Friday, January 20, 2017 - Active Imagination: Relating to the Unconscious
Presented by Patricia Landeche, LCSW
Patricia Landeche's lecture addressed Carl G. Jung's developed technique for investing contents of
the unconscious, which he called active imagination. She outlined some of the advantages to consider
that can 1) give us clarity and understanding when we have said or done things that are totally out of
character, 2) when our emotions overwhelm us, 3) when we just can not seem to do things we need
to do, or 4) when we need to find meaning and purpose for the events in our lives. In her lecture,
Patricia explored different practical ways of doing this work.

Friday, January 27, 2017 - From Ego/Self Identity to Ego/Self Relationship
Presented by Louis Deshotels, LCSW
Louis Deshotels presented a lecture on how a Jungian perspective development moves from Ego/Self
Identity, an inflated state, to isolation and alienation and then to experiences of connection to the Self
and dreams are an expression of connection between Ego and Self and can expose inflation and alienation,
as well as connection to the Self. Louis presented how, as this process goes on, the Ego learns its place
with the psyche. Louis' lecture focused on descriptions of these states.
