Patterns in Complexes and Archetypes


Lisa Maechling Debbeler, JD, MA.

Jungian Analyst in Training

"The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security

and calm which is not easily disturbed ......."  C.G. Jung

This workshop will explore adult family dynamics from the point of view of Jungian complexes and archetypes.  We will consider how siblings influence each other both in the formation of their fundamental character and in the areas of life that become complex and shadow.  We will examine how sibling conflicts can sometimes evoke more intense pain than conflicts with other people.

Beyond adult siblings, we will explore the dynamics of estrangement and attachment.  How do we manage uncomfortable feelings if our adult children disappoint us?  What if we think it necessary to distance ourselves as adults from toxic parents?  When does our individuation point toward a break with the family, and when does our growth suggest greater  tolerance of differences?

The workshop will suggest ways to make the adult experience of extended family more satisfying  and less conflictual, and we will hold that with the tension of knowing that family conflicts will endure no matter how "enlightened" we become.

Robert Cunningham, Ph.D.  Jungian Analyst

"From the beginning I had a sense of destiny, as though my life

 was assigned to me by fate and had to be fulfilled"....C.G.Jung

The meaning and purpose of life is to live one's unique destiny.  The focus of this lecture is to explore the meaning of personal destiny and its dynamic in our life journey. 

We will consider Jung's concept of voca, the experience of calling; the role of the will in our journey towards wholeness; the will of the Self in pulling us toward our destiny; the experience of wholeness and the forces that would deny us our destiny; and finally the psyche's view of the meaning of death as an essential part of destiny

We will draw on Jung's life story, dreams, and personal narratives to stimulate our exploration and discussion.
