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 Kalsched - From Bewitchment to Enchantment: Transformational Process in the Psychoanalysis of Trauma

$24.00

blindprince.jpg

WORKSHOP: Patients who have suffered severe early trauma often find themselves bewitched by dark tyrannical voices assaulting them from within, leading to intense anxiety and depression. In dream work with such patients, the dark inner voices reveal themselves as both archaic and typical--hence archetypal--personifications whose inner purpose seems to be the defense of a vulnerable core of selfhood to make sure it is never violated again. However, in defending the true self against further trauma, the archetypal defenses also persecute and demoralize it, cutting off all hope for life-in-relationship to others. Under these conditions, the positive side of the Self cannot constellate and the individuation process cannot get started. In successful depth psychotherapy, these archetypal defenses slowly lose their power as their daimonic energy slowly becomes humanized in the transference and is transmuted into a mature capacity for love and creative living (enchantment).

Richard Tarnas - Synchronicity

$24.00

rick-tarnas-web.jpg

WORKSHOP: Jung’s concept of synchronicity represents one of the most strenuous efforts of the twentieth century to construct a bridge across the chasm between spirit and matter, self and world, psyche and cosmos. Synchronistic phenomena have had a unique impact in the intellectual world, having been cited by physicists as posing a major challenge to the philosophical foundations of modern science, as well as by religious scholars as holding deep implications for the contemporary psychology of religion. In this day-long seminar, Richard Tarnas summarizes the origin and history of the concept in Jung’s work, discuss the experiential dimension of synchronistic events, analyze the new understanding of causality these presuppose, and address their larger metaphysical and perhaps evolutionary implications.

Richard Tarnas is a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. He also lectures on archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, and is on the Board of Governors of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. He is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view widely used as a text in universities, and Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View.

Jean Shinoda Bolen - Path with Soul: One Step at a Time Individuation

$24.00

jean-bolen.jpg

WORKSHOP:This workshop will draw upon poetic metaphor and myth to illuminate the path we are traveling. Each of us is an unfinished work in process that is shaped by large and small choices we make with intended and unintended consequences. Major unexpected and difficult changes occur in relationships, finances, and health. Once we realize that dreams, physical symptoms, moods, addictions, joy, contentment, gratitude and creativity are all indications about how we are doing, we can check in with ourselves and get our bearings. The call to choose a path with soul is a heart choice, it may begin as an inner journey into the underworld or with an act of courage which may take us into uncertainty or be a call to adventure.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D, is a psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, past clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco, author and activist. She is an internationally known speaker who draws from spiritual, feminist, Jungian, medical and personal wellsprings of experience. Her books include Goddesses in Everywoman, Gods in Everyman, Close to the Bone, The Millionth Circle, Goddesses in Older Women, Crones Don't Whine, Urgent Message from Mother and Like a Tree

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.

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 - The Reality of the Soul

$14.00

LECTURE: People have had experiences of the soul's transcendence since time immemorial. Yet we continue to wonder...What do these experiences prove? Do they offer a genuine vision of reality, or are they only products of human imagination? Are they rooted in human desire, in the wish for immortality, in projection? There are certain special moments in life, call them "openings to transcendence," when we confront a symbol and see reality as the unconscious, according to Jung, regards it all the time. In this lecture, Murray Stein invites the audience to reflect on such experiences of transcendence. These experiences can open us to question some of our deepest assumptions about the boundaries of the soul.

Jean Shinoda Bolen - Transforming Ourselves and the World

$14.00

jeanbolen.jpg

LECTURE: The archetype of the sacred circle, feminism, Jungian psychology, and Rupert Sheldrake's Morphic Field Theory come together in Jean Shinoda Bolen's visionary and practical work on women's circles and their transformative potential. Drawing on the story of "The Hundredth Monkey," which inspired anti-nuclear activists, "the millionth circle" depends upon a simple hypothesis: when a critical number of people change how they think and behave, the culture will also, and a post-patriarchal era will begin. In this talk, she describes the Grail Legend as a planetary story and discusses the parallels between the analytical container and the qualities that make the circle a growth medium for its members.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. is a Jungain Analyst, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco, and the author of The Tao of Psychology, Goddesses in Everywoman, Gods in Everyman, Crossing to Avalon, Ring of Power, Close to the Bone, The Millionth Circle, and Goddesses in Older Women. She is a former member of the Ms. Foundation for Women and the International Transpersonal Association.

Jean Shinoda Bolen - We Are Spiritual Beings On a Human Path

$24.00

jeanbolen.jpg

WORKSHOP: Myths of descent into the underworld illuminate the nature of the spiritual journey. The disasters and unexpected epiphanies of everyday life can bring us to what we know at a soul level, or yearning to be authentic. Jung's emphasis on individuation and Joseph Campbell's challenge to us to find our personal myth depend on making choices that ring deeply true for us. In her perennial classics Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman and now in Goddesses in Older Women (about archetypes in women over fifty), Jean Shinoda Bolen brings our archetypes to life and enables us to recognize them in ourselves. In this workshop, you will hear myths of descent and return that can take you into the symbolic realm of the pysche—where the soul dwells. By listening to Jean tell stories, you may realize the significant themes in your own life. In a guided meditation, you may find personal symbols and sources of wisdom. This is an opportunity that may activate or recharge your inner life.

Ann Ulanov - Aliveness/Deadness

$14.00

annulanov2.jpg

LECTURE: In the opening years of our new century and under the shadow of terrorist attacks on American soil, these following questions have become urgent: What makes for our sense of aliveness and feeling real? What puts us in touch with our own voice? What confers a sense of finding and creating a path that is true for us? What kills it, making us feel deadness? The focus of this lecture will examine the space of aliveness, which is created between persons, between analysand and analyst, between ego and animus/a, in worship between ritual and repetition compulsion, and in imagination between the factual and the symbolic.

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.

Jeffrey Kiehl, Ph.D., M.A., LPC is a Diplomate Jungian Analyst with a private practice in Boulder, Colorado. He is a member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and the International Association for Analytical Psychology.

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.

John Beebe, M.D. , is a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst in San Francisco, where, in addition to editing and writing articles and books in the field of analytical psychology, he practices and teaches analytical psychotherapy.
