Integrity: The Dynamic Coming Together of Our Complexes – Seminar I

February 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

What is it that grabs and compels us unexpectedly, causing us to think and act in ways that don’t fit with how we see ourselves or how we want to be?

How can we deal with these impulses and obsessions, and how can we find a way to relate to them rather than trying in vain to shut them out?

How can this energy become a source of creative revitalization and enrichment for our lives going forward?

In this seminar, Bonnie McLean and Mark Girard will take turns exploring Jung’s discovery and understanding of autonomous complexes. We will consider his use of the association experiment, the components of complexes, their clues in images, dreams, sensations, thoughts, behaviors and relationships. Through play and discussion, we will look at the value of integrating these split off parts and how to nurture this individuation process.
