"Love is a force of destiny whose power reaches from heaven to hell. We must, I think, understand love in this way if we are to do any sort of justice to the problems it involves. They are of immense scope and complexity, not confined to any particular province but covering every aspect of human life." C.G. Jung, CW 10, para. 198
When we truly love, we are exquisitely attuned to the individuality of those we care about. We are able to put the other person "in the center" without losing our own center. In this workshop, we will explore the nature of this deep form of love from Jung’s "archetypal" and "orientational" point of view. We will note some of the ways that love is characterized in other cultures.
Among the questions we will explore: What is the basic human need for love and how does it arise? Why and how is love redeeming? What does it mean to "receive" love as well as to give it? How do complexes limit the amount of love we experience? What role does love play in becoming who we were "meant" to be? What is the "divine" nature of love and how is "love as strong as death" (as the Song of Solomon puts it)?
David Rottman, MA, is President and Chairman of the Board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York, a member of the Foundation’s Continuing Education Faculty, and Senior Faculty Member of the Archetypal Pattern Analyst Training Program at the Assisi Institute.
