Seminar: Alchemical and Clinical Reflections
September to May, 2018
JACQUELINE WEST, Ph.D. and MONIKA WIKMAN, Ph.D.
The seminar continues to delve into Jung’s later works focusing on Alchemical Studies, Vol. 13 of the Collected Works. Here, Jung delves into various images and religious motifs that bring his ideas into vivid life, including commentaries on alchemical processes, wide- ranging explorations into the nature of Mercurius, and profound reflections about the Philosophical Tree. We will begin this year with the Philosophical Tree and return to sections of the Red Book. Our focus with these studies from both alchemical and clinical perspectives will lead us into reflections and explorations of our personal and cultural dreams.
Eight 2½-hour sessions from 6 to 8:30pm on Thursday evenings between September and May, exact dates TBA.
$75.00 per session. 20 CEUs. Enrollment limited.
