Explosions and Containment : Our Worlds in Crisis
The worlds we inhabit are rocked by explosive crises as people and groups lash out in an attempt to ward off the unraveling of their ideologies. Daily we are both witness and participate in the destruction of the lives of individuals, the demoralization of cultures, and the devastation of our shared natural environment. And yet sometimes we also experience the creation of new worlds of possibility as other containers appear. Whether the new rhetoric is of “weapons of mass destruction,” or of “an inconvenient truth,” or the tenets of a new Jungian Training Institute, we are drawn into new reflection and experience. We find ourselves in new myths that found new worlds.
Destruction and creation occur both in our lives as analysts and citizens of the world and in our consulting rooms. The crux of the matter lies in whether we survive these analytic explosions and in how our analysands develop as they hold the experiences of inner and outer upheavals. We wait and watch in unfamiliar territory for new vessels and new possibilities. Will we fi nd a passage through the upheavals necessary for the individuation process of individuals and cultures?
This conference will weave together presentations from many different perspectives that address personal and global aspects of crisis, and explore containment and transformation. Topics will range from primal upheavals of body and psyche in symptom and dream, to explosions in war, politics, myth, art and religion. Presentations will take several forms including pre-conference workshops, plenary lectures, concurrent sessions, panels, experiential workshops, and a field trip to the site of Jung’s 1936 seminar on Bailey Island, Maine.
We hope that you will join us in these rich explorations in this beautiful place, where we will challenge and nurture our ability to weather the tidal rhythms of our necessary destructions and creations.
The conference is open to all Jungian analysts, candidates in analytic training programs, and other licensed professionals.
