Donald Kalsched - Early Trauma and Dreams

$14.00

blindprince.jpg

LECTURE: Experiences in early childhood that cause unbearable psychic pain or anxiety (trauma) can leave the personality and the human spirit threatened with destruction. To avoid this, a defensive splitting of the self occurs in which a "progressed" part of the self casts a spell over a "regressed" part and locks it up in an inner sanctum for safekeeping. This self-encapsulation is out pictured in dreams during the psychological process. In this lecture, using dream examples from the clinical situation and the fairy tale of Rapunzel, we will see how the wisdom of the psyche's archetypal defenses saves the imperishable personal spirit from further trauma, but at the price of cutting it off from life. Psychotherapy of this "trauma complex" and its primitive resistances will be discussed.

Donald Kalsched - From Bewitchment to Enchantment: Transformational Process in the Psychoanalysis of Trauma

$24.00

blindprince.jpg

WORKSHOP: Patients who have suffered severe early trauma often find themselves bewitched by dark tyrannical voices assaulting them from within, leading to intense anxiety and depression. In dream work with such patients, the dark inner voices reveal themselves as both archaic and typical--hence archetypal--personifications whose inner purpose seems to be the defense of a vulnerable core of selfhood to make sure it is never violated again. However, in defending the true self against further trauma, the archetypal defenses also persecute and demoralize it, cutting off all hope for life-in-relationship to others. Under these conditions, the positive side of the Self cannot constellate and the individuation process cannot get started. In successful depth psychotherapy, these archetypal defenses slowly lose their power as their daimonic energy slowly becomes humanized in the transference and is transmuted into a mature capacity for love and creative living (enchantment).

Pete Williams - Exploring Among the Roots of Depth Psychology

$14.00

williams.jpg

LECTURE: C. G. Jung was undoubtedly one of the great original thinkers of the modern period. His insights into the nature of the human psyche have profoundly influenced and forever changed our psychological theories and paradigms. However, Jung’s great genius lies not only in his originality but also in his capacity to identify, assimilate, and articulate the ideas and concepts that have been central to the development of human consciousness over many thousands of years. Jung continuously mined these roots of depth psychology from which he recovered the gold that would inform much of his life’s work. This lecture attempts to gain a better understanding of a few important, core concepts of Jungian psychology by also going back to their original roots in human history. On this exploration, we will wander among early animistic cultures, visit the site of the ancient Eleusinian mystery religion, and move through early Greece from Homer to Plato. We will travel to the 2nd century in order to briefly consider the influence of the early Gnostics, and then leap forward to discuss the impact of Copernicus and the contributions of Descarte. In between and along the way, we may also make a few additional, quick stops.

Pete Williams, Ph.D., is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta. He recently completed his Doctoral studies in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. After a 25 year career as a business executive and CEO of a manufacturing concern, Pete integrates his personal experiences regarding life transitions and other issues of life adjustment into his practice. He emphasizes a Jungian approach to psychotherapy with particular focus on the use of dream work as a way to access and realize our individual creative potential.

Peter Elting - Jungian Dream Enactment

$14.00

elting.jpg

LECTURE: Dreams can be dark or bright, synchronous, meaningful, and/or prophetic. We can put many words to this wondrous and mysterious language of the unconscious. Jung said the dream is "a hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of our soul." Often we have to use many different keys to unlock this door. In this lecture, Dr. Elting will discuss the tenets of Jungian dream-work, with a specific focus on active imagination and J. L. Moreno's theories of psychodrama and enactment. Through enactment, emotions often surface more readily than in the usual associative process of psychotherapy. Enactment increases our understanding of the dream drama. As we increase our capacity for creative spontaneity, complexes and shadow move more into the authentic here and now.

Peter H. Elting, Ph.D. , is a certified Jungian Analyst. After an extended business career as a CEO of a Multi-National Corporation, he completed his training at the C.G. Jung Institute and the Institute for Psychodrama in Zurich. In his analytic practice he focuses on life transitions and dream enactment. Dr. Elting is a member of the North Pacific Institute for Analytical Psychology, the International Association for Analytical Psychology, the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama, and a Training Analyst with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.

Pittman McGehee - The Three Threads of Individuation: Biological, Psychological, and Mythological

$14.00

pittman.jpg

LECTURE: Among Jung's most complex and seminal concepts is that of the archetypal structure of the collective unconscious. Individuation is the human urge, drive or longing for the ultimate goal of the human process, which is wholeness. There are three simultaneous processes occurring in the evolution of consciousness. These processes can be viewed biologically, psychologically, or mythologically. The rhyme and rhythm of the universe is union, separation and reunion, so it is with cellular structure, as well as consciousness from the unconsciousness. The fetus must leave the womb, the ego must leave the unconscious, Adam and Eve must leave the garden. Thus, it is the archetypal nature of individuation and the evolution of consciousness, to separate in order to reunite at a higher or deeper level. This lecture addresses the natural process of individuation, as well as, the implications of what results when this process is interrupted or retarded.

J. Pittman McGehee received his Master of Divinity from the Virginia Theological Seminary and was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church in 1969. He received an honorary Doctor of Divinity from the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest. Formerly the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston, he is currently a Diplomate Jungian Analyst and the director of the Institute for the Advancement of Psychology and Spirituality. Additionally, he is serving as the Carolyn Faye Professor of Analytical Psychology at the University of Houston. Pittman is widely known as a lecturer and educator in the field of psychology and religion, as well as a published poet and essayist.

Tom & Mary Ellen Lavin - Where has all the Wonder Gone
$14.00

LECTURE: The history of humankind is full of examples of our need to have a space and a place for the Divine. For example:

  • The Taoist model or Rainmaker model images the Divine within.
  • The alchemical/therapeutic model images the Divine between.
  • The social/community model images the Divine among.
  • The synchronistic/immanent model images the Divine around.
The numinous is at the core of all religious experience. This lecture is an invitation to wonder about the evolution of our images of the place and space of the Divine as well as a short introduction to Alchemy.
