A Day With...

Michael Conforti 


Virtually every culture and spiritual tradition speaks to the all-too-human tendency to forget and the profound need to remember.  For the Catholics, there is Anamnesis, a prayer and experience of remembrance of our transpersonal heritage, and in the Jewish tradition, there is the Day of Remembrance. 
In this presentation, Dr. Conforti will discuss the reality and consequences of living in a "Time of the Forgotten" and ways to know and remember the contours of this personal and timeless archetypal domain, where past, present, and future collapse into a moment, illustrating these points through clinical examples, and Elie Wiesel's writing on trauma and the need to remember. 


Michael Conforti, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst, author, and founder/ director of the Assisi Institute. His work has resulted not only in a training institute based on his discoveries, but also in the development of a new discipline: Archetypal Pattern Analysis. Dr. Conforti is actively investigating the workings of archetypal fields and the relationship between Jungian psychology and the New Sciences. He lectures nationally and internationally and applies his insights as a sought-after consultant to businesses, government institutions, and the film industry. Dr. Conforti served as script consultant on the recently released film, Pride and Glory, and is the author of Field, Form, and Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature & Psyche, Threshold Experiences: The Archetype of Beginnings, and the forth-coming Hidden Presence: Complexes, Possessions, and Redemption. In addition to his work here in the United States, he is actively involved in training professionals in the field of Archetypal Pattern Analysis, in Bogota, Columbia; Russia, Italy, and Australia.

OUR MISSION
The Jung Society of Washington brings the general public and professional community the insights and tools of analytic psychology and related disciplines. Through programs, classes, visiting speakers, partnerships with like organizations, and digital media, the Jung Society creates a platform for communal discussion regarding the personal and cultural issues that confront us. The tools these programs provide assist individuals, relationships, and societies in a dialogue that enhances understanding the unconscious dynamics that course through personal lives, cultural problems, and historic patterns.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
