Jerry Ruhl - Balancing Heaven & Earth

$14.00

jerry-ruhl.jpg

LECTURE: How should we balance the inner and the outer, the masculine and the feminine, the eternal and the every day? In struggling with goals and duties, how do we also attend to the workings of destiny and the cosmos? Utilizing a mythic story from India, The Ramayana, as guide, this talk explores the Eastern genius for the development of consciousness. Each of the characters in this individuation tale represents a part of the human psyche—all of which must be dealt with during the journey of life.

He earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, where he developed a new holistic model for coping with life changing accidents and illness.

Jerry Ruhl - The Power of Active Imagination

$24.00

jerry-ruhl.jpg

WORKSHOP: Active imagination is a dialogue that you enter into with different aspects of yourself that are generally unconscious. Conscious participation transforms it from passive fantasy to active imagination. It is a dialogue, not a monologue, with energy systems that frequently show up in dreams, moods, symptoms, neurotic habits, and even illness. Example: I awake with a mood. Instead of letting it ruin my day, I can sit down and ask: What or who inside me is angry? Where in my body can I feel this, and what is it like? What is its image? By working actively with these powerful patterns of awareness, we can change dysfunctional habits of mind, reduce inner conflicts, and draw upon deep wisdom. In this workshop we utilize dialogues from literature, case studies, and examples from C.G. Jung's own active imagination practice as recorded in The Red Book.

John Gentile - The Salmon of Knowledge: Storytelling and Irish Myth

$14.00

gentile.jpg

LECTURE: Humanity may be considered homo narrans, the storytelling animal. This lecture has a dual focus; one aspect focuses on the nature of oral storytelling, the other on the mythology of Ireland. What is meant by the oral tradition? How did orality and literacy interface in the development of the Irish mythology? How do these Irish stories reflect a syncretism of Paganism and early Christianity?

John S. Gentile is Professor and Chair of the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at Kennesaw State University. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University and his M.A. in Mythological Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. His adaptation of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick received the award for Best Performance at the Casablanca Theatre Festival in Morocco in July 2009. He has traveled extensively in Ireland, where he has led study/tours in Irish mythology and coordinates a study abroad program in partnership with the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin.

William Willeford - The Red Book in Context

$14.00

willeford.jpg

LECTURE: Jung created his Red Book in a cultural and historical context. Much is gained by having this in mind while studying the work as a thing apart. This is a useful perspective in which to make out in the plainest terms what it is trying to say. He sought to transcend or in some other way deal with contradictions but could do so only while also embodying them. In this private work are many signs of give and take between the authorial self and others. One of Jung's guiding principles as a psychologist is that we must engage our inferiorities. They then often turn out to contain seeds of valuable further development. Interacting with them may be painful, but the larger process thus served has its own often dazzling beauty. The Red Book is a testament to this.

William Willeford, Ph.D. is a Jungian Analyst practicing in Atlanta. He has been a Guggenheim Fellow and the recipient of other awards. And his published works include the books The Fool and his Scepter and Feeling, Imagination, and the Self: Transformations of the Mother-Infant Relationship and numerous articles, most in tae Journal of Analytical Psychology. He is currently a Visiting Scholar at the Vico Institute of the Department of Philosophy of Emory University.

Benig Mauger - Towards the Inner Marriage

$14.00

mauger.jpg

LECTURE: In an increasingly fragmented world, we seek inner wholeness, spiritual purpose--and love. While wanting to progress on our spiritual path, however, we are often held back by our sense of wounding. To be truly capable of giving and receiving love, we have to embrace our essential natures and heal our emotional wounds while practicing acceptance and forgiveness. How do we do this? Healing comes from within, and accepting our wounds as gifts and our early life experiences as spiritual tasks of empowerment both heals and frees us.

Benig Mauger, Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist, was educated in Ireland and studied psychology and psychotherapy in Dublin, London and Zurich. In 1992, she gradated from Training in Analytical Psychotherapy with the Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy, London, England. "Healing From Within" is a method of healing she developed in her latest book Love in a Time of Broken Heart. Her other books include, Reclaiming the Spirituality of Birth; and Reclaiming Father: The Search for Wholeness in Men, Women and Children; and a pamphlet of poems, The Wise Woman and the Little Girl.

Virginia Apperson - A Choir of Orphans

$14.00

virginia-side.jpg

LECTURE: Both literally and archetypally, the thought of an orphan stirs pain and pity on a cellular level. Poor, forsaken child, we project. Yet when we pause for a minute, don’t we each have to admit that there are colonies of abandoned places—yes, orphaned parts of ourselves—toe-tapping for our attention. Jungian endeavors are state of the art means to crack through such ignorance and neglect: 1) Dreams are pretty much an orphan’s custom-made means of communication beckoning us from the deep. 2) Neuroses, depression and anxiety: ramshackle vehicles upon which the orphan rides into our psyches. 3) Fairy tales, myth, literature and film: reminders that abandonment of our most precious gifts and talents is as old as time.

Virginia Apperson’s belief in the creative potential within each one of us led to her training at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich. In addition to offering individual analysis, she works with couples, leads dream groups, and lectures on Jungian topics. She is a member of the Georgia Association of Jungian Analysts. With John Beebe, she co-authored the book, The Presence of the Feminine in Film. She is constantly in awe of the psyche’s ingenuity.

Jerome Bernstein - Healing the Split between Psyche and Nature

$14.00

jerome_bernstein.jpg

LECTURE: Jerome Bernstein discusses his theory that the Western psyche’s immediate communication with nature is not "gone for ever," as Jung asserted, but is being reconnected to nature as an evolutionary compensation in the name of protection from species suicide. One by-product of this evolutionary process is what he calls Borderland consciousness. There are many people whose experience of reality is outside the mainstream of Western culture. Often they see themselves as abnormal because they have no articulated frame of reference for their experience. The concept of the Borderland personality explains much of their reality.

Jerome Bernstein: In 1971, he, along with a business partner, founded a new social science consulting firm, RJ Associates, through which he contracted with the Navajo nation. Since then, he has maintained a thirty-five year relationship with friends and professionals and has been working to bring the wisdom of Navajo and Western healing together in a collaborative clinical model. In 1980, he graduated from the C. G. Jung Institute in New York, becoming a Jungian analyst. He is currently on the teaching faculty of the C. G. Jung Institute of Santa Fe.

$24.00

jerome_bernstein.jpg

WORKSHOP: This workshop will explore Navajo approaches to healing, the conceptual and psychological implications for western healing and how the wisdom of Navajo medicine can be integrated into Jungian and non-Jungian clinical work. The workshop will also explore the archetypal dynamics of trauma and how it endeavors to initiate the individual into a dimension of the sacred which aims at redeeming the individual’s wounded soul. Environmental Illness as an archetypal wound to or from nature and a Navajo-oriented healing approach also will be explored.
