The lecture focuses on the March from Selma to Montgomery and the development of culture through the implementation of the eightfold path of nonviolence (Gandhi’s concepts of Satyagraha and Ahimsa and King’s six tenets). The talk will utilize the civil rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s; specifically, the march from Selma to Montgomery as the metaphor for political, psyche and the Self’s unfolding in culture. The talk also looks at the process of activism as individuation, a vital and necessary movement in the development of the ego/Self relationship. Archetypal nonviolence provides the bridge between ego and self, the individual and culture. In this light, we explore how the implementation and consistent practice of nonviolence potentiates and/or cultivates a conscious life.
