Event description

Description

We will be looking at several texts that amplify this idea of the work against nature in different ways. In the afternoon we will explore together at how these ideas may (or may not) inform the therapeutic situation, as well as our personal, interpersonal and political lives in the present cultural context.


Larry Rayburn, PH.D. is a Jungian analyst practicing in Santa Fe and a member of the New Mexico Society of Jungian Analysts. He trained through the Texas seminar of the InterRegional Society of Jungian Analysts. Larry is interested in male psychology, particularly that of boys and the father, and in the theories of play and psychic energy. As with this program, his Jungian thesis was an exploration of the Alchemical opus contra naturam, or work against nature, as expressed in the flow and counter-flow of life and clinical practice.

In his other life he is a husband and father who likes to play various folk instruments and spend time on the river and in the outdoors. Previous to becoming a therapist and analyst he worked in the construction industry for many years. He is a graduate of Prescott College as well as Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Publications Include: Fire in the Stone: The Alchemy of Desire (essay); Psyche and the Sacred: Spirituality Beyond Religion; The Sacred Cauldron: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Practice; The Religious Function of the Psyche

Areas of Emphasis: Religious Function of the Psyche; Interface of Analytical Psychology and Psychoanalytical Theories.
