What is magic? We tend first to think of magic as something supernatural, but fundamentally it is an expansion of relatedness that allows boundaries to open and energy to flow. It also connects us to our own bodies and to the earth. We will explore the idea of magic in the works of C.G. Jung, psychotherapist Arnold Mindell (Dreambody and The Shaman's Body), and writer Alice Hoffman (The Red Garden). And we will consider how cooking reflects a kind of magic that connects parts of the earth across space and time, using such films as Like Water for Chocolate and Soul Kitchen as guides.
