James Hollis, Ph.D. - Haunting: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives
C.G. Jung Society, Seattle Presents:
Lecture: Friday, October 18th
James Hollis, Ph.D. - Haunting:
Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives
Our ancestors believed in ghosts, and perhaps they were not far off the mark as so much of daily life is driven by invisible psychic forces, archaic agendas, and imperious admonitions and prohibitions, all the more powerful because they operate unconsciously. What are the features of such "hauntings," and how might we gain some further foothold on a more conscious conduct of life?
Literary and case studies will illustrate the presence of "hauntings" in people's lives. Please bring notepad and pen upon which to reflect on the invisible powers, which govern your daily life.
1. Understand the replicative nature of "complexes," and their implications for therapy.
2. Track from behavioral patterns, the narrative threads that run through a person's history.
3. Discern ways to identify manifestations of the unconscious in the midst of biographical detail.
4. Gain a greater appreciation for the role of affect-laden ideas to generate patterns.
5. Identify the place of "secrets," and stories untold in the shame-based sources of patient behavior.
James Hollis' new book will be available for purchase at both events.
