In this lecture, Jungian analyst Michael Conforti presents the work of the early masters in the Jungian field. Jungian psychology was the first to examine dreams, the personal and collective unconscious and our rich unconscious life using story, myth and active imagination to illuminate the workings of the unconscious elements of our psyche.

During this lecture, Michael Conforti guides you in exploring:
- A classic Jungian way of being with dreams
- The difference between personal associations and the collective (or archetypal) meaning of dream symbols
- Jung’s method of archetypal amplification,
- How these archetypal meanings can be found in myths, fairy tales and other collective stories.
You can also look forward to several examples being shared throughout his presentation.
The writings of C.G. Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, and the other early Jungians were truly inspired. They brought us into a world where spirit, Self and soul were captured on every page. Where the pages were the canvas for these artists seeking to capture in words and images what they experienced within the inner world.
Once upon a time – or so begins many a story – we looked to the heavens and to the angels for inspiration. And we prayed. The Gods of antiquity have now been replaced with clever conversation, and we stand in saluted attention to the personal. So with the illusion that the Gods are no longer worthy of our attention, we seek inspiration from the commonplace and look for divinity in what we can easily see in the light.
Throughout our history as a species, there has been a deep regard for the dream as a source of knowledge far greater than that of the conscious mind. In dreams we are presented with an understanding about the nature of our life and destiny, which far too often is veiled from our eyes because of the many “concerns” of daily life. And then, too, if we listen closely to the whispers of this voice, we can hear a murmur of a destiny waiting to be embraced.
