Katabasis conference – Registration open

The Descent of the Soul: Katabasis and Depth Psychology

Freud Museum, 20 Maresfield Gardens, London NW3 5SX

Friday 5 to Saturday 6 July 2019


Registration is now open for a conference in London: ‘The Descent of the Soul: Katabasis and Depth Psychology’, to be held at The Freud Museum in July.

The programme includes numerous papers relating to myth studies, e.g. Inanna’s descent to the underworld, Savitri’s encounter with Yama, the lord of death, and studies of several Greek figures (including Odysseus, Orestes, Orpheus and Eurydice).

It follows a highly stimulating conference at the same venue in 2016 on ‘The Ecstatic and the Archaic‘. This year’s conference features a reading by Ruth Padel, and once again offers the unique experience of being able to gaze at Freud’s library and couch during the breaks.
