The Nature of Psyche

What, where and when is psyche, and what is its relationship with matter and time? I will focus on Jung’s most recent thinking, especially his collaboration with Wolfgang Pauli. Consciousness per se is a relatively small, but important, aspect of Jung’s model, through which we experience not just perceptions, but phenomena such as dreams and complexes that have deeper origins. These lead us to the personal and collective unconscious, and fundamental concepts including the archetypes and their manifestations, the psychoid, the Self and the timeless unity of all that is, the unus mundus.

Dreaming and the Work of the Unconscious

Dreams give us insight into how the unconscious operates. Considering the fact that the unconscious is by definition at odds with the conscious mind, any method that aims to cooperate with the unconscious will require a high degree of diplomatic skill. By steering a course between the Scylla of science and the Charybdis of literature, Jung left us with an approach to the unconscious that is constantly updated by means of the fresh data that comes to us in the form of dreams.

The Role and Function of the Father in Analytical Psychology

It seems that, at present, there is a great deal of confusion about what fathers really need to do regarding their tasks as parents. Looking at dreams, material from the unconscious, and the abundant archetypal references as well as contemporary commentators, we will be exploring the theme of what it actually means to be a father.

Active Imagination: Via Regia to the Unconscious

Active imagination was the original, personal method adopted by Jung when he set out on his own, personal path. This method of approach to the unconscious has become the inspiration for many art psychotherapy techniques since - art, dance, music, drama, poetry.
In this lecture we shall be examining the history of and theory behind the technique in Jung’s life and time as well as more recent developments by contemporary analysts, many of whom are analysts here at ISAP.

Encountering the Shadow – Bringer of the Light

Jung held that to encounter and accept our shadow, “the thing we have no wish to be” (CW 16, §470), is fundamental to the process of individuation, to becoming whole. In this lecture we will explore the concept of the shadow as bringer of the light. We will follow the analytical journey of a young woman and examine her encounter with a striking shadow figure that appeared in her initial dream and followed her throughout. We witness the healing and opening to new creative life bestowed upon her, in part, through her courageous encounter with the shadow.

Dream On: Images of Anguish and Ecstasy from the Depths

Dreams depict our states of being, confront us with images of our massa confusa, and drive and deliver us into encounters with new possibilities beyond the control or imagination of the ego and into deeper resonance with the Self.
Examples of the dream as psychopomp, as critic and Self will be offered. Some of my older cases will be updated; some new cases will be presented and discussed with students.
Please read Jung on dreams, Robert Bosnak, von Franz, & others for their perspectives. A partial bibliography will be made available. Theory will be addressed in passing, but the focus will be on the practice of dreamwork and the development of psychology through containment and reflection.

Dialogue with Pictures

Pictures speak! They can speak to feelings, mind, body and soul. How they speak depends on our values, culture and state of mind. Some hit hard, some we hardly see. If we let them, pictures convey immediately an atmosphere. The first emotional response can be deepened by examining different aspects of pictures. The closer we look, the deeper we can be touched and surprised. Pictures brought in therapy are additional, helpful voices.

Healing the Dragon – Mercurius as a Spirit of the Earth

For the alchemists, Mercurius was a light in the darkness. He was the beginning and the end of the alchemical process, dreadful, terrifying and demonic, but also “the philosophic gold, the carbuncle ... the light of lights”. In a thus-far untranslated alchemical text from the 16th century Mercurius appears as a dragon in a fiery mountain, who must be healed of a terrible restlessness. This is done by a remedy consisting of various plants. The lecture looks at Mercurius as a restless dragon, as well as his meaning in our time. It also speaks about his healing by creating the right remedy.

With a view to history, art, and mythology, the psychology of Jung and others, the god Dionysus will be explored on both individual and collective levels.
Contemporary phenomena, as well as dreams from analysands, will illustrate the dynamisms of complexes and the archetype embodied and imagined in Dionysus. Dionysus is a trans-rational god, whose origins and history of trauma can tell us much about ourselves and our wounded relationship with instinct, feeling, and the environment.

Erich Neumann's Developmental Relational Theory

On synthesizing Neumann’s various texts, a cohesive archetypal developmental relational theory emerges. This lecture presents Neumann’s theory of the different archetypal stages of psychological development from birth, throughout life, to come to a close in the advanced stages of the individuation process. The process centers around the establishment of the ego-Self axis during early life and the primal relationship, and its central role in later psychic health. The lecture will also suggest possible therapeutic applications to child and adult analysis.

Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) – an Increasingly Frequent Diagnosis

The diagnosis ROGD has become more frequent over the past several years, especially among children and young adults. This phenomenon leaves therapists und scientists baffled and concerned. What reasons could be behind the discomfort with one’s own sex to elicit such a massive wish for transformation? Are hormones and operations the best solutions for the body? What happens to the psyche? How can we deal with these clients?

For Jung, the absence of meaning plays a crucial role in the aetiology of neurosis. “A psychoneurosis must be understood, ultimately, as the suffering of a soul which has not discovered its meaning.” CW 11, §497

The Mysterious Union of Masculine and Feminine

The mysterious union of masculine and feminine has been described as the sacred marriage, the hieros gamos, or the coniunctio. It portrays the uniting of what Jung described as “impossible” opposites, an event finding its highest value in the embrace of the divine or royal couple. Behind this sublime experience lies a dark suffering. The exiled soul longs to unite with consciousness, at times depicted as the Bride’s anguished yearning for the return of her Bridegroom. Jung called this process the “suffering of becoming conscious”. We will explore the meaning of this ineffable mystery.

Sex, Gender and the Anima-Animus Problem in Analytical Psychology

This seminar will look at the difference between sex and gender, the formation of gender identity, and the problems presented by antiquated conceptions of anima and animus. Further, the seminar will look at how psychic energy manifests in and around gender expression, and in relation to a dominant collective, religiously, culturally and psychologically, that marginalizes and demeans difference. Emphasis will be on the phenomenological experience of difference, and how difference appears in the consulting room.

Analytical Psychology and the Climate Crisis

“On no account should one imagine that the path of individuation is equivalent to the life of a psychic anchorite. Quite the contrary, for such a way is possible only when the specific worldly tasks which these individuals are confronted with are carried out in reality.” (CW 7, §369).
One of the most daunting tasks that we are confronted with at the moment is to find answers to the climate crisis. What is the task of analytical psychology in this situation? What does it mean to individuate, to become truly conscious in this threatened world? We will be seeking answers to these questions.

Analytic Methods for Working with Wounded Couples

Beginning with Jung’s 1921 article “The Therapeutic Value of Abreaction” (CW 16), this course will focus upon the inter-dynamics of early trauma within the wounded couple. How might unconscious, implicit memories shape projections and abreactions within the marriage? We will look beyond the gender-bound, binary absolutism of Jung’s animus/anima theory towards a more universal process cognizant of the complications of early trauma and the process of individuation. Emphasis will also be given to methods working analytically with couples.
