Member Appreciation Lecture

Sex: The Flesh and Blood of It

We tend to talk about sex symbolically and spiritually in the Jungian community. These aspects are, of course, invaluable components and worthy of discussion. But what do we lose when we skirt around the nitty-gritty, the flesh and blood of sex?

Jung repeatedly emphasized the role that sexuality plays in the individuation process, claiming that a disturbed sexuality was at the core of many complexes that hindered a person’s ability to individuate or develop. He also recognized the difficulty of addressing sexual phenomena because it often brings with it forbidding moral dictates and challenging shadow material. However, avoiding issues of sexuality means potentially missing the opportunity to invite and deepen the vital energy it can bring.

In Friday night’s lecture, we will openly discuss the instinctual aspects of sex to examine individual and collective attitudes toward it, invite a deeper reflection of personal biases and experiences with sex, and increase understanding of the potential role sexual phenomena may play in individuation.

During Saturday’s workshop, we will use the myth of Eros and Psyche to continue the focus on the expression and experience of sex: its instinctual, animal nature; its desire for life as well as its relation to death; its aggressive play of dominance and submission; its confrontation with collective ideals or values; and its insistence on a journey to the underworld and its conception and birth of pleasure. Examples, film clips, participant experiences, and group activities will help flesh out the vital significance sex has in our lives.

Toni Wolff and C.G. Jung:
A Collaboration

by Nan Savage Healy

This is the first comprehensive account of the personal and professional collaboration between Toni Wolff and C. G. Jung. As the founder of analytical psychology, Jung has been examined extensively, but little is known about Toni Wolff, the woman he called his "other wife." Brilliant, self-taught, and incisively intuitive, Wolff intellectually complemented Jung and brought the feminine perspective to his ideas. Indeed, Toni Wolff's influence on Jung is far greater than previously recognized, as they quickly discovered that they could accomplish more together than either of them could alone. Their profound, yet poignant relationship during the early twentieth century gave rise to a groundbreaking vision of the human psyche.

While Toni Wolff and C.G. Jung: A Collaboration is not available for purchase online, it is available in The Jung Center's bookstore itself. Contact Elissa Davis (information below) to purchase or reserve your copy today!

For more information, please visit our website or contact Elissa Davis, Director of Retail Sales and Customer Service, at 713.524.8253 ext. 18 or bookstore@junghouston.org.
