Workshop

Susan Tiberghien 

The saving wholeness of the inner man cannot come about until all parts of the psyche have been made conscious. -C.G. Jung, Mysterium Coniunctionis

I always knew that these experiences contained something precious and therefore I knew of nothing better than to write them down in a “precious” book. -C.G. Jung, “Epilogue,” The Red Book

In this workshop we will first look at the concept of ‘wholeness’ from Plato to Jung. We will then look at how to answer this longing for wholeness. How do we bring the different parts of ourselves together (individuation)? We will see how Jung’s own search for wholeness is embodied in The Red Book. Through fresh writing we will search for our own living images. We will dialogue with them and discover hidden parts of ourselves (active imagination), and we will put it all down in a ‘precious’ book, in the form of a journal entry, a fragment, or a folk tale, as we write toward wholeness.

Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Switzerland, has published three memoirs: Looking for Gold; Circling to the Center; and Footsteps, A European Album, and a book on writing, One Year to A Writing Life. She has been teaching creative writing for about twenty years at the International Women's Writing Guild, at C.G. Jung Centers, writers conferences, graduate programs, and at the monthly Geneva Writers' Workshops. She directs the Geneva Writers' Group and Conferences. Her website is www.susantiberghien.com.
