Too many of us have lost our senses of awe\, gratitude\, connectedness\, and sacrifice\, leading to powerful individual and social forces that work against adopting cooperative behaviors. In this presentation\, we will consider individual and cultural complexes and defenses that impede the needed transformation of collective consciousness. This psychological transformation represents a critical step in human evolution\, and our failures in this regard are already the basis for profound destruction and suffering\, leading to international conflict. Changes that many of us resist could paradoxically lead to greater sustainability and a more meaningful way of living. The potential contributions of psychology and analytic theory in movement toward an actualizing model of human cooperation will be considered.  \nCourse Objectives: \n\nDescribe cultural complexes that impede the needed transformation of collective consciousness.\nDiscuss the contributions analytical psychology can play in how we handle our interdependence\, personally and collectively.\n\nSeth Wigdor Robbins\, MD\, MPH\, is a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst in private practice in San Francisco and Berkeley\, and a member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. He sees adult patients in his practice\, and is interested in how current cultural factors influence attitude and outcomes in analysis and psychotherapy. He is also trained in Public Health\, and has a longstanding interest in environmental issues and in trying to understand psychological factors underlying people’s resistance to more effectively address climate change\, and in the implementation of more sustainable and cooperative ways of living.

The tension between the ego’s sense of fragmentation and dissociation that often accompanies this complex\, and the psyche’s desire for unification will be examined from a clinical perspective. There will be time for discussion of the archetypal factors which animate this powerful complex. \nOn the Racist Nature of the Psyche\nBrockton Hill\, J.D.\, M.A.\nThe psyche\, as imagined by Jung in his final and most mature theoretical writings\, exists between two internal poles that generate the energy that constitute its substance. These poles Jung termed instinct and spirit\, with instinct rooted in the body and matter and spirit lodged in the heavenly realm of what Jung termed the archetypes. This talk will explore how collective western consciousness produced racism in response to the psychic conflict between the drive to power of instinct and the demands of morality rooted in spirit. \nReflections on Racism from a Mixed heritage Analyst\nCydny Rothe\, L.C.S.W.\nOpening up our hearts and minds to the influence of racism in our personal\, professional and political lives is hard and important work. For some\, the discussion has always been on the table and comes out of years of personal and cultural trauma. For others\, the discussion has been a choice and in some cases\, has been hidden by dissociation. Taking up the personal experiences and ancestral resonances of a mixed heritage Jungian analyst\, this talk will unpack some of the issues that keep consciousness and conversations about race sequestered in faraway corners of the psyche. \nDreaming in Black and White:\nRace and the Unconscious\nFanny Brewster\, Ph.D.\nThis Dream Workshop invites participants to share dream material that is related to racial or ethnic issues previously un-examined within a group setting. The purpose of the group is to allow material from the unconscious that can support the dreamer and dream group members in deepening their understanding of themselves\, complexes\, etc. through dreams. Please bring a dream. \nPanel Discussion \nCourse Objectives: \n\nIdentify three Jungian Psychology theories: Shadow\, Opposites and Complexes and their relationship to the Jungian concept of Other in terms of ethnicity.\nDescribe what is meant by a personal\, self-identified racial complex.\nList and give an example of three American cultural complexes that have led to inter-generational collective societal problems.\nDescribe the instinctual pole of the psyche as understood by Jung.\nDescribe the spiritual pole of the psyche as understood by Jung.\nList three racial informed theoretical dream features of the shadow from a Jungian perspective.\nDescribe the main characteristics of Jung’s theory of opposites and their applicability to racial issues in the clinical setting\nGive an example of how the ego\, shadow and an archeytpe can manifest within a dream state experience\, and include any relevant ethnic contextual references.\n\nFanny Brewster\, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst and author of poetry and nonfiction.

Paradise Regained DESCRIPTION:Presented by Jacob Zighelboim\, M.D. \nRespondent: Robert Moradi\, M.D. \nBy framing humanity’s “fall from grace” in terms of man’s base\, evil-inclined nature we have accepted the idea that it was (still is) our destructive nature that has caused us so much suffering. In this presentation\, we will follow the evolution of our Hebrew ancestors efforts to overcome suffering and regain the paradisiacal life God had intended for us. The talk will also offer a new iteration of the Garden of Eden Story\, one that celebrates rather than condemns our humanity and affirms that we suffer not because we are flawed\, bad individuals\, but because we are human. \nCourse Objectives: \n\nGive two examples of how previous generations attempted to relieve psychological suffering.\nGive an example of what types of behavior and attitude promotes psychological well-being.\nReframe the Garden of Eden story from the perspective of compassion for the flawed aspect of humanity.\nGive an example of why this attitude is critical in psychological development.\n\nJacob Zighelboim\, M.D.\, is a retired physician/scientist and a former professor of Medicine and Microbiology and Immunology at the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

In Buddhist theory\, dreams are divided into several types\, but\, generally speaking\, Buddhist custom uses dreams to describe the illusory and ephemeral nature of human existence\, and also to describe human life that has not yet been enlightened. This perspective exists within a larger Buddhist framework that affirms the value of dreams and sometimes offers detailed dream interpretations. Buddhists are willing to focus on dreams to advance their spiritual path. Today’s practitioners continue to record beneficial dream images\, suggesting that dreams can offer meaningful examples of the religious function of the psyche as it occurs in the context of different spiritual traditions. Please join us for a dialog about the place of dreams in Buddhist thought\, with particular emphasis on the Chan Buddhist tradition (the Zen tradition in China). We will consider the place of dreams in this tradition and their possible relationship to the Jungian idea of the Self and the individuation process.  \nCourse Objectives: \n\nExplain the categories of dreams found in Buddhist theory.\nCompare and contrast Buddhist dream theory with a Jungian approach to dreams.\nDescribe the ways that the religious function of the psyche manifests in different cultural contexts.\nRecount culturally sensitive ways of working clinically with analytic clients who come from a Chinese background.\n\n\nMaster Dingkong\, Ph.D. received his Ph.D. from the City University of Macau. His doctorial tutor was Professor Heyong Shen\, a Jungian Analyst. Master is the president of the Institute of Eastern Buddhist Psychology in Fuzhou\, China. He is also Abbot of Jile Temple\, established thirteen hundred years ago during the Tang Dynasty.

In 2001\, Master Dingkong began teaching at the College of Yun Men Buddhism in Guangdong Provence of China\, where\, after serving as Dean of Education\, he became Provost. He remains a Professor at the College of Yun Men Buddhism. His research interests include Buddhist psychology\, Chan practice\, and the religious function of the psyche. \nPatricia Katsky\, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst and a professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute. \nSylvia Xu\, Ph.D. is an associate professor at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology\, a Router for Jungian analytic training in China and a registered psychotherapist.

Jung \nRecent studies suggest that reconnecting to nature can increase one’s sense of vitality\, promote a sense of healing\, provide inspiration\, stimulate self- awareness\, decrease pain and stress\, support the individuation process and contribute to the resolution of trauma.  In many ways Jung understood this intuitively\, as he recognized that restoring the broken bond between humans and nature is imperative to both our survival and our sanity.  In this workshop we will discuss the evolutionary intersection of ecological psychology with Jung’s work\, and learn practices which can facilitate our connection to what Jung called our ‘natural’ or ‘primordial’ being. \nLearning objectives \n\nDescribe recent research findings which demonstrate how connecting to nature can help decrease pain and stress and promote psychological well-being\nDescribe what is meant by the term ‘ecopsychology’ and its relationship to current psychological practice\nGive an example of a healing practice that can be taught to patients who are recovering from trauma\n\nShanti Mayberry HHP\, Ph.D.\, is a depth ecopsychologist\, holistic health consultant\, and meditation and movement teacher in private practice in San Diego. A Jungian sandtray therapist for over 20 years\, her background includes work in somatic studies\, feminism\, Eastern spiritual and earth wisdom traditions.

Using case material\, we will examine some of the ways in which to view progression (or lack of) within the context of Sandplay therapy. \n\nSome Considerations at the Initial Sessions with a Child\n\nSachiko Taki-Reece\, Ed.D.\, M.F.T.\nIn working with children\, it is critical that the therapist also establish a therapeutic    alliance with the parent and/or caretaker\, partly to lessen negative projections onto the child\, and partly to help the parent or caretaker learn to identify and and help the child manage challenging feelings.  In Sandplay the child is able to express through play emotional conflict\, anxiety\, depression\, anger\, grief and deep emotional turmoil by creating various scenes in the sand in silence.  These sand scenes can then be used as a way or mirroring\, expressing\, and communicating what is often not yet available in language.  This seminar will help the therapist to identify Kalff’s stages of ego development as expressed through Sandplay as well as the stages \n\nThe Witch Archetype:\nIts Impact in a Sandplay Case\n\nJoan Concannon\, M.F.T.\nThe figure of the witch in fairy tales symbolizes the dark\, devouring aspect of the   Mother Archetype.  As a figure in Sandplay\, the witch often represents a sense of chaos either internal or external\, which can threaten to overwhelm a more fragile ego.\nDrawing from fairy tales\, clinical material\, including dreams and sandtrays\, this  workshop will demonstrate some of the ways in which the archetype of the witch can unconsciously influence the life of the client as well as challenge the therapeutic process. \n  \nJoan C. Concannon\, M.F.T.\, is Jungian analyst in private practice in Calabasas. She is a teaching member of the C.G. Jung Study Center of Southern California. She has lectured nationally\, interweaving Sandplay with Jungian dream interpretation.

She currently serves as Co-Coordinator of the Sandplay Community of Los Angeles. Her work has been published in the Journal of Sandplay Therapy. Debbie has a background as a classical pianist\, and also works with people in the arts\, using Sandplay as a tool in helping overcome creative blocks. \nSachiko Taki-Reece\, Ed.D.\, M.F.T.\, is a Jungian Analyst\, in private practice in Silver Lake where she also offers supervision.

Jung\, CW 16. \nJung’s prescient grasp of the relational aspect of psyches  resonates with contemporary notions of bidirectional influence in psychotherapy. In this talk we will examine the role of Complex Adaptive Systems Theory (CAS)\, fundamental to infant research\, as a model for furthering the process of individuation. We will look at some of the ways that individuation unfolds in the context of a relationship between two people\, both in adult clinical interactions in the consulting room\, as well as in the developing artistic exchange between Matisse and Picasso. \nLearning Objectives:  \n\nDescribe the basic principles of Complex Adaptive Systems Theory in the context of the therapeutic relationship.\nDescribe what is meant by the term bidirectionality\, and its use in psychotherapy.\n\nLinda Carter\, M.S.N.\, C.S.\, is a Jungian analyst who was in private practice in Boston\, Massachusetts and in Providence\, Rhode Island for more than 30 years.

Gary Sparks\, M.A.\, M.Div.  \nContinuing our investigation of the  archetypal basis of experience\, this workshop will describe the role of Jung’s final conception of the archetype\, and its relationship to the analytic process. Using case material\, we will examine the role of the psychoid aspect of the unconscious in the healing process of a patient with anorexia nervosa. Utilizing the patient’s dreams\, including their alchemical symbolism\, as well as the erotic aspects of the transference\, we will look at the interplay of the mind-body connection in the context of the therapeutic relationship. \nLearning Objectives:   \n\nDescribe what is meant by the psychoid archetype.\nGive an example of how the psychoic archetype is manifested in a patient dealing with anorexia.\nDescribe what is meant by alchemical symbolism.\nDescribe the stages of alchemy and their psychological parallel as they pertain to the therapeutic experience.\nDescribe what is meant by the erotic aspect of the transference.\nGive an example of how the erotic transference can manifest in a patient with anorexia and how to work with this material in a way which leads to psychological integration.\n\nJ.

Through the use of archetypes and symbolic language\, it suggests a way of reading and understanding the Torah as a psychological journey of the individual soul\, from alienation and physicality to ecstatic joy\, and an eternal perspective on the enigma and sheer wonder of being. In this talk we will examine some of the ways in which the Chassidic masters understood the human predicament\, and the road that they offered towards spiritual and psychological redemption. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nDescribe Chassidism from a psychological perspective.\nGive an example of how the Chassidic masters understood the psychological issues of their day\, and the relevance of this approach to current psychological practice.\n\nRabbi Tal Sessler\, Ph.D.\, has taught at the New School for Social Research in New York\, and is the author of three books in continental philosophy and modern Jewish identity\, including Levinas and Camus: Humanism for the 21st Century and Leibowitz and Levinas: Between Judaism & Universalism. \n  URL:https://junginla.org/event/introduction-to-chassidic-psychology/ LOCATION:C.G.

This ignorance and lack of empathy then gives “privilege” to those who might nor really deserve it.  A review of the testimony of these two people will serve as a starting point to look at his complex in a broader sense\, including gun violence\, corporate abuse\, and other regularly repeating cultural events that cause significant trauma. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nIdentify cultural attitudes which preclude empathetic and compassionate responses to individual and collective trauma;\nExamine attitudes that can facilitate more reconciliation when such defensive dynamics become activated.\n\nSteven Galipeau\, M.A.\, M.Div. is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Woodland Hills\, California and President and Executive Director of Coldwater Counseling Center in Studio City\, a Jungian oriented sliding scale nonprofit.

He came to conceive of his experiences as an initiation into the mysteries\, which he sought to generalize as the individuation process. This talk reconstructs the parallel genesis of this esoteric private cosmology and exoteric psychology and their interrelations. \nSonu Shamdasani\, Ph.D.\, is a London-based author\, editor\, and Philemon Professor of Jung History at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College. Shamdasani’s writings focus on Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961)\, and cover the history of psychiatry and psychology from the mid-nineteenth century to current times. He edited for its initial publication a major work of Jung: The Red Book. Although well known by its title\, until 2009 its contents had remained hidden from the public and from practicing psychotherapists. In 2003 Shamdasani founded\, along with Stephen Martin\, the Philemon Foundation\, which sought to publish all of Jung’s works. Although Jung’s Collected Works had been published in twenty volumes\, there were manuscripts and other works by Jung that remained unpublished. \n  \n  URL:https://junginla.org/event/between-esotericism-and-psychologyrunes-magic-and-the-mysteries-in-jungs-liber-novus/ LOCATION:Skirball Cultural Center – Haas Conference Room\, 2701 N.

We will explore how these contributed toward his PTSD and other clinical and existential afflictions as illustrated in the Hebrew Bible. We will also discuss what it means historically and for us today that the God of Western and Islamic civilization suffered from these conditions. Special attention will be given to what Jung\, among others\, has called the “Yahweh complex\,” a cluster of clinical features including narcissistic grandiosity and self-centeredness\, fits of rage\, and empathic failure.  Our approach to God will be as a figure of the religious imagination rather than as a representation of an objective Godhead. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nDescribe how the story of the Abrahamic God mirrors the evolution of our human experience of God from a personal and symbolic perspective.\nDescribe from a historical and cultural perspective the idea that the God of Western and Islamic civilization suffered psychologically from PTSD.\nDescribe what is meant by a Yahweh complex\, and give examples of how this would manifest in clinical practice.\n\n The Divine Mind\nBy Micheal Gellert\n$26.00\nBuy Now \n  \n  \n  \nMichael Gellert\, M.A.\, L.C.S.W. is a Jungian analyst practicing in Los Angeles and Pasadena\, California and former Director of Training of the C.

Do such traditionally gendered ideas remain useful in our current age? How do we help our clients create a vital connection to the “Other” given the shifts and splits alive within today’s culture? Most importantly\, how do we understand and facilitate our clients’—particularly\, but not only\, our women clients’—relationship to a deeply felt\, individual sense of self so that each may live a more authentic\, meaningful life?  This lecture will explore these questions and their implications for individuation\, with particular attention to working with women clients. \nLearning Objectives:  \n\nIdentify and describe what is meant by the “Internal Other” as it is used in Jungian Psychology;\nExplain how traditional\, gendered ideas have hampered our psychological understanding of women and their development\, and identify a way these concepts may be modified to bring them into line with current cultural understanding;\nIdentify a way to facilitate the relationship between a client and the internal “Other”\, and explain how building this relationship may enable a client to strengthen their connection to a core sense of self\, expanding psychological development.\n\nPamela Freundl Kirst\, Ph.D.\, is a certified Jungian analyst and clinical psychologist who practices in Santa Monica.

We will examine some of the similarities and differences between Jung and Freud’s approach to the unconscious especially as it pertains to working with dreams.  As we analyze the dream\, we will focus on the function of the shadow in dreams\, as a way of integrating aspects of the personality that are often evacuated\, projected outward\, devalued\, or dismissed because they are found to be too disruptive to the preservation of an overly adaptive ego. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nDescribe what is meant by the term active imagination and how it is used in psychotherapy;\nDescribe what is meant by the term amplification and how it is utilized in psychotherapy;\nDescribe what is meant by the term shadow in Jungian theory and practice;\nGive an example of how the shadow manifests in dreams;\nDescribe some of the clinical difficulties in working with a patient with an overly adaptive ego;\nDescribe how dream work can be of value in working with a patient with an overly adaptive ego.\n\nMichal Aizenman\, L.P.C.C.\, is a Jungian analyst in private practice in West Los Angeles.

Dvořák set out to find and compose “American music.” What he created is a collage\, suggestions of the hope of immigrants in the boundless space; the presence of slavery; the treatment of Native Americans; the pristine beauty of the natural resources. Even more poignant today\, we hear this music with all its shadows fully in the light. \nThis presentation will offer an exploration of Dvořák’s signature work\, Symphony No. 9\, “New World\,” through the lens of myth as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Ives/Dvořák festival.

Similarly\, in sandplay we may see it arise when a patient is struggling to contain or find a relationship to opposites or opposing emotional experiences. Drawing from Jung’s concept of the transcendent function\, we will see from a case example how the symbolic aspect of sandplay therapy can help to facilitate a transition from a more rigid psychological attitude towards the development of a more flexible and resilient ego. Participants will have the opportunity to create images of the Self as a means of integrating and applying these concepts to clinical material. \nLearning objectives:  \n\nGive an example of how the tension of the opposites can be seen in sandplay clinical material;\nDescribe what is meant by the transcendent function and its role in psychological change;\nDescribe the cross-cultural significance of the mandala symbol from a psychological perspective;\nDescribe the technique of Sandplay therapy and its application to psychotherapy.\n\nJill Kaplan\, M.A.\, M.F.T. has worked with children and families for over 40 years and holds masters’ degrees in early childhood education and counseling psychology.

DESCRIPTION:Presented by Robert Moradi\, M.D. \nPsychologically nightmares are viewed as the eruption of a fierce conflict between instinct and will within the psyche of an individual.  They are understood as an attempt by the psyche to protect its own container (the body and soul) when the psyche experiences itself in danger of fragmentation or irreparable damage.  Similarly a pandemic can be viewed as a warning about life on earth when the planet itself is in danger of irreversible damage.  In both situations\, the individual and the collective\, the conscious participation of the ego is required in order to re-establish harmony and health. For the first time in modern history\, we are facing a pandemic that threatens the entire planet\, and which has awoken us to the fact that we are one race\, the human race. Our survival depends not only on our ability to work together\, but also to begin to address the myriad of ways in which we have abandoned our planet in order to further our own sensibilities. Like all nightmares\, the pandemic carries the same message\, that something needs to change fundamentally and urgently.  Please join us in a discussion of the symbolic and psychological aspects of the pandemic and the ways in which it is affecting us on a conscious as well as unconscious level\, as the ego struggles to integrate the unbearable and unimaginable sense of chaos that it engenders\, as well as a renewed sense of hope and faith of the human spirit as we confront this unwelcome visitor and agent of transformation. \nLearning Objectives:  \n\nDescribe some of the primary psychological effects of the pandemic in terms of a sense of fragmentation\, loss of structure\, uncertainty\, and destabilization;\nDescribe the emotional effects of quarantining and its effect on psychological health;\nDescribe the symbolic aspect of the pandemic from the standpoint of an internal initiatory process in which the stages of separation\, ordeal\, and return can be experienced from a personal as well as collective perspective\n\nRobert Moradi\, M.D.\, is a Jungian analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles and a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice in Santa Monica. He is a clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine.

The National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine contains numerous research articles about Black citizens’ distrust of medical interactions including clinical mental health services. This seminar will focus on the work of five African American depth psychologists as introduced in the book\, Seeing in the Dark: Wisdom Works by Black Women in Depth Psychology\, why it disrupts a hegemony and hierarchy that privileges clinical work above cultural work\, how it addresses the void left by clinical work that excludes specific cultural knowledge and experience of non-clinical Black women psychologists\, and how greater inclusion of this work can help the evolution of clinical practice today. \nLearning objectives: \n\nIdentify and describe racial biases and how these affect clinical training and practice.\nIdentify and describe areas of clinical practice where specific cultural knowledge is presumed or lacking.\nGive examples of Black non-clinical practices that have been appropriated and institutionalized into clinical settings.\nCompare cases where Black non-clinical practitioners have more effectively met patients’ needs than clinicians.\n\n \nSeeing in the Dark: Wisdom Works by Black Women in Depth Psychology\nEdited by Sharon D.

Drawing from images from Thurston’s book Sacred Deities of Ancient Egypt\, we will examine the archetypal nature of the divine feminine and the divine masculine\, with attention to the presence of dualities and opposites contained within a single deity\, and to the role paradox plays in the dynamic relationships between individual deities. We will explore how the vicissitudes of nature\, such as our current pandemic\, shaped the very essence of the gods of ancient Egypt. Our contemporary interest in gender and identity makes the exploration of attributes of both feminine and masculine deities in the ancient Egyptian pantheon both intriguing\, informative\, and relevant. \nJacqueline Thurston\, M.A.\, is an artist\, writer and Professor Emerita in the School of Art and Design at San Jose State University\, where she taught for over forty years.  She is twice a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Photography Fellowship and a Fulbright Scholar to Egypt. In 2017\, her first book of art was purchased by the Library of Congress for their Rare Book Collection. Thurston’s photographs are in major national and international museum collections\, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Library of Congress; the International Museum of Photography; the Carnegie Museum of Art; the Albright-Knox Museum; the Cantor Museum; the University of New Mexico Museum of Art; the Center for Pho­tography at Arizona University; the Bibliothèque Nationale\, France; and the Bibliothèque Alexandria\, Egypt.

DESCRIPTION:Presented by Ruth Ammann \nThe picture archive of the C. G. Jung Institute Zürich/Küsnacht contains nearly 4\,500 original works by Jung’s patients from 1917-1955\, and another 6\,000 works of patients from the collection of Jolande Jacobi.  Jung frequently asked his patients to paint and draw their inner images as he himself did\, as a means of amplifying unconscious material\, a technique which he called Active Imagination. This unique collection offers an opportunity to study the evolution of an analytic process from numerous patients over the course of decades. Until recently\, these images “slept in grey boxes”\, hidden away.  In this talk\, the archivist of this unique collection will offer an overview of the Archive including her reflections on the meaning and effect of painting in the context of the analytic process.  A case study will be used to illustrate how psychological growth and development are evidenced in a progression of paintings by one patient.\n\nLearning Objectives:\n\nDescribe Jung’s technique of active imagination and its role in the practice of psychotherapy;\nGive an example of how painting as a form of active imagination can be incorporated as a part of psychotherapeutic work;\nUsing the example presented in the seminar\, describe the evolution of the analytic process in light of the progression of their paintings.\n\nPLEASE READ BEFORE THE CLASS: Letter to Mr. O.
