Murray Stein, Linda Carter, and Lucienne Marguerat will dive into the world of Art and explore how it has been influenced by Jungian Analytical Psychology.

Linda will attempt to use the art as amplification of interaction and to use attachment research as a scientific ground.

The Asheville Jung Center will host Art and the Psyche on July 27th at 12PM ET. In this Seminar Art is the topic as it pertains to Analytical Psychology. As a chair of the IAAP's Art and Psyche Working Group, Linda Carter has worked with colleagues on the development of two conferences. In these conferences she successfully brought together a wide range of artists with members of the psychotherapeutic community. These events were alive, dynamic and temporary communities emerged as a result. By creating a container for interaction, new life came forward as the transcendent third. She will talk about these collective experiences and why she believes that they are important and life-giving for those of us interested in depth psychology. The Asheville Jung Center was founded in 2008 to advance the psychology of Carl Jung and promote an international Jungian community. It is affiliated with innerQuest Psychiatry and Counseling, a regional psychiatrist group.

Linda will then move from discussion of collective experiences to a focus on one particular clinical case where “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne,” a painting by Leonardo da Vinci became a central axis around which the treatment revolved. It was her hope that through an intense therapeutic alliance, a young mother could move toward an “earned secure attachment” and be able to offer her new baby a secure base, something missing in the young mother’s own history. Linda will attempt to use the art as amplification of interaction and to use attachment research as a scientific ground.

In this seminar Linda’s hope is to show the deep importance of the conjunction of art and psyche in the collective and in individuals and how such conjunctions create new life as artwork and relationship through the dynamics of emergence.

Join the Asheville Jung Center on Saturday, July 27th, at 12PM ET for the live online seminar. Seats are limited so please register soon.
