Thoreau said that many people are living “lives of quiet desperation,” and that “an unconscious despair is concealed under what are called the games and amusements of mankind.” In this lecture/colloquium we will discuss the problem of suffering, the effects of suffering on the personality, and a variety of approaches to suffering found in depth psychology. Dr. Corbett will look at ways to find meaning in suffering, times when suffering can be seen as an initiatory process into a new level of consciousness, and the process of radical acceptance of suffering in situations in which it cannot be changed. We will also look at some of the traditional spiritual approaches to suffering and contrast these with a psychological approach. States of mind such as envy, hatred, grief, and loneliness cause enormous suffering. Many such forms of mental pain are difficult to put into words. This workshop will be divided into two parts; we will begin by discussing some of the sources of these painful emotions and suggest ways in which they may be approached from a depth psychological point of view.

In the second part of the workshop, individuals will have an opportunity to present their cases, and we will continue the theme of suffering by discussing the problems of cruelty to others, torture, and the psychology of the torturer. We will discuss the suffering produced by self-inflicted pain in masochism, religious asceticism, and sacrifice. We will end with a discussion of the vital role of the witness when helping others who suffer.

Lionel Corbett, M.D., was trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. A professor of depth psychology at Pacifca Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California, he has written many professional papers and four books: The Religious Function of the Psyche, Psyche and the Sacred: Spirituality Beyond Religion, The Sacred Cauldron: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Practice, and most recently, The Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Suffering.

A Study in Dreams
Presented by Rev. Tina Newberry, M.R.E.
Sorry, this group is FULL

4 Sundays, 4:00 - 6:00 PM, August 6, 13, 20, 27
Limited to 12 participants.
Location: Recovery St. Louis Office, 8029 Clayton Road, Suite 1, 63117
Fee: Friends $60, Others $80 (8 CEUs)

In the late 1930's, Jung taught a four-year seminar on children’s dreams and on the historical literature of dream interpretation. Not until 2008, did the English-speaking world have access to Jung's and the participants' notes as contained in the book Children's Dreams: Notes from the Seminar Given in 1936-1940. The seminar notes on the historical literature was not available in English until 2014 in the book Dream Interpretation: Ancient and Modern.

As the participants in Jung's seminars quickly discovered, studying children's dreams is a perfect way to learn how to work with the dreams. Not only did the participants broaden their understanding of the psychological development of the children as mirrored in their dreams, but they also grew to understand the basic structure and dynamics of dreams and how to amplify dreams for understanding. This summer's study group will use selected readings from the Children's Dreams book to join Jung's dream seminar group to see what they can learn about how one's psychological self grows as mirrored in children's dreams and how to use a dream's structure, context, and symbols to learn how to work their own dreams.

Rev. Tina Newberry is a certified Spiritual Director in the Jungian tradition, an educator, and a writer. She holds a Master of Arts in Religious Education, graduate certificates in the teaching of writing and the Clinical Training Program in Analytical Psychotherapy from the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago, a program she now co-directs.
