The question of which is more important: nature or nurture has been debated in psychology since Freud began theory of child development.  Even before Freud, children were said to be born with original sin and needed baptism even before they could be disciplined.  John Locke advanced a theory that the child was born as an empty container and needed to be nurtured in order that the container (child) could be filled.  Jung, on the other hand, thought that: “The child represents a wholeness which embraces the very depths of nature.” Jung hypothesized that the child had a unique nature at birth, 

 

This workshop will elaborate on Jung’s understanding of the nature of man and how it led to his theory of individuation, his recognition of the collective unconscious, his understanding of expansiveness of each person, and his grasp of the need for each of us to have the goal of being balanced among many different aspects of our human selves.

 

The workshop will be interactive with the goal of having everyone collaborating in learning more about Jung’s understanding of the nature of man.

 

Joseph Moore is the President of the Analytical Psychology Club of NYC.  He has always been interested in the question: Why do children raised under similar circumstance turn out so differently.

FROM THE ARCHETYPES TO THE UNUS MUNDUS

GARY BROWN, LCSW – R, LP

Saturday, April 28, 2018 (10:00 am to 2 p.m.)

At the C.G. Jung Center, 28 East 39th St. NYC

 

A bridge and a key are two of the very important tools presented to us by Jung and Analytical Psychology. Our time even more so than when Jung was working and writing, is one of radical dualism: we operate from a deep split between myself and other, this and that, subject-object. This was quite clear in Jung’s era: he saw the effects of this split, not only in the hear-mind and soul (or lack thereof) of the patients in front of him, but in the culture and society at large.

There he saw it in a fascination with large numbers, grandiosity (narcissism, psychologically) and, politically, the fascism of the right (National Socialism) and left (Communism) and the return of “Savior” in the person of autocratic rulers. Individuals felt small and lost and sought refuge in these leaders and movements, whereas before they had been held and given value by their various religions. They were both a part of and defined by these religions.

Jung sought to “heal the split” in both the individual and culture, by retrieving the lost elements of nondualism. He built this into his theory of psyche as archetypes and the Unus Mundus. Join me to explore this most important discovery and its implication for each of us, especially in this time of fragmentation.

Gary Brown, LCSW – R, LP, is a certified Jungian Analyst, graduate of the Jung Institute of NY.   He is VP of NYAAP, and has served as acting president of that organization as well as president of the Mid-Hudson Jung Society.  A long time student and teacher of Buddhadharma, he is a recognized teacher-Dharma Master.
