Event Description


4-week series starts 11/18. First one is FREE!

Traumatic memory carries a power all its own. It has the force to sweep us across the threshold of tangible reality into a field where the trauma lives on & continues to toss us on a turbulent sea of volatile emotional, physical & psychological upheaval.

While neuroscience has taught us a great deal about the biochemistry of trauma, we still require courage & determination to learn how to navigate these waters. We know so little about the workings & deeper meaning of memory, trauma & healing, 3 forces which perhaps shape our lives more than any others.

Fortunately, there are pioneers who have directly faced these realities & discovered a way to turn their experiences into landmarks of their own individuation. Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor, Nobel Prize winner & author of 50 books+ and C.G. Jung have each braved storms of terror and trauma. Their memories will provide the framework for us explore this theme. Their lives speak to their profound understanding of redemption, healing, the transcendent, & the capacity to turn adversity & experiences of the unimaginable into a truly creative life.

Dr. Whitmont, a prominent Jungian Analyst, offered a truly fresh & innovative understanding of trauma and destiny, saying "Relevant events in a patients' history, which we have been in the habit of viewing as causes of current psychopathology, may now perhaps been seen as manifestations of the beginning life pattern. Traumatic events of childhood...may perhaps be seen as essential landmarks in the actualization of a pattern of wholeness, as the necessary "suffering of the soul", which engenders present and future psychological advance." (The Destiny Concept in Psychotherapy p. 186-187)

The lives of Wiesel & Jung speak to the profound meaning & accuracy of Whitmont's comments. Their respective journeys are a testament to the forward moving strength of the human spirit & the power of the creative psyche to withstand the severest of storms & to build a life whereby the centrality of the trauma sparks a creative contribution for the betterment of the individual and & collective condition.

With more than 30 years of clinical practice, Dr. Michael Conforti's work & research have shown the inexorable relationship between trauma, memory & field, & how these early experiences often represent the guiding forces in our life. In this series, we will look at the reality of memory, trauma & healing through the lens of Wiesel & Jung & through the artful weaving of Dr. Conforti's own pioneering work in archetypal fields. Dr. Conforti will discuss how these 2 deeply spiritual masters have taught us so much about the profundity of their experiences.

Each session will include the writings of Wiesel & Jung. We recommend reading Wiesel's The Accident (1991), The Forgotten (1995), Jung's A Review of the Complex Theory (1934), and Answer to Job,(1952) considered one of Jung's greatest works

i'm lost about what to do except for this comment page. thus, i probably missed. given my current position and commitments the free one seemed a blessing.

Comment by Ilse Asplund on November 18, 2013 at 5:16pm

Was so excited to participate but after multiple efforts found it too complicated to complete the registration process. Sounds like a wonderful seminar.  

Comment by Bonnie Bright on November 18, 2013 at 2:53pm

Yes, Neil (and all). I just went through the registration process myself and that IS the case. If you are only attending the free session, you will be asked for a credit card but you will see a charge of $0 as you submit it--i.e. no charge. "See "you all soon.

Comment by Neil Weber on November 18, 2013 at 1:14pm

It seems that the system is requiring you to enter your credit card number in order to register, however you will not be charged for tonights session, is that correct?

Just to clarify with regards to the registration page: You will need to select from BOTH menus to get the free teleseminar.

 Unfortunately, this is the only way for our amazing website and shopping cart designer to navigate the Go Daddy shopping cart options.  The FREE session is clearly marked and you will have to go through the selection menus (both of them) on the shopping cart - but you will not be charged when registering only for the November 18th complimentary teleseminar.

Thank you so much for clarifying the instructions on how to access the free seminar, which I could not find originally when I first checked on the registration. Yes, now it is clear and it does help!
