Mysterium: A Poetic Prayer
Testimonials on Body/Spirit Coniunctio
A DVD filmed, edited, and directed by Antonella Adorisio
Music by Donatella Caramia, Lorenzo Pierobon
Post production: Marcellino de Baggis - Onionskin
Guided by awareness of the integrative nature of the psyche, Mysterium bridges polarities and communicates in a way that links together matter and spirit, thoughts and emotions, images and reflections. Testimonials on spirituality and on the body/spirit coniunctio from 12 Jungian analysts from Italy, U.S.A., Venezuela, and India are joined with images from different countries around the world and testimonials from practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism in India and in Nepal. A multiplicity of experiences is collected mirroring the many in the One. Through the flow of water, Mysterium unfolds as a poetic prayer and reflects the language of the soul. External lands are seen as interior landscapes.

Testimonials from: Antonella Adorisio, Paola Carducci, Joan Chodorow, Michael Conforti, Priscilla D'Alessandro, Matteo Karawatt, Rafael Lopez-Pedraza, Father John Malecki, Margarita Mendez, Robert Mercurio, Lama Ciampa Monlam, Tina Stromsted, Vincenzo Tallarico, and Tenzin Tsomu.

Mysterium was presented at the XVIII International Congress of Analytical Psychology (IAAP, Montreal 2010). A previous and much shorter version was presented in Cape Town 2007 (XVII IAAP International Congress) and in Italy 2003 (CIPA XII National Congress).

Praise for Mysterium
"With grace, wisdom, artistry, and a profound understanding and experience of psyche, Antonella Adorisio captures the true confluence of psyche and matter in this magnificent video. In it we see how it is that spirit enlivens matter and how our relationship with matter can bring us into the realm of the ineffable, and into the domain of psyche and spirit."
MICHAEL CONFORTI, PH.D., JUNGIAN ANALYST, FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF THE ASSISI INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF ARCHETYPAL PATTERNS
"If you are interested in the Body/Spirit connection and active imagination, don't miss this film! Antonella Adorisio's Mysterium shows the ongoing, continuous relationship between nature and culture, with special attention to the moving Self. The sacred in ordinary life is made visible; postures and gestures in art going back to antiquity appear and reappear today among children, grown-ups, and our animal cousins in many parts of the world. A beautiful and significant work with multiple overlapping facets!"
JOAN CHODOROW, PH.D., ANALYST MEMBER, C. G. JUNG INSTITUTE OF SAN FRANCISCO; EDITOR, JUNG ON ACTIVE IMAGINATION
"Mysterium is a healthy immersion into the 'images of the soul' evoking profound reflections. A return to the deep rooted and mysterious core of Analytical Psychology that we recently have had the good fortune to revisit in reading Jung's Red Book. A soul nourishment which opens up to hope without illusion...a guide along the paths of the worlds...removed from the tyranny of space and time. An opening that invites us to meditation...to encounters with Anima Mundi."
WILMA SCATEGNI, JUNGIAN ANALYST, AUTHOR OF PSYCHODRAMA, GROUP PROCESSES AND DREAMS—ARCHETYPAL IMAGES OF INDIVIDUATION
"Mysterium is a contribution to understanding different approaches to spirituality in Jungian thought and in the world through Antonella Adorisio's own extraordinary creative journey."
MARGARITA MENDEZ, JUNGIAN ANALYST, DIRECTOR OF STUDIES OF THE VENEZUELA SOCIETY OF JUNGIAN ANALYSTS

"Where We Are: Jungian analysts in the 21st Century masterfully takes us into the lives and psyches of nine Jungian analysts practicing in these times. The film speaks with deeply felt honesty and passion, reminding all of us what brought us to Jung in the first place. It is a fertile source of inspiration and wisdom for people seeking meaning in their lives. I highly recommend it."
--Linda Schierse Leonard, Ph.D., Jungian analyst and author of The Wounded Woman, On The Way to the Wedding, and The Call to Create

"A beautifully produced, deeply moving portrait of what it is to be a Jungian analyst in America today. We see and hear a fascinating variety of Colorado analysts, male and female, think and feel deeply about the individuation process and their role in that process. Thereís not an ounce of pretense in a single one. I liked them all."

This film is about breaking through our own limiting notions of ourselves, allowing Eros, the god of desire, to be part of our lives, and summoning the courage to follow his lead. The story is told through interviews with respected Jungian analyst and author Lyn Cowan (Masochism, 1982, Tracking the White Rabbit, 2002, Portrait of the Blue Lady, 2004), as she talks about how the themes of desire and courage have woven through her own life. Interspersed are portions of two of her recent public lectures, Eros: Let Desire Rule and Seabiscuit,in which these archetypal themes, and her personal experiences, are amplified by the stories of Eros and Psyche and of the great racing horse Seabiscuit, and by scenes from the films American Beauty and Seabiscuit. The result is a rich stew of words and images that movingly depict the psychological process of individuation.
