Are Dreams an Antidote to the Pathology of a Shallow Modern World?

Burnout, depression, loneliness, meaninglessness, disorientation, aggression, contempt, lies and deception are haunting humanity.

The Jungian approach of the psyche through dreams and the importance of a caring therapeutical relationship are mirrored in modern science of the ‘social brain’.

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

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.

The Erotic Countertransference: An Aspect of Relationally Attuned Identification or Conduit to the Infantile/Erotic? A Case Illustration

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.

Several psychoanalytic viewpoints – including Jung’s – will be considered.

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

Eros and Psyche: A Relational Perspective on the Journey towards Love

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.

The Self ... Our Best Friend and Our Worst Enemy

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.

The Roots of Chinese Traditional Medicine in the I Ching

Its eight main trigrams with their manifold associations change in three specific ways or cycles allowing precise observations in psychosomatic illnesses, dreams, attitudes, etc. The I Ching and Chinese medicine can complement one another for the benefit of patients.

Explorations into the Nature of Meaning

The word “meaning” is often bandied about, and is an important notion in Jung’s analytical psychology. But what do we mean by it; what is its nature?

The first in a series under this title, this lecture focuses on the understanding of meaning, and the phenomenon of meaning-making, in several cultures and religious traditions. Future offerings under this title will explore meaning and its making through archetypal and neuro-scientific lenses.

Imagination: The Creativity of Soul

We possess within us a sublime force of immeasurable power, which when handled unconsciously is often detrimental to us. If on the contrary we direct it in a conscious and creative manner, it gives us the mastery of ourselves. Sadly, the vast majority do not fully understand the creative role it plays in everyone’s life. The force of which I speak is the power of our imagination – the creative spark within us, which I refer to as the seeing power of soul.

This lecture will look at the ancient and universal traditions regarding the true nature of dreams, which has lost favour with modern man. This view holds that dreams are of divine origin – they are a vital part of life, essential, and a key element in one’s spiritual growth.

Furthermore, this lecture will aim to bring to light historical and contemporary material that will help place spiritual dreaming in its rightful place at the center of the whole subject of dreams.
