Event description
This nine-week, workshop-based class will explore the Jungian / depth psychological journey of creativity and individuation.

About this event

Nine-week class: Sundays from 4:00-6:00 pm, July 18-September 19, 2021 (excluding Labor Day weekend - Sept. 5th).

“The act of consciousness is central; otherwise we are overrun by the complexes. The hero in each of us is required to answer the call of individuation. We must turn away from the cacaphony of the outerworld to hear the inner voice. When we can dare to live its promptings, then we achieve personhood. We may become strangers to those who thought they knew us, but at least we are no longer strangers to ourselves.”

― James Hollis, Jungian Psychoanalyst and Author

This experiential, workshop-based class, presented over a series of nine weeks, will explore the Jungian and depth psychological journey of individuation. According to Carl Jung, individuation is the process of becoming a separate, whole self that each of us experiences during the course of our lives, as we move through the stages of child and adult development. It involves incorporating unconscious material into consciousness and integrating the various strands of our being in a process of discovery and self-realization.

Drawing inspiration from Jungian psychoanalyst and writer Clarissa Pinkola Estes's book Women Who Run with the Wolves, participants will trace their own journeys of individuation with the help of Estes' chapter "La Selva Subteranea: Initiation in the Underground Forest." Each week we will read and discuss a section of the chapter, with time allotted for individual reflection, journaling, and creative expression as well as dialogue and discovery. Melinda will act as coach and facilitator of this journey.
