$20.00

As we participate in spiritual practices and inner creative work, kundalini energy may rise up the chakras located in the astral spine and awaken us spiritually. When this happens in a contained environment, it slowly merges the north and south poles of our being (feminine and masculine, negative and positive) and creates a greater wholeness in our well-being. In this presentation , we will focus on the meaning of kundalini, its images in creative expressions as in sandplay, and how…

The theory of the chakras comes from the Sanskrit tradition of India and the ancient science of kundalini yoga. When participating in meditation, yoga, and other forms of spiritual practices, kundalini often rises up the astral spine and awakens us spiritually.

Along with this, we will…

We explore Jung’s concepts of narcissism and its appearance in the ‘as-if’ personality who struggles to connect to self and others. Intimacy is compromised, wanted yet feared. Although the person appears enticing and confident, the inner life is marked by perfectionism, emotional distance and dissociation. Through dreams and composite people examples, we explore why these people are in our lives and where in our psyche we are in the throes of narcissism rather than self-love. We will consider unfinished areas…

We first explore the make-up of the puella/puer, that archetype of perennial youth prevalent in the Western world. The intense energy and appeal of the puella/puer often masks a more fragile personality, unrealistic, fantasy driven, easily dissembled, immature and untouched. This person lives an ‘as-if’ life, blocked by a persona adaptation from accessing basic instincts. Jungian psychology is founded on the recognition that the splits in the psyche face us with questions of how we relate to otherness both within…

In the West, attention to spiritual and mental life originally was subsumed under the Care of Souls, like one full river of religious and psychological currents blended indistinguishably. The soul was tended under care of spiritual mentors within or pushing the boundaries of traditional religions. In the early 20th century, the river forked into two and depth psychology emerged as a separate discipline unfolding since in the proliferating schools of psychoanalysis. We will explore psyche, soul, spirit and the subversive…

In the early 20th century both Freud and Jung noted that projections of our deep emotions of fear and desire, our wishes for nurturance and ambitions for power ceased to be directed to the heavens and the God of various religious traditions. That human striving and loving fell out of the heavens. Where did all that energy go?  Freud saw this as liberation from religious tradition and its restrictive thinking. What we need is "secular ministers of the soul" (Bettleheim…

“If people would only take the trouble to turn up the actual writings of the ancient alchemists, they would find a deep treasure-trove of wisdom, much of which is perfectly applicable to the very events which are happening in the world today.” -- C.G. Jung (1960) Alchemical Ecopsychology recognizes the deep, subtle interconnectedness of psyche and matter by combining the sacred, psychological practices of alchemy with the discipline of ecopsychology. Through the union of these two subjects, one ancient the…

“I am interested in the advances of modern physics, which is coming ever closer to the nature of the psyche, as I have seen for a long time. … The strange cases of parallelism in time, which are commonly called coincidences but which I call synchronistic phenomena, are very frequent in observations of the unconscious.”  — C.G. Jung Letters I, 1934, pp. 176-178 Jung had a deep interest in how modern science related to his explorations of psyche. He worked…
