James Hollis - The Middle Passage: Revisioning the Sense of Self - Lecture

$14.00

hollis.jpg

LECTURE: The adolescent passage marks the transition from childhood into biological and social adulthood, but the middle passage invites the move to psychological adulthood. Whether obliged by outer changes or inner imperatives, the individual is obliged to ask: "Who am I apart from my history, apart from the roles I play?" If one untangles the skein of tapes, assumptions, projections, and complexes to which one has been in unwitting service, then one may move to an enlarged relationship to the Self which the journey of the second half of life requires.

James Hollis, Ph.D. , is a Zurich trained Jungian Analyst in private practice in Houston, Texas, where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center. He is a Senior Training Analyst of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and the author of eight books, the most recent being The Archetypal Imagination, and Creating a Life.

Jean Shinoda Bolen - Transforming Ourselves and the World

$14.00

jeanbolen.jpg

LECTURE: The archetype of the sacred circle, feminism, Jungian psychology, and Rupert Sheldrake's Morphic Field Theory come together in Jean Shinoda Bolen's visionary and practical work on women's circles and their transformative potential. Drawing on the story of "The Hundredth Monkey," which inspired anti-nuclear activists, "the millionth circle" depends upon a simple hypothesis: when a critical number of people change how they think and behave, the culture will also, and a post-patriarchal era will begin. In this talk, she describes the Grail Legend as a planetary story and discusses the parallels between the analytical container and the qualities that make the circle a growth medium for its members.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. is a Jungain Analyst, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco, and the author of The Tao of Psychology, Goddesses in Everywoman, Gods in Everyman, Crossing to Avalon, Ring of Power, Close to the Bone, The Millionth Circle, and Goddesses in Older Women. She is a former member of the Ms. Foundation for Women and the International Transpersonal Association.

Jean Shinoda Bolen - We Are Spiritual Beings On a Human Path

$24.00

jeanbolen.jpg

WORKSHOP: Myths of descent into the underworld illuminate the nature of the spiritual journey. The disasters and unexpected epiphanies of everyday life can bring us to what we know at a soul level, or yearning to be authentic. Jung's emphasis on individuation and Joseph Campbell's challenge to us to find our personal myth depend on making choices that ring deeply true for us. In her perennial classics Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman and now in Goddesses in Older Women (about archetypes in women over fifty), Jean Shinoda Bolen brings our archetypes to life and enables us to recognize them in ourselves. In this workshop, you will hear myths of descent and return that can take you into the symbolic realm of the pysche—where the soul dwells. By listening to Jean tell stories, you may realize the significant themes in your own life. In a guided meditation, you may find personal symbols and sources of wisdom. This is an opportunity that may activate or recharge your inner life.

Jerry Wright - Cultivating a Religious Attitude

$14.00

JerryWright.jpg

LECTURE: This lecture explores Jung's famous quote (CW:11:par. 509):

Among all my patients in the second half of life—that is to say, over thirty-five—there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life. It is safe to say that every one of them fell ill because he had lost what the living religions of every age have given to their followers, and none of them has really been healed who did not regain his religious outlook. This of course has nothing to do with a particular creed or membership of a church.

The presentation addresses the loss of a sense of the sacred and ways to cultivate its recovery in everyday life and in psychotherapy/analysis.

Jerry Wright is trained as a Jungian Analyst, Pastoral Counselor, and Licensed Professional Counselor. He received his analytical training from the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. He is particularly interested in the convergence of analytical psychology and theology and how the two disciplines and their symbols inform the processes of analysis, spiritual development, and individuation.

Nor Hall - On the Necessity of Infidelity in Women

$14.00

LECTURE: In 1910 Lou Andreas-Salomé wrote a book on The Erotic in which she insisted that Woman, capital 'W', needed redefinition. Her vision included profound freedoms that shocked some (Frederich Nietzsche's sister for example), inspired many (specifically Rilke) and delighted others (Freud among them). In this talk Nor Hall tells the story of Salomé's ideas and how they developed in the same European cradle that birthed depth psychology. Last year Hall was a collaborator in an Archipelago Theatre operatic production called "A New Fine Shame" about the life and loves of Salomé. Themes explored in the opera as well as in the lecture include the fate of the woman who functions as Muse, the relationship between eros and intellectual pursuits, the marriage question, and jealousy.

Nor Hall is a writer, archetypal thinker, psychotherapist and theatre-collaborator from St. Paul, Minnesota. She went to Beloit College and the University of California, Santa Cruz for a PhD. in the History of Consciousness. Her books include The Moon and the Virgin: Images of the Archetypal Feminine, Broodmales, and Those Women.

Paula Reeves - Dreams and Symptoms: Soul's Elegant Repair Kit

$14.00

LECTURE: Rumi writes: We may worry about death, but what hurts the Soul the most is never to have tasted the waters of it's own essence. For it is at our very essence that the roots of our unlived life lies. Untended, never brought to consciousness, these roots fail to set forth branches, to flower and offer the harvest of an authentic life--the life intended at our conception. In this talk, Paula will lead us back to our own roots in utero and offer us an opportunity to inquire into the unlived life waiting to be uncovered.

Paula Reeves is a psychotherapist, living in Stone Mountain and practicing in Atlanta. She has a committed interest to the relationship between spirit and matter, which has led her work with symptoms as metaphor for the unlived life. Paula lectures worldwide for many professional groups, both psychological and medical. Her interest and experience in working with metaphors of psyche and matter have led to the publication of her book, Women's Intuition: Unlocking the Wisdom of the Body.

Stephen Howard - A Vision of Evil

$14.00

LECTURE: Western civilization has sharply divided good and evil, light and darkness, the wicked and the sacred. This artificial dichotomy produces religious, social and political polarization. It allows the development of simplistic psychological formulations that are more about moralism than science or personal experience. In psychotherapy, it inclines us to work on "resolving" issues by attempting to root out psychopathology, as if one could amputate parts of the soul and still be fully human. Stephen Howard presents some of his recent thinking about human evil. The subject will be approached through psychological, mythological and theological perspectives. This lecture attempts to grasp elements of evil as essential to our wholeness and as prelude to the sacred in our lives.

Stephen Howard, M.D. is a psychiatrist practicing, teaching and writing in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been writing and conducting workshops on spiritual concerns in psychotherapy, and recently guest-edited an issue of Voices built on that theme.

Virginia Apperson - Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child

$14.00

virginia.jpg

LECTURE: Too often, the Great Mother is identified in a negative, castrating light or reduced to a sentimental version of the Virgin Mary. Many believe that her power has been long since buried. Nonetheless, most psychological theories emphasize the necessity of good mothering, or at least "good enough" mothering for psychological survival. Can we achieve this maternal challenge if we still cooperate with a patriarchal mindset? How have we been at odds with our own belief system? What are the ramifications for the personal mother? After all these years of neglect, does Mother even want anything to do with us? This lecture attempts to discover the complexity of the archetypal Mother. Perhaps, by honoring her in this way, we can bring her into greater consciousness and develop a new, improved relationship with her.

Since receiving her Master's degree in Psychiatric Nursing, Virginia Apperson has worked in a variety of psychiatric settings with children, adolescents and adults. Her belief in the creative potential within each one of us led to her training at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. In addition to her analytic practice, she works with couples, leads dream groups, and lectures on Jungian topics.

Bradd Shore - Of Death, Home, and American Family Ritual

$14.00

LECTURE: Ordinarily ritual celebrates continuity and unity. For modern American middle class families, family ritual is made complicated by the fact that, virtually unique among the world's family systems, the ultimate purpose of the American middle-class family unit is to self-destruct, propelling its junior members into the world to make new families on their own. This talk explores some of the ramifications of this structural anomaly: American obsession with maintaining "family values," the myths of terrible teenagers and dysfunctional parents, and the ambivalence evident in how middle-class Americans talk about "home."

Bradd Shore, Ph.D. is Professor of Anthropology at Emory University, where he directs the Emory Center for Myth and Ritual in American Life. He is also currently President of the Society for Psychological Anthropology. His books include Sala’ilua: A Samoan Mystery, Culture in Mind: Culture, Cognition and the Problem of Meaning and How Culture Means. His current work involves studying ritual and collective meaning-making in Southern middle-class working families.
