Spring 2014 Public Programs

Murray Stein Weekend Special Event
March 14-15, 2014

Summer Intensive


Turning a Blind Eye and Witnessing
Penelope Tarasuk, Ph.D.
Saturday, April 5, 2014 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Cost: $40 4 CEUs

Recent public scandals and collective trauma are examined against the mythic background of Pandora’s Box. How can bearing witness to such trauma aid in the development of compassion rather than blinding or numbing us further? And how is it that when Pandora’s Box is nearly emptied of its contents and evil unleashed upon the world the divine gift of Hope yet remains at the bottom of the chest?

Penelope Tarasuk is a Jungian psychoanalyst whose workshops and lectures in the United States and abroad focus upon dreaming, active imagination, nature, art and body in spiritual development. She has been a member of the Training Board of the C.G. Jung Institute-Boston, and currently serves as training analyst, supervisor and faculty member.

Listening to Our Inner Stories: An Introduction to Active Imagination
Erica Lorentz, M.Ed., LPC
Saturday, April 12, 2014 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Cost: $60 5 CEUs

Active imagination is a dialogue whereby our consciously aware self has a meaningful dialogue with some part of our unconscious psyche. In this workshop we will gently invite this dialogue using a non-structured, meditative exploration with drawing, writing, and movement. No experience with these mediums is necessary: curiosity and a desire to attune to one’s inner world is all that is important.

Erica Lorentz is a Jungian Analyst with thirty years of clinical experience and is in private practice in Brattleboro, VT and Northampton, MA. Presently, she is a training analyst in the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and the New England Society of Jungian Analysts. She has lectured and taught workshops in the US and Canada.

The Alchemy of Writing: Through Darkness to Light
Susan Tiberghien
Friday, May 2, 2014 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM
Cost: $30 2.5 CEUs

After a brief introduction to the history of alchemy, we will look for images in our dreams, memories and surroundings. Through active imagination, which Jung saw as the equivalent of the ‘alchemical operation,’ we will follow our images into the dark unknown, picturing them, dialoguing with them. We will shape the images into journal entries, short stories, essays or prose poems, polishing the gold nuggets that we have found.

Susan M. Tiberghien is author of Looking for Gold, A Year in Jungian Analysis (Daimon Verlag, 1997, 2005) and One Year to a Writing Life (Da Capo Press, 2007). She teaches and lectures at graduate programs, C.G. Jung Centers, and at writers’ conferences both in the United States and in Europe, where she directs the Geneva Writers’ Group and Conferences. Her website is www.susantiberghien.com.

Obsession, Addiction, and Job’s Answer to Jung
Richard Kradin, MD
Saturday, May 31, 2014 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Cost: $60 5 CEUs

Obsessive-compulsive behaviors were well recognized by the early psychoanalysts as a particularly difficult subset of patients. The present course will examine the history of this disorder together with its developmental and archetypal underpinnings, as well as how to navigate the difficult transference/countertransference issues that arise in treatment.  It will adopt the biblical Book of Job as a symbolic path into how to approach these difficult patients in a Jungian analysis.

Richard Kradin, is a Jungian psychoanalyst, and professor at Harvard Medical School, who practices at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. He is the author Pathologies of the Mind/Body Interface, The Placebo Response, and The Herald Dream. He is the recipient of the Gravida Prize for his paper, “The psychosomatic symptom: a siren’s song,” published in the Journal of Analytical Psychology.
