Rutte (workshop): The Enigmatic Relationship Between Jungian Psychology and Religion
In this seminar, we will use the relationship between Carl Jung and Victor White to wrestle with the enigmatic relationship between Jungian psychology and religion/theology.  We will look at parts of Answer to Job, the book which acted as the catalyst to so wound their friendship.  In the process, we will consider our own processes of coming to Jungian psychology, and how that process has affected our relationship to religion.  Possible questions to be considered are:
What is the relationship between Jungian psychology and religion?
Is Jungian psychology the new dispensation, as Edward Edinger has described it?
Does one individuate, become a Jungian disciple, see Jung as a teacher  just how does one incorporate Jung into ones psyche?  Jung moved beyond his identity as a Swiss Protestant.  White moved beyond first Anglicanism, and then conservative Roman Catholicism.  He seems to have tried to become a Jungian.  But in the end, they were of different faiths.  How is this process for us?
Workshop Learning Objectives:

- To understand more deeply what daimon drove C.G. Jung in his development of Analytical Psychology.

- To understand the difficult struggles involved in the process of relating analytical psychology and religion/theology, and the development of this process today.

- To strengthen awareness of the numinous in Jungian psychotherapy/analysis.

Joseph Rutte, Ph.D. is a psychologist and Jungian analyst presently practicing in Seattle.  He has had a vital interest in the relationship between Fr. Victor White and C.G. Jung for fifteen years, as soon as he discovered their correspondence.  His article, Run Over by a Train, in Psychological Perspectives in 1998, was his first description of their relationship, and was followed by a more extensive article in the current issue of the same journal.  

Dr. Rutte was a member of a Catholic religious order for fourteen years early in his life, and worked as a teacher and priest in that congregation.  He has been a licensed and practicing psychologist for the past thirty years.  Thus, he has both Victor White and Carl Jung in his psyche, which accounts for his intense professional interest in their friendship.  He is currently an analyst in the North Pacific Institute of Analytical Psychology.
