The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends. For all ego-consciousness is isolated; because it separates and discriminates, it knows only particulars, and it sees only those that can be related to the ego.

DreamIts essence is limitation, even though it reaches to the farthest nebulae among the stars. All consciousness separates; but in dreams we put on the likeness of that more universal, truer, more eternal man dwelling in the darkness of primordial night.

There he is still the whole, and the whole is in him, indistinguishable from nature and bare of all egohood. It is from these all-uniting depths that the dream arises, be it never so childish, grotesque, and immoral.(1)
 

The group is facilitated by Dorothea Wojnar.  Members of the group shared their dreams and used active imagination in working with the dreams.

Padma Menon:

"Indian Dance, the Agama Traditions and Direct Experience as Knowledge"


(at the MacKillop Conference Centre, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham  8-10 pm)
 

Indian dance traditions have been framed theoretically by the text Natya Sastra (estimated between 1st century BCE and 3rd century CE) which sets out the purpose and the practice of dance as a pathway to moksha or accessing the Brahman or expanded consciousness spaces.

In this talk, Padma Menon will draw on her experience of studying dance under a traditional teacher who was a tenth generation dancer in a lineage of priests ordained to perform dance as part of temple rituals. She will reflect on the ways in which dance practice was a contemplative tradition where knowledge through direct experience under structured experiential frameworks was valued.

The text, like other texts on embodied practices like the Yoga Sashtra, is thus a signpost, and the practice was the space of insight and transformation. While Natya Sastra’s position as the fifth Veda and the breaking of dance lineages in modern times has tended to align dance with the more intellectual and philosophical Vedanta traditions, there is much in the practice that points to more symbolic, ritual and archetypal interpretations (the Agama approaches).

Padma will include reflections on Carl Jung’s experiments as detailed in the Red Book, where he also delved into deliberate invoking of archetypes through personal practice. In times where intellectual knowing becomes the only recognised form of knowledge, Jung’s work and traditions such as Indian dance remind us there are experiences which could be embraced in richer ways through other means of ‘knowing’.

Padma Menon has over 30 years of international experience as a dancer, choreographer, teacher and facilitator. She has performed in hundreds of venues all over the world and created numerous contemporary and traditional Indian dance productions for high profile festivals and venues internationally.

Padma enjoyed a successful career in India performing professionally as a soloist since the age of nine. In her early twenties she founded one of Australia’s first professional multicultural dance companies and established a national and international reputation for cross-cultural work. She has worked in Europe in the renowned Korzo Production House as house choreographer and her work has been showcased in international festivals such as Cadance and the Holland Dance Festival.

The centre she founded in India in 2006 was part of the arts activism movement in India, working closely with human rights and social justice organisations to raise awareness of issues such as women’s rights. Padma spent fifteen years studying and performing in three classical Indian dance theatre styles—Bharatha Natyam, Kuchipudi and Mohini Attam. Padma also holds post graduate qualifications in Choreography specialising in Laban Movement Analysis from the Netherlands. She has also studied contemporary western dance, yoga and the Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu.

Dr David Russell

"The Art of Dying: Carl Jung and Shadow Work"


(at the MacKillop Conference Centre, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham  8-10 pm)
 

Carl Jung wrote a lot about the dead and post-death experiences but precious little on the psychological experience of dying. This was not unusual as in his writings he celebrated the light, individuation and one’s personal myth. As we know, the more powerful the brightness of the sun the bigger the shadow that is cast. The force of the shadow is unconscious.

Ars moriendi
, the classical literature on the art of dying needs to be revisited and Jung’s shadow work is proposed as a useful vehicle for this task.

David Russell is a past president of the Sydney Jung Society. He completed his undergraduate and postgraduate studies and research in psychology at the University of Sydney. Here he was introduced to the writings of Sigmund Freud (unusual for a Department of Psychology) and developed an ongoing enthusiasm for the history and philosophy of psychology.

After a few years in private practice he moved into an academic career, which culminated in the establishment of the Master of Analytical Psychology degree at the University of Western Sydney. David has currently returned to private practice in Sydney CBD.
