Sylvia Perera - Sacrifice to the Fire, Surrender in the Light

$14.00

perera.jpg

LECTURE: Using an ancient Egyptian story of a shipwrecked traveler, we will look at the archetypal journey through terrorizing ordeals to suffer chaos, the loss of collective security, and the sacrificial defeats of ego that allow us "to die before we die." Such initiations, in our times again so necessary, can sometimes lead us beyond fear. Through opening the eye of the heart, they enable us to vision into and through the previously hidden light, just as they reorient our identities in the processes of the Self and the transcendent source that is the journey's goal.

Sylvia Brinton Perera is a Jungian analyst who lives, practices, teaches, and writes in New York City and Burlington, VT. Her publications include Descent to the Goddess: A Way of Initiation for Women; The Scapegoat Complex: Towards a Mythology of Shadow and Guilt; Dreams, A Portal to the Source

Bud Harris - Sacred Selfishness: The Path of Love and Authenticity

$14.00

budharris.jpg

LECTURE: "In his seminars on Nietsche’s “Zarathustra,” Jung emphasizes that we must eat the gold in the world until we are made of gold and not of hunger. If we do not, we will become empty people who consume ourselves and feed on others. Sacred Selfishness is the path of filling ourselves with gold. Its path is based on the basic quest stories that reveal the path of renewed personal consciousness and help us examine all our assumptions about ourselves and help us uncover our hidden potentials. Filling ourselves with gold is more than an intellectual exercise. It engages us fully in life and through growing self-knowledge softens and strengthens us while helping us to love life and other people. This lecture will explain how this idea evolved with Dr. Harris in the context of individuation. Dr. Harris will provide an overview of how this path unfolds theoretically and in everyday life. Sacred Selfishness is the foundation for growing self-knowledge and a deep love of life. It shows us how real love grows from the sure foundation of self-love. And, that without self-knowledge, our notions of love often reflect needy psychological pursuits, idealistic fantasies or sentimental hopes. Mind, body and spirit are connected by the level of consciousness we grow into. Growth is the path of love and individuation.

Bud Harris, Ph.D. , is a Zurich trained Jungian analyst practicing in Asheville, North Carolina."

James Hollis - Creating a Life - Lecture

$14.00

hollis.jpg

LECTURE: "Can we create our lives, or does life create us? How is it that we are free but choose such repetitive, self-defeating patterns? How does fate collide with destiny and catch us in between? What are the sources of those replications, and what the insights we need to maximize such freedom as we may have? These are the questions which haunt the modern who, wishing freedom, creates repetitions, yet longs for an authentic journey.

James Hollis, Ph.D. , is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst, author of nine books, most recently Creating a Life and On This Journey We Call Our Life, and executive director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston, Texas."

James Hollis - Creating a Life - Workshop

$24.00

hollis.jpg

WORKSHOP: "We can never be free to create our lives if we are in service to fixed, internalized, and largely unconscious ideas. We will engage questions which stir, sift, and raise consciousness of those deeply ingrained ideas which create or repeat patterns in our lives, for with consciousness comes the power to choose more freely."

Jeremy Taylor - A Little Night Music: Listening to the Background of the Body in Group Dreamwork

$14.00

taylor.jpg

LECTURE: Dreams have multiple layers of meaning. One of these layers is invariably about the body--a "snapshot" or "postcard" from the unconscious telling us all is well or, all is not well and what may be wrong. At this level dreams can be used as diagnostic tools; they offer insights into the way the body/mind is processing what is (and has) happened to us. Dreams reflect how we manifest our pain and how we can potentially heal and transform.

Jeremy Taylor, D. Min. , is known as an innovator of group process in dream work with over 30 years experience; he blends the values of spirituality with an active social conscience and a Jungian perspective. He is co-founder and past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and is the author of three books: Dream Work, Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill, and Living Labyrinth. Jeremy has also led workshops in Canada, England, Greece, the Netherlands, Mexico, Peru, and South Korea.

His areas of expertise include depth psychology, dream research, and imaginal and archetypal psychology.

Stephen Aizenstat - DreamTending - Workshop

$24.00

aizenstat.jpg

WORKSHOP: In an effort to help each dreamer connect with the archetypal imagination of the dream world, Dr. Aizenstat explores the following in his workshop:

  • The Personal Unconscious: Dreamwork methods drawn from Freud and the post-Freudians assist us in hearing the voices of the dream in relation to personal history and experience.
  • The Collective Unconscious: Archetypal methods of dream analysis based on the work of Jung, Hillman, Woodman, Lockhart, and others aid in connecting to the dream in light of the shared stories and archetypal images of the collective human psyche.
  • The World Unconscious: DreamTending as an emerging method which animates the living ecology of the wider landscape, reconnecting us to the realm of imagination and nature.

Pete Williams - Symbolic Loss in Today's Culture

$14.00

williams.jpg

LECTURE: Jung believed that the Western psyche experiences symbolic loss in the context of the dominant symbolic system, Christianity; “Our important collective symbols are religious. We are, surely, the rightful heirs of Christian symbolism, but somehow we have squandered this heritage. We have let the house our fathers built fall into decay”. This talk explores several aspects of our experience of “symbolic loss”. After first considering the phenomenon from an historical and psychological perspective, we will then discuss the recent book, “The DaVinci Code”, as an example of an attempt at symbolic repair; consider genetic science as an attempt at symbolic replacement; visit recent films such as “The Matrix” and “Matrix Reloaded” as expressions of its shadow; and imagine Jungian psychology as an emerging alternative.

Pete Williams, Ph.D. , is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta. He obtained his doctorate in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and is currently in analytic training with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. After a 25-year career as a business executive and CEO, he integrates into his practice his personal experiences regarding career transitions and other issues of adjustment to major life changes.

Jacqueline Wright - The Sweet Wound of Eros

$14.00

LECTURE: The initiatory role of Eros in the transformation of consciousness will be the focus of this talk. We will explore how the maturation of the soul unfolds through the lure of Eros, how it originates in a discovery of beauty and desire, how it ignites the imagination and awakens a longing for wholeness. This theme is most vividly portrayed in the myth of Eros and Psyche, which we will examine in some depth. The tale portrays the initiation and awakening of Psyche through love and takes us through all of the psychological and erotic ordeals that everyone encounters. It reveals the interplay of eros and psyche that takes place between people as well as within each person. We will also follow the trajectory of Eros by drawing on ancient texts, poetry and art in order to deepen our understanding of this paradoxical and powerful god and the role it plays in the unfolding of consciousness. Finally, we will look at how we suffer personally and collectively from the separation of eros and psyche and consider the implications and relevance of the topic to some of the major concerns we are experiencing in our culture today.

Jacqueline Wright, Ed.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Atlanta. She also lectures and conducts workshops on topics related to the psychology of C.G. Jung. She is a graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, past President of the Georgia Association of Jungian Analysts and a training analyst in the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.
