Archetypal Manifestations in the Individuation Process
May 18, 2001 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
“The body is merely the visibility of the soul, the psyche; and the soul is the psychological experience of the body. So it is really one and the same thing.” (Jung, Zarathustra Seminars, p. 355.)
Individuation is a second half of life process when we consciously return to our personal unconscious and our archetypal roots. We know much about working with personal unconscious material. Jung, however, pushes deeper in his work and invites us to research and work with archetypal forces that manifest in our personal process. These experiences are often pathologized, although they have been experienced, observed and discussed since the beginning of human consciousness. This lecture will discuss the importance of recognizing, witnessing and containing these archetypal energies when they become embodied and emerge in our lives and in our analysis. Case material and video clips will help to illustrate the subject matter.
