          JUNG AND ZEN BUDDHISM

Understanding Individuation and Enlightenment

with

Warren W. Sibilla, Ph.D. Jungian Analyst




"In the pasture of the world, I endlessly push aside the tall grasses in search of the Ox......"

- opening verse of the Ox Herding pictures


Inspired by Jung's lifelong interest in the Eastern spiritual tradition, this workshop will compare and contrast Jung's model of individuation, psychological maturity in the West, with the path of enlightenment, spiritual maturity in the East. We will view and discuss the "Ox Herding Picture series" from 12th century Asia, a collection of short poems and pictures following the Zen tradition.

After considering the history and traditional uses of the pictures, we will discuss their relevance to Zen Buddhism and their relationship to individuation. We will focus on some of the basic concepts of analytical psychology, noting the similarities and differences between Eastern and Western culture, and their respective notions of spiritual and psychological development.

Small discussion group exercises will offer participants the opportunity to apply the workshop material to their own lives, and reflect on the key concepts of analytical psychology and Zen Buddhism, and their relationship to each other.

REIMAGINING MASCULINITY IN THE 21ST CENTURY

As it relates to men and women

with

John P. Schuster, MA




"We need to learn to love and be loved by the mature masculine"..... Robert Moore


What does it mean to be masculine? Masculinity, like femininity, is an idea that transcends gender - and needs to be reimagined in the 21st century. An early pioneer in gender theory, Jung understood each of us to contain both masculine and feminine dimensions.

Drawing on the work of multiple Jungian analysts and thinkers, including James Hollis, Robert Moore and Gareth Hill, this workshop will explore topics such as the anima and animus, gender identity and expression, archetypal patterns of the masculine, and useful models for individual development. We will also touch on the place of women and the feminine in a masculine world, and how the expression of masculinity affects the political and financial scene.

There will be time for questions and discussion, and possibly a musical interlude, as we seek to enrich our personal journey to greater wholeness.
