Lecture: Participants will have an opportunity to work with mandala imagery, while Dr. Jaqua shares slides of the forms used in her Diploma Thesis, “An Integrated View of Psychology Based on Mandala Symbolism”. Special emphasis will be given to the Tai Chi Tu design with its internal yang-yin duality and to the quaternity of Jung’s typology compass. These illustrate how mandalas manifest the symbolic meanings of unity, totality, wholeness, and completion.
Robin Jaqua has recently completed her work as diplomate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. She received her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Oregon in 1975, worked in therapy with emotionally disturbed children and their families, and in private practice before leaving for Zurich. She is in private practice in Eugene, and we welcome her as the third Jungian analyst in Oregon and the opening speaker of our fall tenth anniversary program.
