Lecture 6 Psych and Religion *Psych and Religion outlines are not included in these notes due to copyright. These  are my personal notes from lecture—if you need the outline they are provided on  ecommons. Lecture 6 10/11/16 Carl Jung  Jung, the key pioneer of the unconscious, was once a close friend with Freud  and their friendship ended over their different views on science  Jung believed that life is a story of the self­realization of the unconscious o “Everything in the unconscious seeks outwards manifestation and I cannot employ the language of science–who we are by inward vision can only be  expressed by way of myth  Myth is individual and science cannot do justice to the individual  and that expresses life more than science  Psyche­ology: the study of the spirt and the soul Jung is a soul psychologist before he is a scientific psychologist There are two distinct ways of speaking truth and knowledge:  Logos­ logical, rational, common sense, helps us function well in life—needs to  be seen and measured o Practitioners believe this is the only knowledge and truth—science  Mythos—not objective, felt in the blood, things you just know, things you can just  feel—the truths of meaning—goes back to origins of life, springs from the  unconscious, in the depth of the human mind Example: The Moon:  Logos: what is true about the moon—2160 miles in diameter, surface has 80,000 craters, the ocean tide is related to the moon rising, lunar eclipses, lunar  temperatures…etc.…   Mythos: even though logos is true there is more to the moon than that o To try to livin in a world dominated by only one view of reality, consisting  only of logos, is like embracing your lover as a skeleton o Logos is bloodless, only bone  There is more truth in the universe that is more subjective, private,  personal to the individual and that may be more meaningful than  logos o Una luna de miel (a moon of honey) o The moon has always exerted a dark mysterious feminine influence on our lives—the white goddess; involving sacred rituals, inspiration, influence,  legend; if has created a truth in human ways throughout history Lecture 6 Psych and Religion o This knowledge and truth has to do with the sacred, it expresses the spirit  of the person We are incredibly complex and multi­layered—our ordinary waking consciousness is  only one form of consciousness—an island in a vast sea of unconsciousness The horizontal and the vertical dimension of existence  Horizontal: develops in us because we always have day to day practicalities of  life  Vertical: realm of depth and meaning in our lives—normal horizontal time ceases to exist o Time stops  Magic, the spiritual o Can also be the realm of darkness  Insanity  Shadow experiences   Mystical Union -Height of spiritual experience joined with the divine NDE (near death experiences Spiritual Experiences Peak Experiences Creative flow Logos Zoom Zoom Zoom Birth, learning, mating Career, taxes, illness, death Zoom Zoom Zoom Dreams Nightmares Shadow Experiences Psychosis Mythos Lecture 6 Psych and Religion Jung doesn’t want to limit human experience to logos  Much is unconscious  Explore it o Strange encounter with psychotic patient at mental institution: “If you half  shut your eyes you can see the suns fallace and if you move your head  around fallace moves too  Real connection to the wind o This uttering is actually an ancient mythic Greek cult as an explanation of  the origin of wind  Jung found this out through research, in a specific book, there was  no way that the patient had contact with this book  Jung’s theory: psychotic patients speak from unconscious  speaking from collective form of knowledge—collective  unconscious o Noticed and believed that the psychotic/schizophrenic people/patients udder things that we all have inside of us The Sources of Theory ­non ordinary states of conscious gained usually on vertical plane of existence  Dreams o Royal road to the unconscious, dreams con directly from unconscious  Dreams are our friends, we shouldn’t be afraid of them, they  compensate for our waking life and bring use balance  Keep a dream journal, if you study it for a lifetime it should  form a perfectly shaped mandala  Own and patients’ creative output o Creative flow  Let it come from the unconscious root of creativity  o If we can drop into the darkness that is the way to transformation, the way  through  Take seriously the utterances of his psychotic patients  o Deep research into old texts and compare to see overlap  Jung’s visions o Future, past, other dimensions   Some argue that Jung was experiencing his own version of  psychosis and that is why he had visions, Jung viewed that as  falling on the lower end of the vertical and he had to be careful to  be able to pull himself out Lecture 6 Psych and Religion We are highly complex The whole development life process is a spiritual journey that Jung calls individuation —involves in counter with and intergration of recognizable developmental markers  which he called the personality archetypes  All human beings go through this archetype—deep pattern, template, form, dry  riverbed which we fill up with our own content—apart of our unconscious o Ego and persona have to merge early on in life  Help us step into the world, essential in navigating the horizontal  plane If you look into the eyes of a baby—depth, clarity, absence of fear—looking into the soul of the individual—there is something ancient there. No one can stay in that state  forever, absolutely perfect but utterly unconscious; we must individuate—the ability to  control and influence their world This grows correspondingly with the baby’s sense of own “I”­ness, sense of ego  Ego is the early horizontal part of personality, the sense of consistency and  autonomy, choose our direction –center of our consciousness, essential  functions of memory, plan, focus, attend, growing functions of rationality, thought, logos, speech, growth (physical functions) o In this development we lose or separate from our unconscious  Ego is threatened by the unconscious  Persona is the archetype of consciousness on the horizontal plane. It is how we  move along the horizontal line of life—our social selves—our social clothes, what we wear to protect ourselves from being too vulnerable; our values—how you  see yourself o Hats that you put on to navigate through life, you don’t want to be stuck in  a persona or over­identify. o Should be a social mask that can be put on and removed   Having no persona is just as bad as not being able to remove  yourself from a persona o This is the conformity archetype that can be dangerous and deadly if we  identify with it too much or too little Growing away from the unconscious  A split occurs if we are not in balance—the parts of ourselves we don’t want  around/who we don’t want to be, we shove behind us and it becomes a part of  our shadow o Psychic energy invested in not becoming those things Lecture 6 Psych and Religion  The more over identified a person is with their own persona the more chance  there is of being overtaken by their shadow o The shadow contains childhood wounds and traumas, our addiction,  humiliation and shame, guilty and rage, inferiorities and strivings for  power, self­hatred and debilitating insecurities  All of our bad stuff o Periods of exploring the shadow or encountering it is healthy but  identifying with it is dangerous and can lead to self­harm or wanting to  harm others  Embracing our shadow and confronting it is what makes us more  human  There is immense energy in our shadow  It is our bat cave (first lecture) o Every human being must cast a shadow to become more whole, we need  one because there is potential in it, it is full of potential that can lead to  creativity. The scariest people are the ones try not to have a shadow so  they project their shadow on to others and want to wipe those people out o We have to go through the shadow in order to reach our final  transformation, the path to psychic balance  When we are both light and dark, when we can dance with the  shadow  It is the way home, our journey to the east Lecture 7 Psych and Religion *Psych and Religion outlines are not included in these notes due to copyright. These  are my personal notes from lecture—if you need the outline they are provided on  ecommons. Lecture 7 10/13/16 The Keirsey Temperament Scale   Temperament is who you are, what you’ll be good at, predictor of relationship  success or potential conflict  The Keirsey Temperament Scale goes along with Jung’s theory of types o I­Introvert—energy from going inside self, in solitude, territorial, really in­ touch with the inner world o E­Extrovert—social animal, energy is gained from other people (need to  make room for introverts in their lives—quiet knowledge)  Both have different strengths and can learn from eachother  We all have to take the world in—perceiving functions o S­Senses—good to follow in emergency, they are realists, take hard­ objective looks on life, like details, facts  They like what is possible/logical in the immediate present, they  tend to like sticking to recipes—read word for word, they are  terrestrials with their feet on the ground o N­Intuition—not great to follow in emergencies (N’s need S’s), they tend to read between the lines, extraterrestrial, float around, can’t stick to a  recipe, they “have a vision,” look to the future  Knowing things without being about to explain how we know it, tend to take in the world in by unconscious  Mysterious o They complement each­other but can also lead to conflict in relationships  if the two people don’t recognize the differences as strengths  Judgements—decision making o T­Thinking—objective, rational, impersonal basis for making choices, they  are in the pursuit of truth, like rules, not interested in feelings—not in  touch, logical conclusions  Spock o F­Feeling—highest values are relationships, (need T’s with them in order  to make important life decisions, buying houses or cars)—will do things on the basis of it feeling right, make decisions based on feelings  Crybabies, Sponge­bob o In relationships can lead to potential problems but there is a strong initial  attraction  Obligations Lecture 7 Psych and Religion o P­Perceiving—procrastinators, really good at playing, like to have fun,  they don’t like structure or deadlines, they like to keep their options open o J­Judging—don’t like to have their options open, they are planners, they  like schedules, work well in structure, they get things done o In relationships this can lead to problems due to J’s being impatient or  anxious when dealing with P’s Journey to the East  Herman Hesse the author of Journey to the East was in therapy with Carl Jung  Looking at this book through a Jung­ian lens would make the most sense o Individuation, coming to selfhood o Allegory and metaphor about Herman Hesse’s own life (the main  characters name is HH)  About someone lost in the shadow, a journey, remembrance,  recalling and yearning for another magical time that is now lost,  and then recovering that magic o Leo, the servant, (if the story is an allegory) is some part of Hesse’s  personality   He can communicate to animals, he has magic Healthy development of a person is towards a balanced, unified, self­aware, and  creative life  Individuation o Coming to self­hood, self­realization o Final personality archetype: the self  Completing the circle, coming back to the deepest, oldest, ultimate  archetype  Psychological order and individuation o Consciousness and unconsciousness are no longer in opposition to one  another—they complement each other and create integration—the self  Ego moves us away from self/unconscious onto the horizontal into logos leads us to persona our social functions—threatened by the vertical, further from  unconscious—parts of the persona we don’t like we shove into the shadow o For individuation you must confront shadow Accept who you are and who you aren’t and find out and develop balance Hope to come back to self again (first and final) and it contains religious function The unconscious knows there is more Lecture 7 Psych and Religion The Self ­birth ­end of journey       Persona ­social function Ego ­narcissistic needs function on horizontal Interview with Carl Jung: I: Do you believe in God? Jung: I do not believe, I know   It’s more than a system of beliefs  The wholly other  You can have your own powerful religious experience—not a question of faith or  belief anymore, you knowthe final version of self o Could take a lifetime or an instance   To know that there is more than just religious function—intuition  Working, perceiving on the horizontal plane—adapt intuition  to use it, a more primitive source of our hunches,  premonition, inspiration, where magical creative work comes from—the third eye/the intuitive eye (can perceive more than our normal eyes) allow us to see when thrown into the  vertical o Best suited for seeing far and deep, ancient, mystic  In touch with the deep self and open that deep intuitive eye—not being so swept  up or away from the past, we’ve lost touch with our deep unconscious roots—cut  off from old rituals, old ways of being Bollingen: a tower that Jung built  His home away from home where he lived simply in solitude, and silence;  modest harmony in nature where creativity and play are close together  Silence and solitude are the twin sisters of the soul o How you find and get in touch with your deep self  Slowing down and let the silence and solitude in
