Unexpected Pieces of Our Hearts:
How Synchronicity Shapes the Stories of Our Families
October 19, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30.00 – $35.00
Presented by Robert H. Hopcke, MFT
Jung’s concept of synchronicity or meaningful chance is one of his most engaging and familiar. In his Friday evening lecture, Rob Hopcke will be presenting the four aspects of synchronistic events that make up Jung’s thoughts on this phenomena in order to place this notion within the overall context of Jung’s theories on analytical psychology. Using his own recent research on synchronistic events within family and love relationships specifically, Rob will be using these stories to show how synchronicity operates through the archetype of “family” unconsciously to create wholeness in our lives through what seems at first to us like random chance.
Robert H. Hopcke has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Berkeley, California since 1986. Along with his numerous articles and reviews published throughout the world, he is the author of the national best-seller, There Are No Accidents: Synchronicity and the Stories of Our Lives, which has been translated into over a dozen languages, most recently followed by his latest work, There are No Accidents in Love: Synchroncity and the Stories of Our Families. He has lectured and run workshops around the country on the concept of meaningful coincidence for the past two decades, has appeared on Strange Universe and The Other Side, along with numerous other TV and radio interviews on the topic, and most recently he was featured in David Strabala’s documentary film, What is Synchronicity? released two years ago.
Beyond his work in the field of synchronicity, Rob’s other writings include some now standard scholarly reference works within the field of analytical psychology, including Jung, Jungians and Homosexuality; Men’s Dreams, Men’s Healing; A Guided Tour of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung; and The Persona: Where Sacred Meets Profane, and for a number of years he taught on the faculty of the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, now Sofia University, in Palo Alto, California, in the areas of Jungian psychology, human sexuality and spiritual direction.
