Friends of Jung Del Mar lecture to be held Sept. 13

Friends of Jung Del Mar will present a lecture by Willow Young on Sept. 13 at The Winston School (215 9th Street Del Mar, 92014). Doors open at 7 p.m., and the lecture begins at 7:30 p.m.

Young will speak on “The Archetypal Psyche Soma Dynamism Imagined and Expressed in the Asklepian Healing Tradition.”

The image of the wounded healer has accompanied healing traditions around the world for the last 3500 years. From 1500 BCE to 6th century AD, the Asklepian Healing Sanctuaries included the integration of mind, body and spirit. Attendees participated in sports, dance, dramatic theater, poetry, music, rituals of purification and sacrifice. Fasting, reintroduction of wild foods, and the drinking of the pure spring waters further prepared one to enter the Abaton, the space where ultimately patients slept to induce healing dreams.

The Sept. 13 event will explore how elements of the Aesklepian healing sanctuaries are relevant to contemporary clinical treatment. It will also examine the idea of Jung as a wounded healer and consider its meaning and clinical application to analytic work.

Willow Young, MA, MFT, is a certified Jungian Analyst affiliated with the C. G. Jung Study Center of Southern California, with offices in Santa Barbara and Ventura, Calif. She serves as chair of the MA Counseling Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where she also teaches.

$20 admission; Free for non-members.
