A PsychoSpiritual Worldview

A talk by Pittman McGehee
Faculty Member at Jung Platform

OCTOBER 9, 2021
11:00 am CDT

About this talk

 

In this session, Pittman McGehee talks about a psycho-spiritual worldview. Our worldview informs the way we live our life. It informs our value systems, the decisions we make, and our choices and behaviors. And while it may seem to be conscious, it has unconscious elements that, as Jung said, must be brought into consciousness by becoming aware of what is going on within us and in the collective. This realization of our essence — our Self — is what Jung called individuation. This means, we are not bound by fate; we have a choice on how to be in the world. We have the power to use our gifts and blessings in a way that makes a difference. But to do this, we must learn about the soul’s desire. The gateway to finding the soul’s desire is to have the willingness to be conscious — be ready to learn about ourselves and others. Because connection to our Self and other brings meaning and purpose as Pittman McGehee will show in this session.

Care of the World Soul - Thomas Moore

11:00 am CDT

 

Thomas Moore says, “Soul is not a thing but a quality or dimension of experiencing life and ourselves. It has to do with depth, value, relatedness, heart and personal substance.” In this session, Moore will take us on a way of seeing life that allows us to connect with the soul, especially in the everydayness of life. When the soul is neglected, it doesn't just go away. It appears symptomatically as obsessions, addictions, violence, and loss of meaning—symptoms, which send patients to seek therapy. If the soul's capacity for creativity is not honored, Mr. Moore maintains, it will wreak havoc instead. Thomas Moore gives us a little hint by stating that the “soul appears most easily in those places where we feel more inferior.”  To read more ...

Encounters With the World Soul - Robert Romanyshyn

12:00 pm CDT

 

In this session, Robert Romanyshyn guides us to a way of seeing and experiencing the Soul of the World. This way opens us to experience the miracles in the mundane, and the extraordinary in the ordinary. He will show that we can be a witness to the world—as a vale of soulmaking—through the beauty of all that surrounds us. To read more ...

Dream Work as Soul Work - Steve Aizenstat

1:00 pm CDT

 

Jung believed that dreams are doors that allowed us to access the “most secret recesses of the soul.” The technique developed by Dr. Stephen Aizenstat – Dream Tending – is rooted in Jung’s dream work and active imagination. According to Dr. Aizenstat, dreams are manifestations of the soul and by tending to our dreams, we tend to our soul. We can ensoul our daily life by paying attention to the dream figures, listening to, and befriending them. When we begin working with our dreams, the difference between night and day becomes less distinct in that the dream figures begin accompanying us even during the day, that is, the conscious part of our lives.  To read more ...

Soulful Relationships - Polly Young-Eisendrath

11:00 am CDT

 

In this session Polly Young-Eisendrath offers a perspective to find meaning and connection in our relationships. All relationships have a soul; relationships with a partner, friends, family members and relationships at work. Tending to the soul in relationships with others asks that we show up fully and witness the true emergence of oneself and the other. It requires willingness to learn, and it asks us to embrace our unconsciousness and our interdependence. We need an attitude of tolerance and reflection while we learn to perceive our relationships through a lens that is larger than our own individual feelings and concerns.  To read more ...

The Soul of Place - Chad Chaquist

12:00 pm CDT

 

In this session, Craig Chalquist illustrates that our psychological life is intertwined with our surroundings. Terrapsychology includes a suite of practices, ideas, and research methods to study how things of the world can get into our minds, hearts, bodies, and complexes. Craig exemplifies how the fantasies and dreams, moods and conflicts that we tend to take personally reflect in the events of the world such as rising breezes, packed freeways, lingering droughts, clicking crows, and cleaned rivers. As a child of eco- and depth psychology, terrapsychology illuminates our ongoing conversations with everything around us, near and far.  To read more ...

The Heroines Quest for Soul in Men and Women - Erica Lorentz

1:00 pm CDT

 

Join Jungian Analyst Erica Lorentz in this session about listening to the whispers of our Soul. Modern mythos pushes us to have a masculine, heroic attitude. But when we let go of this stance, we are on a journey to find and reconnect with our Soul. This session explores the qualities we need to develop to redeem our Soul and to reclaim our authentic life. When we draw upon fairytales and myths we may find guidance for the heroine’s voyage as Erica will illustrate. To rekindle the connection to our Soul, it is crucial to move beyond negative patriarchy in ourselves and the world. Through the inner pilgrimage to our own primal feminine power, present in both men and women, we can recover soulful living and also save the World Soul.  To read more ...

Befriend the Soul through Journaling - Susan Tiberghien

12:00 pm CDT

 

Join Jungian Analyst Susan Tiberghien in this session on befriending the soul through journaling. She views journaling as a voyage in self-discovery. A journal is a journey to a deeper understanding of ourselves. We slow down to sit and write. Journaling, therefore, is a spiritual practice, as Susan will clarify. With our choice of words, we give life to what we experience and how we imagine the world. Journaling can help us to get to know our soul and befriend it. Carl Jung also kept a journal where he wrote about his confrontations with the unconscious. He learned about his soul through a series of active imaginations. He wrote about his experiences in his journals (aka ‘the Black Books’ that he later transferred into the ‘Red Book’).  To read more ...

Knowing Yourself & a Soulful Life - Dariane Pictet

 

Join this session with Jungian Analyst Dariane Pictet as she shares why we need to know ourselves better to live a soulful life. When we don’t know what triggers us, we are locked in patterns that make us suffer. Anxiety, for example, keeps us separate from connecting deeply to what has value for us, to what makes us feel alive. Unwittingly, we distance ourselves from our soul, our potential, and the expression of our full creative selves. We all have complexes and getting to know them and having practices that help us to pause, breathe, before we jump in and act out, helps us connect to our soul.  To read more ...

Aging; From Role to Soul - Connie Zwieg

12:00 pm CDT

 

Join Connie Zweig in this session about transition into old age. She looks at aging as a rite of passage of letting go, of stepping into liminality, and of emerging renewed. We have to let go of the identification with our role in life and orient more deeply to the soul. We need to loosen the grip of our productive life so that something can make this shift from role to soul. We might, however, still choose to be active, but we will be doing it with a different purpose. That is, we will be working with a different state of mind and connected to something larger.  To read more ...

Love of Soul; Eros and Psyche - Stacey Shelby

1:00 pm CDT

 

Romantic relationships are often laden with psychological expectations, which can be of mythic proportions. Dr. Shelby examines some of the key relationship myths, particularly the myth of Psyche and Eros, because it mines the treasures of depth psychological thinking about love. We spend so much of our life yearning for something (or someone). Many of our apparent “goals" and things we believe we want, turn out to be a concealment of our true aspirations. Our deepest wants are not reducible to physical or material goods, or even to a physical person; they are psychological longings for love, integrity, sincerity, and purpose. These longings carry within them qualities that are beautiful, valuable, and deserving of our devotion. When we can see this symbolic meaning that the soul is yearning for, we cease to reduce things to a tangible object (that never fulfills us) such as a home, a vehicle, a better job, or a human being.  To read more ...
