Jung on Non-ordinary States and the Subtle Body

Where: On Zoom – It’s easy to download and use.

When Jung was a child, he was already experiencing non-ordinary states and was deeply engaged in the archetypal world. It was his destiny to follow this phenomenon, study it, and bring it into the world of psychology. He borrowed the Sufi term subtle body to talk about non-ordinary states. This lecture will explore Jung’s experiences and ideas about this phenomenon. The Black Books were his original journals and from there, he transcribed his stories into the Red Book and painted many powerful symbolic paintings. Sonu Shamdasani, who published them both said that this journey was the Rosetta Stone that set the stage for his research and theories for the rest of his life.

Body as Shadow: Re-membering the Body
Erica Lorentz, M.Ed, LPC

Friday, March 4, 2022 at 7:00 PM EST
An online Zoom event

Details:
This lecture will share how and why our embodied experience was sent into exile and what Jung had to say about this. We cannot have a soulful life without connection to our body and to the feminine- they are inextricably linked. There is no separation between body/mind/soul/spirit. This was part of Jung’s quest and legacy to us. We will discuss how this has affected our modern culture and the deepest way we can retrieve our vitality and soul.

The Heroine’s Journey in Men & Women

What is the heroine’s journey? How is it different from the well-known masculine hero’s journey? What does the feminine offer in insight and experience that is so valuable to our lives?

No matter whether we identify as male, female, or any other gender, there is feminine energy and wisdom in all of us. This ancient wisdom can initiate us into a way of being in the world helping us claim our deepest power and wisdom. Come and enjoy the highly-rated teacher Erica Lorentz’s The Heroine’s Journey in Men & Women on the heroine’s journey.

The Power of the Feminine Erotic Soul

Online Course with Jungian analyst Erica Lorentz

The Feminine Erotic Soul is present in all of us – it opens a path to creativity, desire, connection, intimacy, and the sacred while offering an embodiment of the sensual Self. When this sensual soul is missing – regardless of our age, gender identity or sexual orientation – our experience of life feels flat, ungrounded, disconnected, and driven. This course helps you to recover, re-connect with and embrace your feminine erotic soul in your personal life. It explores how the erotic soul of the Feminine can offer us balance and healing for our personal lives, for humanity and for the world.

In a new 4-class course, Jungian analyst Erica Lorentz takes us on an intimate journey to recover, re-connect with and embrace The Power of the Feminine Erotic Soul. She will also share how this sensual aspect in all of us can offer balance and healing for our personal lives, for humanity and for the world.

The Heroine’s Journey – Beyond Patriarchy

Presented by The Jung Association of Western Massacusetts

Friday, January 8, 2021

7:00 – 9:00 pm EST (6:30 pm for settling and tech questions)

Joseph Campbell brought the hero’s journey into mainstream culture. But what about the heroine’s journey in all of us? What about the whole history of nonviolent resistance all over the world that fought for positive transformation against a violent patriarchy? In this program, we will take a look at the qualities of the heroine’s journey of initiation, psychological, and spiritual growth through fairytale, myth, history, story, and film. It’s a growing movement and the only way to create real change.
