The Wound as Bridge to the Numinous

with Laura Chapman, Jungian Analyst

The wound is the place where the Light enters you" – Rumi

Wounding is a fundamental part of human experience and can connect us to the undeveloped and unknown aspects of ourselves. When we bring conscious awareness to the experience of being wounded, the psyche can be activated. Working in this way brings forth an experience of soul and evokes the profound mystery of life, which can be numinous. This kind of process can contact what Carl Jung called "the spirit of the depths."

This opening can restore a sense of intactness alongside our woundedness and redirect the unarticulated parts of our wound into a form that assimilates healing, growth and transformation. Not all wounds heal completely, but when wounds are reexamined, they can lead to a reintegration that has a positive effect and continues to shape our consciousness as we evolve.

This workshop will show how wounding is connected to personal growth and can help us become more fully ourselves, a process Jung called individuation. The presentation will be a combination of lecture, dream material, case examples, and personal stories. Included will be time for individual exploration.
