The Philosophical Rose and Healing the Soul

This lecture and workshop series will take the participants on an intimate journey through Jung’s alchemical work bringing light to the healing  process, the journey of individuation and the synchronicity that exist between dream work, astrology and Alchemy. These entertaining and interactive presentations will leave the participants inspired to integrate these elements in their personal and professional practices. Martin Comtois brings 30 years of studies and practice to his lively and engaging  presentations.

In his essay “ The Psychology of the Transference" in Volume 16 of his collected works, C.G.Jung used the Rosarium Philosophorum, a 15th century alchemical text and series of wood cut prints, to describe the process of healing and the effect of the transference on the relationship between the healer and the healing. This essay was meant as an introduction to the Mysterium Coniunctionis,  his treatise on Alchemy and his magnum opus, a book that took Jung ten years to write and that was the last main literary contribution of his life. In this lecture Martin will introduce us to Alchemy's and Astrology's basic premises by taking us through the woodcut slides one by one bringing to life the Philosophical Rose and how it inspired, affirmed and confirmed Jung’s work on Healing the Soul.


Martin Comtois has been a student of Astrology and various forms of Mysticism for most of his life. He began his astrology practice 12 years ago and through the perils of analysis developed a passion for Jung and his work. In reading Jung’s alchemical works his astrology was greatly influenced and his practice enhanced by the concepts of analytical psychology. In 2017, while in a winter retreat, Martin tackled Jung’s magnum opus the Mysterium Coniunctionis, his last major work. Inspired by this text Martin began a journey of articulating his ideas in what he calls "The Healer and The Dreamer: Astrology for a New Age". This book and workshop series seeks to provide the healer, the artist and the mystic with insight into dream work, astrology, alchemy and the techniques of the analytical psychology Carl Gustav Jung . These workshops he is presenting are part of this series.
