Our speaker, Paul Venables, writes;

The Green Man is a carved male head, surrounded by or disgorging leaves. His image embodies the beautiful and the sinister, and can be seen as both a life and death force: he offers the possibility of a reconnection with our intuitive sense of nature. Despite his primordial roots, this figure continues to regenerate and has recently resurfaced as a contemporary image that challenges our attitude to identity and our place in the world. Coming at a time of crisis – when attitudes to our natural environment are seriously challenged – this talk will examine the positive and negative aspects of growth and how we might engage with this re-emerging image of the Green Man as a symbol to mediate and counterbalance our attitude towards nature, both inner and outer.

PAUL VENABLES is a Jungian Analyst with the Guild of Analytical Psychologists. He previously trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist at the Minster Centre in London and then as a supervisor at the Metanoia Institute. He has practiced both privately and in the public sector for twenty years. Originally an actor he worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company and in the West End, appearing regularly in television and film for over twenty years.
