Pete Williams - The Power of the Persona: Friend or Foe?

$14.00

williams.jpg

LECTURE: In 1916, Carl Jung delivered a lecture to the Zurich Association for Analytical Psychology in which he introduced for the first time the notion of the persona and how it functions as "a compromise" between the collective and the individual. During the period in the individual's development that Jung refers to as "the first half of life," the persona serves a critical and essential role in mediating and facilitating adaptation to the social, external world. In the second half of life, however, the persona's allegiance to a collective consciousness often comes into conflict with the pull of the psyche's natural impulse toward individuation—a pull away from the collective, and a movement toward true individuality. Therefore, when not made fully conscious, the persona can become the subtle yet effective enemy of the individuation process.

Pete Williams is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Atlanta. He obtained his PhD in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2003. He is a member of The Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts where he did his analytic training and he is also a member of the Georgia Association of Jungian Analysts.

Vicente de Moura - The Visions of Christiana Morgan

$14.00

vicente.jpg

LECTURE: "I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully and as carefully as you can—in some beautifully bound book." This piece of advice Jung gave to his patient Christiana Morgan during her analyses in 1926. Jung saw in the psychic development of Mrs. Morgan parallels to his own confrontation with the Unconscious, Jung's self-experimentation between 1913 and 1916. Mrs. Morgan's analyses led her to a process of initiation into the psychic underworld. The presentation gives us an overview of her journey, what may be called a female version of the Jung's Red Book.

Vicente de Moura - Individuation: The Case of Mrs. X

$14.00

vicente.jpg

LECTURE: Jung's concept of individuation is central in his psychology. Psyche has a goal in its development, and this process follows the way of nature. The questions that is put to us is: Will we listen to what psyche whisper to us? Jung saw in the work of the ancient Alchemists symbolic equivalents to this process, and he described the parallels between modern psyche and ancient alchemy in the pictures of Mrs. X. This presentation follows Mrs. X's journey and shows Jung's understanding of the way of nature.

Jeffrey Kiehl - Sustaining Earth, Sustaining Soul

$14.00

jeffrey-kiehl.jpg

LECTURE: The world around us is changing and much of this change is due to human activity. Over time we have grown apart from Earth. We look upon our world as remote and inanimate, a material resource existing solely to support our needs. Carl Jung recognized the perils of living a one-sided life separate from the world. Ultimately, living this way leads to unconscious forces that are very destructive. Thus, in his later years, Jung spoke of healing our split with the natural world. In this presentation I will explore the psychological processes that have led to our split from the world and the current global environmental consequences of this split. I will then explore how Jungian psychology can lead us back to reconnecting with the world. In particular, I will describe how the archetype of opposites plays a central role in the process of healing our split with the world.

Jerry Ruhl - The Pursuit of Happiness

$14.00

jerry-ruhl.jpg

LECTURE: What makes us happy? For the ancient Greeks, happiness was a gift of the gods. With the coming of Christianity it became a promise of the world to come. Today, we often think of happiness as a natural right, even an entitlement. We tend to look for something or someone on the outside to make us happy. This program will examine happiness from the perspectives of depth psychology, Buddhism, positive psychology, and recent neuro-affective research. Dr. Ruhl will suggest that unhappiness is rooted in anxiety which accompanies the sense of being an isolated ego (separate from others and nature as a whole). A sense of harmony, completion, and wholeness come with the realization that this feeling of isolation is an illusion.

Jerry M. Ruhl, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist living in Houston, Texas. Dr. Ruhl is executive director of The Jung Center of Houston and a faculty member of the Saybrook University Graduate Studies Program in Jungian Studies. He is the co-author of three books with Robert A. Johnson, including Contentment: A Way to True Happiness, published by HarperCollins. Dr. Ruhl sees patients in private practice, facilitates dream groups, and presents seminars around the nation.

Jerry Ruhl - Achieving True Contentment

$24.00

jerry-ruhl.jpg

WORKSHOP: Most of us believe that we’ll somehow achieve contentment just as soon as we get a better job, find a more satisfying relationship, buy a bigger house, retire, or attain some other outer goal. Our society conditions us to think this way. With this approach to life, contentment forever eludes us. We continually banish our contentment to another time, a different place, a better circumstance. Through myths, stories, and practical exercises, this workshop will show you how to move beyond the inevitable frustrations of the ego-centered approach to life and open to a deeper, richer layer of experience. We will explore the psychological experiences of projection, inflation, and deflation, and unexpected vehicles of contentment, including the "gifts" of: confusion, paradox, stopping, silence, yearning, and ordinariness.

Sharon Martin - The Feminine and Fundamentalism

$14.00

sharonmartin.jpg

LECTURE: Like it or not, there is a fundamentalist in each of us. It is a defense system born of fear, and all of us experience it in one way or another. In this lecture/discussion, we will explore the various ways fundamentalism manifests in our inner and outer worlds. In particular we will look at how it shapes our own Southern culture. We will discuss some of the psychological roots of its power, the most primary being Shadow projection, the very thing that leads us to wage war. How can we resolve this moral failure? Can we make a difference in the world? Is it possible to open more fully to our feminine reality to help resolve these difficult issues? These are the questions we will attempt to live as we explore the dark territory of Fundamentalism and the Feminine.

Sharon Martin was born and grew up in the Deep South. 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. This program introduced her to the exciting work of C. G. Jung. Her fascination with his deeply spiritual and scientific approach lead to her enrollment as a training candidate at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, where she received her diploma in Analytical Psychology in 2005. She began her private practice in Atlanta in 1999 and has recently relocated to the lowcountry of Charleston, South Carolina. In addition to her analytic practice, Sharon lectures and gives workshops on Jungian theory.

Michael Conforti - The Spiritual Mandates of an Inspired Life

$14.00

conforti-store.jpg

LECTURE:Why is it that despite the fact that the Self presents us with a gift and a destiny, of a potential waiting to be expressed, that we often neglect to attend to all that is needed to bring this aspect of the Transcendent to fruition? To turn away from a life proffered by the Psyche, is to turn away from Self and soul. As there are profound psychological, spiritual and physical consequences for such an unlived life, we need a richer understanding of humanities experiences of confronting and running away from what Self asks of us, and how we have responded to this greater calling.In this lecture, he discusses ancient and modern wisdom stories, and examples from clinical practice to help us understand the unconscious and archetypal reasons for our inability to understand or accept the deeper meaning of sacrifice. We discuss ways to accept the personal and archetypal mandates that come with the calling each and every one of us brings into the world, and allows for a meaningful and spiritual approach to life.

Michael Conforti, Ph.D. is a Jungian Psychoanalyst and founder and director of the Assisi Institute in Italy and Vermont.

Michael Conforti - Forgiveness and Redemption: An Archetypal Perspective on Healing

$24.00

conforti-store.jpg

WORKSHOP:Susceptibility to emotional states and archetypal possessions is an all too human experience. From the individual and personal to the collective and global, we find ourselves swimming in a sea of archetypal influences; many of which we remain unaware of throughout our life. He discusses those experiences, states, and fields from which we need and seek redemption. Virtually everyone has either committed or been the recipient of some form of moral transgressions of innate moral codes, and each in their own way shackles and yokes the individual to the wheel of seemingly endless repetitions. From the lives of trauma victims, to the survivors of the Holocaust, we find that these individuals have entered a field which keeps them held within the confines of the archetypal experience of their terrors. It is from these autonomous fields, that one seeks liberation-hungering for redemption. He discusses those states which create the need for forgiveness, and an archetypal approach for redemption from these fields which hold us captive.

Ann Ulanov - The Red Book and our Unlived Life - Lecture

$14.00

ann-ulanov-store.jpg

LECTURE: Early in The Red Book Jung says, “You live your life fully if you also live what you have not yet lived. This is knowledge of the heart” you can attain...only by living your life to the full.” This means facing the dead. The dead are what we should have lived and have not, and irreparable losses we have suffered. To live these, because “my life wants itself whole,” also means to approach the border between personal and impersonal psyche, to create personal meaning in the impersonal events that happen to us,and to yield personal strivings to the “Well-Being between us and others in society” madness and creativity mingle.
