IMAGE OR ART?
Jungian Art Therapy, Trauma,
and Cultivating a Relationship
with the Unconscious
ONLINE PRESENTATION VIA ZOOM
Presenter: Jungian Analyst and Author Nora Swan-Foster
Jungian Art Therapy was written as an invitation to those students of Jung who wished to explore his ideas and concepts through the image with its applications for various challenges, including trauma. In this presentation I will explore Jung’s view that “psyche is image,” and that his notion of “the third thing” is integral to Jungian art therapy. While working in his Red Book, Jung’s use of art materials provided a deliberate and active alchemical engagement with the material world that opened the gates for the unconscious, for dialogues with inner figures, and to reconnect with the unfolding of his soul. Hidden behind these powerful images we discover Jung’s deep intimacy with the unconscious that grew out of tormented confrontations, grief and loss, his need for individuation, and his relationship to ancient and prophetic mysteries.
Please have your own journal with simple art supplies or pen and paper available.
