Deep Blues: Human Soundscapes for the Archetypal Journey explores the archetypal journey of the human psyche through an examination of the blues as a musical genre. The genesis, history, and thematic patterns of the blues are examined from an archetypal perspective and various analytic theories--especially the interaction between Erich Neumann's concept of unitary reality and the blues experience.  Mythological and shamanistic parallels are used to provide a deeper understanding of the role of the bluesman, the blues performance, and the innate healing potential of the music.

Join Bonnie Bright with blues musician, Mark Winborn Ph.D, NCPsyA, Jungian Psychoanalyst and Clinical Psychologist. He received his PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Memphis in 1987 and his certificate in Jungian Psychoanalysis from the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts in 1999.
