The field of ancestry, although universal, is profoundly personal. Therefore, it requires a map and compass, the first to deepen into it and the second in order to get lost within it. Delving into the field of ancestry is, at first, a personal journey, where one looks for answers that are waiting to be found. However, it is also a way to find answers to unresolved, unattended and unredeemed issues in the familial and social sphere, and even within the territorial, cultural, and ecological spheres of life.
This course reviews and revisits the field of ancestry guided by the observations, understandings, and teachings of four giants in the psychological and spiritual disciplines: C.G. Jung, James Hillman, Bert Hellinger, and Malidoma Somé. This course will work with Jung’s complex theory and Hillman’s four revisioning moves (personifying, psychologizing, pathologizing, and de-humanizing) in combination with Hellinger’s phenomenological procedures, along with Malidoma’s indigenous African teachings regarding ancestors. This course will offer the basic guiding points so that you can walk into the field, knowing your way in and out.
This course is ideal if
- You are a student or practitioner of Jungian Psychology, and/or Jung-informed therapists and healers wanting to deepen into the practicalities of Jung’s Complex Theory.
- You are a student or practitioner of Jungian Psychology, Archetypal Psychology, and/or Jung-informed therapists and healers wanting to explore practical applications of Hillman’s four psychological moves in Re-visioning Psychology in relation to ancestry.
- You are a student or practitioner of Jungian psychology, as well as psychotherapists and healers from all fields, wanting to review the importance of ancestry, and its clinical applications.
Week #1: A way to map out our personal field of ancestry, through Jung’s Complex Theory.
Week #2: A way to move and look into the field of ancestry, through Hillman’s re-visioning moves.
Week #3: A way to perceive the actuality and work of the soul within the field of ancestry, through Hellinger’s Phenomenology and Peter Levine’s body-based perception.
Week #4: A way to be in relation with the ancestors, through Malidoma’s Legacy to the West.
By the End of This Course You Will Be Able To
- Explore your personal field of ancestry as a way to explore the unconscious, and help clients/patients to start exploring their own field of ancestry (and their own unconscious).
- Start using Hillman’s four psychological moves (personifying, pathologizing, psychologizing, and de-humanizing) as ways to know and ways to look into in the field of ancestry.
- Perceive basic phenomenological hints that emerge from the field of ancestry.
- Give the first steps towards building a strong relationship with your ancestors.
