Hearing Voices: When the Unconscious Calls

Auditory hallucination is common according to Daniel B. Smith. In “Can You Live With the Voices in Your Head?”, Peter D. Kramer’s summary of Smith’s 2007 book, Muses, Madmen, and Prophets: Rethinking the History, Science and Meaning of Auditory Hallucination (Penguin Press), Kramer summarizes Smith’s data. Though many of us in the mainstream associate hearing voices with pathology, 39 percent of healthy volunteers said they had heard their own thoughts aloud. Another 13 percent of those who…

Why cars are very bad

“Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.”
-Leonardo da Vinci.

Nature is no longer of our concern, as humans – at least for a majority of humans that take part in todays environmental meltdown, which has burned (like the fuel in a combustion engine) for the past 100+ years.  The modern citizen in…

A Jungian in Hollywood

My main work in the psychology field has been working with blocked artists of all kinds. It's difficult work, not least because the block is so painful.

By the time most get to me, they have developed an elaborate system to avoid the pain -- like drinking, having lots of sex and innumerable other compulsive activities.

A recent article in the New Yorker describes…

Charlie Sheen: the crack-up of America the Puer


As I’ve explained many times, I don’t watch TV, so the Charlie Sheen brouhaha didn’t enter my awareness until a few days ago when I came across the above  video.  Then I Googled and found a zillion articles and video clips in which every mental health professional on the planet, like Dr. Drew, proffers an explanation of Sheen’s…

Reality of the Psyche

by Deldon Anne McNeely

In 1965, Jolande Jacobi, Jung’s colleague, wrote The Way of Individuation, now a classic. We can use it as a source for delving into questions that speak to us a half-century later. During that half-century the blooming of modernism, post-modernism, and post-post-modern thought raised questions and nuances that color and complicate our images of individuation as presented by Jacobi.

Jung saw himself as a scientific observer of human behavior,… Continue

Neuroscientists Working to Develop Drugs that Erase Painful Memories---What do You Think?

I just watched a 3-minute video that made me very uncomfortable. It discusses how neuroscience doctors are working to develop drug treatments that could erase traumatic memories form people's minds. In a country where 1 in 5 veterens come home suffering PTSD or depression--or perhaps in the wake of a massive natural disaster like the Japan quake and tsunami (not to mention Chile, Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and so many others)--revolutionary drug treatment like this could ease pain and…

When therapy is all about the money

Is talk therapy going silent?

Not entirely, but the Saturday edition of the New York Times featured an article entitled “Talk Doesn’t Pay, So Psychiatry Turns Instead to Drug Therapy.” This is very old news to anyone in the mental health field — as a patient or practitioner. But it’s good to see that The Times has noticed.…

C.G. Jung: Archeologist of the Psyche, Explorer of the Soul, Adventurer of the Imagination

Where others had been too timid to travel, where many had been too short sighted to envision, where few had been resourcefulness to return: Jung was there. His impulse to discovery lead him to territories of taboo that where and have been too extreme for a great deal of our mainstream psychologists. He was interested in Tarot, astrology, physics, magic, the occult, UFOs,…
