Presentation: Reframing our Sense of Self and World in Plague Time Our personal and collective encounter with an invisible antagonist, our enforced sequestering, our interrupted activities, our removal from familiar points of reference occasion both anxiety and fear in us. How are we to understand this experience psychologically, move from a sense of victimage to personal agency, and find enlargement in times of diminishment. James Hollis, (PhD) is a Jungian Analyst in Washington, DC, and author of sixteen books, the latest being Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times.
October 9, 2020, Fanny Brewster, Ph.D.
Presentation: The Racial Complex: A Conversation on Racism, Shadow and the Personal Unconscious
It appears that gently is our best way to enter through a Jungian psychology door, crossing the threshold to discuss racial complexes. As our collective engages and struggles with issues of mortality, violence and racial relations, we are all affected in the most profound ways. Talking with one another, the hallmark of depth psychology, has always been a path to considerations of healing and wholeness. It can also teach us more about compassion as we begin to understand the human narrative of those we consider “Other”.
Fanny Brewster, (PhD) is a Core Faculty member in the Clinical Psychology Department at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Prior to beginning in this capacity she served for five years as Adjunct Faculty working within the Depth, Archetypal and Jungian Psychology (DJA), and Depth Psychotherapy Departments (DPT), while maintaining a New York City private practice.
November 13th and 14th, 2020, Susan Rowland, Ph.D.
Friday, , November 13, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Presentation: Jung and Arts-Based Research: what it is and why it matters Jung may have rejected art, but the new research paradigm of Arts-Based Research (ABR) has decided that his The Red Book (2009) is a pioneering text. ABR is the rediscovery and discovery of forms of knowing and new knowledge through art practice. Arts-based research is not art therapy, even though it uses some of same methods of experiential creative work. Rather, arts-based research is a successor to alchemy as a way of knowing and being that sees no split between art and science. Jungian psychology offers the existing literature on ABR a language and further skills on its primary ontology of the psychic image, intuition, embodied knowing and collaboration with the universe. In turn, ABR shows that Jungian psychotherapy can be done with the world (not just in the consulting room). This lecture will explore all these questions and give an example of a vital piece of Jungian ABR that has vitality for our times.
Saturday, November 14th, 9:30 a.m. - noon
Workshop: Jung and Art Practice for Making Knowledge The workshop will review various modes of Jungian arts-based research. We will try Jungian skills such as dreamwork, active imagination and amplification for art as research. Also we will explore how knowing has been imperfectly distributed across Jung’s four functions of thinking, feeling, intuition and sensation. Susan Rowland (PhD) teaches Jung and the arts at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She has published ten books on Jung, creativity, gender and the arts. Her latest is Jungian Arts-Based Research and The Nuclear Enchantment of New Mexico with Joel Weishaus (2020). Her own arts-based research practice is writing detective novels.
