SCA April 2017 Meeting


Jungian Psychology and Active Imagination

Walter McGerry, M.A.

 April 21st, 2017


Jungian psychotherapy is inclusive of healing wounds and enhancing the development of ego functioning and adaptation, as are psychoanalytic and other approaches. The work with what Freud called the unconscious and Jung called the personal unconscious. These constitute the first analysis, which is for the ego. This alone is quite an accomplishment beyond which only a few will go. Jungian approaches add to this the relationship to the collective unconscious including the Self. It is the relationship of a healthy enough ego to the eternal Self, which leads to individuation. This is often referred to as the second analysis. 

This lecture will be a brief but fairly comprehensive overview of Analytical Psychology. Participants can expect to come away with a basic understanding of the concepts of archetype, complex, transcendent function, individuation and active imagination. This will include an experiential aimed at working with the transcendent function in an active imagination process. 

Reflecting on the human condition and the mysteries of the human soul has been Walter’s lifelong career. This was his role in his extended and nuclear family.  Before coming to psychotherapy he was an artist and art teacher.
 
The cornerstone of his practice as a psychotherapist, which began over 30 years ago, and his own personal work, is love; informed by Jungian, post Jungian, Buddhist and Sufi thought, Kashmir Shaivism, and the thinking and practices of W. B. Yeats. He first met his Jungian and transpersonal mentor, Anne, in a dream in 1993. Dream work has been his modality ever since. His work is in recognizing the client’s relationship to psyche, which is a transpersonal, eternal, objective reality, and reflecting on it internally and with the client. Walter taught Theories and Practice and Case Consultation at Antioch University Seattle’s graduate psychology program for 17 years. And he has taught at Cornish College of the Arts and The Seattle Jung Society and presented at Bastyr University.
