A Jungian Lens on Artist Hilma af Klint
Presented by Marybeth Carter, Ph.D.
The Swedish artist, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), has transitioned from obscurity to prominence as was illustrated recently by a solo exhibition of her work. This exhibition (October 12, 2018-April 23, 2019) became the Guggenheim New York’s most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago. In 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.

An Immersive Sound Experience:
Why do I cry when I hear the first eight minutes of Wagner’s Ring Cycle?
Presented by Sheila Traviss, L.M.F.T.
We know sound/vibration by way of chromosomal/collective, congenital/familial, and personal contact. In this workshop, we will explore the collective, familial, and personal experiences of sound via a soundscape, accompanied by a personal narration of pre-birth, in-utero, lived experience, as well as those imagined to accompany one post-death. The concept of sense memory retrieval will be explored from both a clinical as well as a poetic perspective, as a way of imagining and experiencing our connection to our world via sound. This workshop will include a written active imagination for participants to use for themselves and/or their clients as an aid to accessing embodied memories.
