Pauli Jung Letters 1932-1958 : Jung's friendship/ collaboration with  Wolfgang Pauli

Wolfgang Pauli, a towering figure in 20th century physics, contacted Jung in 1930 during a time of personal crisis about the possibility of his undergoing analysis. This was the
beginning of  a friendship and collaboration between the two that only ended with Pauli's death in 1958. Their interesting correspondence has been published as "Atom and Archetype: the Pauli-Jung Letters 1932-1958" edited by C.A. Meier---Princeton University Press. These letters and commentary on them in a number of books will be the basis of the discussion.

Rethinking the Gender Issue using C.G. Jung’s Concept of Contrasexual Archetypes.

This seminar will explore the masculine and feminine issues as experienced by today’s women and men in the light of feminism and current research in sociology, anthropology and analytical psychology. I shall try to demonstrate that after decades of women’s movements and economic and other progress, C.G. Jung’s concept of the animus and anima remains the best available comprehensive tool to understand the psychological complexities of the gender issue.

The Mindful Jung

We must get at the Eastern values from within and not from without, seeking them in ourselves, in the unconscious. We shall then discover how great is our fear of the unconscious and how formidable are our resistances. Because of these resistances we doubt…the self-liberating power of the introverted mind. Jung, CW11:773

Jung developed an elaborate view of the manifestations of the Self as they occur in archetypes and complexes. But less was said about the unmanifest, the Absolute, the pure and formless ground of being from which creation and manifestations arise. We will explore Jung’s mindful approach to the psyche, and how it may also lead to a transformative coniunctio experience with sunyata, known by Buddhists as emptiness. Experiencing and acceptance of formless and empty states is crucial for the healing of deep wounds and for surviving life’s many existential crises.

DREAMS AND THE ECLIPSE OF GOD AND THE CREATIVE UNCONSCIOUS: How Personal Complexes and Personal Meaning Often Silence the Archetypal Message in Dreams and Life

To pray is to dream in league with God -Abraham Joshua Heschel We long for and are terrified to hear the voice of God. This voice provides such an honest commentary and reflection
on how we are living and an intimation of a destiny waiting in potentia. So, too, is there an all-too-human need to silence this voice.It is in God’s warning to not make “graven images,” and Rabbi Heschel’s frustration with our attempts to build a religion out of our personal preferences both speaks to the archetypal tendency to look away from God and the Self and in
its place to totemize personal needs and conscious biases. Our collective, modern approach to dreams captures this eternal struggle to clearly listen to and act in accordance with the wisdom of the Psyche, and our denial of these messages.

The dream reveals a truth about life and an inherent meaning not to be muted by individual perception and consciousness. Often the dream’s a priori, archetypal meaning is eclipsed by our personal complexes and reactions to it, thus rending what is sacred and eternal to the secular and profane.

This weekend program will speak to the relationship between the archetypal and personal meaning of dream images, and the symbolic representation of archetypal and personal complexes in dreams and our associations to them. Dreams from clinical practice, the Bible, and from historical figures will be presented to illustrate this theme. Attendance on Friday night is not prerequisite to attendance on Saturday
