Let the Numinous Unfold You

In this compelling lecture, Jean Shinoda Bolen takes us to those moments in our lives where we have felt connected to something that is greater than us. In these moments, we feel beloved by the universe and know that we matter. Jean helps us recognise a numinous experience and then encourages us to take that all-important step of making it meaningful.

Jean generously shares insights from her years of experience as an analyst and activist. She helps us see a numinous experience when we have one and what its role can be in the unfolding of our life.

Course Description

This course turns our attention to those awe’-some and ‘wonder’-ful moments in our life to which we give the term Numinous. Wonder is something that the inner child or archetypal divine child in us instinctively feels. As human beings, we wonder, we have curiosity and we are drawn to things. The numinous is, thus, within everyone’s reach: call it grace, serendipity, synchronicity, fate or anything else!

Jean Shinoda Bolen, senior Jungian analyst and author of the bestselling books ‘Goddesses in Everywoman’ and ‘Gods in Everyman’ does not take a theoretical route to the Numinous in this lecture. Instead she weaves bits and pieces from her life & work, to illustrate the mysteries of numinous moments. In her telling, she highlights the importance of taking those moments a step further. And here is her most important contribution to us through this lecture: Jean pushes us to not only have the experience but to revive its meaning. She encourages us to remember experiences, reflect upon them and delve more deeply into what the meaning of the experience is. She asks us to wonder about things we may not have ever wondered about before. 

Jean fills the lecture with stories and anecdotes to illustrate the role the numinous can play in our lives. She refers to times of profound hardship, sickness and suffering, our work, our creativity, death and birth, the all-too-human moments of fear or even just doing something out of our daily routine. 

In this intimate lecture, Jean makes a case for not leaving a numinous experience at the moment of feeling its awe and wonder. She encourages us to draw more from it. She closes the lecture with a beautiful moment that stays with you long after  Jean is gone from your computer screen.
