Jung the Artist in Search
of the Mysterium Coniunctionis: Individuation, A New Myth, Part 2

5 consecutive Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:30pm. Eastern Time, USA via Zoom
Beginning April 13, 2022

Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW

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

This second course will continue to develop the comparison and elaboration of C.G. Jung as Artist of the Red Book and Jung’s Analytical Psychology in relation to but not limited to 20th Century artists and their work in search of the spiritual, or the Mysterium Coniunctionis, summarily as Jung did. See description for Part 1 for more detail.

Using the works of modern artists and writers, we will discuss the structure of the psyche as outlined in Jung’s Analytical Psychology, including the concepts of Ego, The Shadow, Anima and Animus and The Self. We will also discuss the components of the Conjunction and the meaning and functions of psychological processes of the Conscious, Unconscious and Individuation from a Jungian perspective. We will aim for a fundamental understanding of the creative process of Individuation as amplified by “The Old Wise Woman” A Study of Active Imagination with mythological parallels to what we may call the “personal myth” of the subject/artist and that of 20th Century artists. Experiential class participation will include guided Active of participants’ own dream work.
You do not have to have taken Part 1 to register for Part 2.

Jung the Artist in Search
of the Mysterium Coniunctionis: Individuation, A New Myth, Part 1

5 consecutive Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:30pm. Eastern Time, USA via Zoom
Beginning March 2, 2022

Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW

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

This course will introduce a comparison and elaboration of C.G. Jung as Artist of the Red Book and Jung’s Analytical Psychology in relation to but not limited to 20th Century artists and their work in search of the spiritual, or the Mysterium Coniunctionis, summarily as Jung did.

A mysterious, unfathomable medium is where the creative process occurs in the Mysterium Coniunctionis, in the unconscious where the emergence of consciousness evolves over time. Jung gives a thorough account of the problems of philosophical alchemy, and in particular of its main endeavor-- the synthesis of opposites. He succeeds in showing that “the world of alchemical symbols does not belong to the rubbish heap of the past, but stands in a very real and living relationship to our most recent discoveries concerning the psychology of the unconscious.”

Using the works of modern artists and writers, we will discuss the structure of the psyche as outlined in Jung’s Analytical Psychology, including the concepts of Ego, The Shadow, Anima and Animus and The Self.  We will also discuss the components of the Conjunction and the meaning and functions of psychological processes of the Conscious, Unconscious and Individuation from a Jungian perspective.  We will aim for a fundamental understanding of the creative process of Individuation as amplified by the instructor’s own art, such as the painting above, Poseidon’s Ear, and that of 20th Century artists. Experiential class participation will include guided Active Imagination of participants’ own dream work.


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

  1. Discuss the Structure of Psyche based on C.G. Jung’s Analytical Psychology.
  2. Demonstrate a basic rudimentary understanding of the psychological dynamics of psyche.
  3. Demonstrate a basic rudimentary understanding of the components of the Conjunction.
  4. Explain the meaning and functions of the psychological processes of Conscious, Unconscious, and Individuation from a Jungian perspective.
  5. Demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the creative process of Individuation based on the work of C.G. Jung.

Ecosophy: An Ethico-Aesthetic Paradigm

Instructor: David Walczyk, EdD, LP, NCPsyA

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

“Individuals must become both more united and increasingly different.”– Felix Guattari

“Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the man who is as well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.”– Carl Jung

In this course participants will be introduced to the ethico-aesthetic paradigm called Ecosophy, developed by French psychoanalyst Felix Guattari (1930-1992). Specific attention will be given to his text The Three Ecologies and its critique of capitalism’s effects on our personal and collective mental ecology (subjectivity), social ecology, and environmental ecology. We will connect The Three Ecologies and the psychological tools it provides directly to psychological wellness and clinical practice.

After unpacking and applying the Three Ecologies we will bring in Jung to help us answer the question, did Guattari overlook a fourth ecology? The ecology of spirit. Or might the ecology of spirit already permeate the three ecologies identified by Guattari?

Get ready for a ride into the funhouse of radical psychoanalytic and spiritual critique of capitalism and its intent to form and subjugate your individual and our collective mental, social, and environmental ecologies to its needs and desires. Leave the course with tools for individuating in our time of what Guattari called Integrated World Capitalism (IWC). Leave with new tools for tough times.


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

  1. Recall and explain Ecosophy
  2. Demonstrate a pragmatic understanding of Mental Ecology (subjectivity)
  3. Demonstrate a pragmatic understanding of Social Ecology
  4. Demonstrate a pragmatic understanding of Environmental Ecology
  5. Summarize the interdependence of The Three Ecologies
  6. Apply Ecosophy to personal development
  7. Apply Ecosophy to clinical practice
  8. Utilize new psychological tools for our tough times

The Union of Men with Women, and Women with Men:
What Jung Has to Teach Us about the Relations between the Sexes

5 consecutive Mondays, 7:00 – 8:30pm Eastern Time, USA via Zoom.
Beginning April 11, 2022

Instructor: David Rottman, MA

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

In this course we will explore Jung’s ideas about how men and women can overcome their difficulties in relating to each other. Jung has much to say about the psychological prerequisites for sustaining a workable relationship. We will discuss the questions: What is the role of the unconscious in who we choose as a partner? What is the process of taking back a projection to the opposite sex? What are the components of relating to the “otherness” of the other?  What’s involved in the psychological task of accepting love? What is the role of wisdom as a bridge between men and women?

Jung’s pupil Marie-Louise Von Franz wrote: “Working out the problem of love between man and woman constellates unending hardships. But, as Jung mentioned, this is vitally important today not only for the individual but also for society and indeed for the moral and spiritual progress of mankind. It is a sphere visited today by the numen, where the weight of mankind’s problem has settled. That is the reason why the unconscious often uses impressive and important images to express the problem of love in order to show that it is something absolutely crucial.” (M-L Von Franz, Corpus Alchemicum Arabicum, p. 46)

Jung’s ideas of what makes for better relations with the opposite sex are invaluable, such as how a man’s grounding in his male shadow enables him to relate to women, and a woman’s grounding in her female shadow enables her to relate to men.

In the last portion of the course, we will explore how the process of completing our life’s journey (Individuation) manifests in the experience of inner and outer union.

Readings will consist of weekly handouts of quotations from Jung’s work and the work of his pupil Marie-Louse Von Franz.

Supplementary Texts:
The Way of the Image, Yoram Kaufmann
The Symbolic Quest, Edward C. Whitmont


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

  1. Discuss the stages of working through a projection to the opposite sex
  2. Define the distinctions between failed and successful attempts to make a union with the opposite sex, at both the inner and outer level (i.e. lesser and greater coniunctio)
  3. Identify the dimensions of the negative anima and animus in conflict between the sexes, and the developmental process of integrating their positive dimensions
  4. Summarize Jung’s view of the new importance of relatedness between men and women

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."

Ravishing Heaven: The mystical poetry of Jacapone da Todi

5 Wednesdays, 6:00 – 7:30pm, Eastern Time, USA via Zoom
Beginning March 2, 2022

Instructor: Brother Damien Joseph, SSF 

There are no CE’s offered for this course.

The mystics in every faith tradition look to experience and the inner life to inform their experience of the divine, which makes them a subject of great interest to all students of the human soul/psyche. It also often leads them out of step with institutional religion, and makes possible insights considered too “dangerous” for approved theologies.

Jacopone da Todi (c. 1230-1306) was a Franciscan Friar best known for his “Lauds” or poems of praise. Little known today, through the years his work has been both praised and denounced for its grittiness, disregard for poetic conventions of the day, and unapologetic portrayals of the good and bad of Jacopone’s spiritual journey. His tomb is inscribed with this provocative summation of his life: “The blessed bones of Jacapone di Benedictis of Todi, who having gone mad with the love of Christ, by a new artifice deceived the world and ravished heaven.”

Through an examination of his life, context and writing, we’ll explore mystical themes that have given rise to such mixed feelings about him: madness, fear, eroticism, and ecstasy. We will see how, like most mystics, Jacopone transcended first the cultural values of his day, and ultimately even the conventional religious understandings of the institutional church, bringing him into conflict with the highest authorities and even landing him in prison for a substantial portion of his adult life. What these conflicts could never do was to dissuade Jacapone from his path of falling madly, passionately, and even violently in love with the divine.

  1.  Explain the importance of dreams in Jungian psychoanalysis: Jung’s methods of dream interpretation:  The Creative Process of Form and Content in Active Imagination, Amplification, Individual Symbol Formation, and Individuation Process
  2. State the difference between ancient religious and mythological notions about the source and purpose of dreams and modern psychological theories.
  3. Discuss how dreaming has been depicted historically in art as a prophetic verbal and visual revelation from another dimension, which psychoanalysis now calls the unconscious.
  4. Explain how artists over the centuries have rendered in impressively profound images the phenomenon of dreaming as an activity essential to the transformation and expansion of consciousness.
  5. By painting dreams of their own in class, participants will directly embody the relation between art and psyche and then have an opportunity to share with other participants their uniquely personal experience of the creative process.

Jungian Dream Interpretation

5 consecutive Fridays
6:00-7:30 pm Eastern Time, USA
Beginning March 4, 2022

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

  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."
