Nurturing the Inner Child


Joseph G. Moore, PhD, LCSW


Saturday, January 13, 2018 (10:00 am to 3 p.m.)

At the C.G. Jung Center, 28 East 39th St. NYC / 212-557-1502


With his visit to the Taos Pueblo in 1923 C.G. Jung began his exploration into various non-European cultures. Chief Mountain Lake stated that Native Americans thought with their hearts, not with their minds. Through meditation on this statement, Jung realized how coercive and punitive European thinking was and how we needed to re-establish a connection to values emanating from the heart.



Native American family values radiate from the heart and stress “Belonging,” “Mastery,” “Independence,” and “Generosity” as building blocks for child development.  The “Circle of Courage” represents these four psychological needs.  Children and adults who are offered the opportunity to meet these needs in healthy ways grow to find meaning in their lives. When children do not have the favorable conditions to meet these needs, they struggle, finding ineffective, inappropriate and often destructive ways for these needs to be fulfilled. It is at these times that the child feels isolated and alienated from the true self.  These split-off aspects of the Self are our inner children.


The adult who wants consciousness, authenticity and individuation, must reclaim these inner children and integrate them into the Self. This workshop presents tools to nurture and integrate these inner children into the individuated self.



Joseph G. Moore is President of the Analytical Psychology Club of NY and has worked in the field of Child Welfare for 45 years.  He has been in Jungian therapy for over 30 years and has practiced as a Jungian-oriented therapist for the last 25 years.  He is reclaiming and integrating several inner children into his Self.

Myth, Dream, Ritual; The Archetypal Experience in Everyday, Modern Life


Dr. Joseph P. Wagenseller


Saturday, November 4, 2017 10AM-2PM

Mythology has been a part of the fabric of daily life since ancient times. In Greece, for example, the gods and goddesses of myth were worshipped regularly at temples and shrines and through religious festivals and initiation rites. Their core stories became part of the initiation rites of the mystery religions. Through participation in these one experienced transformation and a confident belief that he or she appropriated the deity’s attributes.


From the turn of the last century, the originators and successors of the Psychoanalytic Movement have been intrigued with myth. Sigmund Freud, Otto Rank, Carl Jung, Eric Neumann contributed to the understanding of the universality and profundity of the mythological (archetypal) dimension of human experience. This interest was greatly popularized by the work of Joseph Campbell and others.


Jung suggested that an archetypal dynamic, or mythologem, governs the ego that becomes identified with it. This grew from his discovery of his own version of a hero myth with which he had been identified. (The Siegfried dream.) This phenomenon takes on the potency of a Destiny motif in an individual’s individuation experience. Each of us has a personal myth which will “live us” if we do not discover and relate to it consciously.


This presentation will cover the above material and suggest its relevance to our lives.
