REGRESSION TO THE PAST
FOR FREEDOM IN THE PRESENT
In this talk we will consider the relevance of regression as an exploration of the unconscious. We will look at how regression can delve deeply into our life stories and shed light on the beliefs and emotions that govern our lives. This discussion will include current, past life and interlife regression, considering how these can open up more choice and freedom in the present and offer scope for individuation.

SIGNIFICANCE OF JUNG
IN TODAY'S WORLD
Psychotherapist, Spiritual Director
Psychoanalysis and Analytic Psychology have always stood on the edge of contemporary culture. As a Jew in an increasingly Anti-Semitic world, (Freud) might well have needed to understate the collective dimension. Jung … found … a place for the mystical and for the collective. This would never be an easy place, but living through the turbulent times that included two world wars and the times that led up to them, his willingness to engage was a willingness to look at territory that is deeply disturbing. In hindsight, Jung’s claim to have seen the rise of Nazism foreshadowed in dream work [Jung 1947] sounds brilliant and prescient. At the time, it must have been terrifying; topical too in today’s world.

JUNG and TECHNOLOGY
Pantea Loftian PhD, MSc
An attempt to explore the relevance of Jung’s ideas and his thinking in a world where artificial intelligence is being built in the image of man. As the world we live in is increasingly connected through technology and the implications are changing the fabric of our societies, relationships and our sense of self, would Jung’s notion of Self help us preserve our sense of humanness in the face of unprecedented pace of change?
Friday 17th April 2020 - THE ANCESTORS
Melanie Rein, Jungian Analyst, IGAP

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).
SATURDAY WORKSHOP .
25th April 2020 1.30 - 4.30pm PHILEMON, KA, AND THE EMERGENCE OF THE CREATIVE SPIRIT IN JUNG'S RED BOOK AND ART 1919-1923; SOME REFLECTIONS
Diane Finiello Zervas, Jungian Training Analyst, IGAP, Educator (Red Book Seminars), Author, Private Practice, London
Diane is currently interested in Jung’s visual imagery in The Red Book, and is one of the leaders of the London Liber Novus reading seminars organised by The Circle of Analytical Psychology. Her essay on Jung’s mandala sketches, “Intimations of the Self”, was published by Norton in The Art of C.G. Jung, 2019.
Thanks to the publication of The Red Book (2009) and The Art of C.G. Jung (2019), we now have a substantial corpus of the visual images that Jung created whilst he was concurrently developing analytical psychology between 1913 and 1923.
In my workshop/seminar, I will identify several previously unrecognised representations of two of Jung’s most important personifications, the ‘dominant fathers’ Philemon and Ka. With their identities revealed, it becomes possible to trace their roles in some of Jung’s artistic works that include the image of the cross-quartered circle and sphere (which Jung called the quadratura circuli), his prime example of the reconciling symbol of the creation of the new god, and of individuation. Powerpoint images will be included and there will be ample time for discussion.
Friday (DATE TBA) May 2020
A QUESTION OF SELF:
JUNG, IFS, SOMA & SHAMANISM
Camillo Gallardo: Jungian Analyst, IFS, G.A.P.
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.
This seminar will consist of an IFS experiential demonstration, followed by questions and discussion regarding the presence of Active Imagination, Shaminism, Soma, and Self, in the work.
WORKSHOP (DATE TBA) June 2020 SATURDAY
ECOPSYCHOLOGY: EXPLORING THE SELF IN NATURE
Gillian Brown: CJC Chair, MA, SOPH, BRCP,
Chair CJC, Psychodynamic Psychotherapist & EcoPsychologist
This workshop will guide participants on an enquiry into their own nature through being in nature. We will walk out in nature, and look at how we exist symbolically and relationally within the environment, how therapy might work outside the therapy room and how an understanding of our place in the natural world may help address the urgent ecological challenges of our times.
