Marco Della Chiesa, The man C.G. Jung: His life, His work 1/1
Feb 28 @ 16:00 – 17:45

During this first lecture of Basic Jung we will try to get to know the great Zurich Psychologist. Who was C.G. Jung? What course did his life take? What are the turning points and stations in his life? Which people, men and women, played important roles in Jung’s life and how did these encounters influence his work? We will embark on a journey of Jung’s life and work, illustrated with pictures and texts.

Nancy Krieger, Ego, Complexes, Archetypes and Other Friends: Jung’s Structure of the Psyche 1/1
Mar 1 @ 19:00 – 20:45

The interplay between the various elements of the psyche is the theoretical basis upon which Jung built his theories. Modern research in neuroscience and complexity theory have, in my opinion, gone a long way in substantiating his original ideas. We will be looking at his theories concerning the structure of the psyche; the division into ego, complexes and archetypes and their roots in the body and the unconscious in relation to current scientific findings.

Urs H. Mehlin, Archetypes and Their Influence on Our Lives 1/1
Mar 2 @ 16:00 – 17:45

With the term “Archetype” Jungian Psychology defines structuring abstract forces which manifest themselves individually as well as collectively in their impact on human development from birth over growing and ripening until death. They appear in experiences and representations as “archetypal images” in myths and religions; and their power and inevitability sets limits to our “free will”.

Brigitte Egger, The Symbol in Analytical Psychology: A Vivifying Experience 1/1
Mar 2 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Understood as an image that represents much more than its mere concrete form, the symbol opens a window onto the very roots of the world. It can be experienced as a revelation, but also used as a translation key. If becoming possessed by a symbol imprisons us, then entering into dialogue with it liberates energy. Thus the symbolic equation is to depth psychology what the mathematical equation is to the natural sciences. It allows powerful analysis and forges deeply attuned solutions. To adopt a symbolic attitude is a truly vivifying experience.

Murray Stein, Individuation Process 1/1
Mar 3 @ 16:00 – 17:45

The theme of individuation sounds through Jung’s writings like a leitmotif, from the time of his break with Freud and Freudian psychoanalysis without pause to his death. All things considered, individuation is perhaps Jung’s major psychological idea, a sort of backbone for the rest of the corpus. In this lecture, I will discuss the major stages of this process and consider it as a lifelong developmental project.

Diane Cousineau Brutsche, Thresholds in the Evening of Life 1/1
Mar 3 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Commenting on the typical psychological needs, which correspond respectively to the first and second half of life, Jung talks about a “psychology of the morning and of the afternoon of life.” Deep inner transformations are demanded to face the threshold and to enter creatively into the new phase of life. Another kind of shift imposes itself upon the psyche when one reaches the “evening of life”. One finds oneself once more on the brink as the psyche encounters new challenges. It is this crucial period of transformation, which will be addressed in this lecture.
