Friday Lecture: JUNG’S PSYCHOLOGY AS ONE MODERN MAN IN SEARCH OF HIS SOUL

with Douglas Canterbury-Counts, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

 

This evening lecture and daylong workshop (see below) represents an unusual opportunity to explore in general the archetypal energies encountered on the path of individuation, and then to focus on specific Gods and Goddesses who cross our willful paths, upset our subjective views, and change the course of our lives. The evening lecture will explore Jung’s assertion that, "effective psychology is applied philosophy." But if philosophy is the love of wisdom, whose wisdom will we live by? Jung’s lived experience and his writings have pointed to the archetype of wholeness, the Self, available to each of us all the time.

 

Dr. Canterbury-Counts will use Jung's Modern Man in Search of a Soul and The Undiscovered Self to explore the archetypal powers on the individuation path. Since listening to and analyzing dreams are major techniques in the Jungian clinical armamentarium, dreams will be used as examples of the interface between the noumenal world and the phenomenal world. These are often referred to as the energies of Yin and Yang, of the receptive and expressive, of the Mother Earth Goddess and the Father Sky God. The intent of the evening is inspiration, education, evocation and initiation into our own unique paths.

 

Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Deepen their conceptual understanding of Jung’s theory of individuation and its practical application as a curative factor in one’s own life and/or the lives of one’s clients; and

  2. Demonstrate greater facility with the power of dreams to serve as linking symbols between the noumenal and phenomenal worlds in one’s life and/or the lives of one’s clients.

 

Saturday Workshop: THE BLACK MOTHER KALI: ARCHETYPE for the 21ST CENTURY

 

The daylong workshop will focus more specifically on feminine archetypes and will emphasize the dangers every individual and modern culture faces by repressing the feminine archetypal energies. In the Vision Seminars at Eranos, Switzerland in 1930, Jung spoke of his concern that the future of the human species required both re-cognition and integration of the repressed Shadow complex and the feminine archetype at a collective level. Shadow work is the essential foundation for all productive therapy encounters to follow. Jung suggests that one cannot hate any part of oneself without hating oneself. Nor can one ignore the numerous forms that shadow manifests in our intrapsychic and interpersonal lives.

Much has been written about the emergence of the feminine, particularly in the latter half of the 20th century. Riane Eisler’s call to transform a dominator model of relationship into a partnership model is one evolutionary spiral from this emergence. It may be that much of the social unrest in the world is the feminine emerging more like the fierce Goddess Kali than a sweet Virgin Mary. Dr. Jean Houston commented that the reemergence of the feminine will be historically viewed as one of the most significant events of the 21st century. The myth of Kali will be reframed as transformation of the ego through shadow work immersed in divine, unconditional love. Jung’s writings on The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, James Hillman’s analysis of Gopi Krishna’s kundalini experience in 1959, written in Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy of Man, and Marion Woodman’s Dancing in the Flames will all be used as examples of Jungian reflection on this ancient teaching of Kali.

Experiential exercises will be utilized to personalize the critical concepts of shadow integration through fierce love. Two labyrinths at the Duncan Center that will be used in the afternoon session to suggest a variation of this process of transformation of the ego, followed by initiation and immersion in the feminine and resurrection of the Self. Twelfth Century monks used the labyrinth as a secret way to maintain worship of the feminine, in their case, of the Virgin, that had been banned by the papacy. It is in this spirit of the integration of shadow and feminine that John Donne preached to the House of Lords in 1619, “1All our life is but a going out to the place of execution, to death. Now was there ever any man seen to sleep between Newgate [a prison] and Tyburn [the gallows]? And we sleep all the way; from the womb to the grave we are never thoroughly awake.” A gentler, no less serious, admonition of the importance of honoring the feminine is the Buddha’s observation that most of us are asleep for most of our lives. “Believe nothing, touch the earth and believe what you find to be real…Wake up! Wake up!” to the Goddesses. Saturday will be an opportunity to wake up a bit more.

Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a broader understanding of the current dialogue between the mythologies of Eastern and Western mystical traditions with regard to feminine powers, e.g., direct numinous experience, and their use in depth psychology;

  1. Describe psychological and social consequences of neglecting the Goddesses;

  2. Demonstrate greater facility with conceptual and practical applications of the concept of shadow work and the integration of archetypal energies, especially the feminine, in one’s life and/or in the lives of one’s clients;

  3. Demonstrate familiarity with the importance of creating ritual as a vehicle for integrating feminine archetypal energies in psychospiritual transformation in one’s own life and/or in the lives of one’s clients;

  4. Deepen their understanding of the importance of the personal development of therapist congruence/authenticity for effective therapy; and

  5. Demonstrate familiarity with meditation techniques, e.g., walking the labyrinth, as essential for psychospiritual transformation.
