Relationships: The Psychodynamics of Self and Other
January 21, 2000 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST
The relationship between Self and Other carries always the imprint of first relationships. In any present relationship we are inevitably inmeshed in the psychological mechanisms of projection and transference of the primal, intrapsychic imago of relationship. This lecture will explore the mechanisms of the projection/transference dynamics, “the Eden project”, which our hidden agenda embodies, and the search for the Magical Other.
