This year’s Jungian Concepts Seminar is being presented by eight seasoned Jungian analysts.   This seminar is open to anyone interested in exploring Jung’s concepts, and is suitable for both new and returning participants, as topics vary from year to year.  Questions and discussion will be welcome at each session.

Friday January 23 (Lorna Crowl): Life Through A Purposive Lens

What could possibly be purposeful in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the 911 bombing, your child’s death, your breast cancer?  Did you ever feel that the blessings you have received, financially, professionally, personally, were truly gifts; “Wow did I luck out!”  Is finding meaning in these events merely a psychologically hygienic way of being in the world, or are there really things that we need from these sometimes unfathomable occurrences that we, either personally or collectively, need?  In this seminar, we will explore these questions and participants will have an opportunity to reflect on and discuss the critical events in their lives which were imperative for them arriving at their current life situations.

About the Instructor
Lorna is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Wheaton who treats individuals and couples as well as provides supervision for Clinicians who are focused on depth work.  She began her career in the corporate world, and through her own analytic work, realized she needed to change directions and become a therapist, and ultimately an Analyst. Lorna is on the training staff at the Jung Institute in Chicago and serves on many evaluative committees for the Analyst Training Program as well as provides clinic supervision for attendees at the Institute’s Clinical Training Program.  She is a very relationally oriented Analyst who works with clients, their dreams and imaginal material, to uncover split off aspects of themselves with the goal of becoming more whole.  Lorna believes that suffering is a purposeful function of being human and is to be embraced if we are to find the gold in the pain.  She obtained her B.A. In Psychology at the University of Wisconsin, and MSW at Aurora University.  She is licensed as an LCSW and became a Jungian Analyst in 2008.
