I am Becca Segall Tarnas, a writer, artist, and doctoral candidate at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the Ecology, Spirituality and Religion program in San Francisco. I am writing my Ph.D dissertation on the theoretical implications of the synchronicity between the two Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien. I am also co-editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology, an academic journal dedicated to the discipline of archetypal cosmology. Issue 5, titled Saturn and the Theoretical Foundations of an Emerging Discipline, was published in summer 2016.
My first home was in Big Sur, California, which has always been the greatest inspiration for my deep love of the natural world. I was educated at the San Francisco Waldorf School for thirteen years before pursuing Environmental Studies and Theater Arts at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. I returned to the Bay Area several years ago to get my master’s degree in the Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness program at CIIS, where I co-facilitated the PCC Forum transdisciplinary lecture series with my husband Matthew Tarnas Segall from 2011-2015. My research interests include the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, Romantic philosophy, archetypal cosmology, and imaginal ecology.
