Cultural Practice of Image in Poetry, Art and Psychology

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

10 Wednesdays, 6:45 – 8:25 pm
Beginning March 4, 2020 (except April 8th)
Instructor:  Sylvester Wojtkowski, PhD

Jung’s opus is a testimony to the power and importance of images for the human psyche and our culture. For Jung, psyche consists essentially of images which “have a quality of consciousness.” Since his confrontation with the unconscious in The Red Book, Jung worked ceaselessly to develop psychology rooted in the soul.  The Modern Man Search for the Soul is essentially a quest to notice spontaneously emerging images, to express and value them, and dialogue with and otherwise engage them.  This encounter with non-ego images as persons is transformative to the ego, which increasingly becomes aware of itself as an image and individuates in the process. 

To deepen our appreciation of the mytho-poesis, myth and image making capacity of the psyche, we will further study contributions of the French philosopher of science and poetic imagination—Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962).  Through reading and discussion of his exploration of elemental imagination we will deepen our understanding and appreciation of images and their roles in our lives. 

Our journey will aim at the notion of, in the words of James Hillman, the imaginal ego, that is, the ego that sees itself as an image, which is open to engage other images non-defensively, and to be transformed by them. The practice of the image in many forms will aim towards the common ground that the Jungian psychoanalyst Michael Vannoy Adams calls imaginology--the study of the imagination.  Location: TBA

The Art of C.G. Jung

5 consecutive Wednesdays, 6:30–8:10 pm. Begins April 10, 2019

Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW

Inspiration for this course derives from the book The Art of C.G. Jung. Just published in November, this new book is not about Jung the analyst, but about Jung the artist.

For the very first time, this book documents the full extent of Jung’s creative imagination as a visual artist. It comprises examples of Jung’s visual art both before and after The Red Book. It includes sketchbooks and pencil drawings from Jung’s childhood, pastel and watercolor landscapes from his youth, carved and painted wooden fantasy figures, ink and colored pencil mandalas, gouache visionary paintings, and stone carvings. Essays in the book situate Jung’s artistry in the context of modern art (Dada, Cubism, and Surrealism) and describe his own personal art collection. The Art of C.G. Jung will be required reading in this course. (Copies will be available for purchase at the bookstore of the C.G Jung Foundation.) Participants will bring their own copies of the book to each class meeting for discussion of the weekly assigned readings. Finally, participants will also apply their own creative imagination by doing hands-on, in-class art exercises (mandalas and fantasy drawings) under the guidance of instructor Maria Taveras, who is not only a Jungian analyst but also an award-winning practitioner of “Dream Art.” Fee for art materials: add $15 to tuition fee.

Relationships with Others

 

What Can We Learn About Them from C.G. Jung?

5 consecutive Mondays, 6:00–7:40pm  Beginning February 25

 

Instructor: David Rottman, MA

Fulfilling relationships are "Extroverted Individuation" according to C.G. Jung. In this course we will explore what Jung meant by that statement, as well as his many other helpful ideas (and the ideas of his pupil, Marie-Louise Von Franz) about the nature of both conscious and unconscious connections between people. We will focus on these questions: What makes energy flow in relationships? Where do relationships get blocked? How do we find positive relationships with individuals and with groups or communities? How do we renew existing relationships? How do outer relationships mirror what's going on inside us? What does it mean to have a connection with another person at the deepest level? What does it mean to have a positive connection with a group?

Sacrifice and Individuation

5 consecutive Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:10 pm    Beginning April 11

Instructor: David Walczyk, EdD, LP

“Sacrifice is nothing other than the production of sacred things.” — Georges Bataille

Sacrifice, in its spiritual sense, is defined as something you give up for the hope of something better. If the purpose of sacrifice is something better, the production of something sacred, then why is it so hard? In this class, we seek to answer that question and also ask the larger question, what is the relationship between sacrifice and livingthe process of individuation? Our interest is not intellectual or abstract but rather practical, existential, and relational. Participants are encouraged to consider their relationship to sacrifice and its purpose in their individuation and in the individuation of those they care about.

We begin by grounding sacrifice historically asking the questions why did it develop and how has its meaning and purpose changed over time? We then sharpen our focus and consider sacrifice and its relationship to individuation by engaging with the work of Carl Jung and Georges Bataille. With a firm grounding in the history and fundamentals of sacrifice and individuation, we consider how that relationship manifests itself in our time: first, collectively in the wellness industry and then personally in clinical practice.

Trauma and the Healing Power of the Image

5 consecutive Mondays, 6:00–7:40 pm  Beginning April 8

Instructor: Gary Brown, LCSW, LP

Human life is trauma, at best pain and pleasure mixed fine . . . More often, “nasty, brutish, and short” (Hobbes, “Leviathan”). Religion and, later, psychoanalytic work addressed this fact of life.  War and what was then called shell shock, as well as hysteria, were some of the early foci of the newly discovered and developed psychotherapy.  At the heart of this was psyche, the mysterious function which develops images from the pains and pleasures of life and allows meaning to happen. Though Freud enunciated what he called the Unconscious, Jung scientifically proved its existence via the Word Association Test, bringing Freud and psychoanalysis international attention.  Jung’s work became a quest for how the newly-discovered psychotherapy worked.  In a private conversation with an analyst, Jung said that history would record that he had discovered the “healing power of the image.”  We will explore in this class what Jung discovered:  that images contain and hold affect, the experience of feeling or emotion.
