JUNG IN IRELAND 2015 – RESILIENCE, HOPE, & THE GIFT OF ADVERSITY

April 19, 2015 @ 8:00 am - April 26, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Join us in County Kerry, affectionately known in Ireland as “God’s Kingdom.” Located in southwest Ireland and facing the Atlantic Ocean, it features the famed Dingle and Iveragh Peninsulas. Our 2015 Seminar will be based in the town of Killarney, County Kerry’s most vibrant town. In this seminar, we will explore the themes of resilience and hope and how the experience of adversity, although unwelcome, nevertheless has the potential to enrich our lives and turn our so-called lead into gold. Our week includes the option to join in two unique excursions: a journey to the Iveragh Peninsula guided by renowned Irish archaeologist Michael Gibbons, and an outing to the remote and rarely visited Beara Peninsula – led by Celtic expert Rob Vance. What is resilience? Is it something we are born with or can it be developed? Why is it that some of us are able to bounce back after a major setback, often becoming stronger, while others cannot seem to survive life’s disappointments. Some of us are able to overcome adversity, lack of success in life, and rejection in relationships yet not allow it to forever define our lives. Notwithstanding catastrophe, a devastating trauma, or the kind of personal tragedy that may scar us forever, some of us may utilize adversity to grow, find spiritual meaning, and enhance our lives. Does resilience mean forgiving God, our parents, or others for our personal tragedies and pain? In the face of adversity, can acceptance help us move on, change, create new visions, goals, and create a more meaningful outlook on life? Examples abound of famous individuals overcoming adversity and setbacks in life – including artists, influential world figures, performers, athletes and authors. Well-known people like Victor…

Growing Older: Navigating Uncharted Waters – APRIL 9–16, 2016 COUNTY GALWAY

April 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - April 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Growing Older: Navigating Uncharted Waters According to many schools of psychology, the development of our personality takes shape between birth and adolescence—or early adulthood at the latest. However, for Jung, our development does not remain fixed and is capable of continued growth. As he describes it, we can, and should, keep developing and individuating throughout our life cycle. The important point to remember is that during any major shift in our development, life does not continue as it has always been. We must be ready to make changes and adapt if we are to remain psychologically and physically healthy. Recent research has shown that the human brain can remain active, creative, and highly functional during our later years. Too often, we forget that our mental and spiritual health is less a matter of fate than it is a matter of choice. We can either shrink from life, or enlarge it by engaging the passions of our soul, mining the richness of our true Self, and living the life we truly want to live. The importance of self-reflection and personal growth is paramount at any stage of our lives but is all the more so as we move into our later years, when we should ask ourselves, in different ways than we might have before: What is the meaning of our lives? What has it been until now, and what will it take to remain true to our Self and find meaning in our lives during this later stage? Through a combination of presentations, workshops, sharing, dialogue, and discussion led by a distinguished and experienced faculty, the focus of this seminar will be to help us explore this vital and all important period of our lives.…

Election 2016 – An Archetypal Perspective

September 16, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Grace Place 637 S. Dearborn Ave, Chicago, IL, IL United States + Google Map

Panel: Achilles & Athena Ashok Bedi, MD Lynne Copp, PhD Victoria Drake, PhD September 16, 25pm The current election atmosphere in the USA is profoundly challenging and confusing as we face one of the most disruptively polarizing times in our political sphere ever. How could we deepen the seeming oppositional energies embodied by our two party system to explore what they might be asking of us, mirroring for us, as a collective? One way through this chaotic field is to open up the mythic perspectives of Achilles and Athena to inquire what they have to say for our time in the 21st century. In this communal discussion we will explore the mythological roots of the 2016 presidential campaigns in order to deepen our understanding of the polarizing energies emerging in our country and to imagine ways beyond them. September 16, 25pm Grace Place 637 S. Dearborn Ave, Chicago, IL MAP $30 at the door There is no RSVP or preregistration for this event. Payments will be accepted at the event. Cash or check only.

Jung on the Hudson 2017

July 16 @ 8:00 am - July 21 @ 5:00 pm

The ability to self-reflect and be honest with oneself is a key to one’s emotional health and individuation process. This crucial component is important at any stage of life but all the more so as we age and want to feel that our lives have meaning. As we grow older, it is imperative to keep in mind that life will not continue as it has until now. Physically and psychologically, we are changing. Welcome or not, our bodies transmit messages that we need to be attuned to; and our psyches and our souls require equal attention. We can face these demands and push ourselves into uncomfortable terrain, or ignore what may be our last opportunity to move forward. As we enter later life, we should ask ourselves what we want to save and what we want to let go of and if there is any unfinished business that we have avoided addressing. Are there friends, family, loved ones, or life partners toward whom we still hold grudges? Have we truly worked through our own shadow issues? Have we learned to accept ourselves and appreciate our talents and the blessings in our lives? Have we been paying attention to our dreams? Are they different in substance as we grow older? Now that there are fewer years ahead of us and time is more valuable in many ways, is it healthier to sever connections with those who have hurt us and who surround us with negative energy? Or should we use this time to make amends and try to repair relationships that have gone awry? Are there goals we once aspired to but have not met? Is there a book we still are hoping to write, an…

Ashok Bedi, M.D. Path to the Soul: The Eastern Path to the Individuation September 15, Friday Lecture 7:30 pm members: $20; non-members $25; students $10 September 16, Saturday Workshop 10:00 am – 5:00 pm members: $60; non-members $70; students $50 (includes lecture)

September 15 - September 16

Jung’s Analytical Psychology draws heavily from the Eastern Spiritual Traditions. In his Magnum Opus—the Mysterium Coniunctionis, Jung presented his highest synthesis of the Alchemy of the Individuation process. These include Alchemic movement from Unio Naturalis, Unio Mentalis, Unio Spiritualis, and Unio Corporalis to Unus Mundus. This presentation will explore the Eastern perspective on the Individuation process amplifying each of these stages from an Eastern perspective. These will be further explored with Archetypes of the Eastern and Hindu traditions and clinical material. Time permitting, we will engage the archetypes of the Hindu Trinity of Brahma and Sarasvati, the creators, Vishnu and Laxmi- the Preserves of consciousness and Shiva and Shakti—the destroyers of the Shadow making room for creation of New Consciousness. Basics of Kundalini Yoga as the archetype of higher Coniunctio may be explored.
