Depth Psych
Pioneered by William James, Sigmund Freud, and Carl Gustav Jung, Depth Psychology is the study of how we dialogue with the Unconscious via symbols, dreams, myth, art, nature. By paying attention to the messages that show up from beyond our conscious egos, we can be guided to greater understanding, transformation, and integration with the world around us, inner and outer.

Depth Insights » Stones, Spaceshots, and Shadow Siblings: Symbolic Review of Far Side of the Moon By Colleen Szabo

Depth Insights » Stones, Spaceshots, and Shadow Siblings: Symbolic Review of Far Side of the Moon By Colleen Szabo | Depth Psych | Scoop.it

Canadian Robert Lepage’s Far Side of the Moon (Le face cachée de la lune) is a marvelous alchemical stirring of science, history, myth, and philosophy. It’s refreshing in that, rather than portray integration as occurring between a man and woman, Lepage’s polarized human psyche is characterized by two brothers played by Lepage.

 

As opposed to frequent philosophizing from Philippe, we know nothing of André’s internal life. He is indeed the dark side of the moon, Philippe’s shadow. Popular film often portrays the integration drama from the standpoint of the worldly one. Materially successful protagonist discovers the depths of soul and feeling hidden beneath a restless seeking after socioeceonomic power; it’s the Scrooge portrait. Lepage gives us the flip of this cinematic norm; artist and visionary with Scrooge-like shadow-brother longs to experience his creative gifts reflected....

Depth Insights » A Spoonful of Depth Brings the Soul to Life: The Psychology of Mary Poppins by Stacey Jill Zackin

Depth Insights » A Spoonful of Depth Brings the Soul to Life: The Psychology of Mary Poppins by Stacey Jill Zackin | Depth Psych | Scoop.it

We cannot have the extraordinary without the ordinary. Just as the supernatural is hidden in the natural. In order to fly, you need something solid to take off from. It’s not the sky that interests me but the ground. . . . When I was in Hollywood the [script] writers said, surely Mary Poppins symbolizes the magic that lies behind everyday life. I said no, of course not, she is everyday life, which is composed of the concrete and the magic.

—P. L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins (in Lawson, 1999, p. 161)

 

Clearly, there is something special about Mary Poppins that captures the collective imagination, yet the goal of this essay is not to apply the analytic lens to better understand the character of Mary Poppins, but to utilize Mary Poppins as an analogical tool to better understand the character of depth psychologists.

 

Depth psychologists believe that within our unconscious lies a wealth of material that expands our capacity to understand, accept, release, and repair aspects of ourselves, that can lead to a more developed sense of wholeness and connection. Such information reveals itself through symbols, metaphors, dreams, imagery, intuition, synchronicity...

Depth Insights » A Soul Unleashed: The Archetype of Partnership, Dangerous Beauty and the Art of Relationship

Depth Insights » A Soul Unleashed: The Archetype of Partnership, Dangerous Beauty and the Art of Relationship | Depth Psych | Scoop.it

Toni Wolff, Carl Jung’s colleague, wrote about the need to add the fourfold structure of the feminine psyche to Jung’s theories of introversion/extraversion and the four functions. A woman’s psyche, as we all know, is different from a man’s, even when it is shaped by patriarchial tools like competition and ambition. Women, when free, are shaped to constantly reach deeper, for soulful love and wholeness, because soul is where we give birth to Spirit.

 

 "A woman…is by nature conditioned by the soul and she is more consistent in that her spirit and her sexuality are coloured by the psyche. Thus her consciousness is more comprehensive but less defined. . ." (Click title for more)

Death By Synchronicity & The Life Of Pi

Death By Synchronicity & The Life Of Pi | Depth Psych | Scoop.it

C. G. Jung recognized that in the moment of their greatest creative expression, the artist is an unconscious vehicle for something beyond themselves. At these times, their pen carries the unspoken voice of the collective whole of their culture. Like a medium or indigenous healer, what comes through them at this time can be a curative–healing comes as we hear the unspoken thing, as the needed but rejected quality in us comes into consciousness. Here the shadow’s waiting gift is born into our hearts.

 

Psyche’s roots are webs connecting us all. And more than that, the deepest place inside of us touches somewhere beyond time and space. Jung witnessed innumerable examples of our extending around these bounds in his client’s lives and dreams and in his own. He saw how often we do this, often only recognizing it later, sometimes when it’s too late. ‘Déjà vu’–French for ‘seeing again’–references this part of our cultural experience...

Laura M. Smith's curator insight, October 7, 2014 8:44 AM

I loved the movie, The Life of Pi. Such a powerful message on the human struggle for integration of the powerful forces that live within us. That we must consume the flesh of Salome as Jung did in The Red Book.

 

"Mr. Patel's is an astounding story, courage and endurance unparalleled in the history of ship-wrecks. Very few castaways can claim to have survived so long, and none in the company of an adult Bengal tiger." quote from the report read about Patel's survival.

 

Does this not speak to our own journey when in the presence of the truths about who we are? The tiger in us, the zebra, the hyena, and the orangutan. Dying to self is a series of small deaths, in each we learn and integrate and still we are more than the sum of our parts.

 

At the end it seems as if Pi has lost Richard Parker, as if he does not know that Richard Parker lives on in him.
