Workshop: "Refinding the Soul" When Our World Ends - An experiential writing process

We tend to forget that Jung "found his soul" during a period of great suffering and loss, psychic shattering, and feared madness brought on by so- called apocalyptic visions. It is naïve to think that those of us drawn to his psychological methods can avoid some semblance of life-altering, ego- decentering in our "search for soul" (So ineffable a thing defies words to describe it). I have come to find that those sublime moments that fill us with Soul's Beauty are often so intimately and simultaneously linked with our lived suffering, mourning, deepest love, and longing to return to what has been lost.

Using the core of Jung's opus, "Refinding the Soul" as our guide (RB, p. 3), we take up the tools of journaling, artwork and imagination, in hopes of giving voice to our own "world-ending" stories and souls' yearnings. Please bring to our "self experiment" an art pad, colors, journal, pen, and a beloved personal artifact or momento (object, photo, symbol, picture, memory, etc.).

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.
