24th SEASON ANNUAL EVENT:
JUNG AND ACTIVE IMAGINATION
Film featuring James Hillman, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst
Facilitator: Pamela Heider, Ph.D., CJSSF Vice-President & Program Chair
The emergence of C.G. Jung’s Red Book from years of storage in a Swiss vault has re-kindled interest in Active Imagination. This method of self-exploration involves actively engaging one’s own imagination in dialogue with archetypal and shadow forces, through writing, art, or the spoken word.
In this DVD, James Hillman, noted author, psychologist, and the first Director of Studies at the Jung Institute in Zurich, introduces the method of Active Imagination and delves deeply into the therapeutic value it offers to re-engage us with the Gods and Goddesses of our psyche who are dangerously ignored in an increasingly noisy and demanding world. Hillman considers the history and theory of Active Imagination in Jung’s work, its relationship to making art, and offers examples for scrutiny and discussion. He discusses our fear of inviting in the Gods and Goddesses as they are so often presumed, and sometimes experienced, as demons. He explores our apprehensions at opening wounds, and addresses the difference between the voices of inner figures and auditory hallucinations.
However, the major re-examination of Jung’s original ideas and inspiration does not stop there. Hillman goes on to examine the role of imagination in contemporary culture, and whether imagination itself might need re-imagining. Hillman’s seminar was taped December 9, 2009, in front of a sold-out audience at the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. James Hillman passed away last year at the age of 85. The Center is privileged to present this event in honor of James Hillman.
A discussion follows the film with local Jungian Analysts and the audience,
facilitated by Pamela Heider, Ph.D. An elegant dinner will complete this celebration.
Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Deepen their conceptual and historical understanding of Jung’s method of Active Imagination;
- Describe the role of imagination in manifesting archetypal forces, our ambivalence about confronting it in contemporary culture, and the necessity of honoring these archetypal energies; and
- Demonstrate greater knowledge of the therapeutic value of Active Imagination, together with its practical application in our lives and the lives of clients.
