Lesley University event imagines a new cosmos

Thomas Moore and cultural historian Richard Tarnas speak at Lesley University’s Marran Theatre in Cambridge, MA on October 18, 2009 at 4:00 pm for the event, Soul and Cosmos: A New Way of Imagining Life in the 21st Century. The Marran Theatre is at 47 Oxford Street between Harvard and Porter Sq. Promotional material includes, "Responding to our current global situation, Moore and Tarnas lead a public discussion about how the cosmology of a culture, the way it pictures the world, reflects its underlying values and psychology.

With a debt to Plato, Jung, and James Hillman among others, they further the archetypal perspective that could help us transition into a new century... In both writers, cosmos meets soul. Drawing on ancient and postmodern insights, these two contemporary thinkers inspire us to shift from an alienated and disenchanted world into a more ensouled and holistic one."

Tarnas and Moore will each speak for about thirty minutes before conversing with each other for forty-five minutes. The audience may listen to their questions and commentaries on each other’s work and will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers.

The event is free for the Lesley University community with ID and $15.00 for the general public. Tickets, not available at the door, must be purchased in advance from Arrive as early as possible. Seating is limited. Doors open at 3:30 pm.
