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.

The Master Archetype: Integrating the Opposites in Life, Thought and Psychotherapy

Seminar #1: Fall 2018-2019
12 Wednesdays: 7:00- 8:30pm
September 12 – December 19
(excluding September 19 and November 7 and 21)

It can be said that the interdependence and union of opposites is the basis of Jung's psychology, the key to the practice of psychotherapy, and the "master archetype," or most general principle, of both life and thought. In this workshop we will trace the history of this archetype in mysticism, alchemy, philosophy, and psychology and explore Jung's thinking on coincidentia oppositorum from The Red Book to Mysterium Coniunctionis. Jung's understanding of this archetype will be considered against the background of his study of alchemy and will be contextualized in relation to the history of both eastern and western spirituality and thought, including Taoism, Hinduism, the Kabbalah, Christian mysticism, Hegel Nietzsche, Freud, and Derrida. Our discussion will focus on how opposition is central to both individuation and the psychotherapeutic process. We will examine Jung's reflections on such oppositions as conscious and unconscious, meaning and absurdity, reason and imagination, life and death, persona and shadow, individual and collective, and anima and animus. Our discussion will range over Jung's views on a wide range of topics, including the self, symbols, art, the imagination, dreams, God, gender, and the meaning of life.

This seminar will consider how the conflict and integration of opposites is a critical factor in our own and our patient's lives, as well as in art and other creative activity. We will see how the integration of opposites serves both as a foundation for a unified "self" and a unified psychology and psychotherapy, one in which different perspectives upon or "maps" of the human psyche are understood as modeling aspects of an integrated whole.

In the course of this seminar we will reflect upon the possibility of living a conscious and aware life when our thoughts, actions and feelings have unconscious determinants; affirming life in the face of death and accepting death in the midst of life; living with and embracing those aspects of ourselves that we find repugnant and even self-destructive; balancing order and disorder in a world and psyche that emerges from chaos; achieving meaning while at the same time recognizing and embracing the absurd; and, pursuing the good while recognizing its interconnection with the inevitability and horror of evil.

The Shadow

5 consecutive Mondays, 6:00–7:40pm  Beginning October 1

Instructor: Gary Brown, LCSW, LP

At the same time that the 19th century West was increasingly intrigued by the notion of “the double” (e.g. stories such as Frankenstein and The Secret Sharer), the new field of psychology was being born. Jung and others realized that much natural phenomena that had been labeled esoteric and occult was actually, or also, psychological. The “royal road” in this new field was found by the new psychoanalysts in dreams. Jung researched approximately 1,400 dreams of his patients and those of his students each year and found there were recurring structures with consistent aspects, which appeared as the “persons” of the psyche in dreams.

In his researches in psyche, Jung began to see a topological model. Much as Freud had discovered ego, super-ego, and id, Jung found persona-ego-shadow-anima/animus and Self. These often appeared as objects or persons in dreams and were often projected onto people and situations in the outer world.

Shadow is everywhere, yet, as we will see in the model, it is often buried in our studies, given less attention than it deserves, its importance and its archetypal depth overlooked. Shadow’s location in the Jungian model will be explored until we reach the depths where we find its connection to the Self.

C.G. Jung, CW 16, p. 283

This course will provide an overview of major clinical issues involved in working in the transference/countertransference field.

  • Projective processes in T/C
  • Frame
  • Multiple modes of consciousness through which we perceive and communicate T/C reactions in the therapeutic field
  • Dreams, Active Imagination and Metaphors in T/C

  • Resistance
  • Intense affects in T/C such as love, hate, envy, etc.
  • T/C with Borderline and Narcissistic patients

Trauma and Dissociated States: A Jungian Perspective

5 consecutive Tuesdays. 7:00–8:40pm. Beginning October 2 
Instructor: Harry Fogarty, PhD

Understandings of trauma and its psychological consequences are central to Psychoanalytic Theory and Practice. While reviewing different historical approaches to traumatic states, our focus will be on a Jungian approach to trauma and dissociation, as distinct from repression. From a Jungian perspective, dissociation is what we are not aware of on a conscious level that is retained by our bodies in a preverbal sense. Specific links between trauma and somatic states, “embodiment,” will be explored. In particular we will consider shifts in therapeutic approaches as suggested by Schore, Wilkinson, Levine, and Kalsched. Our conversations will be rooted in suggested readings and clinical material.
Note: This course is held at 305 West 107th Street, Suite N

Painting the Psyche: Wonders of the Dream World

5 consecutive Thursdays,  6:30–8:10 pm. Beginning October 4

Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW

This workshop on “Painting the Psyche” will be an opportunity to experience and explore archetypal images that emerge from what Jung calls the creative imagination. We will delve into the depths of the psyche to render in paint a visual of the dream image and to amplify what the dream world so wondrously reflects to us. With watercolors as our medium and paintbrushes as our instruments, we will depict a dimension that is extraordinarily difficult to discern. We will rediscover the dream world and give form, in detail, to its expressions and engage in an in-depth elaboration of what it so profoundly implies and portends. Together as a group, we will share our felt experiences of the creative process. Watercolors, brushes, and paper will be provided.
Fee for materials: add additional $20 to tuition fee.

"Like the related ideas of atman and tao in the East, the idea of the self is at least in part a product of cognition, grounded neither on faith nor on metaphysical speculation but on the experience that under certain conditions the unconscious spontaneously brings forth an archetypal symbol of wholeness. From this we must conclude that some such archetype occurs universally and is endowed with a certain numinosity."
—from C.G. Jung, Aion: Contributions to the Symbolism of the Self

One of the most challenging aspects of Buddha's teaching, both intellectually and experientially, is the doctrine that no self has inherent reality or independent existence. Buddhist meditation practices, studies and ethics are the path to that insight. This talk will explore the Buddhist no-self teachings and practices, and solicit discussion of how they relate to people's non-Buddhist views of self, and particularly to the Jungian archetype of the self as a universal symbol of wholeness.

Passion: What Can We Learn About It from Jung?

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

Instructor: David Rottman, MA

Human beings are born naturally passionate, according to Jung, but the "blocking of libido" (CW 5, p.170-171), as he called it, can lead to a feeling that life has lost its zest and enjoyment, as well as to a feeling of being stuck, or lost. Jung has much to say about how we can create a new channel for passion in work and relationships, in order to be creatively engaged and involved in our lives. In this course we will explore Jung's ideas about passion as well as the ideas of his main pupil, Marie-Louise Von Franz.

A Jungian Aesthetic: Art, Active Imagination, and the Creative Process

Tuesday, December 4, 2018  12:30 – 1:30 pm

Speaker: Maria Taveras, LCSW

A hundred years ago, in 1913, when Jung invented active imagination, a female voice from the unconscious said to him that what he was doing was art. Jung disparaged this anima figure as "that aesthetic lady" and protested emphatically: "It is not art!"

In 20th century modern art, there was a famous Freudian aesthetic based on free association – surrealism. Now in the 21st century, especially after the publication of Jung's Red Book, we have an opportunity, for the first time, to develop a Jungian aesthetic based on active imagination. What exactly is the relation between art, active imagination, and the creative process?

Maria Taveras, LCSW, is a Jungian analyst in private practice in New York City and an award-winning sculptor and painter of "Dream Art." Her website is www.jungiantherapy.com.

The Divine Mind: The Psychological History of God’s Inner Journey

Saturday, October 27, 2018  9:30am– 4:30pm


A daylong seminar led by
Michael Gellert, MA, LCSW

Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

An exploration of the Abrahamic God's evolution as depicted in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too. – St. Teresa of Avila

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware. – Martin Buber

The epic story of the Abrahamic God's inner journey begins in the Hebrew Bible, the common source of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He emerges here as a living, textured personality as tormented as a Shakespearean character and as divided against humanity as the devil who personifies his dark side. Yet in heroic fashion, he embarks on a journey to greater consciousness, stretching into himself in the Talmud, New Testament, Qur'an, and Gnostic writings. Then finally, with and through the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic mystics, he discovers his true self as the absolute Godhead. He takes up residence in their psyches as their own Divine Mind or true self. What God learned from his journey might be something that we in turn could learn from and that could help us at the dawn of the twenty-first century. In this way, God's inner journey becomes a metaphor for our own.

The Biblical God's PTSD and Other Afflictions

An exploration of the origins, features, and healing of Yahweh's deep-seated wound and their implications for us.

The degree of character flexibility, the ability to open oneself to the outside world or to close oneself to it, depending on the situation, constitutes the difference between a reality-oriented and a neurotic character structure. – Wilhelm Reich

This presentation will focus on the profound disappointments and suffering that the biblical God encountered on his inner journey toward greater consciousness. We will explore how these contributed toward his trauma and other existential and clinical afflictions as illustrated in the Hebrew Bible. We will also discuss what it means historically and for us today that the God of Western and Islamic civilization suffered from these conditions. Special attention will be given to what Jung, among others, has called the "Yahweh complex." Our approach to God will be as a figure of the religious imagination rather than as a representation of an objective Godhead.
