Friday Evening Lecture: As a ship is tossed and turned by the actions of the sea, one has to quickly realize our vulnerability and susceptibility to nature’s ways. While we train as seafaring captains and use the latest navigational technologies, we are in the end, at the mercy of the sea. In the face of such utter power, there is little room for hubris.
So too in life, we often find the winds of psyche blowing through us as easily as hail blowing through the shattered remains of a broken window. No buffer, no restraint, we are vulnerable to the whims of the archetypes. At times, we experience the grace and benevolence of psyche, offering us the experience of transcendence, of a profound love and a deep sense of satisfaction with our life and work. And too, we find the storms of terror, of aggression, of addictions, of betrayal and acts of unimaginable abuse pummeling our homes, and stand at such moments, helpless to make it all stop it. We often hurt the ones we love, and betray our children and spouse, and all others who have come to trust us. Here we live estranged from psyche and Self. Yet as demons scream out, angels sing, and we hope, and pray for redemption. Redemption from those forces which have taken over our life, redemption allowing us to create a life in relationship to Self and Soul.
Through the presentation of clinical illustrations, stories and the world’s wisdom traditions, we will discuss our relationship to Self, Psyche and Soul, and ways to move towards redemption. The theme and material draws heavily on Dr. Conforti’s new book, entitled; Hidden Presence, Complexes, Possession and Redemption.
Saturday Workshop *: This workshop addresses our ongoing relationship with the archetypes of the collective unconscious, soul and redemption. Of special importance in this seminar will be an in-depth look at what C.G. Jung described as “Archetypal Possessions and Contagions”, which are all too common shapers of individual and collective behavior.
*Attendance at the Friday evening lecture is not required for participation in the Saturday workshop.
