DIVERSITY DIALOGUES
TUESDAY 01.29.08, NOON –1 PM, 40 Peik Hall
Audrey Appelsies

The Complex Social Production of White Racial Identities: Dilemmas of (Re)presenting

In this presentation, I highlight the dilemmas of (re)presenting white research subjects as part of ongoing social justice work. Specifically, research participant Darrin’s stories evoked methodological and theoretical dilemmas because of the particular power dynamics encapsulated in his relationship to his student Antonio and my hope to complicate prior conceptions of white teachers represented in the research. This presentation will build descriptions of, and theoretical insights about, the racial identities of white educators and their students, and how these identities play out and are constituted in teaching and learning.

COME JOIN US FOR THE DIALOGUE... TUESDAY, JANUARY 29TH.

Audrey Appelsies is a fellow working on the issue of educational disparities at the University of Minnesota's Children, Youth and Family Consortium. Her research focuses on white teachers' experiences working in urban schools with students of color. At CYFC, Dr. Appelsies is directing a research working group to inform the Minnesota State Legislature on best practices in education to end the achievement gap. She also works with community groups, school board leaders, educational activists, and researchers throughout the university to address equity and access in K-12 school systems.

Announcing the next Minnesota Jung Assocaition Salon:
"Exploring the Muse Relationship & Jung's Concept of the Anima - from Dante to James Blunt"
Presented by Jim Klein
Friday, October 26, 2007, 7:15-9:30 PM
Stub Hall Lounge, Lutheran Seminary, Hendon & Fulham, St. Paul (2 blocks east of Hwy 280)
Admission $5.00 (first-time guests admitted free)

Why are so many moved by the story of Dante and Beatrice, the woman to whom he dedicated his life's creative work, though he barely knew her? Why did James Blunt's simple little pop song "You're Beautiful" strike such a chord in 2005-6 that some radio stations were playing it as frequently as once each hour? In the Pat Conroy novel (and movie) “The Prince of Tides?, why does Tom Wingo's closing soliloquy seem so... well... perfect? My belief is that Dante, Blunt, and Wingo each experienced a Muse Relationship, and that Muse is not so much a relationship between a man and a woman as it is a relationship between a man and his own anima - his unconscious feminine aspect. We’ll clarify what the Muse Relationship is – and what it is not. We'll explore what author Francine Prose (“The Lives of the Muses?) has to say about men who have had Muse Relationships and women who have served as Muse. We’ll sample what such Jungian writers as Robert A. Johnson, James Hillman, James Hollis, Emma Jung, and Marie-Louise von Franz have said about the anima and its projection. We’ll examine the life of Dante’s Victorian-era namesake Dante Gabriel Rossetti as an example of how to get the Muse Relationship “all wrong?. Along the way, for the benefit of those who have never been involved in a Muse Relationship (or aren’t aware that they have), I may share a few stories from personal experience.

Jim Klein is a self-taught Jungian, a mid-life development for which he has many people to thank, not least his own Muse Relationship. He holds a B.S. from Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, both in Chemical Engineering. He has worked at 3M Center in St. Paul for 23 years, 13 as a research and development scientist and the last 10 as a patent law professional. An Inventor with 8 US Patents, he is a Registered Patent Agent with the US Patent & Trademark Office. A 7-year member of MJA, he has served on its Board of Directors, and has presented twice previously in the MJA Salon series. He readily admits to being a serial anima-projector/Muse-Relater, and is proud of his happy 30-year marriage to current MJA Treasurer Annearle Morris Klein. He invites the curious and/or dubious to attend the Salon to learn how and why there is no contradiction or conflict inherent in that!

Winnipeg Narrative Therapy presents Julie Tilsen (Vancouver BC) & David Nylund (Sacramento, CA) Winnipeg, November 19th and 20th 2007

Beyond “Diversity?: Queering Your Practice for Social Justice

Taking the somewhat queer position that therapy is a political act where stories of resistance can be found and brought forward, Julie and Dave invite participants to examine issues of power and privilege that serve as the undergirding of systems of oppression. In this experiential and practice-based workshop, participants will explore issues of oppression that cut across various social locations. Consideration for intersectionality and a focus on how these systems of dominance impact our work will be emphasized.

Productive investigation of our own initiation into dominant ideas about race, class, sex and gender, conceptual foundations that are just and ethical, and clinical skills that are responsive to client preferences will be discussed and demonstrated. Self-reflection, theory, and application will be combined as we examine work with queer clients from a social justice and critical multicultural framework. Drawing from current thinking in the areas of critical multiculturalism, post-colonial and queer theory, we examine the dilemmas and possibilities that emerge when identity is constructed based on gender and sexuality.

Workshops

The Grant Institute: Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication will be held at Northwestern University , July 9 - 13, 2007. Interested development professionals, researchers, faculty, and graduate students should register as soon as possible, as demand means that seats will fill up quickly. Please forward, post, and distribute this e-mail to your colleagues and listservs.

All participants will receive certification in professional grant writing from the Institute, as well as 3.5 CEU units. For more information call (888) 824 - 4424 or visit The Grant Institute at www.thegrantinstitute.com

Please find the program description below:
The Grant Institute
Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication will be held at
Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, July 9 - 13, 2007, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Grant Institute: Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication is a five-day intensive and interactive experience in which participants will be led through the program development, grant writing, and funding acquisition processes through the completion of four courses. The Grant Institute is not a seminar. Participants will actively engage in exercises and activities designed to strengthen their mastery of grant acquisition. Through the completion of varying assignments, students will leave The Grant Institute with a real grant proposal outline complete with quality research, solid content, and expert review. The Grant Institute focuses on combining the fundamentals of grant proposal writing with expert knowledge of communication principles such as Strategic Research, Persuasion, Argumentation, and Framing.

The Grant Institute trainers and consultants do not merely lecture participants, but act as personal consultants and coaches dedicated to encouraging participants to succeed beyond their own expectations. While The Grant Institute uses collaboration and small groups for many exercises, each participant will work on their organization's pro ject. Participants are not overwhelmed with negativity or discouragement, but will be given the highest level of expertise to generate confidence in pursuing any funding project.

At The Grant Institute , participants don't j ust learn to write grant proposals from top to bottom. Participants become specialists in our unique area of expertise: Grant Communication. Simply put, this is not your grandfather's grantwriting workshop. Our graduates are strategic, innovative, and confident. Whether you are new to professional grantwriting, or an experienced professional, you will not want to miss The Grant Institute.

The Grant Institute consists of four (4) courses that will be completed during the five-day workshop.

(1) Program Development and Evaluation
This course is centered around the belief that "it's all about the program." This intensive course will teach professional program development essentials and program evaluation. While most grantwriting "workshops" treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship between overall program planning and all strategic communication, including grantwriting. Consistent in our belief in grant communication, this class encourages students to understand successful program development and to think strategically about funding as an integral part of the overall program planning process. This class turns students into experts by teaching how to take ideas and concepts and turn them into professionally developed programs.

(2) Advanced Grant Writing
Designed for both the novice and experienced grantwriter, this course will make each student an overall fundraising communication specialist. In addition to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal, successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grantwriting, this course is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this course's intent to illustrate grantwriting as an integrated, multidimensional, and dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and to start writing the story. Ultimately, this class will illustrate how each component of the grant proposal represents an opportunity to use proven techniques for generating support.

(3) Strategic Grant Research
At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation, corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will teach a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications and directories which contain information about foundation, corporation, and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use research as part of a strategic communication effort.

(4) Advanced Communication Strategies: Institute for Communication Improvement Persuasion and Argumentation Techniques
This course, designed by Institute for Communication Improvement, will provide students with an arsenal of advanced persuasion and argumentation techniques. Centered around expert communication principles, this class will change the way students conceptualize grant proposals and other fundraising tools. Students will leave this course with ICI's masterful methods and will be more than j ust confident grantwriters, but communication specialists. This course is grounded on the idea that fundraising and nonprofit development represent profound communication activity. Without question, this course is part of The Grant Institute difference.

Registration

$997.00 tuition includes all materials and certificates.

Each student will receive:
*The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication
*The Grant Institute's Guide to Successful Grant Writing
*Grant Institute Grant Writer's Workbook with sample proposals, forms, and outlines
*3.5 CEU Units, Association of Fundraising Professionals
*The Grant Institute's 2007 Funding Resource CD

THE MINNESOTA JUNG ASSOCIATION

Through the generosity of the
MINNESOTA SEMINAR IN JUNGIAN STUDIES

Presents: Wolfgang Giegerich
Lecture: “The Advent of the Guest Shadow Integration and the Rise of Psychology?

Friday, May 11, 2007; 7:30 to 9:30 P.M. (Registration begins at 7:00 P.M.); Macalester College, Carnegie Hall, Room G-6

Admission: Members: $15
Non-Members: $20

In the early paper upon which this lecture is based, Jungian Analyst Wolfgang Giegerich writes: “….in discussing the shadow theme, I do not simply wish to report on empirical findings in therapy or to present a theory of the shadow as part of psychology. I want to discuss shadow integration as the process of the emergence of psychology which can be seen both on the collective level and as a person’s initiation into psychology. This rise of psychology has to be seen exclusively in the context of the history of the Christian West. As much as classical Greek thought about the psyche and Germanic archaic “psychology? may have influenced the Occident, the Christianization of Europe and the upheaval of the entire European population are a caesura that psychologically amounts to a second beginning of history……First shadow, then anima----this means the shadow is the Bringer of Soul, the herald of that future whose ‘real problem will be the psychological one.’

…The strange guest comes to us not all at once. We shall watch it approach through five different stages, each time in another guise. The integration of the shadow involves a passing through all of them, acquiring in each something new….What is at stake here is psychology’s coming into its own, into the logically psychological status of consciousness within a defined historical context.?

The five stages are:
I: The Enemy or Crusade Stage
II: The Heretic or witch-Hunt stage
III: The Turncoat or Subversion Stage
IV: The Mea Culpa Stage
V: The Hospitality Stage or the Accomplished Integration

Wolfgang Giegerich is a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice near Munich, Germany. He has lectured widely, has been a regular speaker at the Eranos conferences, and has frequently taught as Visiting Professor at Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. He was the founding editor of “GORGO?, a German journal of archetypal psychology. Of his more than 150 publications (including nine books) his latest books available in English are: The Soul's Logical Life, Dialectics and Analytical Psychology (with David Miller and Greg Mogenson), and The Neurosis of Psychology. The latter is Vol. I of The Collected English Papers of Wolfgang Giegerich. The product of over three decades of critical reflection, Giegerich's English papers are collected in four volumes: The Neurosis of Psychology (Vol. 1); Technology and the Soul (Vol.2); Soul-Violence (Vol.3); and The Soul Always Thinks (Vol.4.).

We are able to present Dr Giegerich this evening courtesy of the MN Seminar in Jungian Studies, which has flown him to the Twin City area to speak to the Seminar participants.

Minnesota Jung Association Presents A Lecture by Bradley Tepaske
Friday, March 9, 2007 from 7:30-9:30 pm
Macalester College—Carnegie Hall Room G-6
(registration begins at 7:00 pm)

Hieronymus Bosch’s ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’?

The enchanting painting by Hieronymus Bosch (1453-1516) represents a most enigmatic interpretive puzzle of Northern Renaissance art, an archetypal cart-wheel across the sensual skin of the Great Mother, and an unwitting celebration of Aphrodite and Eros in the medieval Christian psyche of the Low Countries.

Employing lovely detailed slides of the famous triptych in its entirety, Dr. TePaske will explore Bosch’s historical and religious milieu, his portrayal of the extremes of the senses from their innocence in Paradise to their outrage in Hell, and the work’s significance on varied mythical and psychological parameters.

Bradley A TePaske is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst and a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles and Pacific Palisades, California. He holds an MFA in Printmaking, and had studied with two noted Northern Renaissance scholars, Charles Cuttler at Iowa and Craig Harbison at UMASS. A frequent lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute of L.A., Dr. TePaske is also a religious historian, a mythologist, a teacher of Gnosticism, Magdalen/ Sophia lore and the Graeco-Roman Mystery Religions---and a devoted environmental and anti-war activist. Brad is a past president of the Minnesota Jung Association. We are able to present him this evening through the courtesy of the MN Seminar in Jungian studies.

Sleep on it! - The Practice of Dream Incubation

Dream incubation has been practiced throughout the world since ancient times. In many cultures, specific rituals were used to enhance ones ability to solve problems and to receive divine guidance through dreams. Today, many people continue to use dream incubation techniques as a vital part of their creative process. In this salon, Sheila McNellis Asato will introduce the practice of dream incubation and lead us through a series of exercises that will stimulate the imagination and show how we can welcome the wisdom of the dreaming mind to help us with problems from waking life. At the end of the salon, Sheila will take us through a guided imagery to practice our new skills before going home to sleep on it!

TONIGHT!

Brian Feldman, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst “Individuation, Identity, and the Self: A Jungian and Post-Jungian View of Development Through the Life Cycle?

TONIGHT!! Friday night, October 13, 2006

Macalester College, Carnegie Hall, Room G-6
7:30 to 9:30 PM (Registration begins at 7:00 PM)
Members: $15.00 Non-Members: $20.00 Students: $10.00

This most unusual lecture will offer us a different perspective on the origin of Jung’s theories of individuation, identity, and Self. Dr. Feldman will discuss Jung’s personal experiences and cultural context and the role they played in the formulation of his theories. He will show slides of some places and spaces important to these connections. He will also discuss the post-Jungian theories of Michael Fordham, renowned British child analyst, and how they extended and expanded Jung’s original formula-tions. Fordham was an editor of Jung’s collected works and had an intimate knowledge of Jung and his theories-- which he shared with Dr. Feldman while he was the latter’s supervisor and mentor.

WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR THIS STIMULATING EVENING!

DIVERSITY DIALOGUES
TUESDAY 01.29.08, NOON –1 PM, 40 Peik Hall
Audrey Appelsies

The Complex Social Production of White Racial Identities: Dilemmas of (Re)presenting

In this presentation, I highlight the dilemmas of (re)presenting white research subjects as part of ongoing social justice work. Specifically, research participant Darrin’s stories evoked methodological and theoretical dilemmas because of the particular power dynamics encapsulated in his relationship to his student Antonio and my hope to complicate prior conceptions of white teachers represented in the research. This presentation will build descriptions of, and theoretical insights about, the racial identities of white educators and their students, and how these identities play out and are constituted in teaching and learning.

COME JOIN US FOR THE DIALOGUE... TUESDAY, JANUARY 29TH.

Audrey Appelsies is a fellow working on the issue of educational disparities at the University of Minnesota's Children, Youth and Family Consortium. Her research focuses on white teachers' experiences working in urban schools with students of color. At CYFC, Dr. Appelsies is directing a research working group to inform the Minnesota State Legislature on best practices in education to end the achievement gap. She also works with community groups, school board leaders, educational activists, and researchers throughout the university to address equity and access in K-12 school systems.

Announcing the next Minnesota Jung Assocaition Salon:
"Exploring the Muse Relationship & Jung's Concept of the Anima - from Dante to James Blunt"
Presented by Jim Klein
Friday, October 26, 2007, 7:15-9:30 PM
Stub Hall Lounge, Lutheran Seminary, Hendon & Fulham, St. Paul (2 blocks east of Hwy 280)
Admission $5.00 (first-time guests admitted free)

Why are so many moved by the story of Dante and Beatrice, the woman to whom he dedicated his life's creative work, though he barely knew her? Why did James Blunt's simple little pop song "You're Beautiful" strike such a chord in 2005-6 that some radio stations were playing it as frequently as once each hour? In the Pat Conroy novel (and movie) “The Prince of Tides?, why does Tom Wingo's closing soliloquy seem so... well... perfect? My belief is that Dante, Blunt, and Wingo each experienced a Muse Relationship, and that Muse is not so much a relationship between a man and a woman as it is a relationship between a man and his own anima - his unconscious feminine aspect. We’ll clarify what the Muse Relationship is – and what it is not. We'll explore what author Francine Prose (“The Lives of the Muses?) has to say about men who have had Muse Relationships and women who have served as Muse. We’ll sample what such Jungian writers as Robert A. Johnson, James Hillman, James Hollis, Emma Jung, and Marie-Louise von Franz have said about the anima and its projection. We’ll examine the life of Dante’s Victorian-era namesake Dante Gabriel Rossetti as an example of how to get the Muse Relationship “all wrong?. Along the way, for the benefit of those who have never been involved in a Muse Relationship (or aren’t aware that they have), I may share a few stories from personal experience.

Jim Klein is a self-taught Jungian, a mid-life development for which he has many people to thank, not least his own Muse Relationship. He holds a B.S. from Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, both in Chemical Engineering. He has worked at 3M Center in St. Paul for 23 years, 13 as a research and development scientist and the last 10 as a patent law professional. An Inventor with 8 US Patents, he is a Registered Patent Agent with the US Patent & Trademark Office. A 7-year member of MJA, he has served on its Board of Directors, and has presented twice previously in the MJA Salon series. He readily admits to being a serial anima-projector/Muse-Relater, and is proud of his happy 30-year marriage to current MJA Treasurer Annearle Morris Klein. He invites the curious and/or dubious to attend the Salon to learn how and why there is no contradiction or conflict inherent in that!

Winnipeg Narrative Therapy presents Julie Tilsen (Vancouver BC) & David Nylund (Sacramento, CA) Winnipeg, November 19th and 20th 2007

Beyond “Diversity?: Queering Your Practice for Social Justice

Taking the somewhat queer position that therapy is a political act where stories of resistance can be found and brought forward, Julie and Dave invite participants to examine issues of power and privilege that serve as the undergirding of systems of oppression. In this experiential and practice-based workshop, participants will explore issues of oppression that cut across various social locations. Consideration for intersectionality and a focus on how these systems of dominance impact our work will be emphasized.

Productive investigation of our own initiation into dominant ideas about race, class, sex and gender, conceptual foundations that are just and ethical, and clinical skills that are responsive to client preferences will be discussed and demonstrated. Self-reflection, theory, and application will be combined as we examine work with queer clients from a social justice and critical multicultural framework. Drawing from current thinking in the areas of critical multiculturalism, post-colonial and queer theory, we examine the dilemmas and possibilities that emerge when identity is constructed based on gender and sexuality.

Workshops

The Grant Institute: Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication will be held at Northwestern University , July 9 - 13, 2007. Interested development professionals, researchers, faculty, and graduate students should register as soon as possible, as demand means that seats will fill up quickly. Please forward, post, and distribute this e-mail to your colleagues and listservs.

All participants will receive certification in professional grant writing from the Institute, as well as 3.5 CEU units. For more information call (888) 824 - 4424 or visit The Grant Institute at www.thegrantinstitute.com

Please find the program description below:
The Grant Institute
Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication will be held at
Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, July 9 - 13, 2007, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Grant Institute: Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication is a five-day intensive and interactive experience in which participants will be led through the program development, grant writing, and funding acquisition processes through the completion of four courses. The Grant Institute is not a seminar. Participants will actively engage in exercises and activities designed to strengthen their mastery of grant acquisition. Through the completion of varying assignments, students will leave The Grant Institute with a real grant proposal outline complete with quality research, solid content, and expert review. The Grant Institute focuses on combining the fundamentals of grant proposal writing with expert knowledge of communication principles such as Strategic Research, Persuasion, Argumentation, and Framing.

The Grant Institute trainers and consultants do not merely lecture participants, but act as personal consultants and coaches dedicated to encouraging participants to succeed beyond their own expectations. While The Grant Institute uses collaboration and small groups for many exercises, each participant will work on their organization's pro ject. Participants are not overwhelmed with negativity or discouragement, but will be given the highest level of expertise to generate confidence in pursuing any funding project.

At The Grant Institute , participants don't j ust learn to write grant proposals from top to bottom. Participants become specialists in our unique area of expertise: Grant Communication. Simply put, this is not your grandfather's grantwriting workshop. Our graduates are strategic, innovative, and confident. Whether you are new to professional grantwriting, or an experienced professional, you will not want to miss The Grant Institute.

The Grant Institute consists of four (4) courses that will be completed during the five-day workshop.

(1) Program Development and Evaluation
This course is centered around the belief that "it's all about the program." This intensive course will teach professional program development essentials and program evaluation. While most grantwriting "workshops" treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship between overall program planning and all strategic communication, including grantwriting. Consistent in our belief in grant communication, this class encourages students to understand successful program development and to think strategically about funding as an integral part of the overall program planning process. This class turns students into experts by teaching how to take ideas and concepts and turn them into professionally developed programs.

(2) Advanced Grant Writing
Designed for both the novice and experienced grantwriter, this course will make each student an overall fundraising communication specialist. In addition to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal, successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grantwriting, this course is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this course's intent to illustrate grantwriting as an integrated, multidimensional, and dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and to start writing the story. Ultimately, this class will illustrate how each component of the grant proposal represents an opportunity to use proven techniques for generating support.

(3) Strategic Grant Research
At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation, corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will teach a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications and directories which contain information about foundation, corporation, and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use research as part of a strategic communication effort.

(4) Advanced Communication Strategies: Institute for Communication Improvement Persuasion and Argumentation Techniques
This course, designed by Institute for Communication Improvement, will provide students with an arsenal of advanced persuasion and argumentation techniques. Centered around expert communication principles, this class will change the way students conceptualize grant proposals and other fundraising tools. Students will leave this course with ICI's masterful methods and will be more than j ust confident grantwriters, but communication specialists. This course is grounded on the idea that fundraising and nonprofit development represent profound communication activity. Without question, this course is part of The Grant Institute difference.

Registration

$997.00 tuition includes all materials and certificates.

Each student will receive:
*The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication

THE MINNESOTA JUNG ASSOCIATION

Through the generosity of the
MINNESOTA SEMINAR IN JUNGIAN STUDIES

Presents: Wolfgang Giegerich
Lecture: “The Advent of the Guest Shadow Integration and the Rise of Psychology?

Friday, May 11, 2007; 7:30 to 9:30 P.M. (Registration begins at 7:00 P.M.); Macalester College, Carnegie Hall, Room G-6

Admission: Members: $15
Non-Members: $20

In the early paper upon which this lecture is based, Jungian Analyst Wolfgang Giegerich writes: “….in discussing the shadow theme, I do not simply wish to report on empirical findings in therapy or to present a theory of the shadow as part of psychology. I want to discuss shadow integration as the process of the emergence of psychology which can be seen both on the collective level and as a person’s initiation into psychology. This rise of psychology has to be seen exclusively in the context of the history of the Christian West. As much as classical Greek thought about the psyche and Germanic archaic “psychology? may have influenced the Occident, the Christianization of Europe and the upheaval of the entire European population are a caesura that psychologically amounts to a second beginning of history……First shadow, then anima----this means the shadow is the Bringer of Soul, the herald of that future whose ‘real problem will be the psychological one.’

…The strange guest comes to us not all at once. We shall watch it approach through five different stages, each time in another guise. The integration of the shadow involves a passing through all of them, acquiring in each something new….What is at stake here is psychology’s coming into its own, into the logically psychological status of consciousness within a defined historical context.?

The five stages are:
I: The Enemy or Crusade Stage
II: The Heretic or witch-Hunt stage
III: The Turncoat or Subversion Stage
IV: The Mea Culpa Stage
V: The Hospitality Stage or the Accomplished Integration

Wolfgang Giegerich is a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice near Munich, Germany. He has lectured widely, has been a regular speaker at the Eranos conferences, and has frequently taught as Visiting Professor at Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. He was the founding editor of “GORGO?, a German journal of archetypal psychology. Of his more than 150 publications (including nine books) his latest books available in English are: The Soul's Logical Life, Dialectics and Analytical Psychology (with David Miller and Greg Mogenson), and The Neurosis of Psychology. The latter is Vol. I of The Collected English Papers of Wolfgang Giegerich. The product of over three decades of critical reflection, Giegerich's English papers are collected in four volumes: The Neurosis of Psychology (Vol. 1); Technology and the Soul (Vol.2); Soul-Violence (Vol.3); and The Soul Always Thinks (Vol.4.).

We are able to present Dr Giegerich this evening courtesy of the MN Seminar in Jungian Studies, which has flown him to the Twin City area to speak to the Seminar participants.

Minnesota Jung Association Presents A Lecture by Bradley Tepaske
Friday, March 9, 2007 from 7:30-9:30 pm
Macalester College—Carnegie Hall Room G-6
(registration begins at 7:00 pm)

Hieronymus Bosch’s ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’?

The enchanting painting by Hieronymus Bosch (1453-1516) represents a most enigmatic interpretive puzzle of Northern Renaissance art, an archetypal cart-wheel across the sensual skin of the Great Mother, and an unwitting celebration of Aphrodite and Eros in the medieval Christian psyche of the Low Countries.

Employing lovely detailed slides of the famous triptych in its entirety, Dr. TePaske will explore Bosch’s historical and religious milieu, his portrayal of the extremes of the senses from their innocence in Paradise to their outrage in Hell, and the work’s significance on varied mythical and psychological parameters.

Bradley A TePaske is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst and a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles and Pacific Palisades, California. He holds an MFA in Printmaking, and had studied with two noted Northern Renaissance scholars, Charles Cuttler at Iowa and Craig Harbison at UMASS. A frequent lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute of L.A., Dr. TePaske is also a religious historian, a mythologist, a teacher of Gnosticism, Magdalen/ Sophia lore and the Graeco-Roman Mystery Religions---and a devoted environmental and anti-war activist. Brad is a past president of the Minnesota Jung Association. We are able to present him this evening through the courtesy of the MN Seminar in Jungian studies.

Sleep on it! - The Practice of Dream Incubation

Dream incubation has been practiced throughout the world since ancient times. In many cultures, specific rituals were used to enhance ones ability to solve problems and to receive divine guidance through dreams. Today, many people continue to use dream incubation techniques as a vital part of their creative process. In this salon, Sheila McNellis Asato will introduce the practice of dream incubation and lead us through a series of exercises that will stimulate the imagination and show how we can welcome the wisdom of the dreaming mind to help us with problems from waking life. At the end of the salon, Sheila will take us through a guided imagery to practice our new skills before going home to sleep on it!

TONIGHT!! Friday night, October 13, 2006

7:30 to 9:30 PM (Registration begins at 7:00 PM)
Members: $15.00 Non-Members: $20.00 Students: $10.00

This most unusual lecture will offer us a different perspective on the origin of Jung’s theories of individuation, identity, and Self. Dr. Feldman will discuss Jung’s personal experiences and cultural context and the role they played in the formulation of his theories. He will show slides of some places and spaces important to these connections. He will also discuss the post-Jungian theories of Michael Fordham, renowned British child analyst, and how they extended and expanded Jung’s original formula-tions. Fordham was an editor of Jung’s collected works and had an intimate knowledge of Jung and his theories-- which he shared with Dr. Feldman while he was the latter’s supervisor and mentor.

WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR THIS STIMULATING EVENING!
