A Deeper Look Into Archetypes

The concept of archetype has been popularized in recent decades, sometimes leading to a generalized or superficial understanding. Archetypes are too often held conceptually without deeper, related experience. Yet according to Jung, archetype... “can be truly understood only if experienced as an autonomous entity.” (CWVII, ¶184) Distinguishing between ego identity and the mystical guest who enters the doorway of one’s being is a practice that enables the I/Thou relationship. “The better we understand the archetype,” Jung writes, “the more we participate in its life and the more we realize its eternity or timelessness.” (CW18, ¶1572)
Part lecture, part practical application, we will delve into the topic of archetype theoretically and experientially, working with the archetype of the circle as it effects conscious perception and body awareness.

15:00–16:45

Ian McCabe, PhD
Original Documents from the Archives Relating to Correspondence between Jung and Bill Wilson (AA)
The first part of the seminar will examine previously unpublished historical documents from the archives which show Jung’s connection to Bill Wilson, the founder of AA, from 1926 to 1961. Their correspondence includes Bill Wilson explaining his own personal use of LSD and of using it as treatment to induce a spiritual experience in alcoholics. Also included is correspondence from Margarita Luttichau, a student of both Jung and Wilson, to whom Jung gave “extraordinarily complete instruction” about how to apply the AA group methodology to “general neurotics”.
The second part will explain how to treat alcoholism from a Jungian perspective; including the clinical diagnosis of alcoholism, motivating a person into treatment and prevention of relapse.
Participants will be encouraged to discuss a case and raise questions about coping with active alcoholism among clients and family members.

Friday, 22 May

10:00–11:45

Kathrin Schaeppi, MS, MFA
Searching for Soul
In the Red Book Jung writes, “I had to become aware that I had lost my soul.” What is soul? What may it feel like when connection is lost? How might soul searching and reconnection take place? Loss and recovery of soul will be explored and illuminated through Jung’s personal experience.
