International School of Analytical Psychology Zurich

Jungian Keynotes
In-depth explorations of key aspects of Analytical Psychology

Jungian Keynotes is a series of eight lectures at the start of each new semester for both ISAP students and the public. This series is not an introduction to Analytical Psychology per se but offers a short introduction followed by an in-depth exploration of a key aspect of Jungian psychology. The lectures will highlight a different aspect each semester. ISAP’s teaching program is not, and cannot be, structured as a linear progression of levels or a tidy division into topics. Analytical Psychology is intrinsically holistic, so learning is by a process akin to osmosis.

Jungian Keynotes – September 2024
Jung’s Special Passions

Image

Throughout his life, Jung had a number of special passions that inspired and became key parts of his concept of the psyche. This lecture series highlights some of these, beginning with an encounter with spirits that Jung documented in The Red Book, exemplifying his confrontation with the unconscious. Next, a 16th Century alchemical text on Mercurius—the individuation principle—serves to introduce Jung’s approach to alchemy. The third and fourth lectures investigate the implications of the archetype of redemption or restoration to wholeness as a compelling image of global health, and a psychiatric view of The Red Book, underlining how the transformation of inner figures can heal the psyche. The next two lectures explore Jung’s lifelong struggle with the problem of evil and his encounter with alchemy as he compared his clients' unconscious material with alchemical treatises. The seventh lecture shows how Jung’s experiences in Africa were relevant for his concept of the psyche and for himself. The final lecture presents Jung’s Aion, in which he traced the development of the European psyche throughout the Christian era.

All Jungian Keynotes lectures will be on-site and broadcast live on Zoom. You can purchase Zoom attendance below on this page. See our Zoom Lectures page for more details.

Andreas Schweizer, Dr. theol.
06 02 Lecture | C.G. Jung and the
Septem Sermones ad Mortuos: “God is not dead. He is alive as ever. God is creation.” (The Red Book, “Scrutinies”)
It was on a Sunday, January 16, 1916 when C.G. Jung had the strange feeling that his house was filled with ghostly entities; it was as if it had begun to be haunted. The night before three of his children had had similar experiences. In the afternoon the whole house was crammed full of spirits of the dead. Then the dead suddenly cried out: “We have come back from Jerusalem where we found not what we sought.” This is the beginning of the Septem Sermones ad Mortuos which Jung wrote in a few nights after the experience of haunting in his house. It is a text full of wisdom and beauty.

Regine Schweizer-Vüllers, PhD
06 03 Lecture | Healing the Dragon – Mercurius as a Spirit of the Earth

In the so-far untranslated alchemical text from the 16th century treatise “Tractatus aureus” Mercurius appears as a poisonous dragon who never sleeps and resides in a fiery mountain. The dragon must be healed by a remedy consisting of various ingredients. If the healing succeeds, the alchemist can enter the mountain on the top of which he will find the precious stone. This lecture offers a psychological interpretation of the parable as an introduction to C.G. Jung’s approach to alchemy.

Scott William Hyder, lic. phil.
01 05 Lecture | ‘Worldwide Redemption’ – Reflections on the History, Aspirational Promise and Existential Peril of an Archetype

The archetype of worldwide redemption—restoration to wholeness—has been envisaged throughout history. Jung refers to it in many of his writings as ‘apocatastasis’. The hopes and the difficulties associated with this compelling image of global health will be examined. Attention will be paid to spiritual, material, romantic and pragmatic elements of the symbol of relational integrity as they pertain to the planet as well as to the Self. Which attitudes and behaviors obstruct and which further collective individuation, the evolution of the human species?

Heike Weis Hyder, FMH Psychiatrie/Psychotherapie
10 06 Lecture | The Urgency of Psychodynamic Discoveries in
The Red Book for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy
We shall be looking at the development of the inner core of the psyche as it unfolds in Jung’s Red Book from the viewpoint of psychiatry, in particular the transformation of the ego and other inner figures. Jung’s insights into these processes offer a key for healing resonance of soul, love and life, which is greatly needed in today’s world.

Ann Chia-Yi Li, MA
01 08 Lecture | Revisiting Jung’s Encounter with Alchemy

Jung attempted to understand the nature of the psyche by comparing his clients’ unconscious material with symbolic images from alchemical treatises. In this presentation we will proceed in Jung’s footsteps as he studies various alchemical treatises. By following his twists and turns we hope to glimpse the unfolding of his understanding of the connections between psyche and alchemy.

Jody Schlatter, Dr. med.
11 11 Lecture |
Aion: Development of the Self through the Age of Pisces
After his heart attack and near-death experience, Jung returned to three of his life’s major passions: Gnostic, alchemical and Christian symbols of the Self. In Aion he traced the development of the European psyche throughout the Christian era, addresses the problem of evil and the Antichrist, and found an explanation for the Utopian mass psychoses which still trouble us today.
