The Story of Carl Gustav Jung
Workshop: There is a Navaho saying, “to name something is to become”. It speaks of a longing and the possibility for each of us to be fully who we are. It speaks of a relationship to creation and to creator. It speaks of the need to be remembered in a very deep and mysterious way.
Together we will explore naming though dialoguing with a variety of texts, journaling, use of myth and fairy tale, movement and ritual.

In Honor of Naming
Workshop: Music can reach into the very core of ourselves and resonate with it. It facilitates the freeing of the imagination, the phenomenon of the inner world. In coming to experience this inner world, we obtain access to our visions and inspirations. Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) is a transformative process which involves listening to classical music in a relaxed state to facilitate self-understanding, healing and growth, recall forgotten memories, provoke adventures, stimulate creativity, and often provide spiritual insight. Come prepared to explore the mysteries of your internal image world as evoked by music. Bring a box of oil pastels and a blanket or sleeping bag to lie on.
Laurie S. Weiner is a psychotherapist in private practive who most recently has been specializing in the GIM process with individuals and groups.
The Inner Journey: Guided Imagery and Music
“If thou woulds complete the diamond body with no outflowing,
Diligently heat the roots of consciousness and life,
Kindle light in the blessed country ever close at hand,
And there hidden, let thy true self always dwell.”
Thui Ming Ching as quoted by Jung in The Golden Flower
This will be an introduction to the world of “Chanyou”, the Japanese Tea Ceremony, “Cha-Do”, the Way of Tea. It is a way of philosophy and practice. The basic principle is the spirit of self-training and mutual respect. The quaternity of Tea includes “Wa” (Harmony), “Kei” (Respect), “Sei” (Purity), Joku (Tranquility).
Japanese Tea Ceremony
An examination of the many languages of dreams as they give us vocation, warnings, fortelling of death, changes in the eras of our life, illness, new possiblities latent within us.
We will also examine the ways in which dreams may be amplified and drawn into consciousness.
Workshop: Dionysys, the Forgotten God
In the space between the Feeling Function and the Sensation Function lies a vacant realm for most Westerners. Shunned by our cultural patterns, in embarrassment, intrigue, fright, this realm call us by its ecstatic energy-filled fascination. It is the place of Dionysys, the Forgotten God, the last to be enthroned in Greek Mythology, the first to be lost when we dismantled the Greek Pantheon. Our lecture will attempt to restore some fo the dignity and power to this vacant realm in our psychology.
Robert Johnson was educated at Oregon State university and the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. He has recently returned from one of his many trips to India where he has been exploring the great Indian myths and legends which are having such an impact on our present society. He is the author of three books: He; She; and We. He is in private practice in San Diego and has been a frequent speaker for Oregon Friends of Jung.
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.

Lecture: Dance/Movement and the Underworld Trinity: Feminine, Body, Shadow
‘I move,’ is the clear knowledge that I personally, am moving. The opposite of this is the sudden and astonishing moment when ‘I am moved.’ It is a moment when the ego gives up control, stops exerting demands, allowing the Self to take over moving the physical body as it will. It is a moment of unpremeditated surrender that cannot be explained, replicated exactly, sought for or tried out.
Mary Starks Whitehouse
This one day workshop will introduce an approach to movement that was originally developed by Mary Whitehouse. Sometimes called “authentic movement” or “movement in depth,” it involved a mover, a witness, and their relationship. We’ll take up the development of this work an its use as a form of active imagination. Morning and afternoon sessions will include lecture, movement experience and discussion. No prior dance training or movement therapy is required or expected.
If possible, read in advance; “Dance/Movement and Body Experience in Analysis”, a chapter by Joan Chodorow in Jungian Analysis, edited by Murray Stein. La Salle: Open Court Publishing Co., 1982.
