    Connecting with Culture Through Psychological Types
    John Beebe, MD, Jungian Analyst
    “Joseph Henderson named four basic cultural attitudes that he saw as already established before depth psychology arrived. These were the religious attitude, the philosophical attitude, the aesthetic attitude, and the social attitude. Naming, for his own post-Jungian time, a fifth cultural attitude, the psychological attitude, he argued that depth psychology gives us a new way to include culture that takes into account the needs of individuals already engaged in self-realization to find an adaptation that does not undo the individuation that has become a way of life for them. Having an understanding of the different types of psychological consciousness Jung identified in Psychological Types, gives us a sense of the building blocks out of which a cultural attitude is constructed.” Dr. Beebe “provides a model for how it is possible to stretch one’s native consciousness (one’s ‘psychological type’) to traverse the gulf between self and Other that a psychological bridge to culture will have to span.”
  • 04.13-14.2018
    Monsters of the Unconscious
    Carolyn Bates, PhD, Jungian Analyst
    The current discontent in our culture carries ripe opportunities for fantasies of the Apocalypse. The ground of long-known security has cracked beneath us, foundations have shifted, and “monsters” rush towards us, not content to slumber. Jung said we meet “monsters” such as these at key moments of our psychological growth, bringing us vital messages and warnings about the psychological status quo. What messages could the monsters be bringing us?
