Fisher King Press will be hosting an online webinar with presenter Kenneth A. Kimmel, Jungian psychoanalyst and author of Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism. Join us as Ken explores narcissistic wounding and the mystery of the Holy Grail.
The thirteenth century Grail Legend of Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach tells of a young knight’s quest to reunite with the Fisher King and heal his wound. From one perspective, it stands as a powerful Western metaphor for men’s transcendence of narcissism, entrapment in the mother complex, and depression.
Parzival’s trial mirrors contemporary man’s encounter with the shadow that wounds his grandiosity. Deeper truths are revealed that expose the shame he must endure to heal his heart, learn to love, and become a man both humble and resilient. These ideas are presented through lecture, powerpoint imagery, and case presentation, based upon excerpts from Ken's book, Eros and the Shattering Gaze -Transcending Narcissism (Fisher King Press, 2011). Questions and discussion will follow.
Ken Kimmel is a Jungian psychoanalyst, author, and teacher, maintaining a private psychotherapy practice in Seattle since 1984, and membership in the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. He has engaged in a lifelong study of dreams and, in the last two decades, the mystical tradition of Kabbalah. New interests include contemporary ideas in philosophy, clinical understanding of ‘inter-subjectivity,’ and narcissism, and the interface of inter-analytical perspectives.
