  Nobody can afford to look around and to wait for somebody else to do what he is loath to do himself. But since nobody seems to know what to do, it might be worthwhile for each of us to ask himself whether by any chance his or her unconscious may know something that will help us. - C.G. Jung (CW 18, par. 599)   Human caused climate change has placed life on the planet in a precarious state. It…

Mandala symbols appear very frequently in moments of psychic disorientation as compensatory ordering factors. - C.G. Jung (CW 3, par. 582)   Jung identified the mandala as an archetypal image of wholeness. In this workshop we explore the manifold forms of mandalas, West and East, and how they can help us heal our split with the natural world. Mandalas make the invisible visible and are portals into deep psychic experiences. We discuss how mandalas provide a bridge between the macrocosm…

In 1913 Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung embarked on a remarkable inner journey.  Devotedly attending to his dreams and fantasies, for the next fifteen years Jung exquisitely calligraphed and painted the emotions and images he found within.  This record of his venture was published in 2009 in his superbly illustrated Red Book. As he focused inside, Jung was immediately inundated with inward scenes of global catastrophe—at a time when Europe spoke only of peace and prosperity.  In less than a year,…

Why fairy tales - Märchen?  When C.G. Jung discovered the archetypal realm of the collective unconscious, he also found that through the ages myths, fairy tales and legends provided a “clothing” so to speak for these, otherwise invisible, potentially healing psychodynamics. When we listen to fairy tales our soul is invited to journey into lands of horror and violences well as enchanting rescues and romances. The original fairy tales are ever so much more grim and violent than the Walt…

Fantastic journeys, heroic deeds and helpful animals are among the archetypal topics we will work and play with during the workshop. Jungian analysts have learned that attending to fairy tales can reconnect us to levels of our psyche where through the transcending function of symbols, insight, growth and healing can take place. Fairy tales belong in our inner nursery fostering active involvement with fantasy and creativity. Anyone dealing with the child inside one’s soul or without as parent or professional…

Dream Diver, by Naomi Brodner

When a dream is forgotten, dismissed, ignored or called names ("worthless, a snippet, stupid, etc."), important information is lost.  A discussion with clinical examples will explore what many miss:  the quiet beginnings of consciousness evidenced in what is often overlooked.  The beginning of a process is sacred ground to stand upon.  Alchemical parallels, world dreams, fairy tale imagery and elements of dreaming that are routinely misunderstood will be discussed as well.

There are a few curious dreams that many people have:  loosing teeth, being in public without clothes, taking a college final without having gone to class, among others.  This seminar will explore what these dreams mean if we omit the ubiquitous response, "Oh, that's just an anxiety dream."  The dreams present information that corrects/compensates/confronts the world or culture rather than the individual; just what are these dreams telling us about our culture, our world?  Working in groups participants will be…
