Robert Ingram, The Remembering Song: Memory, Music, Melancholy 1/1
May 24 @ 13:00 – 16:45

An exploration of the interrelated subjects of memory, melancholy and music, and their interweaving in melancholy music. Focus: Remembering and recovering of the lost or forgotten treasures buried in the field of psyche’s depths, considering how melancholy music – valuable, yet neglected – may serve to recall what is easily forgotten, what Jung referred to as his “utmost task,” to remind humanity “that man has a soul and there is a treasure hidden in the field.” Melancholy music, the memory music of the soul, is an invaluable and much needed Remembering Song.

Thomas Arzt & Murray Stein, Jung’s Red Book for Our Time: Searching for Soul under Postmodern Conditions 1/1
May 25 @ 10:00 – 14:45

The “Postmodern Condition” is described by terms such as relativism, complexity, ambiguity and radical plurality. There is a lack of firm ground for “world view” and incredulity toward metanarratives. In contrast, C. G. Jung’s Red Book and his concept of individuation offer a framework for an “individual” narrative and guidelines for the establishment of a “personal myth.”

Doris Lier, What is a Psychological Symbol? 1/1
Sep 11 @ 19:00 – 20:45

The notion “symbol” is one of the most important key notions in Jungian Psychology. But what does Jung mean when he speaks of symbols? What does it mean to interpret myths, fairy tales and dreams in a symbolic way? What symbolical meaning can an apple, a car, a hairdo have?We will discuss these questions by using examples from the realm of imagination and everyday life.

“Soul” was previously reserved for religious and philosophical frameworks, while in the field of psychology the accepted term was “psyche.” And yet, in psychology, the word “soul” has become more and more familiar. The aim of this lecture is to shed some light on the relevance of this semantic evolution and to contribute to our understanding of soul as a vital psychological entity.

How does the soul announce itself and what does it want? Jung’s sojourn with his soul as reflected in The Red Book anticipated his subsequent life work.

This seminar will consider the particular language, abundant in The Red Book, that defines a pattern of initiation and how it manifests in dreams and other psychic events.Suggested reading:The Red Book (Liber Primus), C.

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.

Allan Guggenbühl, Archetypes in Analysis 1/1
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.

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.

Exploring the relational dynamics, including love, ambition, power, pain, shame, resentment and revenge, found in four archetypal marriages in Greek myth. We will examine how the dynamics portrayed may serve as a mirror for understanding interpersonal difficulties we encounter today.

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.

May 3 @ 15:00 – 16:45

We shall discuss what the sibling situation does to our psychic development. (Being an only child is also a sibling situation!) We shall address it as “our first socialisation”, between the siblings in regard to the child-parents relationships and what effects this has on our later life.
Ich und meine Geschwister – meine Geschwister und ich
Wir werden diskutieren, wie sich die Geschwistersituation auf unsere psychische Entwicklung auswirkt. (Einzelkind sein, ist auch eine Geschwistersituation!) Wir werden das Thema als “unsere erste Sozialisierung” diskutieren – zwischen den Geschwistern und bezogen auf die Eltern-Kinder- Beziehungen und wie dies unser späteres Leben prägt.

Patrick Zuk, Music and Analytical Psychology 1/1
May 11 @ 10:00 – 14:45

Analytical psychology has a long history of engagement with the visual arts and literature, but has concerned itself only to a limited extent with music. This pair of lectures will explore music’s potential relevance to the discipline, both in the therapeutic context and from a wider cultural perspective.
The first lecture will discuss the ways in which music can be present in the analytical encounter.
The second lecture will examine how musical cultural phenomena could be fruitfully explored from the vantage point of analytical psychology to illuminate aspects of the human predicament.

The Simpleton is the hero of many fairy tales. He also appears in classical literature and has become since a few decades a recurrent figure in cinema. It is as if the theme were particularly constellated for our time. The first part of the seminar will present archetypal patterns characteristic of simpleton stories. In the second part students will be invited to do an active imagination aiming at internalizing the different figures involved in a simpleton story and giving it a meaning in their individual psyche.

Francisco Garcia, Alchemical Process of Depression 1/1
May 17 @ 13:00 – 14:45

=== Interlude ===
Jung`s fascination with alchemical symbolism and the unconscious provides us with the tools to understand our own psychological processes. A path is opened to transform the dark night of soul into a meaningful, enlightening experience. In order to accomplish this, the ego must undergo its own death and rebirth.
