Presenter: Sadani Janet Houtz, IAYT Yoga Therapist

Individuation requires awareness of the physiological component of our complexes as manifested in emotional states and bodily traits. We will reflect on these manifestations through the healing art and science of yoga. Based on the Yoga Therapy Pancamaya model, we will experience the visual reality of personal and group energy through connection. We will explore integrated movement, breath and sound to awaken and manage our own energy creating physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual stability, and overall balance. Meditation becomes the crown of the practice. Come prepared to Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch and Allow into your possibility. Dress comfortably. (Practice will be seated and standing.)

Acts of Resistance in Interpretation and Life

Presenter: Laura Camille Tuley, PhD, LPC, Jungian Analyst

We will consider the theme of resistance as both the psychoanalytic concept with which we are familiar— as that which sometimes impedes the analytic process and individual growth—and as that which, at times, can and does serve the aim of individuation and the movement of the Self. We will reflect upon the idea that at times the process of individuation might entail an act or posture of resistance, which requires an individual (or group) to go against the grain of the status quo and social or cultural norms and to accept a position of marginalization, alienation and, occasionally, death. We will examine our interpretation and “handling” of the phenomenon of resistance clinically, mythically via the myth of Cassandra, and in the context of the resurgence of activism in this country (e.g., in form of the MeToo Movement, the anti-gun violence movement among youth, the movement in support of refugees, and the protests to halt the development of the Dakota Access Pipeline).

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

Presenter: April Heaslip, PhD

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
