“I don’t know these stories as well as they know me, I’ve discovered.”
THE MODERN MYTH
What is it about movies or television series that is so appealing? Why do we get captured by certain stories? The protagonists struggles, obstacles, failures, misfortune and breakthroughs can irritate us, lift us up, move us and inspire us. Movies are modern myths, capturing the experiences of being human in a way that engages and capture us. Whether it is a tragedy or a hero’s journey, stories have certain key archetypes in them. On this course we will explore some of these themes and how they are expressed in cinema and in the human psyche.
WHAT DOES THE COURSE FOCUS ON?
This course will focus on six archetypal themes in movies. We will explore these themes from the cinematic perspective and engage in conversation regarding these themes. We will also explore these themes in terms of our own myth through the lens of the movies that moved us.
We will explore the bivalent nature of archetypes, it’s limitations, telos and drive. The role it plays in the individuation process and how it functions in the Jungian psyche. At the end of the course you will understand the theme, recognise it in movies, and how it lives and functions through you.
The Six Archetypal Themes we will explore are:
The Second Personality
Duality and Paradox

My name is Deborah Jean Worthington de Matos. My dream was to work with Jungian therapy since the 1990s; but only in 2015 did this dream begin to come true. In 2016, I was attending my postgraduate studies in Jungian Psychology, when I decided to take part in the Alchemy of Symbols course. My goal was to deepen the knowledge of the concepts to support the development of my monograph. I was therefore expecting something more theoretical, but the practical exercises surprised me and proved more challenging, deep, sensitive and intelligent. What a great gift! The course went beyond my expectations, as it was a beautiful and transformational journey.
It had a profound personal impact, expanding my self-awareness, a rescue and healing process that got me in the way of my personal development process or, as we Jungians like to say, enabled the beginning of my individuation process.
In addition, my monograph was developed with greater fluidity and today is a book in its second edition!
In 2019 I decided to do Alchemy of the symbols again. Again, the articles, podcast and the ever-welcoming support provided by the moderators made possible a space of tremendous development and learning. Already working as a therapist for 3 years, I was able to apply this knowledge to my therapeutic care, successfully supporting the process of my clients.
Our daily life puts us in touch with the rational world and the demands of survival, which can make our daily lives dry without “life”. The symbolic life is as necessary as the air we breathe. We are not aware of it all the time, but it keeps us alive and in it we find the myth of our own meaning.
I highly recommend you accompany us on this beautiful journey!
My name is Anja van Kralingen. I am the Director of the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies. I was introduced to Jung in my late twenties, along with the co-founder of the Centre, Stephen Farah. We realised that the transformation we experienced was unique. Most students focused on the theory only, but we spent many(!) nights talking and discussing the practical application of the concepts and wrestled with them on a personal level. This realisation, and the amazing growth and transformation we experienced, charted the
course for our individuation process. Stephen went on to complete his Masters in Jungian and Post Jungian Studies and I completed a Masters in Spirituality, Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology. We opened the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies in 2013. The Centre has grown from strength to strength and we have had 12 000 global students participate in our online courses. My passion and experience of the work of Carl Gustav Jung inspires me to teach Jung in a practical and accessible way. My interest is transformation and the experience of Self through symbolism. We hope you join us on this journey of self-discovery and delving into your own symbolic realm.
