    Course

    We spend up to a third of our lives in the underworld of sleep, and we average six dreams per night. While many psychologists find such autonomous psychic production the random firing of neurons, careful observers, equipped with a knowledge of metaphor and symbol, discern that careful tracking of these phenomena leads us to perspectives on our lives far different from that observed by the ego. In this course we will learn dream theory, methods of interpretation, and actual practice working together on dream material.

    Part 2

    Book: Jung on Active Imagination, Edited and Introduction by Joan Chodorow

    From the backmatter: The roots of all of the creative-art psychotherapies (art, dance, music, drama, poetry) can be traced to C.G. Jung's early work on active imagination.  Herein, Joan Chodorow offers a collection of Jung's writings on active imagination.  Jung developed this concept between 1913 and 1916, following his break with Freud.  During this time, he experienced intense inner turmoil, suffering from lethargy and fear; his moods threatened to overwhelm him.   He searched for a method to heal himself and decided to engage with the impulses and images of his unconscious.   It was through the rediscovery of the symbolic play of his childhood that Jung was able to reconnect with his creative spirit. In a 1925 seminar and again in his memoirs, he tells the remarkable story of his experiments during this time that led to his self-healing.  Jung learned to develop an ongoing relationship with his lively creative spirit through the power of imagination and fantasies.  He termed this therapeutic method "Active Imagination." 
                                                                                               
    This method, based on the natural healing function of the imagination and its many expressions, Joan Chodorow clearly presents in texts set in the proper context. Her discussion of Jung's writings and ideas is interwoven with contributions from other Jungian authors and artists.
    April Barrett is in service to the dissemination of Jung's thought through her participation and training with the Creative Initiative Foundation, the Guild for Psychological Studies, and the Jung Society of Washington, for which she is program co-director and secretary/treasurer of the board.

    Course

    “…to understand war we have to get at its myths, recognize that war is a mythical happening, that those in the midst of it are removed to a mythical state of being…and that no other account—political, historical, sociological, psychoanalytical—can penetrate…to the depths of inhuman cruelty, horror, and tragedy and to the heights of mystical transhuman sublimity.”
    - James Hillman

    “Our only chance for dissipating the archetypal force of war in our lives is to become conscious of how it works through us so that we do not remain possessed by it but rather can labor responsibility to direct its powers. Because of the ultimate nature of the effort, this labor is fundamentally a matter of soul.”
    - Edward Tick

    This country has been continuously at war for the longest period in its history, yet most of us remain removed from its acts and aftereffects. How do we account for this collective dissociation, and what can we do about it? How might an archetypal understanding of war and war-wounding promote greater social coherence, help us address political polarization around foreign policy, and draw us into appropriate engagement with returning warriors? Our readings view war and warriors through an archetypal lens, lending much-needed context for our understanding of the phenomenon of war and the experiences to which warriors are subjected on our behalf. Ancient and cross-cultural approaches will inform our discussion of ways we may participate in the process by which the returning warrior heals, passes into mature eldership, and takes up vital spiritual functions in the community.

    Please read through Chapter 2 of Hillman’s book in preparation for the first meeting.

    An Evening With...

    “If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.  When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you.  I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.”  
    - Joseph Campbell

    Considering Joseph Campbell's intriguing quote, how might we even begin to discover our bliss? How can we support such a nourishing, ecstatic, and Selfish quest?  Our world is so often a busy, mechanistic, fear addicted, survival oriented one.  How can we gain access to that ‘field’ of bliss energy in such an environment?    

    The word ecstasy comes from the Latin ex-stasis, meaning to stand outside oneself.  This definition can give us a hint at how we might connect to this field of bliss. Jung’s concepts of synchronicity and the subtle body in alchemy suggest that the mind is field like and that it extends out beyond our brains in a similar way that magnetic fields spread out beyond magnets.  If we can become lucidly conscious within this field, we can discern the energy field of bliss and open the doors that will help us build the capacity to experience bliss. 

    In order to differentiate ourselves from, what Jung calls, “the arsenical malignity of collective thinking,” we need to push through the great natural resistance of the psyche, linked to our identity conditioned by the collective.  We can then open the door of self knowledge through inner work, shadow integration and the process of individuation.  In being called to approach these tasks of awareness, traumas and the dark shadows generally get our attention first.  It is just as important to own the often neglected golden shadows that also lead directly to ecstatic experiences.  

    There are many ways to build the capacity for bliss including art, meditation, Kundalini yoga, dreams, active imagination, and lucid dreaming. These powerful practices can help us develop the lucidity and fearlessness necessary to be able to unconditionally embrace our shadows both dark and golden.  In this way we can achieve “amor fati,” love of our fate.  With this self love we can reclaim the energy that would otherwise have gone into repression of our shadows and re-purpose it to build our capacity for primordial infinite energy.  Through the doorway of inner work we can incubate an intention to experience ecstasy, joy and bliss.  In this way we may meet our inner embodied bliss through the doors that have opened in the outer world.

    Lecture

    Is the culture in crisis? Is what is happening in culture any different than before? Is the Jungian response to cultural turmoil to turn inward a truly psychological reaction? Anima mundi, the soul of the world, was considered by alchemists as the force providing vitality to all earthly life. Contemporary complexity theory holds that phenomena of the world emerge through the interaction of systems outside of human intentionality. From these standpoints, cultural issues can be seen from a larger depth psychological perspective than contemporary political dialogue allows.

    This presentation lays out the concepts of soul, anima mundi or world soul, and American soul and relates them to the new science of complexity.  We then look at how the “Trump” phenomenon serves as an alchemical “emergence” from the interaction of multiple systems in the cultural soul. Our focus will be on how qualities ascribed to an individual placed into the role of leadership are reflections of various strains predominant in the cultural psyche and how this type of inquiry relativizes a sense of certainty regarding American identity.

    Workshop

    Saturday Workshop, Part 1: The Soul of Terror/ The Terror of Soul

    Across cultures and throughout the ages the quality we call “terror” has marked humankind’s encounter with aspects of psychological life larger than consciousness can hold. The heavens, earth, gods, beauty – all seem to demand and get blood. Terror lies at the foundation of fundamental human enterprises of religion, politics, and economy. What marks terrorism as especially terrifying is the intimate setting of the violent encounter, almost as if it came from us…and, in fact, close psychological examinations of terroristic events reveal the underlying complicity of terrorist and victim. This presentation, accompanied by images, will be an exploration of the archetypal basis of a phenomenon that has caught contemporary fascination, while its roots extend into the depths of the psyche.

    Saturday Workshop, Part 2: An Overview of America's Involvement in the Middle East

    Archetypes such as "terror" do not appear randomly, rather there are specific conscious attitudes and actions which evoke them. In the cultural sphere we might call these attitudes and actions cultural complexes. The history of American involvement in the Middle East has been marked by a sense of superiority, self-interest at the expense of a foreign people, and a consistent ignorance regarding the perspective and values of its culture. In this presentation we will look at American attitudes and actions regarding the Middle East to see how they have played their part in bringing about terrorist activity.

    It is said that we are now living in extraordinary times. How are you coping? What are your thoughts, feelings, and experiences? Please join me in a discussion of Erich Neumann’s Depth Psychology and a New Ethic, published in German in 1949, and certainly relevant today.

    Neumann was born in Berlin in 1905 and died in Tel Aviv in 1960. He met Jung in 1933 at a seminar that Jung was conducting in Berlin.  Searching for a tzadik (a spiritual guide), Neumann entered analysis with Jung for six months in 1933 before he emigrated to Tel Aviv.  The two men corresponded until Neumann’s death.  His other works include The Origins and History of Consciousness (1954), The Great Mother (1955), and Amor and Psyche (1956).

    An Evening With...

    "A dream that is not understood remains a mere occurrence; understood, it becomes a living experience."
    - Carl Jung

    Keeping a dream journal and working with dreams in a dream circle can help us gain some understanding of the meaning of our dreams. In addition, we can deepen our understanding of our dreams through the visual arts. Creating and looking at art inspired by dreams can help us get in touch with the inner parts of ourselves that are represented by the dream images.  Engaging with dreams through art can intensify our understanding of dreams on an emotional level, and help us integrate this understanding in waking life.

    In this program we will form a dream circle led by Annilee Oppenheimer and work with the very first dream that dream artist Janet Fox remembers having had as a child. We will then look at and discuss a piece of art that she created as an adult in response to this dream. By interacting with the dream in these ways, we will experience how a dream can continue to become alive with meaning decades after it occurred. 

    This program is appropriate for both those who are new to dream work as well as for veteran dreamworkers. 

    A retired lawyer, Annilee Oppenheimer enjoys exploring dreams, poetry, music, archetypal symbolism, storytelling, and active imagination as vehicles to make connections – both with our deepest selves and with others.  She is a Haden Institute certified dream group leader, and she leads dream groups.

    Janet Fox is a member artist of Gallery 209 at Artists and Makers Studios 2 in Rockville, Maryland.  An encaustic and mixed-media painter, Janet explores her dreams through artistic expression.  Her art blog is www.foxdreamart.com.

    "I had very soon seen that analytical psychology coincided in a most curious way with alchemy.  The experiences of the alchemist were, in a sense, my experiences, and their world was my world.  This was, of course, a momentous discovery: I had stumbled upon the counterpart of my psychology of the unconscious."
    - C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, and Reflections, p. 20

    "[T]he entire alchemical procedure . . . could just as well represent the individuation process of a single individual . . ."
    - C.G. Jung, Mysterium Coniunctionis, CW 14, par. 792               

    Alchemy occupied a significant place in Jung’s life and work during his last thirty years.  Three volumes of his Collected Works (CW 12, Psychology and Alchemy; CW 13, Alchemical Studies; and CW 14, Mysterium Coniunctionis) make up a considerable part of Jung’s alchemical writings.  For Jung, the imagery and metaphors of alchemy derived from the collective unconscious and provided an archetypal basis for his own psychology.  This alchemical imagery survives today in the individual soul and provides us with an objective basis from which to approach unconscious material such as dreams and fantasies.  

    The dark, complex, image-dense alchemical material creates a challenge for even the most astute student of alchemy.  Jung put aside the first alchemical book he purchased for almost two years, perceiving it as “blatant nonsense” before deciding to go through it thoroughly.  Jung’s own alchemical writings are challenging due to his tangential style of writing that alludes to relevant imagery and systems of thought (mythology, philosophy, theology).  Today, for those of us who want to delve into alchemy, we have the benefit of the writings of two close followers of Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz and Edward Edinger, each with a stated goal to help the reader more easily grasp the difficult and challenging aspects of Jung’s alchemical writings.

    This course serves as an introduction to alchemy as it relates to Jungian psychology.  We will use two texts:  Alchemy: An Introduction to the Symbolism and the Psychology by Marie-Louise von Franz and Anatomy of the Psyche:  Alchemical Symbolism in Psychotherapy by Edward Edinger.  Each author was a close disciple of Jung and viewed Jung’s alchemical works to be fundamental to his overall psychology.   We’ll begin with the von Franz, reading for the first class Lectures 1-4, pp. 13 - 123

    This class will explore Jung’s concept of the symbolic attitude of the psyche.  We will identify symbols of the Self and interface with them using basic art materials, such as pastels, clay, water color, wire sculpture, writing, and gesture.  Exploring both personal and archetypal symbolism will expand our self-understanding and bring us into relationship with the numinous.

    The dynamics of working together as a group will offer an experience of the healing effect of being witnessed and in turn, witnessing.  All of this will happen within the framework of a secure symbolizing space, the Jungian temenos.  No previous experience with the expressive arts is necessary.  You will be asked to keep a journal during the six weeks of the class to record your experiences of becoming familiar with your Self symbols.  Details to follow upon registration.

    A funny thing happens on the way to the grave — we often pause to laugh.   Why do we laugh?   What is comedy?   How is it related to its cousin tragedy?  Dour Freud wrote a book on jokes, and Jung, noted for his Olympian laughter, barely touches the subject.  Various perspectives on comedy will be illustrated with jokes, so be prepared to laugh.  In fact, please bring a joke of your own

    An Evening With...

    In this evening’s program we will explore important aspects of death and the dying process. Some of these experiences were well-known by previous generations far more intimately familiar with death than we are today, while other aspects of death and dying are now being discovered through modern-day research in the fields of consciousness and thanatology.  Topics will include the psychological and spiritual tasks faced by the dying, end-of-life experiences such as nearing-death awareness, death-bed visions and dreams, and terminal lucidity, and the changes in consciousness one undergoes during the death process.  Understanding these phenomena will help each of us prepare for our own death as well as effectively support others as they die.

    Mary Ann Melpolder has had a life-long interest in death, bereavement, and the survival of consciousness.  She holds Master's degrees in Thanatology from Hood College and in American Studies with a focus on warfare from the University of Maryland.  She served for two years as a hospice volunteer with Montgomery Hospice working with the dying and their families.  She is a member of the Association for Death, Education, and Counseling, and the International Association of Near-Death Studies.
