Jung wrote relatively little on actual childbirth or dying, the alpha and omega of human life. Both are totally embodied, instinctual, and archetypal experiences. These physical experiences – fully sensate – utterly impact our lives, and the lives of those close to us. We are all born of, and through, a womb and we all die. These crucial, mysterious entries and exits set the stage of life and draw a veil, or curtain, over the end of life as we know it. These archetypal initiations are the great humanizing core of who we are. The body is our vessel, our responsibility, our vehicle, and although it can be burdensome at times, it is our great gift.
In this workshop, we will discuss this topic, take time to meet one another, share abbreviated active imaginal experiences, journal, and have an opportunity for expression in art. Additionally, Penelope will share the preparatory dreams and dying process of a long-term analysand (Laura) as written in her recent book, Polishing the Bones. As her analyst for many years, Penelope was privileged to attend and support the last three months of Laura’s life through her dying and death.
