Jung, Frye, and William Blake: Creativity and the Unconscious 16 Sep 2022 William Blake, one of the first figures in western art and literature to have invented his own mythology, has long been appreciated by Jungian commentators and psychotherapists as an artist working in the tradition of archetypes. Jung's own relationship to the work of Blake was more complex.

Racial Legacies: Jung, Politics and Culture 18 Nov 2022 Review by Rossanna Echegoyén: LCSW, Founder and Co-Chair of the Committee for Race and Ethnicity at the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis "This is a brilliant and creative piece of work that examines raciality from an Africanist and White perspective. It is also an act of empowerment and response to Jung excising the black experience. "

'Red' Book Symphony 17 Sep 2021 A musical response to The Red Book. One of my lock down projects has been to compose RED, my 5th symphony inspired by The Red Book in concert with painting a series of 4 large canvases. Like the composer Schoneberg, I thrive on this syncreting interface.

Racial Hybridity: Jungian & Post Jungian Perspectives 18 Feb 2022 This talk explores some possible contributions analytical psychology may make to theorising racial hybridity. In particular, Lu critically reflects on his hopes, fears, and fantasies that may in turn act as springboard.
Mythology & Modern Life: Archetype of Change 18 Mar 2022 Explores the late Octavia Butler's work, who in the 1990's envisions the sort of fear that permeates contemporary culture, dominated by Covid, rising Fascism, and Climate Crisis; engendering 'end of the world' fears & fantasies, globally in society.
Inner and Outer Democracy: Healing our Polarised World 22 Apr 2022 In this lecture Dr. Kalsched will describe a totalitarian of fascistic inner 'system' of archetypal defensive powers typical of the dissociative psychology found in survivors of early trauma, and will contrast this with the more democratic conflict psychology found in more integrated individuals.
Soul of the City: When Central Park Heals New York City 20 May 2022 Discovery of the plan of Manhattan embodied in the plan of Central Park; which has huge implications for the health and welfare of the city. The journey charts Manhattan's memory of life as a Native American sacred ceremonial island called Manatus, to current day Manhattan, proposing a memorial for Manatus and her beloved Peoples. The story of Manhattan is a microcosm of the story of planet earth, and has a global message.

Hildegard Illuminations, Jung & The Red Book Friday 18th SEPT 2020 Carl Jung and Hildegard of Bingen were both powerful mystics whose connection to transpersonal forces led them to boldly embrace unconventional lives of healing and wholeness. Jung's visionary experiences in the 20th century became the basis for his celebrated Red Book from which all of his later theories on depth psychology emerged.
Synchronicity as Cultural Critique Friday 16 Oct 2020 Jung developed the concept of synchronicity as part of his critique of the cultural condition of his day, which he saw as characterised by excessive rationalism in science, loss of a sense of the sacred, and social mass-mindedness—a condition that could be aptly described in terms of Weber’s notion of disenchantment.

Memories, Dreams, Reflections: A Symphony Analysis of Composing a Symphony Friday 19th Feb 2021 Jung’s autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections is a challenging crucible in which to contextualise my love of Jung's thought, within music. I focussed on the chapter "Visions" in which Jung recounts his near-death experience from a heart attack.
The Ancestors Friday 12 Mar 2021 This talk considers 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 beyond..

Lilith: Culture and Diversity Friday, 16th Apr 2021 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.
