Jung experienced the core of the archetypal shadow as an encompassing destructive and fragmenting force. It is a predator within the psyche. This predatory force can manifest as a psychopathic torturer in outer reality or as a tormentor, who attacks us from within. Like all creatures, the human creature must learn that there are predators, in the world out there and within us. The task is to find the right relationship to this archetypal energy without being overtaken by it.
The fairytale of Bluebeard is an exquisite illustration of how to engage this predatory force.
There is some awareness of Bluebeard in his densest form manifesting as the psychopath who is fully identified with this energy, but Bluebeard also seeps into our lives through much subtler forms of transgressions, leading to what we have to think of as mental or emotional abuse. There is a violence that can be inflicted on the soul of victim and perpetrator that draws blood not from the physical but from the subtle body. This injury can be even more devastating than its physical counterpart.
In this day-long seminar we will allow the dark eros of the fairytale of Bluebeard to guide us through its various manifestations in lived life and we will explore ways of how psyche can escape the grip of her own inherent destructiveness.
