Laurence Hillman and Host Michael Lerner

Astrology, Archetypal Psychology, and the Cosmos

Join archetypal psychologist and astrologer Laurence Hillman in conversation with Host Michael Lerner about the archetypes that define our lives and organizations, and which can help us live our life’s true passion and purpose.
