REGENERATING THE FEMININE
Chronicling the Radical Rise of the Feminine
in Psyche, Culture and Nature

Presenter: April Heaslip, PhD, Mythologist and Educator

The historic and imaginal exile of the feminine in Western cultures—lasting for millennia—has had enormous traumatic impact creating a complex, gendered Wasteland. Her return is regenerative and offers perhaps the most significant and far-reaching potential for regeneration in our times. We will identify gendered patterns within this innovative fourth wave of feminism—from cinematic expressions to emerging political and religious leadership— offering unique opportunities for tending the relationship between gender, trauma, the collective unconscious, and the curative powers of synchronicity and creativity. Central to this work is the amplification of feminist revisions of Joseph Campbell’s masculinist “hero’s” journey and analyzes the necessary regenerative steps for both interdependent individuation—as the integration of the unconscious—and cultural revitalization

ALCHEMY AND INDIVIDUATION
The Washer Women as a Feminine Image of Transformation

Presenter: Sarah Shelton, MS, LPC-S

In Alchemy, Jung found a profound metaphor for the process of psychological transformation that he called Individuation. He observed a correspondence between psychological processes and alchemical operations, and that study of these images helped to create a kind of psychological vessel or “vas,” in alchemical terms, in which to hold our own transformational process. One image from the Splendor Solis series stands out as an uncommon scene of everyday life: an ordinary scene of women washing clothes. This plate offers us a beautiful metaphor for the hard and tedious nature of working through a core complex. Some of this work is not “heroic” as much as requiring an attitude of being ready and willing to work, an attitude we can observe as necessary to adopt for the heroine’s journey.

RELATING TO DREAMS

Presenter: Marilyn Marshall, LPC, Jungian Analyst

Without the ego’s will and consciousness, the dream appears and offers us what Jung remarks as “the inner truth and reality.” When we can confront our resistance and relate to the dream, we find meaning in its image of inner truth and we deepen and broaden our personalities. Undivided, there is more of us to live life. This presentation will focus on how we can relate to the dream. Jung’s concepts of the structure of the unconscious, the complexes, the archetypes, the dream’s perspectives, and active imagination will help us explore its rich and layered potential.

A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE ON CLIMATE CHANGE

ALCHEMICAL ECOPSYCHOLOGY

Presenter: Jeffrey Kiehl, PhD, Climate Scientist and Jungian Analyst

Alchemical Ecopsychology recognizes the deep, subtle interconnectedness of psyche and matter though combining the sacred, psychological practices of alchemy with the discipline of ecopsychology. Through the union of these two subjects, one ancient, the other relatively new, we discover a path to not only understanding how life interacts with the environment but how life and environment are inherently sacred.

THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF FEMININE RAGE
An Exploration through Depth Psychology and the Arts

Presenter: Constance Romero, LPC, Jungian Analyst

Psychoanalysis has a complicated past when it comes to conceptualizing feminine development and expression. Though much has changed, the field of Psychology has both championed women’s creative expression and, at times, reinforced cultural stereotypes that deter access to female desire and agency. In these tumultuous times, the complex, transformative dynamics of feminine rage have found a newly articulated voice in both the Arts and in Depth Psychology. How we view and hold what are often felt to be transgressive and shameful feelings are explored through feminist drama, film and a Depth Psychological approach to trauma. Join us for this years annual Art and Psyche program as we explore the creative, transformative potential of feminine rage in our time.
