Continuing Education Courses — Spring 2018
The C.G. Jung Foundation Continuing Education courses are five-week courses designed to be informative and stimulating both to the general public and to professionals. Our program offers you the opportunity to study and explore analytical psychology, the works of C.G. Jung, and fields of related interest.
Spring I: Classes begin the week of February 26, 2018
5 consecutive Mondays, 6:00–7:40 pm
Instructor: Gary Brown, LCSW, LP
In this course with a seminar format, we will explore the essence of time, with the aim of discovering a deeper meaning to this seeming cliché. We all believe we know what time is, but as we try to describe it, we find our definition becomes increasingly vague once we get past the concept of clock time.
When we get to sidereal time (measured according to the positions of the stars in the sky) and other times, such as the ever-present origin of Jung's colleague Jean Gebser, or Ernst Hoffman's "eternity" or, more esoteric still, Dogen Zenshi's zen realization of UJI- being- time (and of course Albert Einstein's theory of the space-time continuum), we are usually even more lost! We will join Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz, who also sought essence in time, for guidance.
Lest these "times" look to be of little consequence in daily life, we will locate them in our therapy sessions and our trips to the supermarket! Join us as we "shop" the times and discover more of our essence!
5 consecutive Wednesdays, 6.30–8.10 pm
Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW
This workshop on "Painting the Psyche" will be an opportunity to experience and explore archetypal images that emerge from what Jung calls the creative imagination. We will delve into the depths of the psyche to render in paint a visual of the dream image and to amplify what the dream world so wondrously reflects to us. With watercolors as our medium and paintbrushes as our instruments, we will depict a dimension that is extraordinarily difficult to discern. We will rediscover the dream world and give form, in detail, to its expressions and engage in an in-depth elaboration of what it so profoundly implies and portends. Together as a group, we will share our felt experiences of the creative process. Watercolors, brushes, and paper will be provided.
Fee for materials: add additional $20 to tuition fee.
5 consecutive Thursdays, 7:00–8:40 pm
Instructor: Royce Froehlich, PhD, MDiv, LCSW
C.G. Jung's model of the psyche is based on a paradigm of intra-psychic development and self-knowledge, an "inner cosmology" by which to comprehend human behavior patterns. Jungian authors and Liber Novus (The Red Book) will provide a framework for exploring fundamental themes and clinical concepts in Jung's work. The classes will be augmented by multi-media presentations and relevant discussion.
Recommended reading: J. Jacobi, The Psychology of C.G. Jung; supplementary reading: The Handbook of Jungian Psychology, Papadopolous, Ed.
Spring II: Classes begin the week of April 9, 2018.
5 consecutive Mondays, 7:00–8:40 pm
Instructor: David Rottman, MA
How do we choose the right person to love? What enables love to come into our lives? How do we keep love alive?
C.G. Jung had many unusual and deeply meaningful things to say about the role of love in our lives, including the crucial topics of removing obstacles to love, making a place within for receiving love, loving ourselves as much as others, and renewing love in relationships. In this course, we will read and discuss Jung's views on love, drawing on his collected works and seminars, and on the works of his pupil Marie-Louise von Franz.
5 consecutive Thursdays, 6:50–8:30 pm
Instructor: Royce Froehlich, PhD, MDiv, LCSW
C.G. Jung found universal patterns and themes related to the individuation motif and commonality among images regarding a divine principle (the God-image). His Commentary on a Taoist alchemical meditation guide, The Secret of the Golden Flower, offers clear clinical insights into the fundamentals for understanding human behavior through a Jungian lens.
Recommended reading: The Secret of the Golden Flower, Wilhelm translation, with Jung's Commentary; supplementary reading: The Handbook of Jungian Psychology, Papadopolous, Ed
