Intensive Program 1: Life Transitions and the Growth of Consciousness

July 8-12, 2019

Our first week focuses on Life Transitions and the Growth of Consciousness, beginning with a session that addresses what Jung called the need for “regular work” or an ongoing effort to throw off unconsciousness, captured in our attitudes, wounds and complexes.  In this spirit we also explore mid-life as another psychological struggle for consciousness and life purpose.  The family, especially parenting, is then explored as a crucible for incubations and shadow work, followed by the psychic movement of adolescence. The week concludes with a look at the pitfalls and possibilities in old age, a period Jung considered rich with potential for growth.

Transitions Relating To Work

“But the more I have thought of it, the more I have been convinced that after all I was in the first place correct, and our regularly repeated efforts to throw off unconsciousness—that is, by regular work—has made our humanity.”  C.G. Jung

The first session explores transitions relating to what Jung called “regular work” and the need to rid ourselves of dangerous, unconscious attitudes captured in complexes, attitudes and personal wounds. In Jung’s view this “regular work” is about overcoming the demons that keep us from self-fulfillment and healthy relationships. This session will examine the various types of psychological “work” that contribute to a healthy psyche.

Mid–Life:  A Psychological Struggle for Consciousness 

In “Soul and Death” Jung stated that life is an energy process. Fear of moving with this life energy in the first stage of life can hold a person back from achieving one’s individuated goals. However, at mid-life there is a fork in the road and we are propelled forward with another opportunity to experience and acknowledge a striving to fulfill ourselves. Through discussion and exploration of the psychological struggle in mid-life participants will come to a greater understanding of Jung’s emphasis on the importance of consciousness, meaning and purpose in life.

Family as Crucible for Individuation

The intimacy of family relationships will inevitably mean that we encounter parts of ourselves that are unlikely to surface in other contexts.  We may experience shadow aspects of our psyche that are usually split off, denied or disowned.  In this session we will explore how intimate relationships such as parenting can introduce us to our shadow. We will use clinical vignettes, fairy tales and dreams.

Adolescence and the Emerging Self

Adolescence is a process of separation and a search for identity fraught with upheavals. Analytic psychology views this phase of life as a potentially creative and healing regression to infancy. We will explore the forward and backward psychic movements of adolescence, and the emerging self that holds these forces together in order to lead the young person into life. We will be drawing on memories of our own experiences.
Instructor: Mary Ayers, PhD, LCSW

10:00 am – 12:30 pm, & 1:30 – 4:00 pm

Transition into Old Age

Aging held a special significance for Jung and he wrote extensively about it as a crowning of a life struggle with individuation. In “The Stages of Life” he writes that an aging person has a duty and responsibility to devote serious attention to himself/herself.  Jung called this period the “Afternoon of Life,” a time to explore what we have neglected or repressed during our lifetime. This session will explore both the losses and opportunities for transformation using life examples, dreams, myths and fairy tales.
Instructor: Julie Bondanza, PhD
