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.

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.


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.
