"Wandering between two worlds, one dead, The other powerless to be born …"    --  Matthew Arnold, 1885
 
As individuals, we often find ourselves in in-between times, somewhere between a world we knew, and a world that has not yet emerged. These times are hours of crisis, disorientation, loss, and enormous anxiety. Similarly cultures, eras, civilizations go through in-between times. Ours is such a moment in history. How can we recover our bearings, sustain dignity and integrity when things fall apart?  What abides amid such discontinuity? Together we will reflect on what we may do to recover a sense of personal autonomy when our road map whirls from our grasp and leaves us confounded.
 

                                    

Saturday Workshop

What is Depth Psychology, and Why It Matters?

Date:

February 2, 2019 9:30 a.m.– noon

Presenter: James Hollis, Ph.D.
Location: St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, Inwood at Mockingbird
$40.00 non-members (includes a complimentary continental breakfast)
 
How does depth psychology differ from other modalities? How are its premises and methods of use to all of us, whether in therapy or not? During this workshop I will explain the three principles: it's not about what it's about; what you see is a compensation for what you don’t see; and, it's all metaphor. I will provide examples of all of these lenses for discovery and interpretation of our mythopoetic psyche.

James Hollis, Ph.D., is a Jungian Analyst, Director of the Jung Society of Washington, D.C., and author of Living an Examined Life and several other books and articles.
