Whenever I mentioned the subject of my thesis, I would invariably be told of a horror story of some sort; my interlocutors always knew of “someone who had lost everything,” someone “who had lost his soul.” This is a topic that does not leave anybody indifferent and this very fact points towards the presence of an archetypal field.

Persona and shadow are both complexes and archetypes; as such they are ubiquitous and inevitable. They act like two siblings, one public, one hidden; what is accepted by ego-consciousness falls into Persona, what is rejected falls into Shadow.

Thesis Sharing For Training Candidates Only

Pathological Gambling: Misstep on the Path of Individuation.

Friday, April 16th 2010. 8 - 10 p.m
Jung Training Program. Jung Foundation
223 St Clair West, Toronto

Ego isolation, ego dissolution and ego inflation: such is the world of the pathological gambler in the casino. This mini-lecture will deal with these three main themes, which can all be considered as a misstep on the path of Individuation.

* Ego isolation: escape from the responsibilities of the present. (Puer/Puella archetype)
* Ego dissolution: Casino as the womb-like paradise (music, symbols, hypnosis...)
* Ego inflation: playing at being God.

The lecture will draw on testimonies of pathological gamblers (interviews, work with analysands, dreams...), excerpts from F. Dostoevsky's The Gambler as well as excerpts from movies. The last part of the lecture will be a discussion.

This seminar is reserved for candidates in the Jungian Training Program.
