Allan Chinen - The Tao of Story: From Dracula to Bodhisattva - Lecture

$14.00

LECTURE: Stories inspire and shape our lives, from the archetypal dramas we unconsciously enact, to the jokes we make about the boss at work. Yet stories also plague us, and this lecture and workshop will focus on four such problematic situations. The first problem is being stuck in a story, endlessly repeating the same script. Examples include Sisyphus and Count Dracula. Fortunately, Scheherazade from "The Thousand and One Arabian Nights" shows a way out with her profound grasp of the psychology of story: we liberate ourselves from stuck scripts by journeying through five fundamental genres of story: myth, fact, fairy tale, legend, and the favored tale.

Allan Chinen, M.D., a psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco, is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. He is the author of In the Ever After, Once Upon a Midlife, Beyond the Hero, and Waking the World.

Allan Chinen - The Tao of Story: From Dracula to Bodhisattva - Workshop

$24.00

WORKSHOP: The workshop opens with the second narrative problem -- being lost among conflicting stories. With so many competing choices in today's postmodern, post-patriarchal era, we often feel lost. The nine Muses from ancient Greece help here by showing us criteria, based on the deep logic of stories, by which we can judge among tales. The third problem with life narratives is failing a story. Three stories -- the Buddhist tale, "The Brave Parrot," a Dalmatian story, "Destiny," and the drama of Krishna and Arjuna from the Bhagavad-Gita -- show us how to transform such failures. The fourth is being betrayed by a story. The Greek myth, "Oedipus at Colonus," provides a solution, corroborated by "The King's Ears," from Wales, and "The Old Man Who Lost His Wen" from Japan.

John Martin - The Archetype of Wholeness

$14.00

LECTURE: Martin understands this archetype to be synonymous with the Archetypal Self or the God-image. He looks at Jung's interpretation of the God-image as containing both good and evil. The lecture attempts to locate the origins of this understanding in Jung's Calvinist background, to indicate the psychological and religious problems inherent to such an understanding, and to suggest another way of looking at the matter.

John Martin earned his Doctor of Ministry degree at the Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville , Kentucky. He did a year's work with the Interregional Training Center for Jungian Analysts in Memphis. He has been the minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethton, Tennessee for the past thirty years, and has an extensive ministry as a pastoral counselor.

Murray Stein - The Reality of the Soul

$14.00

LECTURE: People have had experiences of the soul's transcendence since time immemorial. Yet we continue to wonder...What do these experiences prove? Do they offer a genuine vision of reality, or are they only products of human imagination? Are they rooted in human desire, in the wish for immortality, in projection? There are certain special moments in life, call them "openings to transcendence," when we confront a symbol and see reality as the unconscious, according to Jung, regards it all the time. In this lecture, Murray Stein invites the audience to reflect on such experiences of transcendence. These experiences can open us to question some of our deepest assumptions about the boundaries of the soul.
