Depth Psychology Alliance and Assisi Institute have teamed up to bring you a complimentary LIVE opening address by Jungian analyst, Dr. Michael Conforti at the upcoming conference, "What Shapes A Life: An Archetypal Developmental Approach,"—FREE for all members of the Depth Psychology Alliance and Assisi communities!
In this 2-hour talk, Dr. Conforti will introduce the work and vision of Erich Neumann, and discuss how an archetypal perspective on developmental issues contributes to our understanding of the various passages occurring throughout life and the particular mandates and challenges associated with each of these.
It was the genius of Neumann and Jung to see how the discovery that Ontology recapitulates Phylogeny relates to both the individual developmental journey and the development of consciousness.
Dr. Conforti will also discuss what Erich Neumann termed a "Symbol Cannon" when speaking of the specific images and symbols associated with these various thresholds of life and how an understanding of these enables clinicians to make accurate assessments about our client’s stage of life and their ability to navigate these various life transitions.
Tune in around 10:20 am U.S. Pacific time/1:20 pm Eastern time for a short introduction to the event by Bonnie Bright and Loralee Scott-Conforti before we join Michael's talk live from the conference around 10:30 am PDT/1:30 EDT.
