James Hollis - Dark Selves: Why Good People Do Bad Things

$14.00

hollis.jpg

LECTURE: One of the richest of Jung's contributions to our understanding of psyche, is the idea of the Shadow, those parts of our own being which are threatening to our ego, and which so often act independently of our wills. The Shadow is not evil, as such, though it may bring great harm to self and others, and it may also bring healing energies to bear. Shadow work is not only an invitation to further integration of our split off components, but brings our greatest contribution to our families and our society.

Keith Parker - Ancient Appalachian Wisdom: Cherokee Myths

$14.00

parker.jpg

LECTURE: Cherokee mythology, though different from Western Mythology, tells many familiar stories. Its view of evil embodies both feminine and masculine forms: an Adam and Eve equivalent, showing paradise lost. The archetypal symbol of the sacrificial martyr is illustrated by Selu, the Corn Mother. Like many traditions from around the world, Cherokee pilgrimages were spiritual ones. The ancient Appalachian wisdom of the Cherokee is a rich source of myth and story that can still speak to us today. This presentation focuses on the Cherokee and their myths as described in Parker's recent book, Seven Cherokee Myths: Creation, Fire, the Primordial Parents, the Nature of Evil, the Family, Universal Suffering, and Communal Obligation. Some Jungian observations are made.

G. Keith Parker, PhD, is a Zurich trained Jungian analyst who works with clients in Brevard, NC. He received his PhD in Church History and the Psychology of Religion from the University of Louisville. Also trained as a Pastoral Counselor, he has practiced as a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst in both the U.S. and Europe.

Pamela Donleavy - Themis: The Feminine Archetype of Healing

$14.00

donleavy.jpg

LECTURE: Themis is a hidden goddess. She is not one of the twelve Olympians who sit on their golden thrones and carry the very image of the gods of the Greeks. But in a sense she is below and above them all. Born a Titan, of an older race than they, she was often hailed as the incarnation of eternal, inexhaustible Earth herself, and brought an ancient wisdom to the ordering of the world of gods and humans. Themis is still with us today as Our Lady Justice, the blindfolded woman draped in Greek robes who holds the scales of justice in her left hand and sword in her right. Somehow this goddess has continued to exist. In this lecture, she explores many of the lost aspects of this ancient goddess and illustrates how Themis' archetypal power is available as a source of healing in a Jungian analysis.

Pamela Donleavy, JD, is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Arlington, Massachusetts. She is the President of the New England Society of Jungian Analysts, is on the Board of Directors of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis, and is on the faculty of the C.G. Jung Institute-Boston. Pamela lectures widely, and is the author of several articles in Jungian journals. She and co-author Ann Shearer, are collaborating on a book about Themis.

Sharon Martin - Feminine Authority: Empowerment through Animus Development

$14.00

sharonmartin.jpg

LECTURE: Drawing on the work of Jung, von Franz, Carotenuto, Young-Eisendrath, Harding and life experience, Martin discusses the re-discovery of feminine authority via relationship with the animus as center of inner psychic equilibrium. She explores the negative masculine as the key to transformation as he makes himself known through dream images, neuroses and stories. Finally, she describes the emergence of the positive masculine as source of power and bridge to wholeness.

Sharon Martin was born and grew up in the Deep South, where she developed an acute interest and sensitivity to the relationship between culture and gender. She received both her bachelor's and master's degree at Emory University in the Psychosocial Nurse Practitioner program, obtaining advanced certification as Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist. She is a 2005 graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute Zurich.

Susan Olson - Animals, our Soulful Companions

$14.00

olson.jpg

LECTURE: Jungian psychology teaches us to take notice of the people, places, and things that delight and captivate us. Recently I have found myself fascinated by dolphins, whales, and (to my great surprise!) giant pandas. These animals are at home in the wild and will never be domesticated. And yet they form relationships with humans and seem to be as curious about us as we are about them. What does our interest in these appealing creatures have to tell us about our own wild and untamed nature? This lecture includes stories, images, and film clips of meetings with creatures living on the edge between nature and culture, wilderness and civilization.

Susan Olson, LCSW, earned her M.S.W. from the University of Georgia in Athens. She obtained her diploma from the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich before moving to Atlanta in 1992. In addition to her analytic practice, Susan is a Training Analyst in the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and is on the faculty of the Memphis Training Seminar. She lectures and leads workshops on topics related to Jungian psychology and is currently working on a book on grief and bereavement dreams.

David Miller - Hunters and Farmers Haunting the Self

$14.00

davidmiller.jpg

LECTURE: Goethe's Faust utters agonizing words that speak truth for many men and women today: "Two souls, alas, reside within my breast!" Jung confirmed the psychological reality of this saying by noting that the nature of the psyche is that of a complex of oppositions. Dr. Miller explores one such tension felt deeply in the soul: the opposition of the archetypal perspectives of ancient peoples who hunt over against those who plant for a living. We all have a mythic hunter and a mythic farmer deep within the psyche, and these two don't get along very well!

David L. Miller, PhD, is the Watson-Ledden Professor of Religion, Emeritus, at Syracuse University. He has been a Core Faculty Person at Pacifica Graduate Institute in California, has taught clinical programs at the Jung Institute in Switzerland, and has held seminars for trainees at Jung Institutes in Los Angeles, Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City. He has also served on the examining committee for the InterRegional Society of Jungian Analysts.

John Beebe - Trauma and Psychological Creativity: Lecture

$14.00

beebe.jpg

LECTURE: One of the most remarkable capacities of the psyche is its ability to manage traumatic life experiences. Using extreme, innovative works of art from the history of painting and film, Dr. Beebe illustrates the different creative strategies the psyche adopts when forced to manage its sense of violation and disillusionment. He presents solutions advanced by artists in times of cataclysmic social upheaval and compare these with the choices analytic patients sometimes make when faced with overwhelming life events.

John Beebe MD, a Jungian analyst and psychiatrist in practice in San Francisco, is a past President of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. An internationally recognized clinical teacher of Jungian psychology, he has lectured on topics related to analytical psychology throughout the world. Dr. Beebe is the author of Integrity in Depth, which is a study of the archetype of moral wholeness, and he has pioneered the use of Jung's typology to gain insight into our effects upon others, for good and ill. As a lover and recognized critic of film, John frequently draws upon movies to illustrate how various styles of consciousness interact to produce the stories of our lives that Jung called individuation.

John Beebe - Trauma and Psychological Creativity: Workshop

$24.00

beebe.jpg

WORKSHOP: This workshop begins with a special showing of Akira Kurosawa’s famous 1950 film "Rashomon," which describes the memories, fabrications, and reactions of a group of people in civil-war-torn 11th century Japan after a rape and murder that has left them all traumatized. Leading a discussion of the film, Dr. Beebe will help the participants develop a view of trauma as an archetypal situation evoking a creative response that may or may not advance the integrity of the traumatized individual.

Jerry Wright - Seeking A God Sufficient For The Soul's Passion

$14.00

JerryWright.jpg

LECTURE: What new God images are asking for our embrace? Can we allow "God" to grow up? Can we move from being "children of God" to "adults with God?" Can Christianity, Judaism, and Islam learn to bow to the same God, and to each other? Can Christianity survive the radical reformation of its myth and core images, including the deaths of supernatural theism, original sin, blood sacrifice atonement, exclusive Christological claims, and promises of heavenly rewards? What does depth psychology have to offer us in our individual and collective predicament? Are there God images which honor both mind and soul, images which can bridge the chasm between science and religion?

Jerry R. Wright is a Jungian Analyst in private practice, with offices in Decatur, Georgia and Flat Rock, NC. He serves on the teaching faculty for The Haden Institute for Spiritual Direction Training and Dream Leader Training. In addition, he gives lectures, workshops, and retreats on themes related to spirituality and Jungian Psychology and sponsors and leads pilgrimages to sacred sites, including those in Ireland and Iona, Scotland."
