In 1913, Jung began to have visions that foretold Europe’s plunge into World War I. How could this be? How could his psyche have connected to an event yet to occur? It would take another 30 years before Jung dove into this dilemma. Sparked by his correspondence with the famous physicist, Wolfgang Pauli, Jung would ponder the ultimate unity between the physical and psychic realms until his death in 1961. Come learn about the definition of synchronicity and join discussion about how we, as individuals, experience meaningful “coincidences” in our own lives.

The Wound as Bridge to the Numinous
Free for members, $5 non-members, no pre-registration required
6:30-8:00 pm Forest Hill Church Presbyterian
Wounding is a fundamental part of human experience that can connect us to undeveloped and unknown aspects of ourselves, to deeper experiences of the soul, and to the mysteries of life, which can be numinous. Laura Chapman, Jungian Analyst, will discuss ways in which the material generated from our wounded places can be integrated to shape our consciousness as we evolve.
ABOUT LAURA CHAPMAN
Laura Chapman is a Jungian Analyst (2017) in private practice since 1980. Laura is an active member of Jung Cleveland as well as the Pittsburgh Society of Jungian Analysts (PSJA). She is also a member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA) and the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). Laura’s early work as a psychotherapist included a somatic approach aimed at developing the awareness between the body and mental/emotional processes. Her continued interest is how the conscious exploration of one’s wounded places can facilitate an opening for change, growth and the possibility of transformation.

Mythology gives us a glimpse into the deep structures of psyche. Join us as we look at Hindu mythology from a Jungian point of view. Hindu mythology in particular gives many of us a fresh, multicultural perspective on a shared archetypal experience. Participants will be given one myth each week and asked to bring questions to the group for deeper discussion.
This seminar will allow participants to:
1) Gain insight into archetypal structures of psyche and how they function in our lives;
2) Expand the lexicon of images and stories that frame and illuminate human experience.
3) Learn tools to use an archetypal lens in personal and/or clinical work.

Is there a larger driving force invested in our personal growth? Jung's unique notion of individuation offers a model of partnership between consciousness and the unconscious that offers paths to new insights and change, sometimes in spite of ourselves!
Join us as we define concepts of ego, Self, individuation, and the ego-Self axis, and explore how it can inform our ways of being in the world.
Facilitated by Jung Cleveland board members.
EXPLORING DREAMS FROM A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE
Facilitated by Jung Cleveland Board Members
Dreams can be a guide to the unknown aspects of psyche. When we try to get to know these hidden parts of ourselves, we move toward wholeness. This will be an introduction to working with our dreams in a small group setting. We will discuss techniques, but will not work with participants dreams. If there is interest, we will work toward forming additional ongoing dream groups. This program will be facilitated by Jung Cleveland Board members.

This 1990 documentary film features footage of interviews with Carl Jung himself. The film, therefore, is helpful in providing an up close and personal sense of this renowned pioneer in the field of Depth Psychology. In "The World Within", Jung speaks about various aspects of his approach to understanding thePsyche including working with dreams, imaginal figures, and the importance of ritual and fantasy. The film provides a glimpse into Jung's Red Book, the diary in which he recorded his dreams and imaginal life which he cites as leading to the development of his Psychological Theory. The film also provides footage of
