EXPLORING OUR PERSONAL & COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS… This powerful process works with the totality of the psyche: the part derived from our personal and individual experience and that which is our common inheritance as humans.

This series offers a body-centered approach to explore our totality, integrate universal archetypes, and to access the collective experience as a mirror to build the bridge to our True Self. Through ‘Psychodrama’ students engage in spontaneous dramatization, role playing, and dramatic self-presentation to investigate and gain insight into their lives.

The ‘Collective Unconscious’ is psychologist Carl Jung’s term for the inborn aspect of the psyche. In animals, we call it instinct, that which allows a newborn turtle to know which way the water is and to go straight for it. There from the beginning, like the ability of an infant to recognize a human smile, it reveals itself later in mythological motifs or primordial images.

Whereas the personal unconscious consists for the most part of complexes, the content of the collective unconscious is made up essentially of archetypes: “elementary” or “primordial thoughts” or literally pre-existent forms, shared and, in that sense, universal. Often the images speak to us of the Mysterious and the Eternal.

“The collective unconscious contains the whole spiritual heritage of mankind’s evolution born anew in the brain structure of every individual.” ~ C.G. Jung
