This winter, our study program will focus on fundamentals,individuation, anima, archetypes, fairy tales, religion and body work. The enlightening program culminates with a coveted visit to Jung's medieval tower in Bollingen, Switzerland, hosted by Jung's grandson, followed by a typical Swiss lunch overlooking picturesque Lake Zurich and a visit to the village of Einsiedeln, a destination for countless pilgrims and the baroque monastery dating from the 18th century.
The Benedictine Monastery has a history spanning more than 1,000 years. Since the Middle Ages, Einsiedeln, with its Black Madonna, has been one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Europe. Here’s your chance to see it all and experience history firsthand.
Our Jungian Winter Intensive is structured so that lectures, seminars and discussions can be followed by those with a limited background in Jungian psychology. At the same time, the program will be of specific value to those with professional psychological training and interests. The courses are taught by analysts of the Jung Institute and internationally renowned guest lecturers.
Mind Body Passport is approved by the California Psychological Association to provide continuing professional education for psychologists. Mind Body Passport maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

What Is Analysis and What Do We Analyze A different look:
This seminar will look at what we call analysis and how we listen to the words and dimensions of the analysands material and how we understand and structure that material so it has meaning to both analyst and analysand. Our founding fathers did not leave much regarding technique, rather they left their power of their personalities. This seminar hopes to help the student and analyst question the manner in which he/she works. Just, maybe there is more than the power of the personality.I would like to discuss the Goodheart paper, which is based on the writings of Robert Langs. I will end this with a paraphrase of Winnicott, there ain't no such thing as as analysand without a relationship with their analyst and no such thing as an analyst without a relationship to their analysand.

Dr. Carl Jung calls the anima “the very soul of man,” “an extremely dramatic content of the unconscious,” and “the archetype of life itself.” She is man’s other personality. Individuation, or becoming the person you really are, depends upon getting into a living, respectful relationship with this internal other. This inner relationship is also the foundation for all meaningful relationships in the external world.d. We will look to the seminal work of Carl Jung, Emma Jung, Marie Louise von Franz, Anthony Stevens and others, as well as myth, story and case material as we explore Jung’s concept of anima development. It is one of Jung’s most difficult concepts, but if we are to become an individual and bring our gifts to the world, we must consciously confront this obscure and difficult complex. Now, more than ever, we are in dire need of awakening to Her rightful place within us. (Max. 20 participants)

The Clinical Use of Fairy Tales:
There are a number of ways of working with fairy tales in psychotherapy: We can use them to confront issues stemming from childhood and see if they offer any suggestions for how to deal with them. Or we can use it as a mirror to our present dilemmas. Furthermore can use the fairy tale a means of stimulating a creative process of symbolization, a kind of imagination, guided by the images of the fairy tale. These different approaches are presented in the seminar and partly practiced. (Max. 10 participants)

Wanting to steel the thief bird and back the apples the youngest, stupid as he is, gets caught and condemned to death by the king who ownes the bird – unless he brings him the golden horse. But trying to steel this horse he again gets caught and condemned to death – unless he brings the princess from the golden castle to the king who ownes the horse.

The Problem of Suffering in Answer to Job Jung`s Approach and some other Alternatives:
The purpose of this seminar is to deal with the question of individuation both from the perspective of the ego and from that of the Self. The necessary condition for this is to understand The Book of Job not only from a psychological perspective related to the problem of suffering and the meaning of it for the individual (both in the context of the Old Testament and in the historical situation of modern man), but also from the perspective of the transformations of the God Image and the destiny of humankind. The last point brings up new questions (already raised by C. G. Jung) concerning the history of religions that should nevertheless be considered from the point of view of today’s research and the development of a multicultural perspective, without losing track of C. G. Jung’s specific contribution to the understanding of the collective substratum of what is called “human history”. (Max. 17 participants)

Jazz Transatlantic Archetypal images in jazz and blues culture. Introduction to the lecturer`s new book “Jazz Transatlantic” :
The lecturer’s recent two-volume book published by the University of Mississippi Press Jackson, in 2017 is the first depth-psychological study of U.S. and African jazz musicians biographies and the archetypal processes in their art. The study covers the dimension of immaterial relationships and imagination, omens, taboos, vodu, witchcraft (wanga), spells, psychiatric damage inflicted upon artists, and individual development of healing structures through music, from “acoustic mandalas”, blues expression, to illusion effects in the kinemics of jass, which help develop individuation and support the archetype of the Self. This study combines theoretical issues from analytical psychology, psychoanalysis, cultural history and structural analysis of musical patterns. With audio and video examples of historical jazz performances.

Mungongi Structure and imagery in an Angolan secret society recorded 1965:
Eastern Angolan society was characterized by gender parity before the 20th century devastations through colonialism, the liberation struggle and Civil War. A matrilineally organized society, it gave much authority to the women’s side; female chiefs were common; inheritance took place in the matrilineage. The languages spoken include Cokwe, Lucazi, Mbwela, Nkangala, Lwena and others. Mungongi on the male side and tuwema on the female side were the results of negotiations managing gender conflict in the remote past, through the invocation of archetypal structures and imagery as symbolic solutions offered by the collective unconscious. The lecturer was initiated into mungongi in 1965 at Chief Kayoko’s place near Kwitu-Kwanavale in eastern Angola, a region the Portuguese used to call “o fim do mundo” (the end of the world). Archetypal symbols such as the veranus lizard with a diamond in its mouth, the couple Nyakoya and Sankoya, and Kalunga, symbol of infinity, circularity, rain, and the Self will be discussed. With projection of original research slides, Angola 1965, and discussion of the etiological myth of mungongi. (Max. 17 participants)

Navajo Myth--Where the Two Came to Their Father:
This seminar will explore the richly symbolic creation legend of the Navajo people, which they incorporated into their blessing ceremony for tribe members headed to battle. Having observed this rite during World War II, when native Americans were for the first time drafted into the U.S. military, ethnologist Maud Oakes recorded the legend and made reproductions of the beautiful ceremonial paintings, given to her by the medicine man Jeff King. We will discuss the archetypal symbolism in the sand paintings as well as the idea of spiritual quest, as represented by the two sons and the journey to their Father. (Max. 8 participants)
