Continuing Education Courses —Fall 2017
The C.G. Jung Foundation Continuing Education courses are five-week courses designed to be informative and stimulating both to the general public and to professionals. Our program offers you the opportunity to study and explore analytical psychology, the works of C.G. Jung, and fields of related interest.
Fall I: Classes begin the week of October 2, 2017
5 consecutive Mondays, 6:00–7:40 pm
Instructor: Gary Brown, LCSW, LP
Jung provides us with a bridge and a key to otherwise obscure symbol systems, texts, mythologies and images. These may be from ancient and distant sources or our own culture, including especially our own personal lives. Jung's work enables us to bridge to these symbols and offers us a key to the meaning in them.
Early in the last century, translators, commentators and editors and authors such as D.T. Suzuki, Evans-Wenz, et. al., requested from Jung forwards to introduce their work, such as The Tibetan Book of the Dead, The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation, and Introduction to Zen Buddhism. Jung, in turn, wrote his own, The Psychology of Eastern Meditation. It was through these texts and Jung's aid in interpretation that Buddhadharma made its second entry into the West, by which many of us discovered it and became engaged with the texts and the practices. Jung himself notes that The Tibetan Book of the Dead accompanied him on his travels him ever after!
A great historian of religious studies, R.C. Zaehner has declared, "no man has done more to interpret Eastern religion to the West."
Conversely, we will come to a stronger and sharper understanding of Jung's viewpoint and methods of interpretation by our study of these brief introductory essays. Please note that these introductions and forwards have been brought together by Meckel and Moore in their book Self and Liberation. The essays of Jung are self-explanatory in referring to the texts.
5 consecutive Wednesdays, 6.30–8.10 pm
Instructor: Sanford Drob, PhD
This course will provide an introduction to the history of the Kabbalah, its symbolism, and world-view. Jung's 1944 Kabbalistic Visions and his later use of Kabbalistic symbols and ideas will be closely examined. Kabbalistic dream interpretation in the Zohar and its anticipation of Jungian dream analysis will be explored. The Kabbalistic theosophy of Isaac Luria (1534-72) will be interpreted from a Jungian/archetypal point of view. Throughout the course, the relevance of Kabbalistic symbolism and ideas to contemporary psychology, philosophy, theology and art, as well as the conduct of daily living, will be emphasized.
5 consecutive Thursdays, 7:00–8:40 pm
Instructor: Harry Fogarty, PhD
"Daily Bread": Five Jungian Topics (re)Visited
Central motifs from Jung's work will be explored with a didactic critical review of old and new scholarship, and, particularly, with the aim of experientially locating the daily bread we all seek.
Note: This course is held at 305 West 107th Street, Suite N
Fall II: Classes begin the week of November 6th, 2017.
5 consecutive Mondays, 7:00–8:40 pm
Instructor: David Rottman, MA
"There are situations in which a certain amount of emotion is natural and reasonable and if lacking one would feel the want of something, but to be just swayed, swept off one's feet by emotions, is one of the symptoms of primitivity, or even a morbid symptom."
Jung has a lot to say about personal emotions, collective emotions, destructive emotions, healing emotions, emotions that separate, emotions that unite, cosmic emotions, chaotic emotions, meaningful emotions. He explored emotions in depth, uncovering the ways in which emotions work in the psyche, both positively and negatively.
In this course, we will look at Jung's many surprising and challenging ideas about emotions as expressed in both his books and his seminars. We will discuss how emotions impact the "outer" dimensions of our daily lives at work and in relationships, and how emotions impact the way we live with our own "inner" experience of ourselves.
5 consecutive Tuesdays, 6:30–8.10 pm
Instructor: Gary Trosclair, DMA, LCSW
The power of music to move us and connect us with deeper levels of psyche is clear. Just as dreams do, music can reunite us with aspects of the collective unconscious from which we've become disconnected. Yet music has received little attention in the Jungian world. This course will explore the psychological functions of music for both the individual and the community through a Jungian lens. We will explore a wide variety of musical styles in their cultural contexts in order to understand how music compensates collective imbalances. We will also explore the archetypal nature of music and how it may be used or abused in the process of individuation. We will approach our subject matter from many perspectives, ranging from evolutionary psychology and neuropsychology to a personal experience of the numinous.
5 Wednesdays, 6:30–8.10 pm
Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW
The psyche is that marvelously mysterious aspect of human existence. We have only the most enigmatic access to the unconscious in dreams and fantasies. How do we visualize a dimension that is invisible? This workshop on "Painting the Psyche" will be an opportunity for us to experience the transformative activity of the psyche in a profoundly intimate way. By altering our normal ego state of consciousness, we will activate the imagination and then, with watercolors as our medium and paintbrushes as our instruments, we will depict the wonderfully elusive images that spontaneously emerge from our innermost being. Then, together as a group, we will share our felt experiences and explore the creative process. Watercolors, brushes, and paper will be provided.
Fee for materials: add $20 to tuition fee.
