The Biblical Exodus from Egypt is an archetypal journey of healing from collective trauma and reconnecting with the sacred in the wake of catastrophic loss. Reflecting on this sacred story, we explore how the constricted consciousness created by personal, intergenerational and collective trauma is transformed. Jungian theory guides our understanding of how trauma creates a state of exile, where the ego becomes alienated from the Self.  As we are awakened through numinous experience, we reconnect with the Self’s guiding wisdom.

The archetypes in the Exodus story show us how to grieve the losses engendered by both personal and intergenerational trauma, reconnect with the wellsprings of ancestral memory, discover the light hidden in the darkness of what may have been disowned in our family and cultural lineages, and soften defenses developed in response to trauma. As we do, we open to rebirth and post-traumatic repatterning of consciousness.

In this program we explore the rich psychological meaning of the archetypal journey of the Exodus story, a vessel into which Jewish sages over millennia distilled mystical wisdom. We find that this timeless story is also the story of our own time, offering profound insight for healing from personal and transgenerational trauma following the cataclysmic upheavals of recent collective history.

Understanding exile as disconnection from the Source, we follow Moses, keeper of the spiritual fire, and Serach bat Asher, preserver of ancestral memory. We encounter the depths with Joseph, touch collective grief with Lilith, experience the Red Sea crossing and Miriam’s well as psychological rebirth and Sinai as the repatterning of traumatized consciousness.

Wisdom drawn from millennia of Jewish mystical interpretations of the Exodus, as well as analytical psychology perspectives guide our exploration. The role of the Shekhinah (the Divine Feminine) in kabbalah is central in restoring our capacities for feeling and embodiment, both of which are profoundly injured when we experience trauma. The workshop will explore the teachings of Jungian scholars on themes related to Jewish mysticism and intergenerational trauma. The wider cross-cultural mythic implications of the Exodus story as both a personal and collective story about healing the relationship with the Self will also be explored.


The workshop will explore the following:

  1. A short overview of Jewish mysticism including Jungian perspectives on kabbalah, and Jungian views on transgenerational trauma.
  2. Various archetypes of healing in the Exodus story:

(a) The experience of exile in post-modernity and its meaning in our own time, including during the pandemic

(b) Awakening from the trance of exile through the relatedness of the Feminine

(c) discovering the Self through numinous experience (Moses)

(d) cultural complexes and the loss of connection to the Self

(e) reconnection with ancestral memory (Serach bat Asher and Lilith)

(f) learning to trust again in the wake of collective trauma (the movement through the Red Sea as rebirth, and the well of Miriam)

(g) Repatterning of traumatized consciousness (Sinai)


Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to:

1. Demonstrate competency in working with those experiencing personal, transgenerational and cultural trauma.

2. Explain Biblical myths and symbols from the perspective of Jewish mysticism.

3. Describe the healing impact of reconnecting with the cultural collective unconscious in transforming collective trauma.

4. Explain Biblical myths and symbols through the lens of Jungian theory.

5. Recognize how reconnection to cultural collective unconscious supports healing of transgenerational and cultural trauma.

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.

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.

Lisa Marchiano, LCSW, NCPsyA, is a clinical social worker, certified Jungian analyst and a nationally certified psychoanalyst in private practice in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received her MSW from New York University and completed analytic training at the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. She is on the faculty of the Philadelphia Jung Institute and co-hosts This Jungian Life, a podcast devoted to exploring current topics through the lens of depth psychology. Her writings have appeared in Quillette, the journal Psychological Perspectives, and the Journal of Analytical Psychology. She has presented on Jungian topics across the US as well as in Europe. Her first book Motherhood: Facing and Finding Yourself  explores motherhood as a catalyst for personal growth.
