The Archetype of the Foreigner – Feared or Embraced?

December 2, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

The immigration crisis points to burning humanitarian issues. Foreigners, walls, outsiders and disturbing changes are accompanying the powerful emergence of the archetype of the Foreigner in our nation, as well as globally. How are we to understand the constellation of the foreigner in our midst? To paraphrase C.G. Jung: what we don’t make conscious we will inevitably and tragically meet outside as fate. How does this apply now?

We will explore the archetype of the Foreigner on the objective as well as the subjective levels. When do we roll out the welcome mat and when do we bar the doors, culturally as well as inner-psychically? A wide selection of images will guide us in our exploration of the topic.

Jutta von Buchholtz, PhD is a senior Jungian analyst, whose academic background is a Ph.D. in medieval literature from Vanderbilt University. She thinks this lends itself beautifully for a Jungian approach to fairy tales. She finds it deeply moving how archetypal themes, so cleverly and movingly embodied in fairy tales, continue to play themselves out in our daily lives in the twenty first century – they bind and contain our common humanity. As part of her midlife crisis she received her diploma from the C.G. Jung Institute Z├╝rich. Jutta is a Senior analyst involved in training future Jungian analysts in the New Orleans and Atlanta/ Memphis seminars. She sees clients in Birmingham, Al.
