The mythology of Osiris, God of the Dead, originated in ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom and endured throughout 3000 years of dynastic rule.  During that time, his image evolved from a nature spirit to God of the Dead to Lord of the Underworld.  His mythology ended with the collapse of ancient Egypt but his spirit continued to transform and is with us even today.  He is the impulse of life, the vibration that rhythmically moves everything in life, from the rise and fall of our breath, the ocean’s waves, the cycles of sleep and waking, the seasons…life and death.  We can tap into this rhythmic energy by relating to Osiris as a psychological archetype.  By resonating with this primal rhythm we consciously move with nature, both within our bodies and with the universe.  When we are out of rhythm, things go horribly wrong!  It is time to bring Osiris back into our global, collective awareness.

Thom F. Cavalli, PhD is a licensed psychologist in private practice for 30 years in Santa Ana.  He is the author of Alchemical Psychology, Old Recipes for Living in a New World and Embodying Osiris, the Secrets of AlchemicalTransformation.

Poet and writer Mary Ann Moore recently reviewed To Be and How to Be: Transforming Your Life Through Sacred Theatre, by Peggy Rubin, on the Story Circle Book Reviews site!

An excerpt from this great review reads, “I have enjoyed and appreciated improvisation as well as acting workshops that include shamanic theatre practices, so I was anxious to read Peggy Rubin’s book, To Be and How to Be. The insight gained from my past experience helped my writing practice and I have found Rubin’s book wonderfully inspiring as well. I’m sure readers will be awakened to the possibilities of being stars in their own great play of life and create a home for the book on the ‘spiritual growth’ section of their book shelves.”

“This book, in my opinion, is a valuable contribution to the body of literature concerned with work on oneself. It is in the finest of the Hermetic traditions. I recommend it to those who are interested in both the theory and practice of self-transformation.”

Question 3

Could you outline for my readers the way their lives mirror theatre?

Perhaps it is more accurate to say that the theatre mirrors their lives, though since I am so focused on theatre and love it so deeply, one of my friends is fond of saying that for me, rather than theatre providing a metaphor for life, life provides a metaphor for theatre. People enact their lives as stories; they play many different characters in their own lives as well as in the lives of others; they perform on a stage (of the world); they have many different kinds of audiences; they do all this through vocal and physical expression (as actors do); they confront conflict; everything is alive and happening in this precious moment of now (exactly as in the theatre).Peggy Nash Rubin,

Psychological Perspectives, the journal of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, has reviewed Robin Robertson’s Indra’s Net: Alchemy and Chaos Theory as Models for Transformation!

In this opus, Robertson embarks upon a fascinating explorational journey at the edge of modern chaos theory and psychology. As a trained physicist who studied chaos theory, I particularly liked this balanced and comprehensive presentation…Its core insight is that the ancient alchemcial path, the most recently discovered path of complexity in chaos theory, and the individuation path in the psyche of individuals all share the same template of transformation, “a template that underlies all other paths of spiritual transfomration”.

The Mountain Astrologer, recognized as the best astrology magazine in the world, is featuring an in-depth interview with astrology’s beloved Alice O. Howell in its December/January issue!

Jungian psychologist Alice O. Howell is the author of acclaimed titles such as The Heavens Declare, Jungian Symbols in Astrology, and The Dove in the Stone!

When I was a child, I remember lying in a field with a friend on a summer day, and she asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up, and I said I wanted to unite religion and science…As I look back over my life, it’s clear that my job has been to find the sacred in the commonplace, because nothing in this world — nothing — exists outside of “As above, so below.” In other words, no object, either in nature or made by human hands, can exist without an archetypal process at its core. In my case, I start with below instead of above. And then I add: “As within, so without.”

 –Alice O. Howell
