For those of us who work with dreamers and their dreams, probably one of the most asked questions is "how do I remember my dreams"!

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

Loss of Identity: A summoning of the Numinous | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

"There’s a famous story that Robert Bly tells about Carl Jung who, whenever a friend reported enthusiastically, ‘I have just been promoted!’ Jung would say, ‘I’m very sorry to hear that; but if we all stick together, I think we will get through it.’ On the other hand, if a friend arrived depressed and ashamed, saying, ‘I’ve just been fired,’ Jung would say, ‘Let’s open a bottle of wine; this is wonderful news; something good will happen now.’

While this is not tech comm specific, you might find that this is helpful with being around a lot of technical communicators. I had to teach myself these tips and figure them out the hard way. Have an advantage by reading this article. I have found that once I figured out some of the organizational skills, much of the same processes were helpful in teaching me how to approach content strategy.

WE ALL AN LEARN OR RE-LEARN TO A DEGREE JUST BECAUSE A PERSON HAS AUTISM DOES NOT MEAN WE CANT LEARN TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER TOGETHER!  WHAT YOU THINK?

Terri Rice's curator insight, February 13, 2015 11:51 AM

  This article caught my attention because my daughter is involved with a young man who, now I realize, must have a form of this disorder. I will strive to be a great deal more patient and creative with him in the future.

   I was very intrigued with the very last paragraph oh of this article. The topic of Universal Design is very close to my heart because I am "disabled", I prefer the term "challenged", but most people seem to think using the negative word. Regardless of labels, I need to have UD implemented for me and I also insist on my classrooms having arrangements and/or seating, plus technological tools in place to accommodate all persons without having to ask...and then wait for admin to follow through. Anyway, my point at the beginning of this very long speech was how I was glad to see UD referred to, but I was then disappointed because no concrete examples were shared as to how the office/meeting environment can implement UD.

    I do recommend reading this article, though the links are disappointing too. They take you in circles so beware.

Tree roots form a sort of "neural network" with one another, in an antifragile complex adaptive system

Tree roots form a sort of "neural network" with one another, in an antifragile complex adaptive system | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

"In this real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration, Professor Suzanne Simard shows that all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected, with the largest, oldest, "mother trees" serving as hubs. The underground exchange of nutrients increases the survival of younger trees linked into the network of old trees. Amazingly, we find that in a forest, 1+1 equals more than 2"

A Jungian Analyst Talks about Psychological Types

A Jungian Analyst Talks about Psychological Types | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

John Beebe, M.D., is a Jungian analyst, editor of the San Francisco Jung Library Journal, co-editor of the Journal of Analytical Psychology, and an expert on Jung's psychological types.

While many people have become familiar with psychological types as a way of examining the differences between people, Dr. Beebe has been pioneering their use intrapsychically as a way to explore the depths of the psyche.

 

Trained at the Jung Institute in San Francisco with its strong tradition of interest in typology, in this wonderfully informal interview he gives us an intimate glimpse of what this neglected dimension of typology looks like in practice. He explains how his analysands often come to their own insights into their psychological types, and how he, himself, discovered the importance of dreams through his own depression, and encountered his own anima in the form of a Chinese laundress. And he deals with related questions about types and archetypes, and types and the inferior... (Click title for more)

Types of Personality

Types of Personality | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

The word “personality” often gets used pretty broadly today: we talk of someone “having personality” or “being a personality” – meaning that there’s something particularly expressive or obvious or typical about the way they conduct or express themselves; we talk about showbiz or sporting “personalities” – meaning they have a profile and a way about them that attracts attention.

 

Carl Jung’s theories have been around for almost 100 years now and are still very influential on the way that psychologists think about personality. As the table below illustrates, Jung proposed four pairs of “either or” mental preferences or what can be seen as “mental muscles”. We all have both preferences but one in each pair will be dominant over the other. Each item pair is described on the left of the chart with the word in red on the right explaining in one word what it is essentially targeting. Although this is certainly not the only way to classify personality, Jung’s model has been widely used on an... (Click title for more)

None of Us is Just One Thing - Robert Johnson

None of Us is Just One Thing - Robert Johnson | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

The Jung Center of Houston, Texas

"None of us is just one thing. We are not mono dimensional creatures; we are rich combinations of the infinitely varied archetypes. Each of us is part heroine or hero and part coward, part parent and part child, part saint and part thief. It is in learning to identify these great archetypal motifs within ourselves, learning to honour each one as a legitimate human trait, learning to live out the energy of each in a constructive way, that we make inner work a great odyssey of the spirit."

Authentic Spiritual Writing - John O'Donohue

Authentic Spiritual Writing - John O'Donohue | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

"Authentic spiritual writing should have the danger of the 'two edged sword', it should be taut and hold that creative tension between redemptive illumination and prophetic challenge. Most of what passes for spiritual writing nowadays is safe, bland and repetitive. It is 'flat earth' talk that spreads smoothly on to any thought surface. It lacks any infusion of the raw otherness or the danger of the transcendent. The God behind it seems to be asleep. It is patently feeble at awakening or engaging any of the deeper presences in the soul. Spirituality seminars, religious discussion groups and prayer circles seem to be submerged under great white drifts of this repetitive snow-talk. When a gust of questioning or a ray of criticism comes through, this snow-talk melts as if it were never there. Bookshops are full of spiritual books that are often empty and inane. The mediocre and the banal are necessary in offering us respite from the searing fire of the soul. The banal quietly sustains the normality of routines that save us from falling totally into the abyss of ourselves. However, when banality is fitted with a turbo motor as so often in contemporary spirituality, it becomes grating and unbearable. The proper echo of emptiness is silence, not intensity" - John O'Donohue

Awakened Leadership

Awakened Leadership | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it

"May the gift of leadership awaken in you as a
vocation,Keep you mindful of the providence that calls you to
serve.As high over the mountains the eagle spreads its
wings,May your perspective be larger than the view from
the foothills.When the way is flat and dull in times of gray
endurance,May your imagination continue to evoke horizons.When thirst burns in times of drought,
May you be blessed to find the wells.May you have the wisdom to read time clearly
And know when the seed of change will flourish.In your heart may there be a sanctuary
For the stillness where clarity is born.May your work be infused with passion and creativity
And have the wisdom to balance compassion and
challenge.May your soul find the graciousness
To rise above the fester of small mediocrities.
May your power never become a shell
Wherein your heart would silently atrophy.
May you welcome your own vulnerability
As the ground where healing and truth join.May integrity of soul be your first ideal.
The source that will guide and bless your work." John O'Donohue

Loss and Redemption

Loss and Redemption | Pondering Wholeness | Scoop.it
Is there redemption in suffering? Can we move through loss and trauma to make it a meaningful experience?

 

Jung speaks of the numinous experience. This is the experience that puts us in touch with the transpersonal aspect of ourselves, the divine within, the Self Archetype. One can say that this is what happened to my mom. For a moment, she connected with her Self Archetype and knew that she needed to live. Perhaps she is not done here yet.

 

Now, three weeks later, has this numinous experience changed her? Has she realized that she has had a profoundly potentially transformative experience? I am sure she will never be the same again, but has she been able to extract meaning and will she be able to move forward with a new intention? Or will she slip into a depression and then from there move back into her normal way of being?

 

We all have these numinous experiences during our lives. Moments of resolve that we feel connected to something deep within us, but.... (click title for more)
