ENIGMA: TRANSCENDENCE FROM THE SKIN TO THE SOUL Decoding the mysterious language of the Soul-Ashok Bedi, MD -Friday, November 1, 2019 │ 8:30am-4:30pm

November 1, 2019

Enigma: Transcendence from the Skin to the Soul Decoding the mysterious language of the Soul Ashok Bedi, MD Friday, November 1, 2019 │ 8:30am-4:30pm   There is a constant dance between our Ego and our Soul. Both must maintain their autonomy and purposefulness. Our Ego and Persona is directed to adaptation to the outer world while the Soul must keep us aligned with our inner life and our teleological destiny. Ego and Persona must help us navigate the Spirit of the Time while the Soul must keep us aligned with the Spirit of the Depth. Each is one the two legs that we stand on in the present time and eternal time. Their task is to maintain alignment with their respective purpose yet coordinate to optimize one’s terrestrial Self with their Celestial Self.  To undertake the Magnum Opus of Individuation, we need their partnership without being intrusive into each other’s domain. How these entities maintain this Complexio Oppositorium is an Enigma. Over eons, these Dioscuri twins have evolved a Mysterious language of the Soul. The decoding of this Enigma is mediated by the archetype of the Divine Tricksters: Hermes and Krishna.  This Enigma to decode the Mysterious language of the Soul will be explored from a Neuroscience and Analytical perspectives.   Enigma-Nov-2019-Flyer v3

JUNGIAN ENCOUNTER WITH THE EROTIC SOUL OF INDIA FROM SEXUALITY TO SPIRITUALITY FEBRUARY 15-26, 2020 With Guest Lecturer - Ashok Bedi M.D. Join us in the upcoming encounter with the Soul of India this coming winter. We begin our journey in the capital New Delhi. From there we continue to explore the erotic temples of Khajuraho and, the Eros of human civilization in the visit to Taj Mahal. We experience an evening and morning boat ride in Varanasi, the holiest site for Hindus and the oldest continuous living city in the world. At Chambal Safari Lodge we conclude our journey with a three-day Jungian retreat and reflect on our experiences. Together, we will explore the mysteries of the erotic soul of India embodied in Taj Mahal, hajuraho and Varanasi. We will delve into the mystery of Kamasutra and its Tantric prescription from sexuality to spirituality incarnate in stone in Taj Mahal and Khajuraho and in the Tantric tradition of Shiva and Shakti at Varanasi. The Tantric and Erotic traditions of India consider the human and sexual relationship as a prototype for the Mystical union with the Divine– the Unio Mystica. These issues will be explored on the sacred ground of the birth of these ideas from an Eastern and Jungian perspectives. Participants may find correlation between these concepts and their own life an interesting illumination. It may be fascinating to explore your reflections with your peers and participants from different countries during our tour with the backdrop of the dreamlike world of India. The Jungian faculty for the journey is Ashok Bedi, M.D., a Jungian psychoanalyst and a board-certified psychiatrist.

Live Online! Weeklong Seminar Transformation and the Power of the Imagination January 10–15, 2021

About the Weeklong Seminar Transformation and the Power of the Imagination
 January 10-15, 2021 All the works of man have their origin in creative imagination. —C.G. Jung In some cultures, imagination is seen as a creative act parallel to the creation of the universe. Poets, artists, composers, writers, thinkers, and others share their vision—inviting us to enter the world of the imaginal, expand our consciousness, and find our own inspiration. Thus, the imagination can show us the way, give us inspiration and hope, and open us to the possibilities that abound. Transforming the imaginal into reality is an alchemical process that can be a catalyst for creativity and individuation. This past year has tested all of us in ways we weren’t prepared for. The Coronavirus has given rise to fear of illness or death, mental health challenges, economic hardship, racial unrest, political divisiveness and a great disruption of our personal and professional lives. We have endured being separated from loved ones and community—but most of all, we have been in a constant state of ambiguity and uncertainty. Many of the world’s greatest philosophers, creative artists, writers, and thinkers turned out their most important works during times of social and economic disruption, turmoil and stress. The psychiatrist Gerald Epstein writes that it is necessary to endure stressful and fearful situations as they are part of the Individuation process—not unlike rites of initiation. But how do we persevere when everything feels chaotic in this state of liminality? How do we keep heart, psyche, and soul alive? Jung’s ideas supply no easy answers, but they can help us reframe our questions and change our perspective. From a Jungian perspective, dropping into an imaginal space through reflection, meditation, active…

Complexes: Pathways to the Soul – Ashok Bedi, MD, Jungian Analyst Saturday, January 29, 2022 │ 8:30am-4:00pm via Zoom | Convert Time Zone| 6 CEs

Complexes: Pathways to the Soul Ashok Bedi, MD, Jungian Analyst Saturday, January 29, 2022 │ 8:30am-4:00pm via Zoom | Convert Time Zone| 6 CEs Complexes are the building blocks of the DNA of our Psyche. Embedded in the personal and the collective unconscious, they are the sand grit around which the oyster of our personality can gestate the pearls of new potentials. They help us harvest the gifts of the archetypes that form the nucleus of the complexes. The first to use the term complexes was Breuer, from whom both Jung and Freud borrowed the concept.  Jung established the experimental evidence for the complexes using his word association tests. This led to a transient collaboration between Jung and Freud and Freud established the centrality of the Oedipus complex as central dynamic of neurosis. This also led to the eventual breakup of their collaboration when Jung proposed that there are infinite complexes, and they may have an enriching impact on the personality if made conscious and assimilated in the Ego complex. Complexes are the foundation of the psyche and form the matrix in which the archetypes, alchemy, typology and individuation may blossom. Jung had his own complexes based on the word association tests – we will explore these as well.   A complex, well integrated with the ego complex leads to individuation, a complex at war with the ego complex leads to neurosis, a complex takeover of the personality leads to psychosis. Join me in exploring the mystery and the mastery of the complexes. Suggested Reading     - Jung, C. G. (1969). The structure and dynamics of the psyche, Volume 8 (2d -- ed. Vol. 20). Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press., pages 92-106, paras 194-219     - Jung, C.…
