Special opportunity

All the way from Alabama!  We are so pleased that our guest presenter offered to make our chapter meeting part of his business trip to NC.  This ENTP is eager to share his unique approach, expertise, and his love of type.

Program:

The Hero’s Journey is the template upon which all of the world’s great stories, movies, and myths are based. Participants will learn how to utilize the elements of the Hero’s Journey and an overlay template, The Client’s Journey which is a far more therapeutic lens, to motivate, inspire, and facilitate change for their clients and themselves. Using these stories and the lens of Jungian personality type as a framework, the session will conclude with an opportunity for participants to apply the Hero’s Journey metaphor to their own lives and professional practice.  This program is for therapists, life coaches, school counselors, HR professionals and anyone interested in facilitating growth, positive change, and understanding the universal challenges we ALL encounter in our Journeys. This workshop, with real-life stories, lively visuals from famous movies, and group exercises, makes theory come alive!

Goals for this program:

  • Recognize the stages of the Hero’s Journey and relate them to their own lives
  • Understand and utilize the “mirrored” stages of the “Client’s Journey” which is a similar, but a more therapeutic overlay.
  • Teach the Hero’s Journey to clients quickly and effectively
  • Utilize interventions, that I will supply and teach to move clients from the metaphorical concept to real life application
  • Apply the Hero’s Journey to facilitate their own and their clients’ growth
  • Appreciate the relationship between the Hero’s Journey, Individuation and Personality Type Development

NEW MEETING LOCATION  –  Directions to American Underground meeting room

Harry Houdini, David Copperfield—magicians who amaze us by escaping from underwater tombs and making buildings disappear—but what is magic?

In this third presentation on “The Red Book” we will explore the magic of Carl Jung. Jung meets his various personalities in Liber Secundus (the second part of the Red Book), who help him to understand who he is and what he must confront in his quest to be an authentic human being. In chapter twenty-one, “The Magician,” Jung searches for a magician who will show him the way. He knows himself but how is he to move forward with this knowledge? What is the magic that will steer the wagon of his life?

When Carl Jung started writing The Red Book in 1913, he was deeply depressed. His relationship with Freud had ended acrimoniously, he questioned the value of his work, and he thought he was having a psychological breakdown. The book is an account of his self-psychoanalysis. In this workshop, we will explore the second part of The Red Book, Liber Secundus, in which Jung encounters and carries on a conversation with the various parts of himself. We will meet the Red Man, the Lowly, the Castle, the Anchorite, and others as we come to a deeper understanding of how the various and opposite parts of his personality helped Jung to become a major force in the psychoanalytic movement.
