#417 – A Jungian Understanding of Crop Circles with Gary Bobroff, MA

Gary Bobroff

Gary S. Bobroff, M.A. is the author of Crop Circles, Jung & the Reemergence of the Archetypal Feminine (North Atlantic, 2014). He has a Master’s degree in Jungian-oriented Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute of Santa Barbara, CA. Gary writes and speaks internationally, exploring the ancient themes that draw us further into engagement with life’s deep mystery. Gary’s book looks at the science, history and symbolic nature of Crop Circles and his goal is to present a framework for the reader’s own deeper consideration of this modern mystery.

Taking a Jungian approach, he looks for meaning in the nature of this phenomenon as being placed into grain and geocentric forms. Finding the archetypal Feminine present there, he looks at both the phenomenon itself and the nature of the era into which it has arrived, placing the and places a modern “dream” into the context of modern reality. Both psychologically grounded and open to the inspiring awe of this new phenomenon, his approach is accessible to everyone and no prior exposure to Jung or Crop Circles is required. He has been privileged to explore Crop Circle formations in Canada, the United States and Great Britain.

He is also the producer of the upcoming Synchronicity Symposium to be held in Joshua Tree, CA Sept 12, 13 and 14, 2014.

    Listening to Gary almost turns me into a logical positivist! As funky as i like to go sometimes in my thinking, the scientific method and associated intellectual rigour really has something going for it! Not that it is everything, but the scientific method is an advance on the magical thinking of previous eras. What if it is people making the crop circles (as some claim to be doing)?
