Ken Kimmel, Jungian Psychoanalyst
C.G. Jung Society, Seattle Presents:

Ken Kimmel, Jungian Psychoanalyst
Friday, May 10th, 7-9PM

Shattering & Restoring:
Relational threads underlying Jung's initial Red Book entries

Tonight the presenter will be considering Jung's initial journal entries in Liber Novus, taking into account four main influences. The first section of the talk will provide an overview of the influences of the cultural and historical period in which Jung lived. Secondly we will look at the impact of the traumas of Jung's early life. Next, his emotionally laden interpersonal relations and their losses, prior to the outbreak of his "creative illness" that began in 1912, comprise the third factor. Two of Jung's early entries in the Black Book Journals in late 1913 will be the focus of the fourth portion of the talk. These journal texts were transcribed into what later would become Liber Primusthe initial section of The Red Book.  You may find the ideas surfacing from this more personal investigation both surprising and original.

Learning Objectives:

1. Knowledge of the history and development of Analytical Psychology;
2. Understanding of Jung's methods of "active imagination," dreamwork and expressive arts;
3. Applied, practical experience of these techniques.

Ken Kimmel is a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in Seattle and author of Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism, (Fisher King Press, 2011). His chapter, "Dreaming the Face of the EarthMyth, Culture & Dreams of the Mayan Shaman", is contained in the recently published The Dream and its Amplification, edited by Erel Shalit and Nancy Swift Furlotti, (Fisher King Press, 2013). Excerpts of his research in 1974 among the Spiritist healers of Brazil were published in Realms of Healing, by Stanley Krippner and Alberto Villoldo, (Celestial Arts, 1976). Over two decades he served as Director of the Pacific Northwest Center for Dream Studies, teaching widely on the subjects of dreams and patterns of initiation both ancient and modern. His interests over these last ten years concern the interface of Analytical Psychology with contemporary schools of psychoanalysis, philosophy, mystical traditions, and most recently, the problem of love and narcissism.
