September 15, 2017 - September 16, 2017

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.

Technology is moving forward at an exponential pace. The standard of material living is gradually rising in the industrialized and developing nations. We are exploring and exploiting the treasures of Mother Earth, sometimes enhancing but more often depleting the resources for our grandchildren and future generations.

What kind of legacy are we leaving for future generations? As individuals, families, and communities, what emotional ledger sheet are we leaving for the future? Who will retire the consequences of karma we leave behind, when we leave this life with unfinished business? LEARNING OBJECTIVES Summarize the basics of the understanding and the assessment of your Family Karma Discuss the dynamics of your relationship patterns that depict the underlying Family Karma Examine the authenticity of your career choices and how your Family Karma impacts these Present the Kundalini Yoga perspective on understanding your Family Karma Articulate the role of Genograms on assessing and retiring your Family Karma Explain the role of the family legends, rumours, fantasies, fascinations, family tragedies and roots on the workings of your Family Karma Illustrate with clinical vignettes the workings of Family Karma.

Interpretation of Dreams: a Jungian Perspective To Register: Click on the link below   http://jungchicago.org/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=404 Product Code: AG-Bedi-Dreams-2018 Availability: Available $165.00 AVAILABLE OPTIONS CEs (PhD, PsyD, LPC, LCPC, LMFT, LCSW) I want to add CEs (+$15.00) CEs: Enter your license number Description Jungian Interpretation of Dreams Sept 28 2018 Dreams are a portal to the soul. They have been consulted since antiquity to guide us. There is reference to the use of dreams in the Old Testament. Sigmund Freud put the use of dreams in the analysis of the unconscious in his classic work – The Interpretation of Dreams. Carl Jung took the interpretation of Dreams to a whole new threshold, not just to unlock the past but the guide the future course of our lives – The Teleologic dimension of dreams. He emphasized the subjective, objective, diagnostic, prognostic, the Teleologic and the great significance of the Initial and other Big dreams in guiding the course of the therapeutic work and the individuation process. When beginning to interpret a dream, Jung suggested that we ask the question: what conscious attitude does the dream compensate?  Jung believed that dreams are “to be regarded with due seriousness as an actuality that has to be fitted into the conscious attitude as a codetermining factor” (Jung, CW 16).   This seminar on Analytic Technique will pursue this and other questions concerning the use of dreams in clinical practice. The class discussions will focus on the theoretical ideas outlined in the required readings as well as the dreams presented by participants from their clinical practices.  This seminar will also provide a forum within which candidates can apply the theoretical concepts being explored in their other classes to the process of working with dreams.…

Jungian Rendering of the Sufi Path to Individuation Ashok Bedi, MD Friday, November 2, 2018 │ 8:30am-5pm Scriptures, myths, fairy tales, legends, artistic creations of different cultures and religions embody the shared archetypal wisdom and forms the building blocks of the Collective Psyche and the shared heritage and crucial data base of human civilization. Jung emphasized the critical importance of exploring divergent cultures other then own host culture to get multi-dimensional understanding of the human condition. This permits a better clinical management of our patient’s suffering by offering a broader repertoire of archetypal substrate to draw from. Jung explored the Sufi tradition as embodied in the 18th Sura of Koran a the 1939 Eranos Conference. We will explore the 18th Sura of Koran to unpack the Mystical Sufi path to Individuation. This will be further amplified by Jung’s Red Book, Clinical vignettes and a Swirling Dervishes movie clip. Required Reading   - org/quran/frames/ch18.html.

January 16 - February 2

In our Collective, we are at the cusp of an Enantodromia – a return to the Opposite from Patriarchal culture to the Return of the Goddess. Though Carl Jung’s central contribution was about the Feminine Psyche and the Anima function, in his inner work as depicted in his Red Book, he was ambivalent about the feminine as embodied by Salome – a controversial figure in the Biblical rendering. Let the land of the Goddess Kali, Durga and the Great Mother Shakti light your path to the mystery of the Soul and the emerging archetypes to guide the Collective Consciousness in our troubled and chaotic time. Join us in this magical encounter with the Goddess Soul of India from Orissa to Kolkata to the country side of Karnataka outside Bangalore. Explore the former British capital Kolkata before it was moved to New Delhi in 1911. Discover its colonial heritage and revolutionary rebellions, sailing on the Brahmaputra and Hoogly rivers, visiting Durga and Kali temples where they become alive. We stay at Rajbari Bawali, a regal heritage mansion in the Bengali countryside located along the Ganges river banks. We will explore the Village Goddess with spiritual walks and boat rides on the holy river. The Golden Triangle of Bhubaneswar, Puri and Konark let’s us explore Hindu temples and Buddhist caves, many dating back to the 7AD, including the famous Unesco Heritage Sun Temple and the Jagannath Temple.   The journey concludes with a five day Jungian retreat with Dr. Bedi’s lectures at Shreyas Retreat www.shreaysretreat.com focusing on Goethe’s Faust and the Faustian Bargain with the Devil. He will explore the Eastern paradigm to deal with the Shadow in the Archetypes of the Ten Avatars of God Vishnu…
