The workshop of last year

On Saturday-afternoon, May 26th 2018 in the C.G. Jung Library, Hilversum, a workshop was planned by the board of the library.

The meeting was characterized by active exploration of and exchange between the participants: IVAP-members, followers of the NAAP-Dream Seminar (2017-2018) and some students of the University of Leiden (following a course on Jung in 2018).

Jung’s hermeneutics (see below) was the point of departure.
Dr. Barbara Miller lead the participants in active exploration and Jungian interpretation of a dream and a fitting fairytale.

The essential character of hermeneutics, a science which was widely practiced in former times, consists in making successive additions of other analogies to the analogy given in the symbol: in the first place of subjective analogies produced at random by the patient, and then of objective analogies found by the analyst in the course of erudite research. This procedure widens and enriches the initial symbol, and the final outcome is an infinitely complex and varied picture, in which certain 'lines' of psychological development stand out as possibilities that are at once individual and collective…. Their validity is proved by their intense value for life.
(C. G. Jung Collected Works, Volume 7, paragraph 495)
