Summer Series 2014 - Jung's Red Book w/ Walter A. McGerry
Selected Wednesday Evenings, 7-9 PM:
June 11 & 25; July 9 & 23; August 13 & 20
Sonu Shamdasani tells the story of an associate of Jung's who asked Jung to comment on some of his red book mandalas and paintings. Jung declined saying that his friend would be better served by creating her own red book.
This summer we will have the opportunity to begin creating our own red books during a six-week course that will meet during June, July and August.
Course participants will meet with a presenter for two hours every other week. During these meetings we will discuss Jung's experiences which lead to the production of The Red Book. During seceding sessions we will learn about active imagination techniques, dream interpretation, journaling and mandala creation. Participants will have an opportunity to use these techniques between sessions and bring their creations to the group for discussion and sharing.
Session One: Introduction to Jung's experiences with the Red Book material and the development of active imagination methods. Overview of active imagination, dream analysis, synchronicity and mandala creation.
Session Two: Instruction in active imagination. Between sessions participants will work with active imagination methods and will give expression to the inspiration that emerges through drawing, writing and sculpting.
Session Three: Participants will share expressions of their active imagination work. Instruction in dream work/analysis together with Jung's views. Between sessions participants will work with dreams and keep a journal.
Session Four: Participants will share their experiences with dream work. Instruction in Jung's views of synchronicity. Between sessions participants will keep a journal of synchronistic occurrences.
Session Five: Participants will share their journal of synchronous experiences. Instruction in mandala as transcendent unifying principal. Between sessions participants will create mandala.
Session Six: Reflection and integration of material through sharing of personal mandalas.
(The course will be limited to a maximum of 20 participants.)
