April 19-20, 1985: Russell Lockhart

Lecture and Workshop: In this lecture with slides, Dr. Lockhart will explore the nature of the new dominant arising from the chaos of a world losing its way. This new dominant was hinted at in Jung’s image of “the coming guest”.

There will be further exploration of the “coming guest” who must be welcomed in a spirit of Eros and will be sensed first in the imaginal realms that are the source of art and poetry. Welcoming the guest requires a “revisioning” of the Jungian approach to art and begins with a re-analysis if Jung’s initial experiences with the anima and a reworking of a crucial image that Jung carved in his wall at Bollingen. This image holds an intution of a major dynamic in the transition from the Piscean “Age of Tradition” to the Aquarian “Voice of Psyche”. Prepatory reading; “Confrontation with the Unconscious,” Chapter VI, pp. 170-199, of C.G. Jung’s autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections.


Russell A. Lockhart is a practicing Jungian analyst, research clinician, and former Director of Training at the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. He has a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Southern California and was research director of the Department of Psychology at UCLA.
