In this presentation\, I will share footage of traditional dances placing participants in ritual peril as a means to enlarge the psychic capacity of participants and revitalize the shared meanings and resources of their group. We will then look to modern dance works in which these same purposes may be reemerging. Specifically\, we will explore the element of danger in the phenomenon of site-specific dance and movement forms which may be serving to confront collective risk-aversion with the necessity of uncertainty to true aliveness. \nSuzanne Ecker\, B.C.-D.M.T.\, M.F.T.\, is a dance/movement therapist and Jungian analyst practicing in West Los Angeles. She has supervised and taught in the fields of movement therapy and depth psychology for many years. \nThis course is part of a series: Jung and Art URL:https://junginla.org/event/the-dangerous-dance-of-renewal-2021/ LOCATION:C.G.

In this experiential seminar\, Dr. Scruggs will present a myth\, utilizing a method which integrates storytelling and drumming as a means of inviting an internal exploration of both archetypal and personal material in the service of developing social and emotional learning (SEL).  The exploration and use of myth in the context of psychotherapy will be discussed both as a form of containment and structure for unconscious material\, as well as presenting ways of dealing with emotional issues symbolically.\nLearning Objectives: \n\nDiscuss how myth increases Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) awareness;\nDescribe how myth increases capacity for self-reflection and self-discovery;\nGive an example of using myth to reframe and deepen experience.\n\nKwame Scruggs\, Ph.D. is the founder and director of Alchemy\, Inc.\, a non-profit organization in Akron\, Ohio which uses the sharing and analysis of myth to transform the lives of urban youth. He holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. He speaks nationally and internationally on using myth to engage youth\, create community\, stimulate dialogue\, and inspire life-changing moments. \n  URL:https://junginla.org/event/edith-sullwold-memorial-lecture-2021/ LOCATION:Zoom Meeting – Link will be emailed to participants.

We will compare traditional religious views of evil with psychological approaches. Drawing from both psychoanalytic and Jungian perspectives\, we will examine some of the developmental factors which predispose an individual towards evil. Our discussion will include Jung’s notion of the dark side of the Self\, or archetypal evil\, and its relationship to the personal shadow. \nThe presenter suggests reading “Understanding Evil.” \nDr. Lionel Corbett trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian Analyst at the C.G.

History is both an interpretation and tied to the particular; art\, in turn\, speaks to the timeless\, universal movements of history and embodies the permutations of the human animal. These three portraits in poetry will serve as the springboard for our conversation: T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock\,” Jon Stallworthy’s “Letter from Berlin\,” and Sharon Olds’s “I Go Back to May\, 1937.” By witnessing the struggles of others\, we gain pointers\, insights\, even strategies to address our own difficulties. In this workshop\, we will examine three reports from the trenches\, the never-ending wins and losses in the battle to survive\, even make sense of one’s life. \nJames Hollis\, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst in Washington\, DC and author of seventeen books translated into twenty languages.\nPlease click on the following links to access the letters: \nhttps://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/44212/the-love-song-of-j-alfred-prufrock \nhttps://poetryarchive.org/poem/letter-from-berlin/ \nhttps://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/47057/i-go-back-to-may-1937 \n  \n  URL:https://junginla.org/event/jhollis-2021/ LOCATION:Zoom Meeting – Link will be emailed to participants.

This exhibition (October 12\, 2018-April 23\, 2019) became the Guggenheim New York’s most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago. \nIn addition to the incredible visual quality of her art\, af Klint impels the viewer to consider concepts and states similar to Jung’s (1875-1961)creative expressions\, both through his visual works and writings. Through their prolific output\, af Klint and Jung each reveal their personal encounters with an invisible “other” and explore the multi-dimensional. This presentation will review Hilma a Klint’s life experiences and creative achievement\, then explore the parallels with those of Jung and Jungian psychology. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nDescribe what is meant by the term androgyne as described by Jung;\nGive an example of how the archetype of the androgyne can create psychological conflict and ways of addressing this in treatment.\n\nMarybeth Carter\, Ph.D.\, is a clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst. She has a special interest in the creative arts\, transcendent states\, and the process of individuation. She has also had an extensive career in nonprofit leadership and has published often in the victim and trauma services field.

A purely clinical approach is of limited help\, because there are many forms of suffering which are normal given the circumstances of the person’s life. People suffer in unique ways and require a personalized approach. Traditional religions all offer explanations for suffering and the reasons for it\, and we will consider some of these\, but depth psychology has its own unique approaches. Jung believed that the discovery of meaning in suffering is crucial\, and this talk will describe some of the ways in which we may search for such meaning. We will discuss suffering as an experience of liminality and initiation into a new level of consciousness\, using as an example a depth psychological exploration of the Book of Job. We will also consider an approach to suffering based on radical acceptance. \nThe presenter suggests reading \nhttps://junginla.org/product/soul-in-anguish/ \n. \nDr. Lionel Corbett trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian Analyst at the C.G.

Rap is ubiquitous around the world\, provides a unifying function and carries a spirit of global awareness. Rap can be seen as contemporary ‘liturgical’ music. \nPamela Power\, Ph.D.\, is a clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst with a private practice in Santa Monica. She is a past Clinic Director and past Training Director at the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles.

Lacourt\, M.S.\, L.P.C.\, N.C.C.\, Ph.D.\nThis presentation will review how some of Jung’s ideas (mis)represented Native cultures. The notion of the “primitive\,” participation mystique\, dreams\, and animals will be explored. Two psychic paradigms\, dominion\, and reciprocity\, will point to important differences between Indigenous and Western cosmologies and may offer a path away from our current trend toward self-destruction. \nJeanne A.

A depth psychological approach to this late-life identity crisis requires a turn within and the tools to break through denial\, attune to the soul’s longings\, and explore meaning beyond doing. If we complete the rite of passage\, we find renewal in an identity beyond role. Shifting our identities from role to soul\, we release the heroic ego’s strivings and become who we truly are\, perhaps for the first time. \n \nThe Inner Work of Age\nby Connie Zweig\, Ph.D.\n$19.99\n \n\n  \nConnie Zweig\, Ph.D.\, is a retired Jungian-oriented therapist\, co-author of Meeting the Shadow and Romancing the Shadow\, author of Meeting the Shadow of Spirituality and a novel\, A Moth to the Flame: The Life of Sufi Poet Rumi. Her book\, The Inner Work of Age: Shifting from Role to Soul\, (Sept. 2021)\, extends shadow-work into late life and teaches aging as a spiritual practice. Connie has been doing contemplative practices for 50 years. She is a wife and grandmother and was initiated as an Elder by Sage-ing International in 2017. After investing in all these roles\, she is practicing the shift from role to soul. The workshop is based on material from The Inner Work of Age. \n  URL:https://junginla.org/event/innerwork-2021/ LOCATION:Zoom Meeting – Link will be emailed to participants.
