Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
The Creative Self: Secrets, Dreams and Wishes
Speaker: Fanny Brewster, PhD.
To be that which you are is the bath of rebirth. In the depths, being is not an unconditional persistence but an endlessly slow growth. You think you are standing still like swamp water, but slowly you flow into the sea that covers the earth's greatest deeps, and is so vast that firm land seems only an island imbedded in the womb of the immeasurable sea.
When Jung first experiences his Anima, who declares that his fantasy/writing is Art, he denies this, insisting rather that it is nature, science. How often do we deny the ways in which we experience the "endlessly slow growth" of the Creative Self? How often do we say, I wish I were creative? How can we discover and recognize this deepest aspect of ourselves?
Let us explore how our secrets, dreams and wishes, when given over to the Creative Self, can free us to live more authentic, rich lives, expressing the endless possibilities of being and becoming more creative.
Fanny Brewster PhD, MFA, is a Jungian analyst and writer in private practice in New York City. She is a faculty member at the C.G. Jung Foundation and Pacifica Graduate Institute. She has received two Gradiva Award Nominations for Nonfiction Writing from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis and is currently teaching "Re-collecting ourselves through Memoir" at the C.G. Jung Foundation.
Living and Writing Toward Wholeness
Speaker: Susan Tiberghien.
The attainment of wholeness requires one to stake one's whole being. Nothing less will do.
I always knew that these experiences contained something precious and therefore I knew of nothing better than to write them down in a 'precious' book.
What is wholeness? How can we answer our longing for wholeness? Jung's own search for wholeness is embodied in the Red Book through his encounter with living images in his unconscious. What are our own living images that may reveal hidden parts of ourselves? How can we put the parts together and take a step toward wholeness?
Susan Tiberghien, an American-born writer living in Switzerland, has published three memoirs, Looking for Gold, Circling to the Center, and Footsteps, A European Album, and most recently One Year to A Writing Life, along with numerous narrative essays in journals and anthologies on both sides of the Atlantic. She teaches and lectures at graduate programs, C.G. Jung Centers, and at writers' conferences both in the United States and in Europe, where she directs the Geneva Writers' Group and Conferences. Her website is www.susantiberghien.com.
