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)

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)

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)

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)

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 26th, 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)

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)

Transference and Counter-transference

16 March 2024

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)
