    • Presentation: ARCHETYPAL PRESENCES: The Forms Roiling Beneath the Surface of Our Lives
      Jung approached the reality of the psyche with reverence because he believed that we do not create our thoughts and forms of expression any more than if we created animals in the forest.  They create us.  The role of the ego, then, is to observe, respect and dialogue with those intra-psychic “others” while holding fast to the maintenance of conscious life. This presentation will explore the forms which roil beneath the surface of our lives, and why our dialogue with them lifts us out of the mere surface features of our brief journeys on this planet.

    • Presentation: Jung, Jesus and Love

    • My understanding of love is derived from three perspectives: the works of Carl Jung, the teachings of Jesus, and contemporary research in Attachment Theory. Despite their radical differences in method and language, they all point to a similar reality and come to the same conclusion - the essence of existence, life and meaning is love.

      Eros, and its fullest expression as love, are at the very core of Jung’s personal transformation and the foundation of his psychological system. Jung taught that welcoming eros is the key to entering the internal domains of soul and spirit and ultimately achieving wholeness. Friday night’s presentation will explore how eros and love, what Jung called the “Mysterium Coniunctionis” relate to central Jungian insights such as anima/animus, logos, transference, individuation, and the Self.

      Saturday, March 13, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
      On Saturday, I will elaborate on the parallels between Jung’s observations about love, the core teachings of Jesus, and insights about love derived from Attachment Theory. I will also offer an Active Imagination experience that will help participants become more open to love and identify ways in which they block the flow of love.

    • Presentation: Beauty and the Beast--Jung and the Sacred Feminine
      C. G. Jung gave us profound tools for connecting with the self, other people and the collective. Without the concepts of the unconscious, archetype, anima, animus, individuation, collective unconscious, complex and shadow, we might still be living in a dark, numb cave in our psyche.

      Beauty and the Beast, a story written in 1740, is a metaphor for the anima-animus tangle. A beautiful, kind, and pure of heart maiden melts the negative anima complex that has held a young prince captive for most of his life. Thanks to Carl Jung we have come to understand that each of us is both the maiden and the spellbound beast.

      This presentation will explore how the study of stories and myths has informed our inner and outer worlds. We lived through a year that bombarded us with chaos and fear. This is a good time, I believe, to investigate the danger of the beast within the self and the collective. Can we break the spell? Let’s talk about it.

    • Presentation:  Integrative Spirituality: Conjoining Depth Psychological and Contemplative Modes of Inner Work
      The deepest purpose of human existence has been described by many seekers as Self-realization. This phrase has different meanings and this lecture explores two of them in depth. One of these is prominent in C. G. Jung’s depth psychology and the other in Eastern contemplative traditions, particularly Hindu contemplative traditions sourced by the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, and the more recent iterations expressed in the teachings of the great sages of Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism. The aims of these respective approaches may also be described in psychological terms as individuation and in spiritual discourse as awakening. While the aims and methods of each differ, this presentation investigates how they may be integrated in a way that conjoins soul and spirit, wholeness and freedom, and Western and Eastern modes of inner work.

    • Workshop: Practices for Integrating Jungian Depth Psychology and Contemplative Yoga

      Depth psychological work is a journey towards greater wholeness. A person circumambulates one’s life history as a means of understanding and integrating the contents of the psyche. Contemplative work detaches from psychic content in order to discover who one is independent of history, gender, age, and conditioned aspects of the personality. This workshop explores how to combine both modes via attention to practices that integrate psychological, relational, and contemplative aspects of life.
