Monika Wikman Refining the Inner Bullshit Detector

2020-08-14T23:26:46+00:00

LECTURE: We will look into the mythic patterns of Hermes, hubris and humor that reveal various ways for us humans to get along with the god of insight whose light shines along our paths of individuation. The psyche’s inexhaustible sense of humor about the shit we are in lightens the load, literally—what we suffer, “carry from below,” can become riddled with light via the humor Hermes inspires when we are agile enough to take in new perspectives about our predicaments we face daily. These predicaments psychologically involve our one-sidedness, our unknown shadow sides, our lack of development, our blind and deaf [...]

Ann Ulanov Aliveness/Deadness/Regeneration

2020-08-14T23:26:53+00:00

WORKSHOP:  To feel alive and not dead is as basic as our need for food, air, and water. Fear of this lies at the root of illness.

Ann Ulanov Aliveness/Deadness

2020-08-14T23:27:02+00:00

LECTURE: In the opening years of our new century and under the shadow of terrorist attacks on American soil, these following questions have become urgent: What makes for our sense of aliveness and feeling real? What puts us in touch with our own voice? What confers a sense of finding and creating a path that is true for us? What kills it, making us feel deadness? The focus of this lecture will examine the space of aliveness, which is created between persons, between analysand and analyst, between ego and animus/a, in worship between ritual and repetition compulsion, and in imagination between [...]

Richard Tarnas Synchronicity

2020-08-14T23:27:10+00:00

WORKSHOP: Jung’s concept of synchronicity represents one of the most strenuous efforts of the twentieth century to construct a bridge across the chasm between spirit and matter, self and world, psyche and cosmos. Synchronistic phenomena have had a unique impact in the intellectual world, having been cited by physicists as posing a major challenge to the philosophical foundations of modern science, as well as by religious scholars as holding deep implications for the contemporary psychology of religion. In this day-long seminar, Richard Tarnas summarizes the origin and history of the concept in Jung’s work, discuss the experiential dimension of synchronistic events, [...]

Richard Tarnas Our Moment in History

2020-08-14T23:28:00+00:00

LECTURE: We seem to be living at the end of an era. Old structures are cracking, the moment of creative chaos is upon us, and the drama of our age has become a great question: What new principles and structures will emerge to shape our future? So much is at stake. We are facing a threshold of fundamental collective transformation that bears a striking resemblance to what takes place on the individual level in initiatory rites of passage, in near-death experiences, in spiritual crises, and in critical stages of what Jung called the individuation process. Join Richard Tarnas as he draws [...]

Murray Stein The Reality of the Soul

2020-08-14T23:28:08+00:00

LECTURE: People have had experiences of the soul's transcendence since time immemorial. Yet we continue to wonder...What do these experiences prove? Do they offer a genuine vision of reality, or are they only products of human imagination? Are they rooted in human desire, in the wish for immortality, in projection? There are certain special moments in life, call them "openings to transcendence," when we confront a symbol and see reality as the unconscious, according to Jung, regards it all the time. In this lecture, Murray Stein invites the audience to reflect on such experiences of transcendence. These experiences can open us [...]

LECTURE: Drawing on the work of Jung, von Franz, Carotenuto, Young-Eisendrath, Harding and life experience, Martin discusses the re-discovery of feminine authority via relationship with the animus as center of inner psychic equilibrium.

Jerry Ruhl The Pursuit of Happiness

2020-08-14T23:28:43+00:00

LECTURE: What makes us happy? For the ancient Greeks, happiness was a gift of the gods. With the coming of Christianity it became a promise of the world to come. Today, we often think of happiness as a natural right, even an entitlement. We tend to look for something or someone on the outside to make us happy. This program will examine happiness from the perspectives of depth psychology, Buddhism, positive psychology, and recent neuro-affective research. Dr. Ruhl will suggest that unhappiness is rooted in anxiety which accompanies the sense of being an isolated ego (separate from others and nature as [...]

Jerry Ruhl Achieving True Contentment

2020-08-14T23:28:51+00:00

WORKSHOP: Most of us believe that we’ll somehow achieve contentment just as soon as we get a better job, find a more satisfying relationship, buy a bigger house, retire, or attain some other outer goal. Our society conditions us to think this way. With this approach to life, contentment forever eludes us. We continually banish our contentment to another time, a different place, a better circumstance. Through myths, stories, and practical exercises, this workshop will show you how to move beyond the inevitable frustrations of the ego-centered approach to life and open to a deeper, richer layer of experience. We will [...]
