"C G Jung's The Red Book or Liber Novus: a Lecture and discussion"

The publication in late 2009 of Carl Jung's Red Book has set the field of Jungian studies and Analytical Psychology abuzz. Suddenly, we have a new source for insight into what we've read in Jung’s Collected Works, Memories, Dreams, Reflections and elsewhere. The Red Book was like Jung’s private diary from 1914 to 1930. The pages, never published and unavailable to the public until now, contain his own words and hand-drawn pictures of his inner journey and struggles. We can see how he recovered his soul and founded a psychology.

This lecture and discussion is suited to all interested persons, from novice to advanced, and whether you have a copy of the book yet or not. The lecture will particularly note the wellsprings of Jung’s psychological theories in his own experiences as detailed in the Red Book. Laurie, with his degrees in Religious Studies and interest in Gnosticism, will particularly focus on what the Red Book reveals of Jung’s spiritual journey and the legacy for us of his ideas of spirituality.

"The Green Man : an Archetypal image of Masculine Oneness with Nature"

Images of the "foliated face of a man" or a "green man" are found in many places around the world and from different time periods. The Green Man continues to appear in modern peoples' dreams and in modern rituals. This masculine archetypal image of oneness with Nature is intriguing to both men and women. It has been suggested that the Green Man mediates between our imaginative world and the physical world. And that he may be the source of inspiration for our creative endeavours. This lecture explores the stories, images and meaning of this archetype.

"The Gnostic Jung"

How do we know what we know? What is truth? The Greek word gnosis translates as “knowledge” or “insight.” Gnosticism, past and present, is a system that explores the alienation of people from their true selves.

Jung ‘discovered’ Gnosticism early in his career but continued to write about it into the late 1950s. Jung viewed Gnostic myths as expressing psychological meaning and he considered the Gnostics to be psychologists exploring the unconscious.

Friday October 12, 2007 "Active Imagination Explained"   

The truly Jungian technique of active imagination is one of the most powerful tools utilized in analysis. It is a method to raise into consciousness those contents that lie immediately below the threshold of the unconscious. This lecture will explain this practical method at both the beginner and advanced stages, and also how it can be used by people not in analysis.

Friday, April 13, 2007        "Synchronicity Explained"                  

We have probably all experienced meaningful events or coincidences that did not seem to obey the rules of causality, space or time.  Jung developed the concept of synchronicity to help us understand a connecting principle that links the material world with the psychic or psychological world.  In tonight's lecture, Jung’s ideas on synchronicity and the ways it may be of
therapeutic value will be discussed.

Jung’s theory of archetypes stands as one of his most basic concepts, yet it remains generally misunderstood. Tonight’s mini-lecture will explain Jung’s ideas about archetypes and archetypal images. Slides will be used to illustrate typical motifs that we find in dreams, religion, art, literature and culture. 

Saturday October 16, 2004  "Art Therapy Workshop"  

Friday  October 15, 2004   "The Symbolic Attitude"   at Michener Institute, Toronto. 

This lecture will take a closer look at Jung’s view of the way that symbols form within our psyches. We’ll then consider what Jung calls the “symbolic attitude.” Jung says that the symbolic attitude is “a definite view of the world which assigns meaning to events, and attaches to this meaning a greater value than to bare facts.” This lecture will serve as a practical guide to show you how you can work to develop a symbolic attitude in your everyday life.
