THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF EXILE
THROUGH A JUNGIAN LENS
Presenter: Lourdes Hernandez, MA, Jungian Analyst
The presentation will discuss the complex of displacement or exile and how it shapes the psyche of displaced individuals, making their lives feel incongruous and psychologically conflictual. The thesis explores how Jungian theory can assist displaced persons in fashioning a new mythic center that grounds the uncentered, culturally diverse self-states that develop from acculturation. It will discuss how Jungian analysis is uniquely suited to working with the exile complex through dreamwork, active imagination, and the transcendent function of the symbol--ultimately bringing meaning to the suffering of exile.
Lourdes Hernandez was marked by the traumas of war and political asylum when her family fled Cuba to take refuge in the United States. She holds post graduate degrees from Pacifica Graduate Institute and Regis University in hermeneutics, counseling, and Jungian and Archetypal Studies. She is a Diplomate Jungian Analyst with the IRSJA and has a bilingual private practice in Boulder, Colorado.
