A Humble Heroine and Hero for Our Times
Presented by Pearl Mindell, MSW, Jungian Analyst


In my opinion, our modern times desperately need new images of what a true heroine and hero are. A humble heroine and hero are ordinary people who are able to stay grounded and persevere in what they inwardly know is true in the midst of life’s pressures and orientations. What sustains their ongoing commitment is that  they are guided by a Source… a larger context than their individual needs. Mary and Joseph, seemingly ordinary and humble people are asked by God/Source Energy to birth, nurture and protect a new evolution of consciousness in the being of Jesus Christ. To such an extraordinary request, Mary and Joseph, individually and jointly say ‘Yes’ and then willingly pay the personal costs of doing so. For me, Mary and Joseph represent a true humble heroine/ hero, who are inspiring and relevant for us today. Jungian Psychology offers us a way to jointly explore and be informed by this remarkable  mythic story. Together we can discover how it may enrich and apply to our lives.

Becoming Truly Yourself: The Instinct for Individuation
Presented by Dr. Phyllis Marie Jensen, Jungian Analyst Candidate

Individuation is a central concept of Jung's analytic 
psychology and a major theme of myth over time and folk-tales around the 
world. Individuation is a process, a never-completed goal of becoming 
conscious, of integrating the unconscious. In tonight's presentation, we 
explore the concept of individuation, and the meaning and challenge of
 the individuation process unfolding in our lives.

Jungian Psychology: In Service to What?
Presented by John Hoedl, MA, Jungian Analyst

As Bob Dylan sang: "Well, it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord, but you're gonna have to serve somebody."

Who does Jung's Psychology "serve?"

This lecture examines some of the fundamental assumptions and attitudes of Jungian Psychology and how it compares with the contemporary plethora of psychological approaches. Questions such as the following will be discussed: What is Jungian analysis? How did Jung come to develop his approach to psychology? Why is it important today?

A Sense of Touch: "The Handless Maiden" and related stories
Presented by Rillah Sheridan Carson, PhD

According to Robert Johnson, Jungian analyst and author, the story of The Handless Maiden speaks to "our wounded feeling function, probably the most common and painful wound" in the modern world. A wound so common that hardly anyone knows there is a problem. Burdened with an improverished feeling function means we have little sense of what is valuable or worthy in our lives.

Waiting for the Soul
Presented by Dr. Zelkjo Matijevic, Jungian Analyst

How often have you heard someone say,"I want to do something for my spiritual side"? In 1928, C.G. Jung looked at this very question, writing an essay entitled "The Spiritual Problem of Modern Man". Eighty years later, we ask ourselves how we are coming along with this problem.

During this presentation, we will explore how soul work and spiritual work are different from one another - yet connected. We will begin to see why we have to wait for the soul and why this waiting is important for each of us.
