About The Program
Active imagination is a therapeutic practice in analytical psychology in which emotions, fantasies, and spontaneously occurring images are given form through artistic expression and engaged in dialogue for the purpose of understanding their symbolic meaning. Jung developed this imaginal process experientially through his own self-healing during a troubled period in his life following his break with his mentor, Freud, and later incorporated it into his analytic work.

In Jung on Active Imagination, Joan Chodorow writes, “Jung’s analytic method is based on the natural healing function of the imagination. . . . All the creative art psychotherapies (art, dance, music, drama, poetry) as well as Sandplay can trace their roots to Jung’s early contribution.”

Jung held that continued practice not only widens one’s consciousness but also develops the inner capacity to break one’s dependence on an analyst to mediate the process, thereby “attaining liberation by one’s own efforts and . . . finding the courage to be oneself.”

In this overview, participants will learn about and discuss the process, background, theory, and some applications of active imagination.

About This Meeting
C.J Jung used color symbolism in exploring the conscious and unconsciousness.   Jung viewed color as a primary component of human experience and symbolic of psychic processes. Because of their qualitative properties—a type of qualia—colors can say a great deal about the modes of consciousness.

We will explore Carl Jung’s analytical thinking, experiential findings and evolution on the subject and I will additionally outline an overview of color psychology as it has evolved and understood today.

You are encouraged to read the article “The Spectrum of Consciousness” by Kiley Q. Laughlin and discussion found online at http://typeindepth.com/2015/10/the-spectrum-of-consciousness/comment-page-1/#comment-78199 (permission grated by the author to present and discuss). This article covers Color Symbolism in the Typology of C. G. Jung, the Missing Fourth, Dreams and Visions, Parallels in Eastern Culture and The Psychoid Factor.
We will explore, discuss and comment on the subject at the meeting.
