We look at paintings and try to answer questions such as: What is special about archetypal images? What is the impact of archetypal motifs – father, mother, child, hero, anima, witch, wise old man – on us psychologically? We finally examine why we need archetypal images and what Jung meant when he said: “Without a doubt, archetypal images determine our fate”.
=== Basic Jung ===

Maria Anna Bernasconi, Showing the Divine: Materialisation and Spiritualisation in Various Religions 1/1
Feb 27 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Many religions symbolize the divine through sacred images. They also invoke divine presence with sound, music, scent and ritual movement. There is a danger, however, that the material manifestations of the divine are taken as the Ultimate itself. Jungian psychology maintains a clear distinction between archetypal image and archetype per se. Examples will be given to show how this may be applied to various religious traditions.

Mar 1 @ 19:00 – 20:45

The notion of archetype helps us to better understand the wide range of psychological patterns, which express themselves in the lives of our patients.

Nancy Krieger & Isabelle Meier, WAE From the Inside 1/1
Mar 6 @ 17:00 – 18:45

Susan Schwartz, The Blank Mother 1/1
Apr 10 @ 13:00 – 14:45

Jung’s essay on the Mother Archetype is juxtaposed with the theory developed in the book The Dead Mother from French psychoanalyst Andre Green. Both Jung and Green describe attachment situations where the psyche becomes narrowed and fragmented, affecting experiences of self and other, connection and individuation.
The presentation illustrates some of the emotionally complex and internally deadening space that can transfer from a mother to her child.

Susan Schwartz, The Father Absent to His Daughter 1/1
Apr 11 @ 13:00 – 14:45

Jung coined the term father complex and described it as feeling toned and shaped by the experiences with the personal father. When too powerful, one disappears into the complex. The “father imago” that lives within leaves no space to attach, just a gap and emptiness.
A daughter with an absent father learns to be inhibited, with her emotional development arrested, and adulthood feigned rather than realized, without a sense of identity or authority. With clinical examples and dreams.

Sep 6 @ 10:00 – 11:45

The Myth of Eros and Psyche is explored from a Jungian perspective through the lens of the psychological dilemmas the motifs represent in the psyche in a shifting patriarchal paradigm and its impact on relationships. The Eros/Psyche constellation will be viewed as the archetypal relatedness between men and women called along the soul’s journey from narcissism to mature Love. Overcoming powerful complexes and transcending narcissism are features of the soul initiated by Love.

Sheila Cowburn, The Self … Our Best Friend and Our Worst Enemy 1/1
Sep 7 @ 10:00 – 11:45

This lecture explores the vicissitudes of the relationship between the ego and the archetypal Self and how that connection develops during life and within an analysis. Often our deepest fear is taking the path that demands leaving behind what is too small for us. I explore the lived experience of the ego-Self relationship as it unfolds by traversing significant Jungian concepts – Ego, Archetype, Individuation and the Transcendent Function, concluding with comments on the human aspects of Love and Darkness.

Francisco Garcia, Imagination: The Creativity of Soul 1/1
Oct 10 @ 10:00 – 11:45

We possess within us a sublime force of immeasurablepower, which when handled unconsciously is oftendetrimental to us. If on the contrary we direct it in a consciousand creative manner, it gives us the mastery of ourselves.Sadly, the vast majority do not fully understand the creativerole it plays in everyone’s life. The force of which I speak isthe power of our imagination – the creative spark within us,which I refer to as the seeing power of soul.
