indigenous peoples and cultures and the cultivation of patience and humility in the pursuit of embodied transformation on the Medicine Path. Phillip offers counsel on ways to approach Indigenous wisdom traditions with reverence as well as the means to decolonize contemporary shamanism. The conversation ends with the Chief speaking about Dance as a collective Prayer with our Ancestors, the Earth, and the Great Mystery.

In this episode we meet East-West Psychology Phd student, Qi Ge, who recalls early hardships in her life and how through a spiritual crisis she left her roots in China to come to the West. Qi shares experiences of inner alchemical transformation, finding what she calls her spiritual homeland through, dream work, expressive art and ancestral remembrance. Qi shares how she came into embodied spiritual practices, such as 5 animal Tai-chi she learnt from her Grandmother, and how the Daoist practice of the tea ceremony has allowed her to cultivate sitting in forgetfulness. Qi speaks of the need to cultivate an internal sense of home, stating “I used to search for groundedness externally, but now I know I am deeply rooted from within,” and our conversation discusses her psycho-spiritual journey of coming to this realization for herself. Qi Ge, also known as Brigitte, is a Spiritual Counselor and a PhD student in the department of East-West Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies. She is also a teaching assistant in the EWP department, as well as a bilingual neuroscience-based coaching program teacher. Qi has been studying in East-West Psychology for three years and found out that this is the true path of her heart that bridges western psycho-spiritual healing theories to eastern ancestral and philosophical traditions of inner and outer life-cultivation. Inspired by the teachings from Daoist meditative sitting in forgetting—坐忘 (zuò-wàng), Chan-Buddhist equanimity and wisdom—定慧 (ding-huì), and the Chinese traditional tea ceremony of non-doing—無為 (wú-wèi), Qi's research direction focuses initially on the healing manifestations by effortlessly emptying both the teacup and the heart of the ceremonial practitioner to be one with nature. Based on inquiries of cultural roots of liberation and today's world issues, Qi's Tea Ceremony of Sitting in Forgetting explores possibilities of an ancient tradition that is on its sacred Dao and unfolding life to be translated into a contemporary and future method of healing.

How did conspiracy theory grow from a fringe belief to a quasi-religious movement capable of toppling democracies? Ian and Dorian chart the rise of the tinfoil mindset in a wild historical ride that takes in the Illuminati, 9/11, Karl Popper, Watergate, Hitler, QAnon, Oliver Stone's JFK, and Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn's secret society. And chillingly, they explain why the tinfoil fringe isn't just on the fringe any more.  Help Ian and Dorian DO THEIR RESEARCH by supporting Origin Story on Patreon: www.Patreon.com/originstorypod –––––––– Conspiracy Theory: A Reading List From Dorian: Voodoo Histories by David Aaronovitch. Sharp and readable overview of the history and psychology of conspiracy theories. The United States of Paranoia by Jesse Walker. A provocative history which argues that paranoia permeates mainstream American politics, not just the fringes. Among the Truthers by Jonathan Kay. A reporter's journey through contemporary conspiracy theories. The Paranoid Style in American Politics by Richard Hofstadter. This brilliant diagnosis of the conspiracist mentality still holds up. The Hitler Conspiracies by Richard J Evans. Evans uses case studies including the Reichstag fire and the stab-in-the-back myth to illustrate the importance of conspiracy theories to the Nazi era. Very good on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the difference between event theories and systemic theories. The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon. The classic novel of American paranoia and the only Pynchon novel you can read in less than a week. The Coming Storm. Superbly reported BBC podcast series, presented by Gabriel Gatehouse, explores the 90s roots of QAnon. On JFK the movie: JFK: The Book of the Film by Oliver Stone and Zachary Sklar. The heavily annotated screenplay plus reams of press coverage of Stone's movie, much of it hostile. Reclaiming History by Vincent Bugliosi. Elephantine takedown of every single JFK conspiracy theory. There are no survivors. Christopher Hitchens on JFK and conspiracy theories in general. And from Ian: Conspiracy Theories by Quassim Cassam. The case for a political analysis. Worthwhile, but flawed. The Psychology of Conspiracy Theories by Jan-Willem van Prooijen. Decent little overview of the psychological work into the area. Also worthwhile, also flawed. –––––––– “The very fact that it's not proper scholarship makes conspiracy theory so much more exciting to read — and satisfying to write.” – Dorian “JFK is the most powerful argument I've seen yet that you should be able to sue for libel after you're dead.” – Ian “According to Hitler, the fact that the Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion had been called fake proved they were true…” – Dorian “Certain people believe that the CIA invented conspiracy theory in order to discredit people who criticised the Warren Commission. So that means that conspiracy theory is a conspiracy theory…” – Dorian –––––––– Written and presented by Dorian Lynskey and Ian Dunt. Audio production by Jade Bailey and Alex Rees.

Over the weekend, Australian voters elected a new government with the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and Anthony Albanese at the helm, ousting the ruling Liberal-National Coalition for the first time in a decade. Key to the ALP's landmark victory was the vote of the Indo-Australians, now the second largest immigrant group in Australia.A new Carnegie study co-authored by Devesh Kapur, Caroline Duckworth, and our very own Milan Vaishnav, sheds light on three elements of the Indo-Australian community's political behavior: the community's political preferences, leadership preferences, and policy priorities. This week, we put Milan in the hot seat to discuss his new study along with Caroline Duckworth, a James C. Gaither Junior Fellow in Carnegie's South Asia Program. We also wanted to turn the tables on Milan to ask him about his recent trip to Delhi—his first in the COVID-era. We talk about India's ongoing heat wave, the political mood in the country, and the fractures in Indian federalism. Caroline Duckworth, Devesh Kapur, and Milan Vaishnav, “Indo-Australian Voters and the 2022 General Election,” Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, May 18, 2022.Jonathan Kay, “A Heat Wave Has Pushed India's Dysfunctional Power System Into a Crisis,” Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, May 12, 2022.

Hosted by Stephen Julich (EWP PhD, adjunct faculty, EWP program manager) and Jonathan Kay (PhD student, EWP assistant) In this episode you will meet your podcast hosts, Stephen Julich and Jonathan Kay and learn a little about their journey to the East-West Psychology Department of CIIS. They will introduce the goals and format of the podcast and present a framework which situates academic fields of study and psychological and philosophical questions important to the East-West Psychology discourse community. This can be understood as a mandala of 4 cardinal points: Eastern philosophy, psychology and culture Western religion, philosophy and depth psychology Earth-based ecology, shamanism and indigenous religions World and cross-cultural perspectives on spirituality, psychology and contemporary culture. Stephen Julich has worked as an adjunct instructor in History and Anthropology at the City College of New York, as a lecturer in Jungian Studies at the University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles, and as an adjunct instructor at the California Institute of Integral Studies where he has taught classes on ensouled writing and Western Esotericism. Currently, Stephen is teaching a class on Western Magic and is preparing a class on the work of Jungian analyst Marie-Louise von Franz. Stephen holds a BA in Comparative Religion, an MA in Anthropology, an M.Div. from the New Seminary for Interfaith Ministers, and a PhD in East-West Psychology from CIIS. His general areas of interest are in the psychology of religion and myth, dreams, symbols, and consciousness studies.  Jonathan Kay is a professional musician, and is currently a PhD student in the department of East-West Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco under the mentorship of Dr. Debashish Banerji. He has been studying East-West philosophy and psychology based on the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo, and his dissertation research is focused on developing ideas about musical and transcultural hermeneutics. As a scholar-practioner in arts-based research, Jonathan is exploring the horizons between thought and sound inspired by the work of Gilles Deleuze and the non-standard philosophy of Francois Laruelle. Based on questions of cross-cultural translation and integration, Jonathan's music is exploring transcultural possibilities through experimental and contemplative models of improvisation. www.jonathankay.ca Connect with EWP: Website • Youtube • Facebook Learn more about your ad choices.

Editor, journalist and podcaster Jonathan Kay is the author of several books, has worked as an editor and columnist at the Canadian newspaper The National Post and is currently the Canadian editor of Quillette, a digital publication founded in 2015 as a haven for what Jonathan has called “ideological refugees. In this interview, he talks with Meghan about a range of topics, including a question Meghan has been pondering a lot lately:  What is a conservative? Though you wouldn't necessarily know it from his work over the last several years, Jonathan has spent much of his life identifying as a conservative. (His mother, the columnist Barbara Kay, has been a high profile conservative figure in Canada for decades.) He talked about what terms like “conservative” and “liberal” even mean in the post-Trump era, why he thinks political correctness hurts people on the left far more on the right and why he's losing interest in culture war topics and would rather focus on subjects like ancient history. Most of all, he talks about why it's time for “heterodox” thinkers to stop obsessing about culture war issues and pursue other interests.      Guest Bio: Jonathan Kay is Canadian Editor of Quillette, a TedX speaker, an op-ed writer at National Post, and co-host of the Quillette podcast. His freelance work has appeared recently in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Gotham, Canadian Jewish News, and other publications. Kay's books include Among The Truthers (2011), Legacy: How French Canadians Shaped North America (2016), Your Move: What Board Games Teach Us About Life (2019), Panics and Persecutions (2020), and Magic In The Dark: One Family's Century Of Adventures In The Movie Business (2022).
