Foundation Modules

The Foundation Modules

Certificate Course in Applied Jungian Psychology

This is the 10th year anniversary of this lecture series launched in 2013. This completely revised and updated series, running over the 2023 -2024 calendar years, will introduce the student to the theory and applications of Applied Jungian Psychology. 

Applied Jungian Psychology is an interpretation of classical and post-Jungian psychology, depth-psychology, and the practice of applying these bodies of thinking as a form of psychoeducation outside of clinical practice or academia. This is done with a focus on the promotion of consciousness, meaning and individuation in the student.

The Applied Jung Foundation Modules launch in February 2023 and will be taught by our Head of Learning Stephen Anthony Farah MA. 

About

There are twenty modules in the complete series, presented over two years, each one focusing on a specific key concept from Applied Jungian psychology. Students can attend any module in the series or sign-up to do the complete series for the Certificate Course. 

The workshops are designed with both the complete beginner and the more advanced student in mind, to be thought provoking and offer some insight into their application in the life and psyche of the student.

The workshops are two and a half hours long and include a formal presentation on the topic, Q&A, and interactive exercises (applications) to work with and assimilate the concept.

Complexes

Date and Time: Saturday 18th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

” …they are autonomous complexes, disturbing factors that break through the conscious control and act like true “disturbers of the peace.” Because this is such a well-known fact my term “complex,” as used in this sense, has passed into common speech. The more “complexes” a man has, the more he is possessed.”  (CW Vol 7 par 387)

Bookings now closed for March. The recording will be made available to students who purchase the full series.

The Objective Psyche

Date and Time: Saturday 15th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“This content has an overpowering effect and holds the conscious mind spellbound. The tremendous power of the “objective psychic” has been named “demon” or “God” in all epochs with the sole exception of the recent present. We have become so bashful in matters of religion that we correctly say “unconscious,” because God has in fact become unconscious to us.” (CW Vol 11, par 479)

20 May 2023

Consciousness: In Search of the Archimedean Point

Date and Time: Saturday 20th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“If we picture the conscious mind, with the ego as its centre, as being opposed to the unconscious, and if we now add to our mental picture the process of assimilating the unconscious, we can think of this assimilation as a kind of approximation of conscious and unconscious, where the centre of the total personality no longer coincides with the ego, but with a point midway between the conscious and the unconscious.” (CW Vol 7, par 365)

 

17 June 2023

Shadow

Date and Time: Saturday 17th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego- personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge, and it therefore, as a rule, meets with considerable resistance. (CW Vol 9ii, par 14)

15 July 2023

Eros and Logos: Androgyne and Gender in Jungian Psychology

Date and Time: Saturday 15th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“During puberty it is mostly homosexual experiences, and these are much more common than is generally admitted. Heterosexual experiences come later, not always of a very beautiful kind. For the less the sexual complex is assimilated to the whole of the personality, the more autonomous and instinctive it will be. “(CW 10, par 217)

Persona

Date and Time: Saturday 19th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“It is probably no accident that our modern notions of “personal” and “personality” derive from the word persona. I can assert that my ego is personal or a personality, and in exactly the same sense I can say that my persona is a personality with which I identify myself more or less. The fact that I then possess two personalities is not so remarkable, since every autonomous or even relatively autonomous complex has the peculiarity of appearing as a personality, i.e., of being personified.” (CW Vol 7, par 312)

The Mundus Imaginalis: Part 1 Dreams and Dream Interpretation

Date and Time: Saturday 16th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“It is only in modern times that the dream, this fleeting and insignificant-looking product of the psyche, has met with such profound contempt. Formerly it was esteemed as a harbinger of fate, a portent and comforter, a messenger of the gods. Now we see it as the emissary of the unconscious, whose task it is to reveal the secrets that are hidden from the conscious mind, and this it does with astounding completeness. (CW Vol 7, par 21)

21 October 2023

The Mundus Imaginalis: Part 2 Active Imagination

Date and Time: Saturday 21st, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“It is an undeniable psychological fact that the more one concentrates on one’s unconscious contents the more they become charged with energy; they become vitalized, as if illuminated from within. In fact they turn into something like a substitute reality. In analytical psychology we make methodical use of this phenomenon. I have called the method “active imagination.” (CW 11 par 793)

The Symbolic Life

Date and Time: Saturday 18th, 2023 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“A symbol is an indefinite expression with many meanings, pointing to something not easily defined and therefore not fully known. But the sign always has a fixed meaning, because it is a conventional abbreviation for, or a commonly accepted indication of, something known.” (CW Vol 5, par 180)

The Psychoanalytic Defenses

Date and Time: Saturday 17th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

As anyone who has been in long-term analysis knows, this process of encountering the shadow is an ongoing work and takes immense stamina and commitment. The ego’s self-protective defenses resist violently. Purgatory is a place of salutary and meaningful suffering, unlike the suffering that we see in Inferno.” (Murray Stein, The Mystery of Transformation, pg. 40)

16 March 2024

Transference and Countertransference

Date and Time: Saturday 16th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“Transference, strictly, as I have already said, is a projection which happens between two individuals and which, as a rule, is of an emotional and compulsory nature. Emotions in themselves are always in some degree overwhelming for the subject, because they are involuntary conditions which override the intentions of the ego. Moreover, they cling to the subject, and he cannot detach them from himself. Yet this involuntary condition of the subject is at the same time projected into the object, and through that a bond is established which cannot be broken, and exercises a compulsory influence upon the subject.” (CW 18, par 316)

20 April 2024

Alchemy and the Four Stages of Transformation

Date and Time: Saturday 20th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York

“Since the endeavours of our psychology are so extraordinarily heterogeneous… I would venture to regard the sum total of our findings under the aspect of four stages, namely, confession, elucidation, education, and transformation.” (CW 16, par 122)

The Inferior Function in Jungian Typology

Date and Time: Saturday 18th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“In a similar way, we are afraid of our inferior functions. If you take a typical intellectual who is terribly afraid of falling in love, you will think his fear very foolish. But he is most probably right, because he will very likely make foolish nonsense when he falls in love. He will be caught most certainly, because his feeling only reacts to an archaic or to a dangerous type of woman.” (CW 18, par 35)

The Self and the Second Personality

Date and Time: Saturday 15th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“Once, while I was in my laboratory and reflecting again upon these questions, the devil whispered to me that I would be justified in publishing the results of my experiments and my conclusions without mentioning Freud. After all, I had worked out my experiments long before I understood his work. But then I heard the voice of my second personality: “If you do a thing like that, as if you had no knowledge of Freud, it would be a piece of trickery. You cannot build your life upon a lie.” With that, the question was settled.” (C.G. Jung; Memories, dreams, reflections; pg. 148)

Paradox and the Transcendent Function

Date and Time: Saturday 20th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“The cooperation of conscious reasoning with the data of the unconscious is called the “transcendent function” (cf. Psychological Types, par. 828).20 This function progressively unites the opposites. Psychotherapy makes use of it to heal neurotic dissociations, but this function had already served as the basis of Hermetic philosophy for seventeen centuries. Besides this, it is a natural and spontaneous phenomenon, part of the process of individuation. Psychology has no proof that this process does not unfold itself at the instigation of God’s will.” (CW 18, par 1554)

17 August 2024

The Rosarium Philosophorum

Date and Time: Saturday 17th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York

“I had very soon seen that analytical psychology coincided in a most curious way with alchemy. The experiences of the al- chemists were, in a sense, my experiences, and their world was my world. This was, of course, a momentous discovery: I had stumbled upon the historical counterpart of my psychology of the unconscious. The possibility of a comparison with alchemy, and the uninterrupted intellectual chain back to Gnosticism, gave substance to my psychology.” (C.G. Jung; Memories, dreams, reflections; pg. 205)

21 September 2024

Individuation

Date and Time: Saturday 21st, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“There is a destination, a possible goal, beyond the alternative stages dealt with in our last chapter. That is the way of individuation. Individuation means becoming an “individual,” and, in so far as “individuality” embraces our innermost, last, and incomparable uniqueness, it also implies becoming one’s own self. We could therefore translate individuation as “coming to selfhood” or “self-realization. (CW Vol 7, par 266)

Synchronicity and the Mysterium Coniunctionis

Date and Time: Saturday 19th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“In Mysterium Coniunctionis my psychology was at last given its place in reality and established upon its historical foundations. Thus my task was finished, my work done, and now it can stand. The moment I touched bottom, I reached the bounds of scientific understanding, the transcendental, the nature of the arche- type per se, concerning which no further scientific statements can be made.” (C.G. Jung; Memories, dreams, reflections; pg. 221)

Personal Myth

Date and Time: Saturday 16th, 2024 at 2 pm London/9 am New York.

“Thus it is that I have now undertaken, in my eighty-third year, to tell my personal myth, I can only make direct state- ments, only “tell stories/’ Whether or not the stories are “true” is not the problem. The only question is whether what I tell is my fable, my truth.” (C.G. Jung; Memories, dreams, reflections; pg. 3)
