Long (workshop): Child Archetype: Playing Toward Wholeness
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.

- C. G. Jung

Jung knew how to play. Even as an elder, Jung could still sit for hours at the lakeside where he built his retreat and play with a stick on the sandy shore, creating small rivulets for the water to travel.

Play is relaxing. It energizes us. For most of us play is fun, even joyful. Play and your burdens feel lighter and doorways open to new possibilities. Play goes even deeper.

Jung wrote: "... without playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable." As Jungian Analyst Joan Chodorow notes: "All the creative arts therapies can trace their roots to Jungís early contribution" (in the areas of active imagination, play, and creativity).

In this workshop we will explore how Jung's playful relationship with the inner world opened up the vast world of the collective unconscious. As we observe play as a factor both in the natural world and in the ways that we as individuals create through our own playful forms and expression, we will discover how we each are called to our own playful exploration.

Workshop Learning Objectives:

- Increase understanding of and encourage play to bring balance to inner/outer world experience.

- Create connections between Jungian psychology with current research on how play and creativity is integral to the individuation process.

- Articulate, use, and begin to integrate play in chosen areas of experience.

- Solidify a basic understanding about how play informs inner work (dream work, active imagination, writing, arts-based forms integrated into Jungian work).

- Bring clarity about oneís own natural style, strengths, biases, and limitations through playful exploration.
