Nancy Krieger, The Analytic Process 1/1
Sep 5 @ 16:00 – 17:45

This introductory course will review the analytic process looking specifically at what happens during the analytic session and a review of the techniques which will be investigated more closely in the following lectures of the Basic Jung Series for this semester; the use of fairy tales, picture interpretation, dreams, sandplay, complexes and cultural complexes.

Kathrin Asper, Why do Jungians Work With Fairy Tales? 1/1
Sep 5 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Fairy tales use the oldest language of the soul. Their themes are diverse but resemble themselves worldwide. They show us, in pictorial language, ways to deal with generally human difficulties. Using a short, well known example I will show its psychological meaning so you can use this in your own lives.

Scott William Hyder, Adult Developmental Psychology 1/4
Sep 6 @ 12:00 – 13:45

A foundation for understanding Jung’s conception of adult psychological development will be presented. Open discussion is encouraged. Please access Darryl Sharps’ free download of his book at A Jungian Lexicon and review the terms for insight and questions in advance.

Lucienne Marguerat, Dialogue with Pictures 1/1
Sep 6 @ 16:00 – 17:45

Pictures affect us variously; they can speak to feelings, mind, body and soul. Our very first reactions, which happen mostly in our body and are not always easy to get hold of, give us precious signals about our emotional resonance. Pictures to which we react particularly strongly touch a soft spot within us called a complex. This first ‘hit’ may initiate a psychic process leading to however subtle changes within us. The symbolic radiance of a picture need not be a ‘black box’, but can be looked upon more closely following an approach of single aspects, such as the spatial composition, the dynamics of lines, the choice of colors, the perspective, the proportions and the numbers. Pictures speak to us !

Urs H. Mehlin, Dreams: A Pathway to our Unconscious 1/1
Sep 6 @ 19:00 – 20:45

According to C.G. Jung, a dream “leads straight to the deepest personal secrets and is, therefore, an invaluable instrument in the hand of the physician and educator of the soul.” (CW7 §25) We will, starting from considerations about the function and the patterns of sleep, look at personal, symbolic and archetypal elements of dreams and at principles of dream- interpretation: context, associations and amplification.

Isabelle Meier, “Do I have a complex?” 1/1
Sep 7 @ 16:00 – 17:45

Complexes play an important role in analytical psychology.
In everyday language we use the inferiority and authority complex, the father and the mother complex. Sigmund Freud spoke of the Oedipus complex. But what is meant by this? Complexes narrow our perceptions, feelings and thoughts and control our behavior. In this course, you will learn how complexes arise, what they affect, and how we can deal with them.
=== Basic Jung ===

Ursula Ulmer, Is this a Complex? 1/1
Sep 7 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Using what we know about personal complexes, can we see where they may be active in groups? Looking at the Swiss and their ways of dealing with the Röstigraben (the imagined line of demarcation between the French and German Swiss), we can understand more about how they relate to each other. From this it becomes clear that a person’s cultural background, the society in which he or she grew up, plays an important role in the analytical process, particularly when analyst and client come from different cultural backgrounds.
=== Basic Jung ===

Irene Berkenbusch-Erbe, Sandplay Therapy with Adults 1/1
Sep 8 @ 16:00 – 17:45

Sandplay is an activity that integrates play with sand, and choice and inclusion of miniature objects. It is a means of activating fantasy and embodying it through expressive means. The sandbox is used as an empty sheet of paper, as projection surface. Therefore it suits very well as an instrument to find an access to the deeper layers of the unconscious. Sandplay is based on the Analytical Psychology of C.G.Jung and was further developed by Dora Kalff (1904 -1990).

Joanne Wieland-Burston, C. G. Jung: A Prophet in his Own Country? 1/1
Sep 8 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Jung’s work is not unknown in his own country. Quite a number of Jungian concepts have become part of our everyday culture: the terms introverted and extraverted, also the use of Jung’s typology in the business world’s personality tests. Then there is the once widespread use of the lie detector in criminology. Even the idea of the archetype is known in certain circles. However, their source in Jung’s work is generally unknown.
In this lecture I will explain these terms – what they mean for people today and what Jung meant by them.
=== Basic Jung ===

Caroline Mackenzie, Christa and Female Individuation 1/1
Sep 12 @ 12:00 – 13:45

Drawing on embodiments of the Divine Feminine in Hinduism and using art, we will explore how the archetype of Christ can give form to the Self of a woman.
