Our Inner Partners – The Anima and Animus

September 20, 2008 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT


On Saturday, the workshop will focus upon two classical components of Jungian psychology, the anima and the animus, by exploring the crucial role the contra-sexual inner partner plays in both a man’s and a woman’s relationship to the archetypal feminine dimension of the human personality. We will focus on how the anima/animus functions as an unconscious “other” within the psyche and discuss how this dynamic energy might consciously be employed as a creative force within the individuation process. (Please note this workshop will have a shortened time-frame and a half-hour lunch-break. Participants are encouraged to bring brown-bag lunches.)
