‘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?

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.

Drawing Projections: Jung and Films

This seminar aims to explore psychological themes through the visual narrative structures of selected films. We will focus on a common theme in therapy: anger. We will view three films in order to discuss the personal and archetypal patterns of anger as seen through the eye of the camera.
The films will be shown at ISAP and will be followed by discussions led by the presenters. We wish to provide the opportunity of the collective experience of viewing a film in a group setting, followed by the chance to share ideas and impressions.

The Helper’s Predicament: A Jungian Exploration of Helping Others

Helping others or the role of the helper is widely respected and highly regarded. Helping is often considered the “right” thing to do; it is an honorable act. Is there no negative potential in helping others? Does helping never inflict harm? What is the cost of being the helper? This course explores the persona and the shadow of the social worker, the physician, and the psychotherapist/analyst.

Biunity

The concept of biunity is introduced to explain the roles of knower (observer) and known (object of observation) in Ibn ‘Arabî’s Sufism , C.G. Jung’s Analytical Psychology and John von Neumann’s Quantum Theory. The concepts and the logic involved in this comparison have implications for the phenomena of psychogenic death, psychogenic healing and psychotherapy.

Analysis of Fairy Tales in Analytic Practice by Enacting the Fairy Tale

We want to enact a fairy tale through role-play. Participants slip into the role of a fairy tale figure in order to get into the spirit of the fairy tale, to experience it in a deeper manner and to become aware of the deeper levels of their personal psyche. In identifying with the fairy tale figure one can experience the archetypal forces and the subjective level of the fairy tale for one’s self. I will bring some fairy tales, but it will be the group’s choice which fairy tale we work with.

The Hidden Pathways of Germanic Mythology

The lectures offer an overview of Germanic mythology within the context of Indo-European cultures. I will be focusing on the old Germanic world view, the creation of the world, the dawn of the gods and the psychological role of some of the most significant gods and goddesses. Much of what is called modernity is based on old Germanic culture and mythology. Connecting with hidden roots is an essential aspect of individuation. Particular attention will be paid to female characters in Germanic mythology.

David Blum Paintings Celebration

In spring of 2024 Sarah Blum donated a sequence of 43 oil-based crayon paintings—her late husband David Blum’s psychological legacy—to ISAPZURICH. This illuminating series is this autodidactic painter’s self- explorative journey, his individuation process, as he grapples with cancer. Through his dreams he meets his inner guide, a Wise Old Dog, his own inner wisdom, that supports and comforts him on his ultimate transformative journey.
This course is comprised of six short lectures:

Multicultural Analysis: Bridging Worlds

In the analytic setting an encounter with cultural wounds and traumas is intertwined with the patient’s personal history, shadow dynamics, cultural complexes in the therapeutic dyad, as well as transference and countertransference. Multicultural therapy (i.e. choosing a therapist from another culture) will be discussed. The peculiarities of speaking a second language will be discussed with special attention to transference and countertransference. The participants will be invited to look at various meanings and archetypal images that an analyst from another culture may have for their patients.

How Humans Mourn: A Cross-Cultural Examination of Death Rituals

This is a two-semester course. Part I begins in Autumn 2024, and will focus on the ethnological comparison of death rituals and a variety of customs such as those related to the disposition of the body, the notions of soul and an afterlife, and the cultural attitudes surrounding the ongoing relationship of the living to the dead.
Part II will be held in Spring 2025 and will focus on how culture influences the individual and collective experiences of mourning and bereavement.

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.

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.

Called or Uncalled? A Jungian Approach to a Spirituality after the Spiritual Turn

Jung views spirituality (“Geistigkeit”) not only as an intellectual but also as an experiential quest that can be understood as being seized by the numinous qualities of the spirit archetype. Healing involves achieving or regaining a “religious attitude” that cannot be achieved by mere conformity to religious institutions or by the ritual consumption of psychedelic drugs (“entheogens” that bring forth the inner god). How can we understand this religious/spiritual attitude in today’s world which is characterized by a “spiritual turn”, i.e. an individual search for meaning, connectedness and transcendence?

Say it with a Song – Archetypal Motifs in Rock, Pop and Folk Music

There must be a suitable song for every conceivable human situation—love, hatred, passion, loss, triumph, defeat, life and death, friendship, betrayal. In pop songs we encounter archetypal figures in many different appearances—the great mother, the hero, the wise elder, the mysterious stranger, the lover... We will examine pop and folk songs that are important for the participants, and try to discover the archetypal motifs and complexes they contain. We will also discuss other songs that illustrate certain archetypes or complexes.

Jung and Kernberg: The Same Idea in Different Words

Contrary to what many think, Jung had a definite notion of object relations; he formulated perhaps the first thorough description of the ego’s relation to internal objects. Kernberg’s descriptions of object relations bear similarities to aspects of Jung’s. The question is then whether they treated object relations similarly or differently. This lecture will explore the similarities and differences.

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.

Depression as regression of libido into the unconscious, understood as a process fundamental to individuation, is a core concept in Jung’s theories. We will review and deepen our understanding of this process and how to support and work with it as an analyst. Then we will look at the current understanding of ‘clinical depression’ as a physiological and psychiatric illness. We will proceed to examine recent discoveries in neuroscience which support Jung’s theories, and discuss Jaak Panksepp’s Affective Neuroscience theory which helps to diagnose and discuss depression.

Mending the Soul: Psychosis as a Way of Living

We will discuss autobiographies, videos, books and research papers on the therapy of psychosis, especially schizophrenia, that show how analytic psychotherapy can heal enough to enable patients to live an independent life. We may have time to look at some Art Brut paintings as illustrations.

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 traces the development of the European psyche throughout the Christian era, addresses the problem of evil and the Antichrist, and finds an explanation for the Utopian mass psychoses which still trouble us today.

Love’s Work

“All reality is iconoclastic. The earthly beloved, even in this life, incessantly triumphs over your mere idea of her.”
– C.S. Lewis in Grief Observed
We will explore the theme of Otherness in relation to the beloved. What or who is the beloved? Is he/she inner or outer? What happens in the space between myself and the other? How do I differentiate between the ideal and the reality of the other person, between the Other in my psyche that still keeps me enclosed within my own universe and the outer Other who forces me to open myself to the new and unexpected?

Richard Wagner’s Parsifal: Trauma and the Individuation Process

This module will analyse the psychological resonance of Richard Wagner’s musical drama Parsifal, showing how it depicts the perils and rewards of the individuation process and the metamorphosis of consciousness through confrontation with the shadow and anima/animus. A key focus will be representations of personal and collective trauma in Parsifal, and the ways in which the text and musical symbolism evoke similar phenomena encountered in clinical practice.

The Value of Being Broken

The feeling of being ‘broken’ during psychic fragmentation is often accompanied by numinous experiences and unconscious experiences of identification with one’s surroundings.
I will discuss the concept of fragmentation, which is based on the psyche’s property of dissociability. We will also look at the way in which fragmentation and numinosity appear in conscious and unconscious material.
Lastly, through a discourse on the fairy tale “Jorinde and Joringel” we will contemplate fragmentation as an individuation path.

Living Meaningfully

We will explore ways in which the individuation journey is a pilgrimage which asks for authenticity, differentiation, integrity, and resilience. It is a journey of becoming who we are meant to be, reflecting creatively on insights from the unconscious, discovering our unique path, and responding to that which lies deepest within.
