The Talks of Dr. Lionel Corbett – 1 – Religious Function of the Psyche

Greetings everyone –

I hope that you’re having a wonderful weekend and that the cloud of the coronavirus pandemic isn’t causing you more than your share of grief.

As part of finding new ways to remain productive while we are enjoying domestic quarantine, I am extremely pleased to announce we are launching a new project: The Talks of Dr. Lionel Corbett. By special arrangement, we will be bringing you the best talks starting this coming Wednesday morning, May 6 from 9:30AM to 11:30AM.  The first talk will be The Religious Function of the Psyche.  Working closely with author, professor and religious scholar, Dr. F. Gard Jameson, my good friend and Myth Salon colleague Dr. Will Linn and I are seeking to explore new frontiers of scholarship during the time of everyone’s home confinement.  These Zoom sessions will be working sessions where Dr. Corbett will be delivering material sufficient for an hour of edited material. Our expectation is to offer live attendance at the Zoom session as well as live-streaming on YouTube.

 

Lionel Corbett, MD, is a Jungian Psychoanalyst, trained in medicine and psychiatry in England, as a Jungian Analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago.  His work is based on the idea of interconnectivity, that by working in groups on individual material, we bring transformative consciousness to the greater whole.  Dr. Corbett is a founding member and Executive Director of Psyche and the Sacred: A Contemplative Community (PSCC, est. 2016), a non-profit community that gathers through lectures and dreamwork seminars.  Dr. Corbett is core-faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute where he teaches depth psychology in the Depth, Archetypal and Jungian Studies, and Integrative Therapies and Healing Practices doctoral programs. A renowned international scholar, he has written and presented professional papers at APA and Jungian conferences in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.  He has authored five books: Psyche and The SacredThe Religious Function of the PsycheThe Sacred Cauldron: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual PracticeThe Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic approaches to Suffering, and Understanding Evil: A Psychotherapist’s Guide. Dr. Corbett is also co-editor of Jung and AgingDepth Psychology: Meditations in the FieldPsychology at the Threshold, and Psyche’s Stories: Jungian Interpretations of Fairy Tales.

We anticipate The Talks of Dr. Lionel Corbett will be extremely engaging and a rare opportunity to participate in the coming together of a fascinating lecture series that will enrich students, scholars, healers and practitioners for many years to come.

************************************************

I know that Wednesday morning isn’t exactly the most open time in anyone’s schedule. But given the constraints and availabilities created by the pandemic, while we are enjoying our domestic quarantine, I am extremely pleased to announce a new project: The Talks of Dr. Lionel Corbett. By special arrangement, we will be bringing you the best talks starting this coming Wednesday morning, May 6 from 9:30AM to 11:30AM PST.  The first talk will be The Religious Function of the Psyche and each of the next Wednesdays at 9:30AM PST, we will record a different talk.  Working closely with author, professor and religious scholar, Dr. F. Gard Jameson, my good friend and Myth Salon colleague Dr. Will Linn and I are seeking to explore new frontiers of scholarship during the time of everyone’s home confinement.  These Zoom sessions will be working sessions where Dr. Corbett will be delivering material sufficient for an hour of edited material. Our expectation is to offer live attendance at the Zoom session as well as live-streaming on YouTube.

Wishing you well,
