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.

Summary: “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

Psychiatrist C.G. Jung was one of the first founders of analytic/depth psychology to be interested in meditation. After a brief review of Jung’s discoveries and psychodynamic methods, we will discuss mindfulness and its practices and how Jung’s approach combined with mindfulness meditation can enhance therapeutic outcomes. We will also explore the most recent research on mindfulness practices and their impact on the functions of the brain, as well as their effect on emotional, interpersonal, behavioral, cognitive and self-dysregulation. Jung’s approach will be used to show how experiencing, understanding, and accepting these meditative states can enhance the healing of deep psychological wounds.

Dreams often provide a stunningly accurate portrayal of one's inner life and the ways this is manifested in the outer world. So too, does the dream speak to the nature and strength of a client’s complexes and provides an orientation into the nature of the work needing to occur in treatment. Where Freud viewed the dream image as a means to activate the free associational process, Jung looked at the image more as a highly specific rendering of an innate personal and universal collective domain. The meaning of images serves as an "orientation marker" to help the therapist and patient understand the patient's life.

In this seminar, Dr Conforti will discuss the Jungian approach to dream imagery and present participants with what may be called an "ontological" and "archetypal” approach to dream symbols. In looking at actual dreams from clinical practice, we will explore the structure of the dream, from the opening scene (the Exposition) to the dream’s ending (the Lysis). We will seek to use dreams to better understand such clinical elements as the patient's diagnosis, the nature and strength of unresolved issues, and the therapeutic issues needing to be addressed.
