The symbol of Magnum Opus; the great lifetime work, the greatness we are meant to manifest.
Opus Institute for Co-creative Leadership
Opus is a Latin word meaning work.
The Great Work (Latin: Magnum Opus) is an alchemical term for the process of working with the prima matter to create the philosopher’s stone. This is when you as the great alchemist of your life turn everything that has been given to you into the most precious thing it can ever be. This is when we turn our life into gold. Opus is about greatness.
Amor Fati! Love you fate! Put everything that life gives to you, from suffering, loss, and every event and talent and potentiality into work. The wound is the eye. It is a gate through which you will have access to the unconscious material. Remember! There is treasure in darkness. Use your talents and skills and creativity and life experiences to become the greatest you who can ever be! Even trauma is a treasure. It can be transformed into a talent, an ability to see things from a different angle. It may become a skill to understand others better and to communicate and connect on a deeper human level. An archetypal level through which we share our human experiences beyond nationality and race, beyond gender and age, and even beyond time with our ancestors and generations to come.
It’s all about greatness, but what is greatness, really? Is it about becoming rich and famous? Well, it can be! Yet, greatness is about shining in your essence which may or may not bring fame. If you do what you love and what you have been wired to do there is a much higher chance of getting great benefits for that. To do that, we need to be great leaders of our lives.
Opus is an online Institute, a co-creative circle of leaders who are committed to greatness in their own life, to bringing out the inner leader in others, and to changing the world one leader at the time. Join us! Be the Magnum Opus of your life and do the great work the human race and our planet Earth calls us into today.
