JUNG AND SYNCHRONICITY

Roderick Main, Jungian Analyst University of Essex

Jung developed his concept of synchronicity as a response to the cultural condition of his day (characterised by excessive rationalism in science, loss of the sacred, and social mass- mindedness). We will explore how this concept might also be relevant to addressing contemporary environmental and polit- ical issues.

Friday 12th NOV 2020     ECOPSYCHOLOGY

Mary-Jayne Rust, Jungian Analyst, Lecturer, 

Art Therapist, Workshop Facilitator

Ecopsychology is an emerging field weaving together the eco-logical, psychological, political and spiritual. My interest in eating problems expanded into an inquiry into our collective con-suming of the earth, and the relationship between mind and body, soul and the land. I became fascinated by the differences between indigenous and western world views and how we might enable ancient and modern to live together today.

Friday 19th FEB 2021 

EMODIED ACTIVE IMAGINATION:

PORTAL TO THE SOUL

Heba Zaphiriou-Zarifi,

Jungian Analyst, IGAP

This will be a Weaving in of Jungian Psychology with Authentic Movement, which is rooted in Jung’s Active Imagination. Clinical work will be included, regarding Trauma and the Body (the per- sonal and the collective body). Trauma in the body is also a mir- ror reflection of the way we traumatise our planet Earth, and the depletion of her resources is a destruction of our immune system.

Friday 19th March 2021 (or April TBA) 

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).

MYTHICAL BEASTS: Imagination in Dreams 

& Transformation Through the Imaginal, Healing Alchemy of Nature

Philippa Campbell, Jungian Analyst, IGAP

Image from: 

The image of the labyrinth gives us a path to follow when complexes are activated, when the dream offers guidance and when the imagination heals. It is a left handed path that leads through helplessness towards knowledge. It is also a path where love threads it’s way beside us, Ariadne’s clue as we shall see is fundamental to the process. 

With the help of the Myth of the Labyrinth this talk will explore our journeying from helplessness to hopefulness.

As Jung has written:

 

      Without such a vision ( the Liverpool 

      dream ) I might perhaps have lost my
      orientation and been compelled to abandon 

      my understanding. But here the meaning

      had been made clear. When I parted from

      Freud, I knew I was plunging into the 

      unknown. Beyond Freud, after all, I knew

      nothing; but I had taken the step into 

      darkness. When that happens, and then 

      such a dream comes, one feels it is an act

      of grace ( Jung CW9, p. 199).

Friday 18th JUNE 2021

LILITH: CULTURE and DIVERSITY

Edna Babay Shahaf,

Jungian Analyst, IGAP

Educator

Eric Neumann has famously written about the "fear of the feminine"' But "fear of" is not something usually associated with the feminine, which has been and still is regarded as inferior and lacking authority in most cultures.

Masculine spirit, and its capacity to order and rule, has been the highest value: "the devaluation of the feminine is to be understood as an attempt at overcoming the fear of the feminine and its dangerous aspect as the Great Mother and as anima"... (Neumann, The Fear of the Feminine", Princeton 1994). The Figure of Lilth tells the story of what happened to the devalued Feminine in its exile: of its suffering, its rage and its come back, with all the terrible consequences associated with it.

The Speaker will aim to reflect on the significance of the figure of Lilith and the "fear of the feminine" with regards to both current collective trends and patients in their clinical analytical practice.

WORKSHOP - SATURDAY - 05 SEPT 2020 Changed

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.

SATURDAY WORKSHOP

15 OR 22 0R 29 MAY (TBA)

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.
