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 E. Kalsched, Ph.D . is a clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst with a private practice in Katonah, N.Y. He is a faculty member and supervisor at the C.G. Jung Institute in New York City and with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.

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.

Jeremy Taylor - Living Labyrinth: Themes in Myths and Dreams

$14.00

LECTURE: We live in a world of symbols - symbols that spring spontaneously from within our own psyches and simultaneously surround and support us. Carl Jung called these symbols archetypes; Ralph Waldo Emerson called these patterns of perception "Intimations of the world soul." Jeremy Taylor, who has worked with dreams, sacred narratives and folk stories from around the world for over twenty-five years, will discuss these cultural patterns as they appear in our lives today.

Jeremy Taylor, D.Min. , STD (Hon.) is an internationally renowned innovator of group process in dream work who blends the values of spirituality with an active social conscience and a Jungian perspective. He is the author of: The Living Labyrinth: Universal Themes in Myths, Dreams and the Symbolism of Waking Life, Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill, and Dream Work.

John Beebe - The Self in Dreams

$24.00

beebe.jpg

WORKSHOP: Everyone has an ego that wishes, and wills, and fears. But Jung tells us that we also have a Self that has the ability to cancel our wishes, frustrate our wills, and intensify our fears, all in the service of a mysterious project: individuation. How do we recognize the Self? Jung found evidence of the Self in dreams. But how does the Self speak to us in dreams? Using examples from a variety of sources, Dr. Beebe will demonstrate how we can identify the Self and how the Self emerges in dreams as a dynamic presence, organizing a new psychological standpoint.

Murray Stein - Four Pillars of a Jungian Approach to Psychotherapy

$24.00

WORKSHOP: Murray Stein presents in this seminar the bare bones of the Jungian approach to psychotherapy. The four pillars, to be described and elucidated in the seminar, are: 1. Assessment and evaluation of the state of the psyche in the individuation process; 2. Understanding and using transference and countertransference dynamics in psychotherapy; 3. Interpreting dreams in psychotherapy; 4. Transforming psychic structure through active imagination. Each of these key elements will be described theoretically and illustrated using clinical case material and examples from practice.

Murray Stein, Ph.D. , is a Jungian analyst in practice in the Chicago area. He is a training analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago and the author of many articles and books, among them Transformation-Emergence of the Self, In Midlife, Jung’s Map of the Soul, and Practicing Wholeness.

Paula Reeves - Dreams and Symptoms: Soul's Elegant Repair Kit

$14.00

LECTURE: Rumi writes: We may worry about death, but what hurts the Soul the most is never to have tasted the waters of it's own essence. For it is at our very essence that the roots of our unlived life lies. Untended, never brought to consciousness, these roots fail to set forth branches, to flower and offer the harvest of an authentic life--the life intended at our conception. In this talk, Paula will lead us back to our own roots in utero and offer us an opportunity to inquire into the unlived life waiting to be uncovered.

Paula Reeves is a psychotherapist, living in Stone Mountain and practicing in Atlanta. She has a committed interest to the relationship between spirit and matter, which has led her work with symptoms as metaphor for the unlived life. Paula lectures worldwide for many professional groups, both psychological and medical. Her interest and experience in working with metaphors of psyche and matter have led to the publication of her book, Women's Intuition: Unlocking the Wisdom of the Body.

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.

Robert Bosnak - Embodied Dream Imagery in Therapy, Medicine, and the Creative Process

$24.00

bosnak.jpg

LECTURE & GUIDED EXERCISE: Embodied dream imagery uses techniques based on the ubiquitous spontaneous ability of memory to flashback into previous events. During a flashback, the experienced environment is viscerally and tangibly present. Such events occur naturally post trauma, and can be artificially engendered by way of a methodology which will be demonstrated in part during the lecture and more fully in the workshop. Once a dreamer has flashed back into the dreaming environment, the experienced events can be slowed down dramatically. This forces the dream states into the body, where they manifest as embodied states. Using sense memory techniques gleaned from acting, it becomes possible to experience a variety of embodied states simultaneously. This creates a network. These networked embodied states lead to moments of heightened creativity, while at the same time giving the opportunity for emotional and physical healing.

Robert Bosnak, a Dutch, Zurich trained Jungian analyst, is especially interested in the classical relationship between dreaming, incubation and physical health, and is involved in several research programs into dreaming and medicine. Author of several books including: A Little Course in Dreams; Christopher’s Dreams; Tracks in the Wilderness of Dreaming, and the forthcoming Embodied Imagination; in Medicine, Art and Travel, he is past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and co-founder of www.cyberdreamwork.com.

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.
