Today, we have the immense pleasure of hosting an extraordinary guest, Dr. Sandra del Castillo. With an illustrious academic background, holding both a Ph.D. and an M.A. in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, Dr. del Castillo is not just an academic but a true embodiment of the teachings she imparts.
As a teacher, storyteller, and ritual artist, she has traversed the rich cultural landscape of Mexico, living in four different states over fifteen years to connect with her ancestral roots. This profound journey not only inspired her dissertation on the Mexican Day of the Dead but also deepened her understanding of the archetypal wisdom woven into the fabric of Mesoamerican cosmovisions, philosophy, poetry, and mythology. Dr. del Castillo’s work comes at a critical Kairos moment in history, as humanity stands at the precipice of the Sixth Great Extinction.
Her artistry in ritual is a dance with the numinous, each piece a conduit of the soul’s language, offering healing and transformation to both the creator and the witness. With nearly three decades of facilitating ritual in diverse settings—from the classrooms of California and Oregon to the ancient pyramid sites of Mexico—she has honed her craft to perfection.
Dr. del Castillo also offers her wisdom through classes and workshops, including the transformative “The Art of Living Ritual: Re-animating an Ensouled Worldview.” Today, she brings her insights into our studio, sharing reflections and conversations that are not only thought-provoking but soul-stirring.
Her podcast, Blue Medicine Journal, is a treasure trove of Jungian wisdom, dedicated to the re-enchantment of our world. It's a call to awaken from the spell of disenchantment and journey into the blue—the soul realms—where dreams, myth, ritual art, and imagination become vital tools in the face of extinction.
So join us as we sit down with Dr. Sandra del Castillo, a Jungian mentor, ritual artist, dreamer, and the heart behind Blue Medicine Journal,
