Passion, Obsession, Depression: Exploring Dynamic Images of the Dark Mother
“The primordial image expresses the unique and unconditioned creative power of the psyche.” – C.G.Jung, CW Volume 6, para.748
As a culture we are fascinated with images of mother that are both terrifying and exceptionally compelling. Using both an archetypal and developmental lens we will explore the nature of three aspects of the sinister mother: the vampire mother, the dead mother, and the Medea mother. Art, myth, theater, as well as theories on infant, child and adult development will be our guides. We will grapple with internal maternal energies (complexes) and also with dark mothers in our everyday lives.
Audio Included: All video purchases will also include a free audio MP3 of each seminar.

2) Amplify through both an Intersubjective and Jungian lens, the manifestations of the Dark Mother Complex.
3) Explain the archetypal underpinnings of the Dark Mother.
4) Identify the clinical manifestations of the Dark Mother through art, myth and case material.
