Saturday, December 8, 2018. 9:30am – 4:30pm

A daylong seminar led by
Jane Selinske, Ed.D., LCSW, LP

Contact hours: Six CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers and Psychoanalysts for this program.

In C.G. Jung’s early life he participated in family séances, wrote his doctoral dissertation in search of a medical answer to mediumistic behavior, kept aware of parapsychological research during his career and attended séances well into his fifties. His maternal Spiritualistic influences and his paternal Christian history were a constant struggle for Jung during his life time. Additionally, his religious experiences mediated through the collective unconscious were factors that contributed to Jung’s ongoing search to understand the intersection of spirituality and science. In his quest to unite the spiritual and the scientific, Jung leaned on his experiences with Spiritualism and his mythic life with the dead. This workshop will discuss how the origin of Jungian psychology was influenced by Jung’s exposure to Spiritualism, his descent into the psyche and his mythic life with the dead.
