Donald Kalsched - The Abandoned Child and its Return

$14.00

LECTURE: Dr. Kalsched describes a series of dramatic moments in the psychotherapy of trauma survivors where a breakthrough occurred in the client's access to dissociated feelings. These moments usually occurred when “transitional space”—long since foreclosed by trauma—was re-opened between therapist and patient, and the psyche's mytho-poetic matrix re-potentiated. One sign of this “re-potentiation” is the vivid dreams that often occur at such moments—dreams in which a lost or abandoned “child” appears—often menaced by the psyche's oppressive powers. He shows the parallels between these dreams and those ancient myths that describe the birth and trials of the archetypal Hero—the one who always carries a dual destiny—part human, part divine.

Donald Kalsched, Ph.D. is a Jungian psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist. He is a senior faculty member and supervisor with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts, and teaches and leads workshops nationally and internationally. His book The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defenses of the Personal Spirit explores the interface between contemporary psychoanalytic theory and Jungian theory as it relates to practical clinical work with the survivors of early childhood trauma. His recent book Trauma and the Soul: A Psycho-Spiritual Approach to Human Development and its Interruption explores the mystical dimensions of clinical work with trauma-survivors.

Donald Kalsched - The Soul in Hell and its Liberation

$24.00

WORKSHOP: Trauma survivors often report that their lives are a “living Hell.” This pathological situation is created by the psyche's archetypal defenses and their depressive power over what one psychoanalyst called “the lost heart of the self,” with its desire for love and intimate relationship. Dante's Divine Comedy gives us a beautiful literary example of such a companioned descent, as Virgil and Dante descend into the nether regions in order to heal the poet's mid-life depression. Dr. Kalsched shows how depth psychotherapy in conjunction with affective neuro-science, and the findings of attachment theory and relational theory all lead toward answers of the central question posed by both the clinical and literary material, vis. how can the otherwise sealed crypt of Hell be opened and its occupants liberated?

John Martin - Complexes

$14.00

LECTURE: Martin begins with Jung’s “discovery” of the complex, and how he actually defined a complex. After looking at the structure of a complex, we will “observe” the development of a complex in the life of an individual. This consideration will disclose the basic characteristics of complexes, which will also offer us clues in recognizing and identifying a complex. We will conclude with a consideration of how we might successfully work with a complex and integrate its energy into the individuating psyche.

John Martin grew up in Gadsden, Alabama. I graduated from what is now Samford University in Birmingham. I have received the Master of Divinity degree from Louisville Baptist Seminary and the Doctor of Ministry from the Presbyterian Seminary in Louisville. I retired in 2003 after thirty-three years as minister of the First Presbyterian Church of Elizabethton, Tennessee. He had a long time association with Journey into Wholeness.

Sharon Martin - The Archetype of the Child

$14.00

LECTURE: The Child in us is that which is always becoming, the miracle of our uniqueness which wants to manifest in the world. According to Dr. Jung, unless we have a deep, conscious connection to this Child, we “forget that we have a soul; we wander aimlessly through the years; we live in a dead system.” In this lecture we will explore this numinous archetype, which Jung calls “something which does not exist through us, but through whom we exist,” for it holds the wondrous possibility and splendid hope for becoming our true selves.

Sharon Martin was born and grew up in the Deep South. She received both her bachelor's and master's degree at Emory University in the Psychosocial Nurse Practitioner program, obtaining advanced certification as Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist. This program introduced her to the exciting work of C. G. Jung. Her fascination with his deeply spiritual and scientific approach lead to her enrollment as a training candidate at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, where she received her diploma in Analytical Psychology in 2005. She began her private practice in Atlanta in 1999 and then relocated to the lowcountry of Charleston, South Carolina. In addition to her analytic practice, Sharon lectures and gives workshops on Jungian theory.
