November 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Unity Church of Portland, 4525 SE Stark
Portland, OR 97202 United States

$20.00

In this historical moment we unconsciously live out the reality of a split between the psyche (personal) and the sociopolitical world. Emotional suffering is located in the individual and his/her relationships. The social context is rarely acknowledged as major contribution to our psychological health as it is seen as a backdrop. Within such a perspective, we lose the opportunity to create and use the potential space in cultural life for engaging and processing the most pressing problems of our times:…

Turning Ghosts into Ancestors through Phantom Narratives

November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Unity Church of Portland, 4525 SE Stark

$110.00

Intergenerational traumas are living memories that express and perpetuate themselves through group unconscious story formation i.e., phantom narratives. They offer us an opportunity to acknowledge, engage, and mourn the unresolved. Specifically, the unprocessed violence, both of the past and as it appears in present day sociopolitical processes. The psychological work of transforming ghosts that haunt our current lives into ancestors (helpful presences) will be our focus for this workshop.

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. In this workshop, we will explore the psychological, spiritual, and emotional characteristics of each of the seven chakras that are located along the astral spine as we view images of their expressions in sandplay. Along with this, we will…

How to Love a Narcissist

January 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$20.00

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…

The Myth of Narcissus

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…
