About this Event

9:30-10:15am: Registration & Welcome Remarks

10:15-11:30am: Where We Are Now: A Jungian View of Aging

Carl Jung believed that the program for the second half of life is very different from that of the first half, when we are developing our identity and establishing our self in the world. In the second half of life, we are meant to give attention to our inner life and engage in the process of becoming our self, which Jung called individuation. Dr. Simpson will discuss the archetypal midlife transition before examining the transition into later life which many of us are now experiencing. She will discuss ways to live as fully as we can as we age and will also ponder what lies ahead.

Sylvia Simpson, MD, is a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst who trained through the Inter Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA) and has a part-time analytic practice in Tucson. She is a Training analyst with the IRSJA and a past president of the Southern Arizona Friends of Jung.

12:30-1:45pm: Women & Aging: Seeking Contemporary Images of the “Juicy Crone”

What archetypes speak to the modern woman’s experience of aging? Jean Shinoda Bolen encourages women to become “the juicy crone.” But what does this mean for us when historical images of the Crone are withered and witchy? Join for a visual presentation and discussion of historical images of the crone and the way women may be redefining those images for our current times.

Catherine Penn Williams, MA, LPC, is a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist in Tucson and current Vice-President of SAFOJ.

1:45-3:00pm: Jung and Aging: Possibilities & Potentials for the Second Half of Life (Library of Congress Video Presentation)

Lionel Corbett, a Jungian analyst and core faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute, gave two presentations at this conference sponsored by the Library of Congress— Successful Aging: Jungian Contributions to Development in Later Life and A Jungian Approach to Spirituality in Later Life. We will watch excerpts from both of them and there will be a Q&A discussion after each video excerpt.

Sylvia Simpson, MD, will facilitate a discussion of this video presentation.
