Archetypal Presences: The Forms Rolling Beneath the Surfaces of Our Lives

Jung approached the reality of the psyche with reverence because he believed that we do not create our thoughts and forms of expression any more than if we created animals in the forest. They create us. The role of the ego, then, is to observe, respect, and dialogue with those intra-psychic “others” while holding fast to the maintenance of conscious life.  This presentation will explore the forms which roll beneath the surface of our lives, and why our dialogue with them lifts us out of the mere surface features of our brief journey.

Stuck Places/Shadow Places: the Psychopathology of Daily Life. Three Case Studies

Aristotle noted that art was a more reliable portrait of what happens than history.  History is both an interpretation and tied to the particular; art in turn speaks to the timeless, universal movements of history and embodies the permutations of the human animal.  These three portraits in poetry will serve as the springboard for our conversation:   T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Jon Stallworthy’s “Letter from Berlin,” and Sharon Olds’s “I Go Back to May, 1937.”  By witnessing the struggles of others, we gain pointers, insights, even strategies to address our own difficulties. In this workshop, we will examine three reports from the trenches, the never-ending wins and losses in the battle to survive, even make sense of one’s life.

The Absent Father Effect on Daughters: Father Desire, Father Wounds, with Susan E. Schwartz

Date – Friday, January 14, 2022
Time – 7 pm – 9 pm, (EST) via Zoom
Cost – $30

The absent father effect is a love story, but an unrequited one. Harm is done due to the presence of his absence, affecting a daughter—and the father–in body, mind, and soul. For many reasons, the father is an essential aspect of the psyche and significant for the daughter’s psychological and physical life expressed personally and culturally. Topics of the psyche affected by the absent father include the negative father complex, puella archetype and examining the undated concept of the animus.  Paradoxically, focusing on the shadow and bleaker side of the daughter/father relationship sheds light on the lack, symptoms, treatment to find repair and hope.

Susan E. Schwartz, Ph.D., Jungian analyst and clinical psychologist is a member the International Association of Analytical Psychology. She has taught in numerous Jungian programs and presented at Conferences, workshops and lectures in the USA and many other countries. Susan has articles in several journals and chapters in books on Jungian analytical psychology. She has a current book published by Routledge in 2020 entitled, The Absent Father Effect on Daughters, Father Desire, Father Wounds. Her analytical private practice is in Paradise Valley, Arizona, USA and her website is www.susanschwartzphd.com.

Time – Wednesday mornings 10:00 AM – 12:00 AM

The pandemic has so altered life as we thought we knew it. Looking at our situation through the lens of dreams, may provide a useful orientation into the strangeness of our shared catastrophe.  ~ Paul Lippmann, 2021

 

You are invited to join a small interactive, online dream group for writers, poets, artists, clinicians, and individuals interested in exploring one’s own and the dreams of others.

 This is not a therapy group, but you will experience a method of working with dreams and the creative imagination that can enhance your understanding of how dreams influence your current life experiences. During this dream group, you will be guided as you re-enter the landscape of your dreams using a method called Embodied Imagination®. By slowly and carefully exploring your dreams from a variety of perspectives you will learn to attend to and embody the sensations and affective states present in the images. This work has been known to lead to an increased depth of the creative imagination and a profound sense of one’s own humanity.

Dreams are the universal language of the soul. In this group, I will guide you as you re-enter the landscape of your dreams. A slow and careful exploration of the images from various perspectives leads to an increased depth of the creative imagination and a profound sense of one’s own humanity.

By working on dreams, it is believed that at the core of the stresses and fears that haunt us most, an agent of change can be found to transform our daytime problems and bring
about a different sense of being alive.

The Symbolism of the Bird, with Olga E. Turcotte

Date  – Saturday, February 19th, 2022
Time – 10 am – 12 pm EST, via Zoom
Cost – $30

Symbols build the bridge between the conscious and the unconscious and are essential for a healthy psyche. They are the best, and at times, the only medium to express that which is in the unconscious and bring it into consciousness.  Our first focus is on the general understanding of what symbols are, where they come from, how they work, and why they are such a vital part of analytical psychology and analysis. We will then study specifically the symbolism of the Bird across cultures, eras, mythologies, and places.  The Bird roams the earth, the skies, the heavens and swims in the oceans and the seas. It is a key Jungian symbol, found everywhere, at all times, crossing across all boundaries of conscious and unconscious life.

By the end of the seminar, participants will have a good understanding of the vital importance of working with symbols, and specifically of the Bird as a key symbol in dreams and analysis.

 

Date & Time:
Saturday, February 19th, 2022
10 am – 12 pm EST, via Zoom
Cost: $30

 

Olga E. Turcotte is a consultant and lecturer based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has lived and studied in seven countries and has worked in the fields of corporate finance, non-profit management, consulting and education. Her interest in analytical psychology started in the mid 80’s while she was still living in C. G. Jung’s Switzerland and has become her vocation over the years. Her areas of focus are dreams, history, literature, religion and symbolism.
