The Healing Power of Symbols
When our inner world communicates with consciousness, it does so in symbolic form. The unconscious speaks to us in dreams and through myths and fairy tales with great clarity if we know how to make sense of the images. The majority of dreams will have a message for us as individuals, though there are also dreams which have a message for the wider world, or which lead to spectacular breakthroughs in knowledge to benefit us all.
Thurs 19 ? Sat 21? March 2020:
Camillo Gallardo Jungian Analyst, IFS, IoTP
A Question of SELF:
Jung, IFS, Shaminism, and Soma
The artist, shaman and analyst are all concerned with the evolution of space, either fighting for the redemption of the mythic space of art or unconsciously serving the powers that are against it. The modern artist uses the empty space, the shaman the sacred space and the analyst the psychic space
The space in the primitive's world is sacred, and it is treated with the utmost delicacy, as if space itself, and all the natural wonders within it, are part of the great cosmic godhead, to be treated with eternal respect and holy adoration.
We have come a long way from this "naive" attitude of space. We clumsily stomp over our collective space with offensive billboards, loud, electronic broadcasts, bad architecture and a legion of narcissistic personalities competing desperately for a greater expansion of selfishly procured space.
Perhaps a concluding thought here OR Total re-write by Camillo :)

With kind permission of The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism
This talk will consider the unconscious patterns which run through families and generations of families, as one generation inherits, responds and reacts to the complexes and archetypal energies of the previous generation – and even of the generation before that – parents, grandparents and in some cases, great-grandparents. Melanie Rein will draw on the symbolic nature of the genogram, or psychological genealogy tree, exploring its connection to the Tree of Life and its value as a visual image for eliciting, revealing and deepening insights into family and ancestral patterning.
Melanie Rein (PhD) is a training analyst and accredited supervisor with the Guild of Analytical Psychologists (G.A.P.) and a member of the Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists (IGAP).
