While aging is nature’s mandate, becoming an elder requires a conscious relationship with one’s station in life where the horizon is closer and limitations of the body are more palpable. Ideally, the elder brings the wisdom gained through the journey of life to his/her own current physical and psychological condition and relationships, whereas the merely older is consumed by survival and fear of death. In this presentation we will consider some of the challenges in working analytically with an older population, including how we as older analysts live with death, finding meaning in the aging process itself, and bring a conscious awareness of these issues into a more intimate relationship to our work with patients. In other words, how do we live with death and how do we bring death to the intimate container of the work with our older patients?

THE C.G. JUNG CLUB OF ORANGE COUNTY
The C.G. Jung Club of Orange County provides quality educational programs designed to promote the study and discussion of Jungian Psychology, also known as Depth Psychology. The programs elaborate and amplify the ideas of C.G. Jung by exploring diverse perspectives of Jungian Psychology, as well as a wide range of subjects studied by Jung and his followers, such as mythology and comparative religion. We seek to understand the human psyche through the psychological theories and therapeutic methods pioneered by C.G. Jung and the current use of Jungian concepts by contemporary Jungian analysts.
