591image Therapeutic Process as Return and (Re-) Emergence with Sylvia Brinton Perera, MA, Jungian Analyst

Just as earth is source, support, and home to humankind, so the mother’s body is source, support, and home of each infant. When the individual’s primal bond is scarred by basic faults, therapy often involves the female analysand’s falling through the painful wounds of the personal mother complex to meet the archetypal energies and images in deep therapeutic regression. This manifests initially through psychoidal phenomena, intense emotions, and the transferential dynamics of the therapeutic field. Sometimes expressed as shape-shifting images of the body/Self, which are similar to images of the goddess of nature revered since Neolithic times, the regression can enable reconnection to the healing feminine depths and the emergence of a more secure and authentic ego.

Sylvia Brinton Perera, MA, is a Jungian analyst who lives, practices, writes, and teaches in New York and Vermont. On the faculty and board of the Jung Institute of New York, she lectures and leads workshops internationally. Her publications include Descent to the Goddess: A Way of Initiation for Women; The Scapegoat Complex: Towards a Mythology of Shadow and Guilt; Dreams, A Portal to the Source (with E. Christopher Whitmont); Celtic Queen Maeve and Addiction: An Archetypal Perspective; and The Irish Bull God: Image of Multiform and Integral Masculinity.

Commentary is by Peter Demuth, Psy.D., Jungian Analyst and member of the Chicago Society of Jungian Analysts in private practice in Evanston, IL. More information about Dr. Demuth can be found at demuthpsychologicalservices.com
