THE MAGIC OF DREAMS: A STUDY OF THE TRANSCENDENT FUNCTION


with Dr. Warren Sibilla, Jungian Analyst



In 1916, in the throes of his Red Book period, Carl Jung wrote an essay called The Transcendent Function. In this essay Jung delved into the workings of the unconscious, the transformative energy contained in images and symbols, as well as the means of accessing such energy through one's dreams.

 

Dr. Sibilla will guide us through this seminal essay while providing examples from Eastern teachings, such as Buddhist koans, as well as personal examples taken from his newly published book, “My Journey to Ironman: Endurance Sports as a Means of Individuation." He will explore how the Transcendent Function mediates the relationship between the conscious and unconscious, as well as how the life-transforming energy of dreams can be accessed and applied in one's path to individuation.

 

Participants will be afforded a front-row seat to the workings of the unconscious by witnessing how Dr. Sibilla's dreams manifested themselves in his life, especially during the course of his training to become a Jungian Analyst and participate in long distance endurance sports. Participants are encouraged to bring their own dreams to share and explore with the group.


Copies of Dr. Sibilla's book, “My Journey to Ironman: Endurance Sports as a Means of Individuation." will be available for sale.

FAIRY TALE STUDY EVENT


The Girl Without Hands


Who hasn’t remembered the experience of listening to a fairy tale as a child? Why were we so enthralled by these tales? Are these stories for adults or children? How do they differ from myths, legends and sagas? 


Carl Jung believed that Fairy Tales should be an important part of children’s lives. He also knew and understood the psychological importance of archetypal figures, shadow elements and transpersonal content that Fairy Tale stories bring to those who take the time to study them.


GCFJ will bring this Fairy Tale study opportunity directly to you through our October special event. 


GCFJ FAIRY TALE STUDY EVENT

DARK RELIGION:  FUNDAMENTALISM FROM THE 

PERSPECTIVE OF JUNGIAN PSYCHOLOGY


with Vlado Solc, M.S. LPC, Jungian Analyst



"What men have always named God is the unfathomable itself" C.G.Jung


In this workshop, we will explore the psychological phenomena and dynamics underlying conspiracy theories and Dark religion: how the Self influences the way the ego holds on to non-credible beliefs, including fundamentalist conspiracy theories. We will identify differences between spirituality and Dark religion, and consider the basic Jungian idea of numinosum.

Additionally, we will examine the unconscious dynamics of fundamentalism as an expression of ego's adherence to such theories, and review mythological and clinical parallels. Lastly, we will explore the phenomena of possession and identification; recognize basic characteristics of Dark religion; and understand where conspiracism and creed overlap.

Vlado Solc's recent book, "Dark Religion: Fundamentalism from the Perspective of Jungian Psychology" (2018) will be available for purchase. 


Date: Pending 2022
