September Lecture & Workshop

"Who Am I to You?" 
Friday, September 25, 7:30-9:30
Church of Reconciliation, Chapel Hill, NC

In response to Socrates’ ancient admonition, “Know thyself,” we sometimes find ourselves asking, “Who am I?”  The answer to this question involves one of the greatest dramas of human life: the drama which Jung referred to as -- individuation – the process of recognizing and becoming one’s true self.  And while this great drama unfolds there is a second drama, equally important, vying for our attention. This drama involves our unfolding personal, social and vocational relationships in the world.  As we make our way through life, playing our part, this second drama begs the question, “Who am I to you?”  It is in the dance and the tension between these two great dramas that the true personality makes its way. 

This lecture will explore the interplay between the two dramas, the inner and the relational.  Particular attention will be given to the various social relationships we find ourselves engaged in – family and friends, partners and pilgrims, patients and clients, colleagues and citizens.  We will examine the inescapable role projection plays in forging such relationships, both as a tool for knowing ourselves better and as an obstacle to genuine interaction.  While it is in our most intimate relationships that we best witness the interplay between these two essential dramas, their presence can be observed daily in almost every human contact.  Jung’s work on the nature of the therapeutic transference between therapist and patient will provide a blueprint for understanding the everyday challenges we face when interacting with other people. In the end, each of us must struggle with balancing the questions, “Who am I?” and “Who am I to you?”

WORKSHOP: Who Am I, and Who Am I to You? 
Saturday, September 25, 10am-4pm
Church of Reconciliation, Chapel Hill, NC

In the Saturday workshop, we will leave a short amount of time to clarify any lingering questions about Friday’s lecture.  Then we will set off to further explore the intersection between our own individuation process and the various relationships we encounter in life – familial, romantic, therapeutic, professional, religious, and political, to name a few.  As a group, we will examine common life situations we may all have encountered.  Individually, we will have the opportunity to reflect on our own unique dramas, and if we choose, to share with the group what we have learned.  In an atmosphere of respect and sensitivity we will attempt to address how best to answer the questions, “Who am I?” and “Who am I to you?”, in our efforts to pragmatically navigate these two worlds we inhabit.

"Dreams, Death and the Unconscious -- Before 1900"

Hendrika Vande Kemp, Ph.D.

Chapel Hill Library

Saturday, March 7, 2020, 3:30 pm

Dream researchers of the late nineteenth century faced a number of challenges that were eventually resolved by technological developments such as alarm clocks, pencil erasers, gas and electric lighting, the typewriter, carbon papers, copiers, calculators, and tape recorders. One area of dream content of particular interest were the “dreams of death” which included a variety of dreams we migh regard as para-psychological and prophetic dreams, including one told by Abraham Lincoln. There were also many dreams that included archetypal symbols of death. Participants will be given one of these dreams to consider as if it were one of their own dreams.

Hendrika Vande Kemp was on the faculty of the Graduate School of Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary from 1976 through 2001, and in private clinical practice in Virginia from 2002 through 2015. Her articles and book chapters on dreams include “The Dream in Periodical Literature: 1860-1910,” “Psycho-Spiritual Dreams in the Nineteenth Century. I. Dreams of Death,” “Psycho-Spiritual Dreams in the Nineteenth Century. II. Metaphysics and Immortality,” “Dream Journals, Questionnaires, Interviews, and Observations: Precursors to the Twentieth-Century Content Analysis of Dreams,” and “Lydiard Horton’s Reconstitutive Method of Dream Interpretation and the Trial-and-Error Theory of Dream Images.” She is one of the editors of the 2019 volume Histories of Dreams and Dreaming: An Interdisciplinary Perspective. She has published an encyclopedia article on “The Therapeutic Use of Dreams,” and in newsletters and anthologies has published the “Sestina on Joseph's Celestial Dream,” “Three Story-Book Dreams with Interpretive Commentary,” and “A Comforting Dream.”
