Lecture Description

In this lecture, we will be moving deeper into the unconscious, exploring the archetypal dimensions of the psyche—the anima and animus. Because they are deeply embedded in the unconscious, it can be difficult to get a sense of the anima and animus. 

Van Eenwyk takes an experiential approach to help us understand the individuation process and explores what the anima and animus look and feel like, and how they might appear in our daily lives. Both have an important function in the individuation process.

The goal of individuation is to form a relationship through awareness, discovery, interaction, dialogue, and through what might be called ‘reciprocal integration’, where the unconscious takes into account consciousness, and the other way around. John van Eenwyk introduces a technique called ‘WEAR’. This technique helps us to analyze the relationship to the unconscious while emphasizing the need for the integration of the inner and the outer. When we learn to recognize the images that come as a result of those dynamics, we will have a more successful and happier life. 

John van Eenwyk is a gifted teacher who has thought deeply about the shadow and brings some of his ideas and insights to this lecture.
