An exploration of the concept of Anima/Animus and its relevance to the spirit of these times.
Anima/Animus, as personifications of the unconscious, challenge us to go deeper into ourselves and our experience of life. We see them in objects we desire and fear. When unconscious, our view of reality is distorted. At the same time, these figures help us to attain a more fluid and enlarged vision of ourselves, and a richer connection to the unconscious as an unending source of knowledge, meaning and vitality.
Anima/Animus are integral to C.G. Jung’s conceptualization of the structure of the psyche. They can also instill conflict, confusion, and ambivalence, given that many of us have moved away from a binary view of gender. We will review Jung’s comments on the subject, its place in his theoretical framework, and how this concept was further defined by subsequent writers. We will also explore some of the assumptions regarding anima/animus that have been challenged and reexamined due to changes in cultural attitudes.
Course will include assigned readings, the presentation of dream material, case vignettes, and the sharing of personal experience of these archetypes.
