Advanced Jungian Studies in Pittsburgh for 2015-16 Academic Year

The Pittsburgh Seminar of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (also known as the C G Jung Institute Analyst Training Program of Pittsburgh) is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic year.  

We welcome individuals wishing to engage in a serious study of Jungian psychology. Our participants include those who are presently candidates in the analyst training program, individuals currently “auditing” the program with the intent on applying for formal training to become an analyst, as well as individuals who are interested in studying Jung for personal enrichment, or to deepen clinical skills, without the intent to enter into formal training.

We typically meet once a month for 9 hours of lectures/seminars and 4 hours of case colloquium starting on a Friday morning at 11:00 and ending at 5:30 the following Saturday afternoon.

The application process includes a personal biographical statement, resume and a personal interview with two or three faculty members. Participants must be pursuing their own personal analysis.

If you want to know more Jung, consider joining us. You can see last year’s curriculum at irsja.org. Click on the “Training” tab, then “Seminars” then Pittsburgh Seminar to see a list of courses by local and visiting analysts.

Interested in ‘Fireside Chats’ Led by Dianne Braden, Jungian Analyst? Let Us Know Today!

We are eager to introduce Jungian thoughts and perspective to the Greater Cleveland audience and we’d like to hear whether you’d be interested in attending a new event series called “Fireside Chats.”

We are considering kicking off the series – led by Dianne Braden, Jungian Analyst – with a discussion of The Fireside Chats by Hal and Sidra Stone, and a second called, Memories, Dreams and Reflections…Around the Fire. More details for each session are below!

We’d like to hold these events in September or October. Please contact us today if you are interested in the program and would like to learn more. Our form is located here or email us atinfo@jungcleveland.org.

 

The Fireside Chats

First Event to be Led by Dianne Braden, Jungian Analyst

The Fireside Chats with Hal and Sidra Stone, by Hal Stone, Ph.D., and Sidra Stone, Ph.D., editing and reflections by Dianne Braden, M.A., Jungian Analyst, is a book of the future if you’re interested in tools and thoughts that enhance your relationships, your analytic work and your connections to a larger community.  If your patients talk about their relationships (and whose don’t!) and you’ve avoided couple’s work in your practice in the past, this book gives you a unique opportunity to enter into another way of thinking about what Jung understood at the end of his life:

… I falter before the task of finding the language which might adequately express the incalculable paradoxes of love. “Eros” is a “kosmogonos”, a creator and mother-father of all higher consciousness …  we are in the deepest sense … the instruments of cosmogonic love… (MDR) 

In content, this is a book about relationship as teacher. The Stones' work rests on the understanding that consciousness can be as available as turning to the person you are with and asking yourself what you can learn by being with them. In form, this is a series of intimate dialogues recorded at the event of the same name in 2009 in Mendocino, California. Edited and reflected upon by Dianne Braden, Jungian analyst, this stands as a chance to witness personal and spontaneous conversation with Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, originators of the Psychology of Selves and the Aware Ego Process. Presented in a tone and attitude that makes it possible to feel like you’re present to the meeting itself, Dianne Braden offers an experience of connection with, and appreciation of, these psycho-spiritual elders who teach what they live. Psychologists both, their collective professional experience spans six decades of working at depth with individuals, couples and groups.

Offering a rare opportunity to engage with their mature thought and reflections, the Stones share their thoughts about the process of aging in relationship, how death and dying can be handled consciously, psycho-spiritual growth, and the gift of working with dreams. Solidly dovetailing with Jungian thought and other psychological trends (Hal Stone was a former president of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles and Sidra Stone was the executive director of an innovative residential treatment center for adolescent girls) their combined perspectives span multiple therapies, decades, and thoughts about the evolution of consciousness.

Memories, Dreams and Reflections…Around the Fire

Second Event to be Led by Dianne Braden, Jungian Analyst

One of Jung’s most important – and for many, favorite works – is his autobiography, dictated to and edited by Aneila Jaffe. This work stands as one of the best expressions of not only Jung’s story as he reflected on it in his maturity, but also as one of the clearest presentations of his theory and the origins of it. Join Dianne in an informal setting for an on-going study and discussion group, and take the time to savor and reflect on the richness and implications of Jung’s writing.

The group will consist of reading MDR together, and stopping to consider and discuss material both personal and relevant to Jung’s reflections in the book. Given the length of the book, participants should expect this process to take the better part of a year, and see it as the opportunity it is to gather with like-minded individuals invested in understanding and appreciating the depth and breadth of Jung’s thought, both in the context of his time and culture, and its implications for our generation and generations to come.

About Hal and Sidra Stone

Hal and Sidra Stone are partners in marriage and in work with over 100 years of practice in their combined resumes. They are the originators of Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves. Their work is available in books, articles, mp3s, CDs, audiocassettes, and DVDs. For the past thirty years Hal and Sidra have taught together, both nationally and internationally. Their work with the many selves that make up the human psyche, their unique approach to relationship, and their introduction of the Aware Ego Process into the field of psycho-spiritual development, have been groundbreaking. They are inspired teachers who bring humor and enthusiasm to their work, and a practical, earthy approach to spirituality and the transformational process. And they have personally walked the challenging and rewarding path of "relationship as teacher" in many of its aspects; between them, they have had 5 children and 5 grandchildren. More information at www.voicedialogue.org.

About Dianne Braden

Dianne Braden is a Jungian Analyst and Voice Dialogue Facilitator in private practice in the Cleveland, Ohio area. With a background in languages and addictions, her interest in the other levels of the psyche has brought her to depth psychology and a passionate interest in the world of dreams and multiple ways of seeing and working with human personality. She is a senior analyst in the Inter-regional Society of Jungian Analysts and has worked with Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone in Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves for more than a decade.
