Personne ne choisit un beau matin de devenir plus conscient et de démarrer un processus d’individuation.  On le fait parce qu’on est brisé et qu’il faut “sauter de niveau,” comme le font les humains depuis toujours lorsque confrontés à un trauma collectif comme guerre, glaciation, famine, épidémie.
      Un matin, on se lève et on se dit: “voilà, j'ai fini d'être cette personne! Une autre que moi doit naître pour la remplacer parce que je souffre.  Je veux des idées, des symboles, des exemples qui vont me permettre de recalibrer mon cerveau, raffiner mes connexions, faire un saut évolutif, en finir avec les comportements franchement névrotiques, me civiliser, m’élever.” 
       L’expérience du deuil, de la perte, et du désamour sont des occasions ou soit nous régressons, soit nous accomplissons ce saut évolutif si cher aux neuroscientifiquesLe processus d’individuation, tel que décrit par Jung, est équivalent à ce “saut évolutif.” La science peut décrire le processus, mais ne peut pas le provoquer.
     C’est là que l’approche Jungienne offre une méthode originale, une grande aventure de la conscience.

Un atelier de formation professionnelle*, ouvert à tous


samedi, 16 septembre

The John Molson School of Business

Le désamour, le deuil, la perte d’identité professionnelle, l’isolement, sont des situations traumatiques qui serviront d’exemples pour faciliter ce que les neuroscientifiques appellent un saut évolutif, un concept qui s’apparente à celuid’individuation et de sagesse psychologique.
      Cette journée présentera de nouveaux rituels thérapeutiques qui ont comme objectif d’éviter d’appesantir davantage le domaine conceptuel et contourner le problème des jargons ésotériques (jargon jungien, ou jargon neuroscientifique). Les participants feront l’expérience d’une méthode simple qui revient aux bases de la psychologie de Jung et d’Hillman, c’est à dire de découvrir les images-forces qui émanent de l’inconscient.

Ginette Paris est Professeur émérite du Pacifica Graduate Institute, de Santa Barbara; elle revient au Québec après vingt ans en Californie. 
     Elle est l’auteur de plusieurs livres, traduits en sept langues. 
Son livre Wisdom of the Psyche est consideré par James Hillman, le fondateur de la psychologie archétypale et nommé pour le prix Pulitzer, comme un livre qui “tourne la page sur un siècle de psychologie.”

Are You Too Sensitive?

Sensitivity and Introversion as Special Ways of Experiencing Life

A lecture by Susan Meindl of Montreal


Friday, October 20
7:30-10:00 p.m.
The John Molson School of Business
1450 rue Guy (Metro Guy/Concordia)
MB 3.210
Members $15; Non-Members $20
Students/Senior Members $10

 

In his 1912 Fordham lectures, Carl Jung considered whether a quality he described as “sensitivity” might be an essential and foundational aspect of personality.
     Dr. Elaine Aron’s 1995 book The Highly Sensitive Person proposes that 15-20% of the general population is characterized by a higher than average degree of sensitivity.
Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) are characterized by empathy, imagination, thoughtfulness and conscience, qualities that may be highly appreciated, but also by typical vulnerabilities such as being easily over-stimulated and intensely emotional.
     North America’s cultural tendency to overvalue extroversion means our society’s response to sensitivity and introversion is often ambivalent. Faced with a growing chorus of demand for recognition of neuro-diversity and temperamental differences, are we challenged to more truly assimilate the value of human differences?

 

 

A Special Way of Experiencing:

Understanding and Valuing Introversion and Sensitivity

2 workshops with Psychologist Susan Meindl *

Workshop Part 1: (Open to all)
Saturday, October 21

Members $35; Non-Members $40
Students/Senior Members $20

  

Workshop Part 1 will describe the qualities and characteristics of Highly Sensitive people in relation to family of origin dynamics, in adult relationships, in the workplace, and as it relates to aging. 
     An experiential exercise will underscore the value and contributions of sensitivity to human life and culture and help to develop a validating and supportive language around these qualities.
      A final section of the program will suggest practical strategies for living with and managing High Sensitivity.
 

Workshop Part 2
Saturday, October 21
2:30-4:30 p.m.
Members $25; Non-Members $30
Students/Senior Members $20

  OPQ #RA02193-17 (5 hours)

This extended portion of the workshop (Part 2) will contain a brief overview of the applicable research on High Sensitivity. A section on differential diagnosis will separate innate sensitivity from other mental health difficulties. Assessment scales and self-tests will be introduced. A discussion period will permit participants to ask questions and share their clinical experiences.


Susan Meindl MA is a psychologist in private practice in Montreal. She is a graduate of the McGill Counselling Psychology program and of the Argyle Institute’s Individual Psychoanalytically-oriented Psychotherapy program. She has made a specialty of working with Highly Sensitive and introverted clients.

Dreams are of course at the core of the whole Jungian endeavour and the universe of Jungian writings on the subject is boundless. We will discuss a small but diverse sample including texts from Jung and his associates and from the archetypal school, along with recent works including some hands-on approaches and a heretical one.

Jung and the Spiritual Realm:

Jung and the Red Book

A Lecture by Francis X. Charet


Friday, November 10

7 :30-10 :00 p.m.  

The John Molson School of Business

Room MB 3.210

The lavishly illustrated, facsimile edition of The Red Book of C. G. Jung appeared in 2009 with considerable fanfare and was greeted widely as though an arcane illuminated manuscript that had at last seen the light of day. For those who are captured by the remarkable images that seem to come from beyond and are drawn to the text that accompanies them, replete with ghostly conversations with inner images, The Red Book fills a gap in Jung’s life and thought. This has less to do with the clinical and psychotherapeutic applications of Jungian psychology than with Jung’s own spiritual journey. That journey has its roots in and ongoing contact with the liminal region where psyche and spirit intermingle.


Francis X. Charet has a PhD in Psychology and Religion and has taught at a number of universities including McGill and University of Ottawa as well as lectured widely. He is currently a faculty member at Goddard College, Vermont, and the coordinator of the Consciousness Studies concentration in the Graduate Institute that integrates psychology, neuroscience and the humanities.
