AN EVENING WITH RICHARD TARNAS

Friday, April 22, at 7:30 PM

Come meet philosopher Richard Tarnas, author of "The Passion of the
Western Mind,"
and hear his current thinking about how today's
political chaos and polarization, combined with changing social
structures and ecological crises have the potential to create a new
era of connected consciousness among humans. 

Living at the End of an Era
An Evening with Richard Tarnas
Friday, April 22, 7:30 pm.


According to Tarnas, as the old structures of the world are breaking
apart, the moment of creative chaos is now upon us. Will the future
continue as a disenchanted, mechanistic, purposeless universe or
random and isolated consciousness? Or will humans discover our
embeddedness and creative participation in a living cosmos of profound
meaning and purpose?

Join us for a lively discussion at the Foundation for Global
Community, 222 High Street, Palo Alto.
Tickets are $15, or $7 for students.


Space is limited and pre-registration is required. 
Call Samantha Schoenfeld at (650) 328-7756 or visit the website at

http://global-mindshift.org/events.html


Tarnas, who teaches philosophy and depth psychology at the California
Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, is writing a new
book, "Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View," which
will be published by Viking this fall.  His earlier book, "The
Passion of the Western Mind," is a history of the Western world view
from the Greek to the post-modern and it is used as a text in many
universities.

The program is co-sponsored by the Institute of Transpersonal
Psychology in Palo Alto.


Hope to see you at what promises to be a thought-provoking and
inspiring evening!

WORKSHOPS

A WORKSHOP FOR PSYCHOTHERAPISTS:

Psychological and Philosophical Implications of Diversity -- Equal Recognition or The Politics of Difference?

Alzak Amlani, Ph.D and Barbara Morrill, Ph.D

Santa Clara University.

Course Goals and Objectives:


What does respecting people as equals entail?

What does it mean to recognize the particular identities and philosophies of individuals with different cultural, ethnic, racial, religious and sexual orientations than the majority?

This workshop will encourage examination upon both sides of this debate and discover how these timely questions relate to us as mental health professionals. As psychologists we are called upon daily to reflect on the human condition in very specific, psychological ways. This diversity workshop will create a space to reflect upon our reflections and our philosophies and their origins. September 11th was a tragically stark reminder to reexamine our assumptions about what we share as human beings and what we do not. Sponsored by the Santa Clara County Psychological Association

Dr. Amlani conducts a variety of workshops each year. Please continue to check back here for details.
