Satan and Psyche
February 17, 1990 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm PST
The workshop will explore the images of evil and the satanic from both an historical and depth psychological perspective. Drawing on materials from the Bible, the medieval witchcraft period, the legends and lore of the devil, as well as contemporary film and literature, an examination will be made of the primary characteristics of images and patterns of the Satanic. Attention will then be directed to contemporary analytic therapy and the ways in which similar images and patterns are revealed in the unconscious material of analytic patients. In what ways is the devil an inevitable and necessary presence in the process of transformation? What response is called for when the individual encounters the dark powers of the shadow?
