In 1990, Edward Edinger published, "The Living Psyche: A Jungian Analysis in Pictures," based on Dr. Edinger's ten years of analysis with a prominent set, costumes and lighting designer for Broadway plays and operas. The book is based on a series of over 100 paintings created by the analysand, features analytical amplification and interpretation by Dr. Edinger and graphically demonstrates the reality of the living psyche.
This presentation will demonstrate the invaluable exposition of the way in which the psyche evolves when an individual deeply engages with images and themes presented in dreams and active imagination. Thirty select paintings that illustrate an arc and overview of the analytic work will be examined to demonstrate the purpose and meaning of a depth analysis.
1. Explore the evolution of the psyche as expressed by C. G. Jung through images.
2. Describe how dream images expressed through art can activate a connection to the Self.
3. Explain active imagination and its impact on the individuation process.
4. Discuss how dreams create equilibrium through symbolic understanding.
