Wounds of the Self, Wounds of the Earth

This is a talk Michael gave on April 4, 2013, to graduate students and faculty at Sophia University in Palo Alto. Sophia University was previously called the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology.

Michael says, “Most of the students had a working knowledge of Carl Jung, James Hillman, and Roberto Assagioli, as well as of eco-psychology. They were young and irreverent and we had a very good time together.
