C.G. Jung and the Meaning of Life


Saturday, April 9, 2022

10:00am–3:00pm Eastern Time, USA
A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Sanford L. Drob, PhD

Contact Hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Jung held that psychotherapy involves more than just the relief of symptoms and can assist individuals in achieving individuation and making a deeper connection with life-meaning. His reflections on life-meaning were quite varied, and traversed existential, archetypal, and transcendental themes—themes which reflect the range of concerns which informed his psychology throughout his career.

In this seminar we will begin by exploring the existential themes which Jung linked to life-meaning: individuation and the realization of the self, a focus on life in this world, a personal confrontation with death, and an embrace of absurdity, paradox and the shadow elements of the personality. We will then discuss archetypal themes, including Jung’s emphasis on the significance and power of myth, symbols, and religion, and explore transcendental themes, which grew out of Jung’s experiences which led him to speculate that our world is only a small part of a greater, and presumably more meaningful, reality.

Finally, we will contextualize Jung’s thinking within the philosophical and psychological conceptions of “the meaning of life” from the Bible and ancient Greece to the present day and explore the relationship between psyche, values and life-meaning. In sum, this seminar will aim to enhance appreciation of life-meaning, consider the questions of objective and “cosmic” meaning, and advance an understanding of life-meaning’s clinical relevance and its place in our own lives.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Learning Objectives: TBA

  1. Discuss three ways in which Jung spoke about individuation.
  2. Identify three reasons why parenthood can be an opportunity for self-growth.
  3. Explain why a loss of control can be a prelude to deeper self-understanding.
  4. Name several benefits of anger.
  5. Discuss how life challenges can lead to a greater sense of psychological integration.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 

  1. Describe how the process of psychotherapy can go beyond symptom relief to work on issues related to individuation and life meaning.
  2. Articulate the classical responses to the question of life’s meaning and relate these to the phenomenology of the human mind and the archetypes of the collective unconscious as they are understood in Jungian psychology.
  3. Describe and critique the distinction between “personal” and “cosmic” meaning and its relevance to the ethics of psychology and psychotherapy.
  4. Articulate how a metaphorical understanding of such age-old disciplines as Kabbalah and alchemy provide a guide to our understanding of the meaning of life and the process of individuation/self-actualization.
  5. Assess the significance of the archetype of “the Shadow” for life-meaning.

The Collective Unconscious in the Age of Neuroscience:
Severe Mental Illness and Jung in the 21st Century


Saturday, March 26, 2022

10:00am– 3:00pm Eastern Time, USA
A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Hallie B. Durchslag, PhD, LISW-S

Contact Hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Is all psychosis the same? Depth psychology treats it as such, yet medical models of severe mental illness say different. While medication may be frowned upon in some Jungian circles, some disorders cannot be treated without it. Is there common ground? Can Jung’s bedrock notion of a collective unconscious coexist within scientific advances that have occurred since his death? The answer is a resounding yes. This workshop will explore the remarkable prescience of Jung’s work, how medical models actually advance his theory, and the challenges and opportunities for analytical psychology moving forward.

Included in our program will be a personal journey of enchantment, then disillusionment, with Jungian practice through the presenter’s own struggle with bipolar I disorder and psychosis. The research Dr. Durchslag will share was born out of the lived conundrum of reconciling medical and depth psychological models of treatment. In the end, her journey led to a renewed and deeper connection to Carl Jung’s body of work.

This workshop will allow participants to view these questions through an analysis of four autobiographical narratives, including the presenter’s, which highlight the consistency of connection to numinous and transpersonal collective material. A brief overview of medications used in the treatment of severe mental illness will offer a vision of how this transcendent material appears to manifest at a physiological level, and shed light on Jung’s later exploration of synchronicity and the ultimate unity between psyche and matter.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Participants will be able to:

    1. Define severe mental illness from perspective of both medical and depth psychological models.
    2. Use case material to highlight challenges for depth psychology in regard to bipolar I disorder and schizophrenia.
    3. Build familiarity with the divergent paths of classical and developmental post-Jungian theory and practice.
    4. Build global understanding of current medications for treatment of severe mental illness.
    5. Utilize case material to highlight how severe mental illness aligns with basic tenets of analytical psychology.
    6. Identify and explore how individuation and notions of Self coincide/diverge in psychotic disorders.
    7. Build dialogue related to human physiology and a collective psyche.

Hallie B. Durchslag, PhD, LISW-S, lives in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, where she teaches, writes, and maintains a private practice as a Jungian-based, psychodynamic psychotherapist. She began her career as a social worker in the arena of Community Development after earning a Master of Science in Social Administration (M.S.S.A) at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. Shifting toward a clinical practice in 2009, she earned her doctorate (PhD) in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Dr. Durchslag has an abiding interest in the complexity of what makes us both human and transcendent beings. Her research over the past 10 years has looked at this subject through the lens of severe mental illnesses and their physiological connection to Jungian theory. Her book, The Collective Unconscious in the Age of Neuroscience: Severe Mental Illness and Jung in the 21st Century (Routledge) was released in July 2020. She maintains her commitment to the macro side of social work as the curator of The Anima Mundi Project, which looks at soul-based approaches to holistic personal development and community-building. She is a Past-President and current Honorary Board member of the Jung Educational Center of Cleveland.

Cinema through a Jungian Theoretical Lens

Seminar 2: Spring 2022
12 Tuesdays: 6:00 – 7:30pm ET
January 25 – April 12, 2022

Instructor: Jane Selinske, EdD, LCSW, LP, NCPsyA

“Imagination reveals to us, in the form of a more or less
Striking analogy, what is the process of becoming.”
—C.G. Jung, CW 7

C.G. Jung appreciated what films were able to present to the viewer, particularly in the conjunction between imagery and dialogue.  It was apparent to him that cinema could provide a “Temenos,” or womb-like container, in a dark space where the unconscious could be aroused and the psyche could potentially be projected into consciousness.  Like Jungian analysis, films provide a space where psyche can be seen, experienced, and also listened to by the individual or another.

According to John Beebe, “cinema is a medium not of actors but of images” and for Jung, symbolic images provide the best intuitive idea that cannot be formulated in any better way which provides potential meaning.  Jung’s symbolic way helps individuals watch and reflect on the images and meanings that have been stimulated and projected into consciousness. Like the creative art therapeutics of music, dance and art, Cinema is also a psychological art.  Cinema allows us the “Temenos” to engage our feelings and release our associative fantasies. By watching a film, our unconscious projections have the potential to be seen and integrated into consciousness.

This seminar will involve watching current and historical popular films before each class session.  The films will be discussed from a Jungian Theoretical Lens and some film titles will be elicited from the group.  Discussions, application of Jungian theory and creative process will provide an opportunity for participants to intellectually apply Jungian theory to the film and personally identify the personal projections and ego awareness from each viewing. We will also discuss how to use the potential in a film for working with clients. Participants will be responsible for finding the films and independently watching the film each week in advance of the class session. The first two films to be viewed and discussed will be the original and new versions of West Side Story.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
The course is designed so that participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the role of cinema in the development of the Ego/Self Axis.
  2. Describe the role of Active Imagination in Psychic Development.
  3. Identify Jung’s Map of the Psyche in relation to films.
  4. Identify symbols in films through music, photography and art.
  5. Discuss how to use the potential in a film for working with clients.
  6. Identify and discuss the appearance of films within dreams.
  7. Provide students with a bibliography on Jungian Theory and Cinema.

Motherhood: Facing and Finding Yourself


Saturday, February 26, 2022

10:00am– 3:00pm Eastern Time, USA
A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Lisa Marchiano, LCSW, NCPsyA

Contact Hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

According to Jung, individuation is the goal of psychological development. In this workshop, we will take a look at how motherhood can be an individuation opportunity. We will explore how Jung defined individuation and consider why parenthood so readily challenges us to deepen into ourselves. We will consider fairy tales that relate to the experience of motherhood and illustrate different aspects of individuation – the experience of descent and loss; the confrontation with shadow; and the integration of formerly split off aspects of ourselves. Participants will have the opportunity to engage the ideas presented in this workshop through brief journaling prompts and small and large group discussions.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss three ways in which Jung spoke about individuation.
  2. Identify three reasons why parenthood can be an opportunity for self-growth.
  3. Explain why a loss of control can be a prelude to deeper self-understanding.
  4. Name several benefits of anger.
  5. Discuss how life challenges can lead to a greater sense of psychological integration.

Visiting the Land of Oz: A Study of the Archetypes of an American Myth

 CLOSED
Saturday, December 4, 2021
10:00am– 3:00pm Eastern Time, USA

A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Jeanne Creekmore, PhD, ATR-BC

Contact hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

When the movie The Wizard of Oz was released in 1939, it was already well known to four generations of children who had read the original series of books by Frank L. Baum. The iconic songs and imagery of this MGM classic have inspired subsequent adaptations in books, plays, and movies, suggesting that this story still contains relevant issues for our time. 

Since Dorothy’s experience in Oz resembles a dream, we will use Jung’s method of dream analysis to understand the meanings of this myth. We will identify the archetypal motifs embodied in the characters of this story as they set out on their journey to Oz with particular attention paid to the orphan archetype and positive and negative aspects of the mother archetype. Seminar participants will be asked to share dreams, active imaginations, or creative work that relates to an image or character in this story in order to deepen our understanding of these archetypes (see assignment below).

Assignment:  Identify a character or symbol in the movie that resonates with you. Then engage this character (or object) by doing an active imagination or some kind of creative work: write a poem about it, create a dance or a piece of art based on this character. Please email a photo of your work to drjcreekmore@comcast.net one week before we meet.

The Red Book Paintings: Jung’s Confrontation with the Spiritual Unconscious

CLOSED
Saturday, November 20, 2021
10:00 am– 3:00 pm Eastern Time, USA

A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Sanford L. Drob, PhD

Please note that there are no CE contact hours offered for this program.

Jung’s Red Book, a magnificent illuminated manuscript, written and painted a century ago but first published in 2009, has revolutionized our understanding of Jung and his work and challenged our conception of the boundaries of psychology.  This full day seminar will focus on Jung’s paintings and examine the aesthetics, meanings, and psychological factors that inform them.  Participants will have an opportunity exchange thoughts and reactions to Jung’s paintings as well as to several of the paintings of Jung’s patient Christiana Morgan, the subject of his 1930-34 Visions Seminar. Sanford Drob will also share some of his own archetypal paintings and in the process discuss the ways in which art can involve active imagination and the unveiling of the personal and collective unconscious. The seminar is appropriate both for those who wish to enter the world of The Red Book through Jung’s paintings and those who are familiar with Jung’s text and wish to now engage with his art.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  1. To explain the grand patterns of human evolution that has been seen in the large collective cycle.
  2. To discuss the archetypal themes embedded in the COVID-19 pandemic both in the imagery and in the astrology of its spread.
  3. To explore what might lie ahead in terms of the evolution of human consciousness that speaks to the age of Aquarius.
  4. Apply the concepts presented to explore personal shifts in thinking and values as a result of the pandemic.

The Astrology of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Age of Aquarius, and the Evolution of Human Consciousness

Saturday, October 30, 2021
10:00am– 3:00pm Eastern Time, USA
CLOSED

A Daylong Zoom Seminar Led by: Christina Becker, MBA, RP

CONTACT HOURS: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Astrologically, the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic has been correlated with the 22-year cycle of Saturn/Pluto. This cycle brings with it forced collective transformation and significant change.  The chaos we are experiencing in the world - climate change increased natural disasters, and the pandemic  - suggests that our world may be in a much larger process of transformation, activating the archetype of death and rebirth that is encoded in the collective unconscious.  What is this transformation about?

In this workshop we will explore the self-imposed isolation and lock-down that has been necessary for a collective psychological reset.  We will also explore the images associated with this and the personal experiences that have arisen.  Stepping back, we might look to a larger perspective that lies in the astrological precision of the equinoxes.  We are at the end of the Age of Pisces and moving into the Age of Aquarius.  An exploration of the Age of Aquarius might offer a glimpse of what is to come and how we might activate this transformation in our own lives.  No astrological knowledge is necessary. 

Our main focus will be to look at the archetypal energies associated with the outer astrological planets and show how the correlation of these cycles to significant shifts in the collective consciousness. The emphasis of the workshop will also be on grounding these ideas in the lived experience of workshop participants with the aim of finding our individual role in the collective movement and finding meaning in our own lives.

Christian Mysticism and the Secret of Knowing God

CLOSED
5 Wednesdays
6:00 – 7:30 pm, Eastern Time, USA
Beginning November 10, 2021 (excluding November 24)

Instructor: Brother Damien Joseph, SSF

There are no CE’s offered for this course


Recent years have seen a renewal of interest in mysticism of various kinds, including the mystical tradition within Christianity.

It’s easy to think of Christianity as a set of doctrines and beliefs, as a systematic theology of right and wrong ideas, and as a way of knowing about God. But throughout the church’s history, another way has always persisted —sometimes dominant, sometimes neglected or mistrusted, or even actively suppressed. This is the tradition of the mystics, whose pursuit is not solely or primarily to know about God, but rather to know God, in a personal and experiential way. 

Our goal will be to become familiar with some of the basic concepts and imagery of mysticism, and to encounter a few examples of mystical writing in hopes of enriching our own spiritual lives and practice, and as a challenge to approach God not merely through knowledge but also through experience. While the course content focuses on mystical theology itself, opportunity will be provided to discuss intersections and applications to Jungian thought. 

We will approach this goal with a broad introductory session followed by four sessions looking at examples from individual mystical writers, in this case, all from the Franciscan tradition: Clare of Assisi, Ramon Llull, Bonaventure, and Angela of Foligno.


Session 1: Ascensio - the soul’s ascent into God
What is mysticism?  In this introduction to mystical thought, we’ll take a brief look at the definitions, history, and major themes of mysticism as a movement in Western Christianity. We’ll also identify examples of major mystical thinkers for further reading and study.

Session 2: Contemplatio - fixing the mind on God
We will consider a mystical approach to contemplation using brief selections from letters of Clare of Assisi, her imagery of “the Mirror of Eternity,” and her instructions to a Sister on her method of contemplative prayer.

Session 3: Dilectio - the delights of God’s love
We will sample the rich (and historically often controversial) theme of romantic and even erotic love as an image for knowing God, specifically through selections from Ramon Llull’s Book of the Lover and the Beloved. We’ll also briefly touch on this theme’s roots in the Biblical Song of Songs.

Session 4: Passio - knowing God in suffering
The cross, suffering, and death of Christ may seem an unlikely ground for a way of contemplation often associated with “raptures” and “ecstasy,” but it is in fact central to the mystical vision. We’ll look at excerpts of Bonaventure’s reflections on the Cross and Passion of Christ, and on Francis of Assisi as an example of mystical union with Christ.

Session 5: Ablatio - the way of negation and unknowing
The pinnacle of experiencing God, according to virtually all of the great mystics, is the entry into a state of unknowing, beyond conceiving or describing. In this session, we’ll use selections from Angela of Foligno’s Memorial to approach the mystical via negativa (“way of negation”) and the compelling, if counter-intuitive idea of the “darkness of God.”

Jungian Dream Interpretation

CLOSED

5 consecutive Fridays
6:00-7:30 pm Eastern Time, USA
Beginning October 8, 2021

Instructor: Maxson J. McDowell, PhD, LMSW, LP

7.5 CE contact hours for licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists.

We don’t know where dreams come from but, from experience, we know their purpose. They show us the next possible step in our developing consciousness. They warn us if we are going astray, encourage us if we need it and offer penetrating insights into our confusion. To interpret dreams we have to be disciplined and logical but also emotional, feeling, imaginative and sensate. Using Jung’s concepts as our guide, we will combine our insights to explore each dream and feel success when the class as a whole recognizes an answer and experiences a deepening of consciousness. We will not work with class members’ dreams. Please bring a dream, with permission, from a family member or friend.

Please look at the suggested readings at this address in advance of the start of this class: www.jungny.com/jungian-dream-interpretation-readings


Learning Objectives
On completion of this class, you will be able to:

  1. Distinguish between associations, explanations, and amplifications to a dream image.
  2. Distinguish between Freud's and Jung's use of associations to dream images.
  3. Identify which part of a dream gives the current psychological situation.
  4. Recognize the dream's setting and its importance.
  5. Practice using both logic and imagination in dream analysis.
  6. Identify some physiological reactions of the dreamer which demonstrate a useful interpretation.
  7. Describe the relationship between a dream and the dreamer's psychological progress.
  8. Recognize when a dream may (or may not) be helpful in clinical work.
  9. Recognize what Jung meant by a "true symbol."
