When Unity and Brotherhood Disintegrate - Yugoslavia Reflections

When Unity and Brotherhood Disintegrate - Yugoslavia Reflections

The Speaker reflects on the nature of inter-ethnic violence attempting to move away from easy logical "explanations". He proposes instead a model of an ecological perspective to violence. He identifies two types of security: "primitive" (based on exclusion and sharp polarisation) and "differentiated" (based on appreciation and acceptance of differences). He argues that it is ineffective to attempt to stop violence by condemning, if we fail to appreciate the numinosity and powerfully "dark" attraction that violence has on us. Using Jungian ideas, he proposes new ways of grasping the complexity and paradoxes involved in this kind of violence.

Renos Papadopoulos is Professor of Analytical Psychology at the University of Essex, he is Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Tavistock Clinic and Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice. As consultant to the United Nations, he has worked with refugees and other survivors of political violence in many countries

Dr Murray Cox

Studying by a Dark Lamp; Paradox, Psychosis, and Poiesis

Murray Cox leads us to the unexpected origin of the title of his lecture. He also explores themes from Shakespeare and discusses paradox, poetry“ poises: the calling into existence of that which was not there before “ and theology. He speaks about "therapeutic space" and gives numerous examples of the intuitive wisdom which has bubbled to the surface in his work with groups of psychotics and others. He describes the structure of the therapeutic process in terms of time depth and mutuality.

Dr Murray Cox was Consultant Psychiatrist a Broadmoor Hospital from 1970 until his death in 1997. He took forensic psychotherapy in a new direction, and is most celebrated for his book Shakespeare Comes to Broadmoor when he initiated the Royal Shakespeare Company"s visit to perform Hamlet in Broadmoor. In his book Mutative Metaphors in Psychotherapy he wrote: "The Aeolian Mode is an inspiration to all those who know that before the image stirs the surface it has touched the depths and can bring about healing and understanding."

Bishop Kenneth Cragg

As Muslims see Themselves - in the Light of their Qur'an

Kenneth Cragg was the Bishop of Jerusalem. When in 1991 he presented this talk, it had been almost 40 years since Islam had been the subject of a Guild lecture. Kenneth spoke Arabic fluently and understood the meaning of Qur'an “ as it is understood by Muslims “ through his love of that work, and through his intimate knowledge of many Muslim people and their culture. This pre-"9/11" talk is not loaded with the expectation of terrorism within Islam or with the exegesis of terrorism"s meaning, but explains its precepts clearly and concisely. He asks us to find and realise and celebrate the overlap" which Islam shares with Christianity.

Lawrence van der Post & Vera von der Heydt

Our Time and its Shadow (2 lectures)

Thirty years ago, at the Spring conference of 1976 the Guild made a recording of one of its lectures for the first time. It was an extremely important occasion, since the two speakers were Vera von der Heydt, who had represented, perhaps, the very essence of what the Guild stood for since its earliest days, and Sir Lawrence van der Post, one of the most renowned speakers ever to have spoken to the Guild. we are hoping to re-releasing this recording, completely remastered.

Unfortunately, this old and historic recording is not of the best sound quality.

Prof Giles Quispel

The Gospel of Thomas and the Trial of Jesus

In the mid 1950s, Professor Quispel became the first scholar to read and translate a newly discovered text, which proved to be the first complete version of the Gospel of Thomas.

This Judeo-Christian text originated in Mesopotamia, part of the writings of an ancient branch of Christianity which later spread east across Asia, as far as China and India. It is a collection of secret sayings of the living Jesus", many of which have parallels in the canonical Gospels. Prof. Quispel discusses several of these in detail, enriching our knowledge of Jesus of Nazareth, and shedding light on the likely origins of this extraordinary document. He devotes part of the lecture to a remarkable prediction of Jesus" that He would destroy the Temple, and that it would never again be rebuilt. Prof Quispel also discusses certain aspects of Gnosticism (the Gospel of Thomas is not considered a Gnostic text), and shows parallels between the Gospel of Thomas and the writings of Carl Jung.

Molly Tuby

Alchemy and the Search

In this excellent introduction to alchemy the speaker draws a parallel between it and Jung"s individuation process, describing alchemists as "passionate and dedicated explorers whose psychic experiences were projected onto the materials in the vessel." The speaker expands the talk with two dreams, she looks at alchemy within an historic context and finally explores the "unus mundus" in which matter and spirit are united.

Molly Tuby was born in Alexandria and celebrates her 90th birthday on 27th March 2007. She is a past chair and honorary fellow of the Guild of Pastoral Psychology, a Jungian analyst, a Senior Analyst with The Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists, former editor of Harvest and president of the Analytical Psychologists club.

Molly Tuby

The Shadow

This talk is deceptively simple. Through Jung's vital concept of the shadow Molly touches on the mechanism of projection and the experience of evil. She writes "experience shows that there is no possibility of contacting the deeper regions of the psyche without dealing first with the shadow. The shadow is a barrier to the true centre, to the Self."
