In Thrall or Debt to Circe? Jungianism and the Devouring Uroboros

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

5 consecutive Thursdays, 7:00–8:30pm Beginning March 5
Instructor: William Baker, PsyD

Homer’s story of Odysseus and Circe provides a vital amplification for a dangerous paradox one might face in approaching the unconscious with Jung’s analytical psychology. Just as Circe becomes either an invaluable guide to the underworld or a seductive destroyer, depending on the attitude one takes in approaching her, Jungian psychology may be used to either genuinely and consciously engage the depths, or as an intoxicating shortcut to archetypal identification. “Anyone who identifies with the collective psyche—or, in mythological terms, lets himself be devoured by the monster—and vanishes in it, attains the treasure that the dragon guards, but he does so in spite of himself and to his own greatest harm” (CW 7 para. 477, 1916/1966). When any system of thought is embraced as an all-encompassing ideology, one is seduced and devoured by a sense of perfectionism in which shadow is dissociated and projected rather than honestly owned and integrated. In this course we will explore the psychology and mythology of fundamentalism, idolatry, and other seductive dead-ends off the path of individuation.

Gilgamesh, Akhnaten: The King Heroes and a Call for a New Ecological Consciousness

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

5 consecutive Tuesdays, 6:30 – 8:00pm. Beginning March 3
Instructor: Ilona Melker, LCSW

Gilgamesh and Akhnaten are two king heroes whose stories from the ancient world inform us about the development of the heroic ego successfully separating from Mother and becoming victorious over Mother Nature. They are both important stories for the development of human consciousness and spirituality.  In this course we will discuss the Epic of Gilgamesh as well as Akhnaten’s contribution to individuation, consciousness and spirituality. We will also look at what happens in the process of individuation when the hero separates from Mother Nature and the ego becomes inflated while cutting down the cedar forest and rejecting, subduing the goddess. We will explore Akhnaten’s story of monotheism and why worshipping the Sun Ra was a one-sided exultation of solar consciousness. We will consider what Jung meant when he stated that, “Nature must not win but she must not lose either.”  In this era of climate change, artificial intelligence, and automation, might we need to invite the Goddess back into our consciousness, uniting the masculine and feminine for the sake of a new consciousness in our collective development?

Attachment in Relationships

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

4 Thursdays, 6:30–8:20pm Beginning March 5 (Note:4 sessions)
Instructor:  David Walczyk, EdD, LP, NCPsyA

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

Have you ever wondered how our earliest relationships influence, inform and even shape our later adult relationships? If so, then you’re interested in attachment.  In this course, we will review the forms of attachment, examine how attachment style affects adult life, and delineate the biological basis, that is the neuroscience, of attachment. Participants who complete the course will gain a pragmatic understanding of attachment in their own lives and how it informs the lives of those they care about.

Attachment in Spirituality and Religion

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

This Online Course is Sold Out.
5 consecutive Thursdays, 6:30-8:00pm Beginning April 16
Instructor: David Walczyk, EdD, LP, NCPsyA

The influence and connection between our childhood relationships and our adult relationship with spirituality and religion will be the focus of this course. Pragmatically, we will consider how attachment style informs and often unconsciously structures the forms of spirituality and religion we are drawn to and engage with, as well as the types we reject, as adults. Why we may feel connected or disconnected from the spirituality or religion, we were brought up with and what we can do about it will be an underlying theme of the course. No prior understanding of attachment is required to take this course.
