Workshop with Stephen Kenneally, MBA, MFT
January 21, 2012
Jung’s concept of the Self speaks directly to the mysterious element in the psyche that inspires and brings meaning to our lives. Fifty years after Jung’s death, it remains an elusive and controversial subject. In this interactive workshop we will review various ways of thinking about the Self, the numinous as well as the dark side, so that we can better relate to the emergent forces in us that can lead to individuation, meaning, and the development of our personalities.
We will examine some archetypal material that illuminates this process, and we will explore Jung’s concepts of the opposites that are held in the Self. We will also look into the role of the shadow, the animus/anima, dreams, and active imagination in the process of relating to the Self.
