This talk will use the images of the Major Arcana of the Tarot, often referred to as the Fool’s Journey (from nigredo to individuation), to paint a landscape of the individuation process of the transgender individual.
Topics to be covered include: analytic dynamics, coming out, community, rites of passage, parents and mentorship, sexual orientation, the Self, politics and justice, liminality, the struggle for equality, sexual differences, addiction, mental health/substance abuse disorders, the use of language, self-acceptance, and individuation.
