[W]e cannot apply our notion of time to the unconscious. Our consciousness can conceive of things only in temporal succession, our time is, therefore, essentially linked to the chronological sequence. In the unconscious this is different, because there everything lies together, so to speak.
C.G. Jung

Time is integral to many of C.G. Jung’s remarkable insights into the nature and dynamics of the psyche, from individual development to the unus mundus—the invisible and timeless foundation of reality.

Join ISAPZURICH and the Pari Center for an in-depth exploration of the ubiquitous yet mysterious phenomena of Psyche and Time from the perspectives of science, philosophy, symbolism, mythology, therapeutic practice, and culture.

About the Event: 

A defining characteristic of Carl Jung’s extraordinary life’s work is his engagement across all scales, from the cosmic and metaphysical to the personal and psychological. Another is his breadth of influences, from Hermetic to quantum worldviews. This is the context for our exploration of two ubiquitous phenomena that, like fish in water, we take for granted, but which on closer examination are profoundly puzzling: psyche and time. Our perspectives will be scientific, philosophical, symbolic and mythological, clinical and cultural as we zoom in from the universe to the practice room, and end with a trip to the cinema!

In the first two days we will explore the fundamental nature of time with theoretical physicist Shantena Sabbadini, and of psyche with applied physicist and Jungian Analyst Andrew Fellows. The next day we will enter the world of astrology—a lifelong interest of Jung’s that connects psyche and cosmos through time—with Jungian Analyst and professional astrologer Frédérique Dambreville. We will also explore synchronicity and the turning of the age through the symbolism of the scarab with Jungian scholar and educator Mathew Mather. On the fourth day, Jungian Analyst Deborah Egger will delve into the vital role of time in the psychotherapeutic process, and Mathew will follow up his previous presentation with an experiential workshop. On the last whole day, Jungian Analysts Yuriko Sato and Christopher Hauke will, respectively, present an Eastern view of psyche and time, and show how predominantly Western views have been depicted, and sometimes deconstructed, in film. The final morning will feature a dialogue among all the presenters responding to further questions and those aspects of the event which have generated most interest.

This will be an informal meeting with presentations by experts followed by roundtable discussions. The cost of the event is 1400.00 euros. The event fee includes a 6-night stay in private accommodation and all meals. It also includes activities, materials, sessions and workshops. The event starts on Tuesday June 14 at 19:00 with a welcome dinner and ends on Monday June 20 after lunch.

Participating in an event at the Pari Center means not only meeting with scholars and experts but living for a week in a medieval village, mingling with the tiny local population, eating local dishes and drinking local wines, appreciating the beauty of the surrounding countryside, and participating in a very gentle way of life far from the frenzy of work and city living. David Peat compared Pari to an alchemical vessel—a place where transformation can come about—as well as an opportunity to pause for a moment and re-assess one’s life. It’s a unique opportunity open to everyone.
