The Finnish-Estonian Group for Analytical Psychology Conference
“Being Strangers to Ourselves”
July 27th-30th, 2017
“In all cases of dissociation it is therefore necessary to integrate the unconscious into consciousness. This is a synthetic process which I have termed the individuation process.”
C. G. Jung
We invite you to participate at a gathering on the Baltic shores aimed at a deeper exploration of C.G. Jung’s conceptualization of dissociation, seen not only as a pathological phenomenon but as a function of the normal psyche and a way to individuation. The dissociation between the conscious and the unconscious mind is a central theme in C. G. Jung’s work. According to Jung the main therapeutic issue is how to integrate the dissociation both on personal and on a collective level. Those parts of us that are dissociated and/or projected out, often find their target in other individuals different from us. How we relate to the strange or to the stranger, outside of us and inside of us, both individually and collectively, is one of the focuses of the Summer Conference 2017.
