Experiential Reflections on the Transcendent Function in Our Lives
February 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Jung’s writings on the transcendent function present multiple, sometimes seemingly contradictory, impressions of the transcendent function. In this workshop we will consider how these “contradictions” may reflect the mystery within and around the transcendent function. Excerpts from Jung’s writings about the transcendent function, as well as material from Friday night’s lecture, will be used to help awaken our curiosity about and openness to the transcendent function in our lives and in our work as therapists. Drawing and collage exercises will provide visual means for exploring our relationship with the transcendent function. After the exercises, there will be time for communal sharing of impressions and reflections, and an opportunity to identify and affirm attitudes or intentions we want to carry forward from the workshop.
