The Archetypal Theater Inside You: Reflections on Theater and Depth Psychology

Going to the theater is a form of Depth Psychology in the way we are able to witness Psyche’s reflecting upon what was constellating in our psychic reaches and getting played out on the wider cultural stage. Both in the inner and outer theaters, we act out the drama of our complexes and, in our dreams, we come face to face with the many characters inside us who “strut and fret their hour upon the stage.” Carl Jung himself found inspiration from Goethe’s play, Faust, and used its poetry and plot to infuse the creation of his psychology, A Jungian lens can give us a glimpse of that archetypal theater inside each of us that seeks expression in the limelight. Presented by Constance Evans Romero, LPC, LMFT, Jungian Analyst graduated from the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. She is in private practice in the New Orleans area. She is on the faculty of the Florida and New Orleans Jung Seminars. She has a background in theater as an actor and director. Her memoir, The Cane is Crying: Notes on Katrina, was published in Psychological Perspectives.

Dreams: Lost Language of God

Ever notice how seriously Bible Characters like Jacob and Joseph took their dreams? Ever wonder why present day believers do not?

This workshop shows you how to begin recognizing, understanding and interpreting the Voice of God in your dreams. Jungian Therapist Diana McKendree (faculty member at the Haden Institute) and Pastor Lance Sawyer team up to bring you a method of dream-work which blends the best of Jungian psychology with the sacred biblical tradition. In this introductory workshop, you’ll gain a basic framework for interpreting your dreams. You’ll experience the process firsthand through both individual and small group dream-work. This workshop is a doorway into a new world of ancient insights where you will discover the Lost Language of God.

Cost: Resident $195.00 Commuter $150.00. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of registration. Lodging and meals are included in the resident price. Meals only are included in the Commuter price.

Lisa Brown, Dance Movement Therapist

Lisa Brown is a dance/movement therapist who believes in actively including the body in the therapeutic process. She has studied and practiced Authentic Movement, Body-Mind Centering and Healing Touch and art in therapy for many years. She has a deep reverence for the body of works by Jung and Jungian analysts. In this life our bodies long for our attendance, they long to be given the time/space to be listened to and to speak. As we move towards wholeness and increasing aliveness we must learn to pay attention to and for the body’s voices and wisdom. This attendance is an act of ascending and descending simultaneously, of bringing the care and compassion of our attention to life lived through and in body. Embodiment involves using our wonderful bodily resources—breath, voice, movement, stillness, sensation and sensory awareness, feelings and the imagination—to descend into and live within our body as a container, a vessel for life herself. This is a process that happens in the beginning with help from another/others and later with our own courage, strength and desire. This workshop is created for the learning and practicing of many ways of bringing ourselves to more embodied states so we can increase our capacity to feel more alive/lively. We will use our breath, voice, movement, sensation and the embodiment of images (active imagination) during our time together.

NOTE: Please wear loose, comfortable clothes. Consider bringing any of the following: a cushion or pillow or back
jack to sit on; a journal and/or art notebook and art materials; your dream journal; water and snacks; and anything else you might need to be comfortable.

Cost: $150.00

Edge of the Forest
In this lecture, Jungian Analyst and Indigenous Elder, Muriel McMahon discusses how the roots of Ancient wisdom, born from all traditions, remind us of our place in the cycle of life. To awaken we must journey to the Edge of the Forest, and acknowledge the grief which clouds our vision, tightens our throats, and sits heavy on our hearts. We must remember how to sit together, and through ceremony, open our eyes, throats, and hearts to the wisdom of the Ancient Ones who are ever with us and ever praying for us.

Muriel E. McMahon is a Canadian analyst, teacher, and Elder in the Algonkin, Kipawa First Nations tradition. Trained as a Jungian analyst in Zurich Switzerland, with the C. G. Jung Institute and the International School of Analytical Psychology, she is currently in private practice in Guelph, ON. Canada. Her connections to her indigenous roots, her academic pursuits, her creative writing, and her Jungian analytical practice affirm her belief that the “tribal unconscious” and the “primitive psyche” can lead all of us home to the Sacred Fire of the Great Peace.
