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.

Kate Burns, The Red Book: Initiation and the Soul’s Desire 1/1
Oct 10 @ 13:00 – Oct 11 @ 16:45

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. His soul spoke a language particular to an archaic pattern of initiation evident in age old shamanic practices. 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.
