Movie Night with Jungians
Discussion leader: George Sharp
Films are free
Monday, March 18, 7:30: Hugo
Set in 1931 in a very large and intimidating Parisian train station, "Hugo" is the magical evocation of a boy's journey into manhood. Hugo struggles to fulfill the duties of his recently deceased father by keeping the myriad clocks in the station running while avoiding detection by an overly zealous guard, and at the same time solving the mystery of an automaton which seems to embody the real legacy of his father. With Ben Kingsley, Sasha Baron/Cohen and a host of talented others. This is a beautiful movie, very different from Sorsese's normal violent fare. Come and enjoy the movie and the rich discussion which always ensues after a viewing.
The The C. G. Jung Society of the Triangle will hold its Annual Meeting on Friday April 26, just prior to the lecture by Jerry Ruhl, PhD (see below). Elections for the Board of Directors will be held during the meeting. To find out more about the meeting and how to volunteer or nominate others to serve on the Board, see the Annual Meeting and Elections page.
The Female Hero - Workshop with Sarah Jackson
Saturday, March 30, 10 am to 4 pm Church of Reconciliation, Chapel Hill, NC
The workshop will combine didactic and experiential components in which our personal heroes -- both male and female -- will be explored, as well as our perceptions of and relationship to our own heroism and/or anti-heroism. We will take a good look at Jung’s ideas about animus and anima in order to determine what the animus of the female hero is really like. We will consider the basic patterns of the hero’s journey: separation - initiation - return, as well as the slaying of a monster, dragon or demon. We will also discuss the #MeToo movement and will investigate victims as heroes as well as heroes who victimize.
Sarah Jackson has been in private practice in the Berkshires since 1990. She has recently opened new offices in Hillsdale NY and Great Barrington MA. In addition to working as a Jungian and Archetypal psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, she is a visual artist as well as a writer.
Sarah’s exploration of the archetype of the hero, (her graduate thesis was on the female hero) has relevance to our most ordinary and unheroic undertakings, as well as our greatest ambitions and accomplishments.
