Internationales Seminar für Analytische Psychologie

Chinese Medicine - Autumn 2019
When Chinese Medicine Encounters Jungian Psychology


This one-day event will present a series of interrelated lectures centering on the use of Analytical Psychology, the I Ching and Chinese medicine by Jun Xu, Jungian analyst and director of the Mercury Centre in Nanjing and Christa Robinson, training and supervising analyst at ISAP. The heart of the lectures is a seven-year case, treated both with acupuncture and Jungian methods. Chinese Medicine has a scientific, qualitative approach to man and therefore co-operates well with Jungian psychology. The complementarity of the methods will be shown in this presentation. The different perspective of the Wilhelm and the Eranos I Ching translation and their use in the analytical setting, will be presented for the first time in a western country. Combined with the Jungian approach and Chinese medicine they are a powerful tool for healing and a deep-going access to the unconscious world.

The Roots of Chinese Traditional Medicine in the I Ching
The Universal Compass of the (Eranos) I Ching presents the mandala that is the basis of the Chinese culture. Its eight main trigrams with their manifold associations change in three specific ways or cycles that allow precise observations in psychosomatic illnesses, dreams and attitudes, etc. The I Ching and Chinese medicine can complement one another for the benefit of patients.
