Living the Symbolic Life
   A lecture by Mary Tomlinson

Online Via ZOOM

Sunday, May 16; 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

“With the birth of the symbol, the regression of the libido into the unconscious ceases… the blockage starts to flow again.”  (Jung: Collected Works 6, p. 445)

Jung’s concept of ‘symbol’ lies throughout his Collected Works. It is the core component of his ‘transcendent function’, a dynamic which brings about true change within us, via the messaging of the unconscious. Symbol is what happens to us at the crossroads, and we can either heed or repress its pull; we can either accept the numinous into our lives, or we can choose the safe patterns that have always kept us on the straight and narrow. This seminar is about discovering what’s important to us in our unique existence and by extension the fundamental nature of identity.


Mary Tomlinson graduated in May 2011 from the International School of Analytical Studies (ISAP) in Zurich, Switzerland, and has established a practice here in Toronto whence she hails. Mary has degrees in Economics and Law (both a J.D. and a Masters) but she found that her passion led her to Jungian Analysis. When she was 23 she found an old second-hand softcover copy of Jung’s Memories, Dreams, Reflections and it became her centering touchstone for the next three decades when life became overwhelming.

Once her three children were old enough, she started training in Toronto with OAJA and then in Zurich and has been seeing clients for the last 5 years. Her love of books lead her to write a thesis entitled, What is it about a Mystery? on the detective story and why we are so enthralled with the genre. Mary has been reading them since she was 22 years old; interestingly, Jung also was devoted to them. Mary is a strong believer in the quality of the analytic relationship being the sine qua non of healing and transformation.

At present, Mary is also involved in a project with six other analysts from all over the world (via Skype) to re-examine Jung’s typology model. It is an area of Jungian study that doesn’t receive a great deal of attention in training and Mary has always found it intriguing
