                                                “Enlightenment is not imagining figures of light but making the darkness conscious.”

                                                                                                                                            Carl Gustav Jung





Janice Bachman, O.P., Jungian Analyst

"The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul,

opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any

ego consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far

our ego-consciousness extends..." C.G. Jung

Dreams are unique gifts given to each of us.  Dreams connect us to a source of wisdom beyond the ego and can heal and guide us on our journey to become more whole persons.  In this lecture we will explore how dreams can open us to a depth of dialogue between consciousness and the unconscious, how dreams serve as a conduit for the healing energy of the psyche through what C.G. Jung called "the transcendent function," and situate this content within the larger arena of psychological development and spiritual growth.

A Jungian Perspective

with Richard J. Sweeney, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst

"... man is indispensable for the completion of creation...."  C.G.Jung

Late in life, C.G. Jung expressed his belief that the sole purpose of human existence is " to create more and more consciousness" so as "to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being." In this program, we will examine the nature and importance of consciousness, particularly in today's world. To this end, we will consider the development and degrees of consciousness and explore frequent obstacles to consciousness. We will probe Jung's view that all psychological symptoms and neuroses derive from conflict or polarization within the psyche.

This will lead to a reflection upon social consciousness and the problem of polarization within the collective psyche today. Our aim will be to suggest how the development of consciousness is both a personal and societal enterprise. The presentation will combine lecture with the use of case examples, dream material, recent research and some interaction with participants.
