John Merchant, A Clinical Discussion of the Case as Published in the Book “Forget me not – My journey through Jungian analysis – A Case Presentation” by Toni Woodward 1/1
Sep 4 @ 13:00 – 14:45

It is rare in the field of psychotherapy for a client to be so open about their experience, therapy being such a personal and intimate encounter and Toni’s account covers both the positive personal growth she experienced, as well as those things she did not like. In this presentation, the reasons Toni sought analysis will be outlined, followed by descriptions of the unfolding process and the way her transference projections revealed unresolved issues arising from her earliest developmental experiences.

Sep 5 @ 10:00 – 11:45

This presentation centres on a first session when the analyst experienced an intense erotic countertransference of almost psychotic quality reflected in a fugue state that surpassed any sense of a gradual unfolding empathy.

This paper will highlight how these perspectives informed the clinical work over a ten year period.

Sheila Cowburn, Eros and Psyche: A Relational Perspective on the Journey towards Love 1/1
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.
