Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist
Life is full of transitions - and many of us struggle through them. Whether it is the struggle from one season to the next, from summer to fall to winter; or it is the struggle from youth to middle age, we all have our hiccups along the path of life.Psychologist Carl Jung writes about "the transition from the morning of life to the afternoon of life", and how, often, we are not prepared for the transition. In this episode, B. and I take on the question of "A college for 40 year olds", and what is needed to make this transition in the healthiest and most meaningful of ways.

Defense mechanisms function as unconscious psychological strategies we deploy to navigate reality and sustain a consistent self-image. They act as a shield, guarding against feelings of anxiety, shame, and vulnerability. They are feeling states that prompt us to avoid contact and trick us into thinking they protect us against emotional harm. Ancient philosophers recognized the human tendency to evade uncomfortable truths. In Plato's Allegory of the Cave, he vividly depicts individuals shackled in a cave, seeing only shadows and illusions. Upon being freed and confronted with the light (truth), some retreat to the familiar darkness, unable to bear the illumination of reality. Aristotle wrote about akrasia, which meant a weakness of will that drives one to act against their better judgment, in essence, rejecting reality as unbearable. The stoic philosopher Epictetus noted that people have fantasies of controlling external events and directing them inward to choose how they respond instead. Defenses are affective states that can interfere with our clear, reality-based functioning. They may be complex reactions that muddy our perception of reality, effectively shielding us from feelings or knowledge we find intolerable. They can take the form of denial, regression, rationalization, and even altruism. These are not merely intellectual barriers; they are emotional walls that can keep us from connecting with our own experiences and the people around us. The most common inner conflicts arise from thwarting our instincts. These foundational systems generate intense feelings to guide us. Jung identified multiple instincts: creativity, reflection, activity, sexuality, and hunger. He added the religious instinct to describe how humans naturally generate symbolic systems to link their waking state to the deep unconscious. Freud detailed the multiple symptoms that arise from repressed sexuality, from phobias to hysterical blindness. Jung agreed but understood that thwarting any one of our natural responses would rob us of vitality and distort our adaptation to reality. Cultural expectations, individual trauma, religious demands, and family patterns can convince our waking personality that any one of our instincts is dangerous. When we are overwhelmed by these inner conflicts, we will likely deploy primal defenses like dissociation or acting out. If we can find a more adaptive stance, we will likely intellectualize the conflict or even find it humorous. The goal is not to banish all defenses; we need to manage our exposure to the intensity of life but to discover self-management strategies that allow us to remain effective even under stress.

Un romanzo intimo e nello stesso tempo universale, un romanzo sul padre, su un padre bizzarro, enigmatico, difficile da comprendere e che ha lasciato il segno. In "La casa del mago" (Ponte alle Grazie) Emanuele Trevi, Premio Strega nel 2021 con "Due vite", racconta il suo rapporto col padre, Mario Trevi, famoso psicoanalista junghiano. Un romanzo di riflessioni profonde (come quelle sui testi di Jung), ma anche un romanzo di una certa leggerezza perché lo sguardo di Trevi scrittore è uno sguardo sereno, talvolta anche divertito. Un romanzo che intreccia la vita del figlio a quella del padre e che mette al centro il destino di una casa, quella in cui Mario Trevi svolgeva le sedute di psicoanalisi.Nella seconda parte parliamo di un romanzo che fotografa, anche con ferocia, quanto accaduto alla generazione di giovani che negli anni '80 in India ha studiato in istituti prestigiosi per poi sfondare nel mondo della finanza in Occidente. "Figli della nuova India" di Pankaj Mishra (Guanda - traduz. Maria Federica Oddera) racconta la storia di tre giovani, Arun (voce narrante), Aseem e Vireda che si conoscono nell'Indian Institute of Technology: vengono da famiglie povere con le quali vogliono marcare una distanza e hanno l'ambizione di diventare ricchi. Prenderanno strade diverse e mentre Aseem e Vireda raggiungeranno effettivamente gli obiettivi, con conseguenze però anche impreviste, Arun vivrà con senso di colpa questo processo di affrancamento dalle origini e deciderà di ritirarsi in campagna con la madre. Attraverso la narrazione di Arun il lettore comprende la complessità di un percorso che non è sempre lineare e le contraddizioni che molti di questi giovani che oggi ricoprono anche ruoli importanti hanno dovuto vivere.

In today's very special podcast we will re-air a discussion that was originally recorded and produced by our good friends at the East-West Psychology Department of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) for their own program, the East-West Psychology Podcast (https://east-westpsychologypodcast.com/). The discussion itself is an introduction to a set of two conferences to be held at the California Institute of Integral Studies in celebration of “150 Years of Sri Aurobindo, the Pioneer of Integral Consciousness.” The conferences will take place over the course of a week, starting on September 23, 2023 and concluding on September 30. This discussion is hosted by the East-West Psychology Podcast producers, Stephen Julich and Jonathan Kay. In this conversation, Circle for Original Thinking host and current Jean Gebser Society president, Glenn Aparicio Parry is a guest, along with Debashish Banerji, Chairman of the East-West Psychology Department. We hope this program will provide our listeners with some background on these very important conferences, and the life and work of Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) who was the key figure in the development of a form of spiritual practice he called “integral yoga,” as well as the life and work of the Swiss philosopher and visionary, Jean Gebser, author of the magnum opus, The Everpresent Origin. THE CONFERENCES: The first conference, “Sustainability and Contemplative Civilization: The Integral Vision of Sri Aurobindo,” organized by the East-West Psychology Department (EWP) and the Asian Contemplative and Transcultural Studies concentration (ACTS), will engage with the possibilities, problems and potential of a sustainable civilization based on a contemplative praxis of deep relationality and extended identity as implicit in the vision and teaching of Sri Aurobindo and as explicit in the experimental community of Auroville. The second conference, “The Emergence of Integral Consciousness: Jean Gebser, Sri Aurobindo, Carl Jung, Teilhard De Chardin,” organized by the Jean Gebser Society, will address the coming integral age as foreseen by Gebser, Aurobindo, Jung, and Teilhard de Chardin. Each of these visionary thinkers in their own way foresaw the emergence of a new structure of consciousness beyond the limits of rational thought. Debashish Banerji is a Bengali scholar and Haridas Chaudhuri Professor of Indian Philosophies and Cultures and the Doshi Professor of Asian Art at CIIS. He is also the Program Chair for the East-West Psychology department. Prior to CIIS, he served as Professor of Indian Studies and Dean of Academics at the University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles, CA.Stephen Julich is currently core faculty in the East-West Psychology Department at the California Institute of Integral Studies where he teaches classes Jungian Depth Psychology and Western Mysticism, Magic and Esotericism.Jonathan Kay is a transcultural musician, and is currently a PhD student in the department of East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco under the mentorship of Dr. Debashish Banerji.We wish to again state our very deep gratitude to the people at the East-West Psychology Department and the California Institute of Integral Studies for the critical work that they do every day, and their generosity in sharing the content of this episode with Circle for Original Thinking.

Rafael and Jim interview Andre Decary Andre Decary, “The Seeker of Untruth,,” returns for another stellar discussion, this time about his new writing project. In this episode, Andre makes an important distinction between pain and suffering. He references Jung and Einzelganger's work to illustrate his point: “Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.” There is the Buddhist story of the two arrows that come toward you on the mountain path. When the first arrow hits, you know it hurts. Worse still, in the distance, you see a second arrow coming your way. Will you avoid it or let it hit you? How will you respond? The second arrow represents your reaction to the first arrow. The piercing of the first arrow is inevitable, while the second arrow presents an opportunity. Andre conveyed how by the time the second arrow comes your way you have more experience. And you have a choice. You can respond as you did to the first one, and experience suffering. Or you can opt to respond with hope or joy, or dodge it altogether. Andre references this story to distill the difference between pain and suffering. He discusses how we can be injured by someone's words and actions (the first stinging arrow). However, we can learn to anticipate the second arrow and respond differently (which can give us hope). Nothing can change the fact we got hit by the first arrow that caused us inevitable pain or what Buddhists call “Duhkha.” But we can chose how we respond to the subsequent arrows we encounter on our path.Andre also makes another important distinction in this podcast. He describes the difference between intimacy and closeness. Part of this distinction involves the calibration of vulnerability, self-awareness, differentiation, and empathy. Andre explores how couples can work on both closeness and intimacy. When you have both it is optimal. Tune in to the podcast to hear how — just by discussing these themes — we experienced closeness and professional intimacy.WCMI networking group A networking group for mindfulness-focused clinicians dedicated to learning together & collaborating for more information click here

Athletes and legendary coaches from sport are often cited by leaders to motivate, inspire, and pull together as a team. But how many leaders actually practice and employ the skills these high-achievers leverage to be successful? In today's sports landscape, coaches who have embraced emotional intelligent approaches are scoring points and building dynasties. And corporate leaders have a lot to learn from them. Today, Dr. Peter Sear and I talk about how sport leadership has changed and become more empathic over the last two decades - thus attracting a different kind of leader. We discuss how coaches manage empathic relationships and get the balance of "close but not too close" right. Peter also shares the concept of Empathic Accuracy and tips for how to help your team build empathy among each other. To access the episode transcript, please click on the episode title at www.TheEmpathyEdge.com Key Takeaways:It is important to find and keep the balance between coach and athlete. It is also important to maintain relationships between all players, not just one or two. The same thing goes for employers and employees. Nothing beats getting to know someone on a human level - it is not about the favorites or about me form that someone has filled in. In modern workplaces, it is important that leaders model and show empathy to their teams. That has to start with awareness and shoring up their own empathy skills. "The ‘my way or the highway' approach that coaches often used to apply just doesn't work with athletes of this generation. They've got different expectations and different powers." — Dr. Peter Sear, Founder, Empathic Minds About Dr. Peter Sear, Founder Empathic MindsI started off as a Futures Floor Trader, trading sugar futures in London, for five years. I traveled before going to University aged 23, to study psychology. That led to my first Masters degree, during which I opened a property company with my parents. I continued to study, getting another Masters, in Jung, and learning some neuroscience. I've worked in many roles, including as a commissioned artist. My PhD was at Loughborough (the best University in the world for sport related research!). Since then, I've written for Psychology Today, The World Financial Review among others. I now help coaches, leaders, organizations, consultancies, and individuals learn about the powers of empathy and how to develop them.

Have you ever wondered just what makes the creative act special? Is it a confluence of events and timing, or is it a special state, a trance state, that is demarcated from ordinary time?

Dr. Tobi Zausner is a research psychologist, a clinician in private practice, and an award-winning visual artist with works in major museums and in private collections around the world.

There is a hegemony of waking consciousness in the western mindset that has eclipsed the natural inner landscape of revery and imagination that we still bump up against with indigenous cultures, and that the arts. The Creative Trance & the Trickster work outside the bounds of “normal time and space” and bring us all back to our roots in the as creatures rooted in the earth and capable of imaginal life.https://www.tobizausner.com/index.htmlThe Creative Trancehttps://stanleykrippner.weebly.comTrance & the TricksterThe Psychology Talk Podcast is a unique conversation about psychology around the globe.

Join Peter as he welcomes Pete Isaia to the podcast. Pete Isaia is a life coach and trauma therapist who specialises in shadow integration work. The “Shadow” concept was developed by one of the giants of psychology Carl Jung. Jung described the unconscious part of our character or personality that does not align with the ideal version of what we're aiming for, this being the version of us Jung called the ego ideal. It's a fascinating topic and we hope you enjoy.

The archetype of Initiation is primordial, and its force guides our transformative transitions. For Jung, this change reshapes spiritual, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, and social dynamics. Rooted in his anthropological studies, Jung emphasized the vital role of formal ceremonies in fostering separation from parental influences and facilitating integration into adult communities. These ceremonies marked a clear transition from childhood and established an essential connection with the adult community, promoting the collaborative culture by containing unconscious forces. Derived from the Latin "initium," Initiation carries the power of new beginnings, urging us towards greater consciousness and understanding. This journey transcends personal experience, reverberating universally through significant life milestones that act as gateways to realms of human experience, driven by archetypal activations inherent to all. Initiation contains three universal elements: separation, liminal space, and reintegration. This process is approached through a structured and ritualistic path in modern Mystery Schools. It begins with transitioning from our outer lives, then identifying what is alien to our true nature, followed by a dedication to a greater vision. Once ushered into a sacred space, we are helped to recognize the price of being unconscious. When our character flaws are personified and confronted, a Hierophantic figure reveals sacred objects, symbols, and teaching. These, along with various practices, seek to activate the archetype of transformation. Embraced into a community dedicated to mutual growth, Initiates re-enter their daily lives, tasked to integrate a more expansive attitude of themselves and life. The loss of most formal initiations in modern culture leaves these archetypal forces with no aesthetic process to affect the individual. Expressed unconsciously, they emerge as fraternity hazing or surviving a violent gauntlet to gain gang membership. Various mythopoetic movements have attempted to restore initiations for sons and daughters, bar mitzvahs carry ancient themes into contemporary life, and Freemasons strive to maintain ceremonies that make good men better. The archetype of Initiation is still alive and potent, perhaps struggling to find modern idioms and values to carry its transformative power forward.

Ilias Schori kam mit 14 auf die schiefe Bahn und landete mit 23 Jahren im Gefängnis. Heute klärt er Jugendliche darüber auf, welch gravierende Folgen Jugendkriminalität und damit verbundene Straftaten für Opfer wie auch Täter haben können. Ilias Schoris Strafregisterauszug ist lang: Hausfriedensbruch, Drohung, Verstoss gegen das Betäubungsmittelgesetz, Sachbeschädigung, Raub, banden- und gewerbsmässiger Diebstahl. Noch länger ist die Liste der Institutionen und Pflegefamilien, in denen der heute 30-jährige Schori seine Jugend verbrachte. «Reporter» taucht ein in Ilias Schoris Alltag in der Jugendkriminalität, aus dem er für den Verein «Gefangene helfen Jugendlichen» in Schulen und Heimen erzählt. Dabei holt Schori seine Vergangenheit ein: Die Trauer über seine verlorene Kindheit, Schuld- und Schamgefühle seinen Opfern gegenüber übermannen ihn.

We share personal stories - from Steve's experience with Bob and Dennis to Pat's metaphorical lesson from his last therapist. The conversation emphasizes the importance of self-reflection and learning to ask the right questions. We also explore the benefits of brain-based interventions and how they have the potential to revolutionize therapy.In the final part of our conversation, we delve into the essence of learning, healing, and community in therapy. We discuss the evolution of EMDR over the years, the effectiveness of virtual EMDR, and the importance of finding mentors and peers who understand the unique experience of doing therapy. We wrap up our conversation by expressing our gratitude to the mental men for sharing their wisdom and invite you to join us for the next season of the podcast.

Who is the most human character in Xenosaga, and is that individual even human? To figure that out, we're chatting up our Vector co-workers, diagnosing Allen's patheticness, discussing Jung's origin of all shit, refusing to ask out our boss, confessing sins while we beat up our subordinates, reminisce enduring thoughts, ding-crossing with a ghost girl, slacking off because of bimbos, referencing multiple “incidents,” and committing to fix the Realians outside of union rules.

Often stories come to us in fragments: as a vivid image or a perfect sentence, but how do we turn those fragments into stories? Fiction writer, Jung Yun, shows how to create linear stories from nonlinear fragments and what happens when patience runs thin in this Inspiration Takeover, a series of mini-episodes with different writers who offer us a little dose of inspiration. Jung Yun was born in Seoul, South Korea, and grew up in Fargo, North Dakota. She studied at Vassar College, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she received her M.F.A. in Creative Writing. Her work has appeared in Tin House, the Massachusetts Review, the Indiana Review, the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Review of Books, among others. She is the recipient of individual artist's grants in fiction from the Maryland State Arts Council, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation. She has also received residential fellowships from MacDowell, the Ucross Foundation, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the National Humanities Center. Currently, Jung lives in Baltimore with her husband and is an associate professor of English at the George Washington University. She serves on the board of directors of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation.
Korea! Hurrah! We're excited to be here for the first time. First, we explore the early days of the Joseon Dynasty, including that one tumblr meme with the guy falling off his horse and the witchcraft of Deposed Crown Princess Kim (Gim), wife of Munjong of Joseon. Then we take a quick 500ish-year leap forward to catch the end of the Joseon Dynasty and talk about the patron saint of Korea, Andrew Kim Taegon, and An Jung-geun, a Korean Catholic national hero.

The opinions expressed by guests are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of or endorsement by the Information Professionals Association. During this episode, Wing Commander Shane Rutherford discusses his Joint Forces Staff College, Joint Advanced Warfighting School (JAWS) thesis entitled: Back to the Future: Political Paralysis Cost Britain America, What Will it Cost the United States? His thesis received the Paul Cerjan distinguished writing award from the National Defense University. The year is 1763 and despite presiding over a vast commercial and political empire, Britain's. parliament has failed to embrace the buds of what will eventually become understood as collective responsibility. Instead, the British government is characterized by paralysis and polarization. Worse, the government has been exposed by separate internal factions that are infatuated with economic speculation, personal power, wealth, status, and estate. Consequently, the common ground could only be found in a common enemy, leading to strategic mistakes, such as the mistreatment of allies and partners that would prove catastrophic at Yorktown some two decades later. The Colonies are mistaken as a periphery issue, debated infrequently in the Houses of Parliament, and in 1765, it elects to pass a taxation law without deliberation, known as the Stamp Duty Act, that lights the tinderbox of rebellion in America. Concurrently struggling with the application of a constitutional monarchy, a deteriorating political situation set the stage for the abuse of executive power. The conditions were set for catastrophic strategic failure.

Join me for a journey back to a time when alchemy was revered by Kings & Queens and practiced in the courts of nobles. A time when Prague was the alchemical capital of the world–drawing occultists to it from all of Europe, and ruled by a King who supported esoteric spiritual practices. Along the way we will find direct parallels between Jung's Red Book and the work of the alchemists, leading us to Jung's most misunderstood psychotherapeutic method: active imagination. We will also explore these questions: What can a two hundred year old Grimm's fairy tale tell us about alchemy? What value did Dr. Carl Jung see in fairy tales? Why is a scholarly mind one of alchemy's virtues? Is Hermes-Mercurius the God of Alchemy? ∞∞∞∞∞ View my Atalanta Fugiens gallery (containing all 50 artworks) here: https://mjdorian.com/alchemy/ Join the Creative Codex mailing list: https://mjdorian.com/mail/ ∞∞∞∞∞ Support Creative Codex on my Patreon and get access to exclusive episodes, including the RED BOOK READING series and all the Episode Exclusives: https://www.patreon.com/mjdorian Buy me a coffee or add to my fancy books fund on Venmo: https://venmo.com/code?user_id=3235189073379328069&created=1681912456.228596&printed=1 ∞∞∞∞∞ View a transcript of this episode here: https://mjdorian.com/transcripts/ Prague's historic alchemical laboratory, Speculum Alchimiae: http://www.alchemiae.cz/en ∞∞∞∞∞ Cover art: detail of a Ripley Scroll (1600's) Christies auction house video about a Ripley Scroll: https://www.christies.com/features/The-fantastic-world-of-the-Ripley-Scroll-8760-3.aspx ----------- Research Sources: • The Red Book by Carl Jung • Psychology and Alchemy by Carl Jung • Alchemical Studies by Carl Jung • Mysterium Coniunctionis by Carl Jung • Alchemical Active Imagination by Marie Louise von Franz • Alchemical Imagination by Jeffrey Raff • Atalanta Fugies by Michael Maier • Spagyrics by Jean Dubuis ———— Audio Editor: Donald Martin All Music by MJDorian Written & Produced by MJDorian ———— Thank you to my Dream Maker tier!

As Jung's anthropological studies expanded and his international travel exposed him to new cultures and ideas, he was taken by the concept of ‘loss of soul.' A collapse of energy, a strange sudden alteration of personality, or episodes of blinding rage could signify a loss of soul from a shamanic perspective. The soul carries the animating and regulating forces as well as memory. In most traditions, it was expected to fly away upon death, much like the Egyptian Ba, depicted as a bird with a human head. Because the soul had an independent life, it might flee suddenly, leaving a listless body behind. The shaman's task was to retrieve and escort the wandering soul into the body again. In Michael Harner's book The Way of the Shaman, he cataloged various ancient practices and distilled a small set of universal techniques. Soul retrieval involves tying a red string on the patient's wrist and, with the help of one's spiritual power animal, traveling to the inner worlds, identifying the lost soul by the red string also on its wrist, bringing it back to the waking world and blow it into the patient's body. Loss of soul in this contemporary system is often associated with trauma, and the imagery is congruent with modern conceptualizations of dissociation. Jung linked shamanic descriptions with the work of psychiatrist Janet and called “abaissement du niveau mental.” Jung described this as “a slackening of the tensity of consciousness, which might be compared to a low barometric reading, presaging bad weather. The tonus has given way, and this is felt subjectively as listlessness, moroseness, and depression. One no longer has any wish or courage to face the tasks of the day. One feels like lead because no part of one's body seems willing to move, and this is due to the fact that one no longer has any disposable energy.” In modern psychiatry, several clinical descriptions might be assigned to such despair and collapse, but those may not capture the psychospiritual depth of ‘loss of soul.' For Jung, the soul carries creativity and grants meaning; it links us to the divine and represents all we could be if wholeness were possible. Whatever the cause, to be abandoned by one's soul is devastating, and to be reunited, the greatest gift.

Este es el episodio final de nuestra serie de podcasts sobre la vida y obra de Carl Jung. Este ha sido un proyecto conjunto entre el Instituto Venezolano de Psicología Analítica (representado por María Leonor de Planchart y Beatrice Rojas) y el Quest (representado por Alan Mulhern). Terminamos, como deberíamos. con las propias visiones y pensamientos de Jung al final de su vida, tal como se cuentan en los capítulos finales de Recuerdos, Sueños, Pensamientos. Estos incluyen: su experiencia cercana a la muerte; su posterior convicción de que la vida en esta tierra era como una caja tridimensional especialmente construida a la que llamamos "realidad"; sus pensamientos sobre la existencia después de la muerte; su conciencia de que esta vida era una proyección de una realidad más profunda; su convicción de que la civilización occidental necesitaba recuperar un ancla mitológica sin la cual estábamos perdidos; sus extraordinarias reinterpretaciones de la sabiduría, las religiones y las mitologías antiguas para reanimar el alma de la humanidad; y su creencia de que un amor profundo es la base del universo. Jung escribió: “Hasta donde podemos discernir, el único propósito de la existencia humana es encender una luz en la oscuridad del mero ser”. Pocas veces ha habido tanta luz en la oscuridad como la de Carl Jung.
Max Holloway got the win as expected over Chan Sung Jung on Saturday, but it was still a fairly impressive weekend for the Korean Zombie. Jung was able to find Holloway's chin more than expected prior to his own KO loss, he got a signature Zombie moment surviving a choke in the second round and after the fight pulled off perhaps the classiest and most eloquent MMA retirement we've ever seen. Point being: Max and the Zombie are both sweet dudes. Where they both go from here, only time will tell. Plus, as the UFC rolls into Paris this weekend, will Sergey Spivak look to check that wrestling against Ciryl Gane? This episode is brought to you in part by NordVPN.

Today we speak with Dr. James Hollis, a speaker, professor, Jungian analyst, and bestselling author of 19 books examining life and how to cherish every moment. His world-renowned books, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, The Eden Project, What Matters Most, and Living an Examined Life, have been translated into over twenty languages. We discuss his latest book, A Life of Meaning, which examines the qualities that bring meaning to our human journey. Our culture tells us to seek wealth, power, prestige, or even enrollment in someone else's idea of a worthy cause—yet where do we turn when these paths fail to fulfill our need for purpose? “When the old stories and beliefs that once defined us have played out and grown exhausted,” teaches Dr. James Hollis, “our task is to access our inner compass, the promptings of the psyche that help us find our way through the complex thickets of choice.” Hollis offers an examination of myth, literature, historical figures, and the wisdom of depth psychology that provides penetrating insight into the search for purpose. In A Life of Meaning, Hollis offers no easy answers or feel-good certainties—instead, he shares his most valuable questions and reflections to help you find the courage, persistence, and inspiration to navigate your own odyssey. Time Stamps:Defining the concept of big self. 6:38It is important to define how the word self is used in any given paragraph or conversation.All of us are either serving or running from the instructions of our culture in the first half, with some exceptions, but mostly in the second half of life, about surrendering to something larger than our instructions or our complexes or personal history.The middle passage, the adolescent passage and the final passage, mortality.The middle passage trough of despair. 13:40What to do when your boss is a jerk? 17:28The importance of reflecting on the nature of his work and asking himself what is his task now. Finding your own personal guidance system. 23:25The process of discernment.One of the dilemmas is, if I choose this path, it could risk my relationship.Fear and lethargy are the enemies of life. Fear is the seduction of that part of me that wants an easy path. Jung says the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of the parent.Talk is cheap, change is difficult, and it always costs something.The collective unconscious and the wounded healer. 29:53Empathic caregivers bear the weight of a collective system of unreality, not tuning into human needs, and not tuning in to human needs.What is the wounded healer complex? 34:03Some people need to leave the profession to save their lives. Others need to take more breaks and recognize the symptoms of burnout.The wounded healer complex is a neutral word like an airport complex or...

The behaviorism of B.F. Skinner took the psychology world by storm. His 1971 book "Beyond Freedom and Dignity" was hailed as the most important psychological publication of the 20th century. And this was from someone who denied mind and free will. It was an attempt to dignify psychology as a hard science, based on experiments and what can be observed, rather than what people think or feel, a direct contradiction to the root meaning of word psychology - "a study of mind." He claimed that reason, values, concepts, judgment, and purpose simply do not exist. To him, all actions are based on conditioning. Hegel laid the groundwork for the unconscious, calling it soul, and saying it is from what consciousness itself comes. Famed psychologists Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung built on this with their brilliant conceptions - the reality of the unconscious mind on Freud's part and the collective unconscious from Jung. This episode discusses all this as well as Novak's personal interactions with Skinnerism in the university setting of the early 1970s. Support the show

Sharon Blackie calls us to the ancient archetype of the Hag as a figure of unapologetic emergence from cultural pressures that lock us into outworn roles and limiting beliefs. Drawing upon her transformative experiences in menopause Blackie grounds the mythic figure of the old woman who fashioned the world in her fierce determination to dissolve and reconfigure her professional and personal life. Identifying and rejecting cultural pressures to look and act a certain way as she ages, she claims the second half of her life for a post-heroic journey of intense creativity and unapologetic self-expression. Ancient Celtic fairytales, myths, and folk stories carry the spirit of the Cailleach, the divine old woman who shapes the landscape and scourges it clean through winter storms. This Queen of Winter is sharp and wild. Those who discover the Cailleach within carry her ruthless truths as unavoidable facts that demand acknowledgment. Her stark reality strips away one's inner illusions and avoidance of death, leaving her sharp eye facing outward. Tending the web of life becomes the great task, and acting to restore balance to the community, the central role. The path to the Hag is hidden in stories. Blackie reminds us that reviving ancient themes and images expands our imagination and helps us recover the dark woods we once knew well. Wise old ones revive awe and connection. Trees and plants, rivers and crows have secrets to teach us that require a depth of listening undisturbed by collective gibbering. Elderhood can be a time to shed the roles assigned to us. Menopause can be welcomed as a rite of passage with the Hag silently waiting for us to see her. If we have learned how to recognize her, renewal and reclaiming is possible. The stories of those who have gone before us carry a strange beauty that can stir a memory in our soul and set us on the path. REFERENCES: Sharon Blackie Order her book: Hagitude.
