Missing the Mark: The Seven Deadly Sins Viewed through the Lens of Depth Psychology

March 13, Friday Lecture 7:30 pm
members: $25; non-members $35; students $15

The word “sin” came originally from an archery term that meant “missing the target,” and suggested such errant aim arose more from inescapable human limitation than malevolence. This program will explore these most human of experiences—pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, sloth—through the lens of analytic psychology, and explore their causes, mechanisms, consequences, and challenges.

Portraits in Pathology

March 14, Saturday Workshop 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
members: $70; non-members $85; students $50;
CEUs $25

Given that “psychopathology” translates as “the expression of the suffering of the soul,” what are the generative forces that produce pathology? What are some examples of common pathologic states? What are our reflexive protections against pathology? What are the challenges of living in a pathogenic world, and with a pathologized soul?
