A non-profit organisation, which aims to provide a contact for people

Through monthly meetings, workshops, other activities and our library,
we seek to help people to understand their own inner journey
and the world today - from a Jungian perspective.

We normally meet at 7:30 for 8:00 pm on the first Friday of each month
at MacKillop House Conference Centre, 50 Archibald Street, Lyneham (See map).

"The Scholastic Ideology of learning and Thinking

Driven by Questions rather than Answers"

PhD Student Timothy Hatfield

This month we are meeting only on-line, by Zoom.
See contact details, below.

Timothy Hatfield believes that learning and thinking are driven by questions rather than answers. He integrates this scholastic ideology into his teaching through the implementation of interactive resources and collaborative techniques that encourage students to explore complex ideas, igniting their passion for and engagement with psychology, and prompting them to see themselves as fellow explorers.

He encourages students to discover answers for themselves, by skillfully facilitating reflective and collaborative discussions within a productive and safe learning environment. The deep satisfaction that manifests following an audible "Aha!" of student comprehension, is the most gratifying part of tutoring for Timothy, and he aspires to facilitate these precious moments of excitement and mastery in all students by questioning effectively.

Timothy Hatfield has taught into four different courses since first taking on a tutoring position at ANU in 2014. He has played a vital role in the redesign of the Health Psychology course, and stamped his own mark on classes by independently implementing his own creative teaching techniques. He was recognised with a 2016 ANU Vice-Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Tutoring or Demonstrating, which followed his 2015 ANU College of Science Award for Excellence in Tutoring or Demonstrating.

"Jung and the Dead

Active Imagination and the Unconscious Terrain"

Dr Stephani Stephens

at MacKillop House, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham, ACT (and by Zoom) 

Since the Since the publication of Jung's Red Book, significant amount of material on the dead has come to light and points to the possibility that when Jung referred to ‘the dead’ in his personal material he was, in fact, referring to the literal dead as a separate category of psychic experience.

In this presentation, Dr. Stephens introduces material from Jung’s Memories, Dreams, Reflections, and the Red Book, to raise questions about how Jung experienced the dead during his initial encounters with his visionary material.

Dr. Stephens will question some previously held assumptions about visionary encounters within the therapeutic technique known as ‘active imagination’ as well as raising the Jung's own questions about psychological inheritance and the work we do on behalf of our ancestors.

Stephani Stephens holds a PhD in Jungian Psychology from the University of Kent, Canterbury UK. She served on the Executive Committee of the International Association of Jungian Studies from 2004 to 2013. After a career of teaching Classics internationally, she currently lectures at the University of Canberra in Counselling. She is the author of C.G. Jung and the Dead: Visions, Active Imagination and the Unconscious Terrain.
