Holding the tension of the erotic transference: embodying Captain Picard in Star Trek’s “The Perfect Mate”

Peggy Vermeesch explores how a therapist can accompany the type of patient whose healing and transformation depend on being given a second chance to experience a healthy parental first love through the myth of Star Trek.

In addition to the need for good boundaries, it is crucial to genuinely enjoy and love our patients when the coniunctio is constellated.

The New Borg in Star Trek Picard: transformation of the collective shadow

This is a different story than the hero journey we are so used to. In line with Erich Neumann’s theories on the New Ethic, evil is not defeated or killed. Instead, it is accepted as part of oneself, negotiated with, and allowed to transform.

What fairy tales can teach us about healing from early trauma and narcissistic abuse

This series of three articles explores what we can learn from fairy tales about the effects of growing up with a narcissistic or codependent parent and how one can break this cycle of intergenerational trauma and splitting.

Mary’s Child, Snow White, The Little Mermaid and The Frog King all provide clues and amplification. Special attention is given to the dynamics of love bombing, isolating, and gaslighting, and the trap of carrying someone else’s shadow. It is also shown how narcissistic abuse often stays unrecognized and hidden: to the person at the receiving end of it as well as their community.

Homeopathy and synchronicity

In accordance with the work of C.G. Jung, Dr Bernard Long explains how homeopathy can escape the law of causality in some aspects by relying on meaning through meaning: synchronicity.

It would be tempting for many reasons to bring homeopathy into the field of experimental medicine by means of conventional explanations and methods…

C.G. Jung, Gerard de Nerval, and Aurelia

Jung’s lecture on Aurélia by Nerval, published with the title On psychological and visionary art, was not simple to read, but it did provide a way to uncover a hidden part of Jung.

After reading this fascinating and challenging book I came to the conclusion that it was first and foremost about Jung, and that the essential was to be found in the 1945 lecture.

Toni Wolff’s structural forms of the feminine psyche

As a complement to C.G. Jung’s theory of the psychological functions (thinking, feeling, sensation, intuition), Wolff developed an innovative theory of the feminine psyche. One path to individuation is integrating all four structural forms or types.

Doing this work brings wholeness and a full life, and it provides some protection against the shadow possibilities of each archetype. This is equally true for women and men, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

Crying wolf! The homeopathic remedy lycopodium clavatum

Lycopodium clavatum is a very important remedy in the homeopathic pharmacopoeia.

It is haunted by its territory, by the concern of size and greatness. It is the remedy of the authoritarian crisis, of the separation from the symbiosis where the subject is confronted with the paternal function.
Bernard Long, M.D.

The need to acknowledge the archetypal forces within

The archetypal forces that are active deep within our unconscious call for expression, somehow, whether we ask for it or not, and whether we want it or not.

We don’t know in what form their call will come, nor to what purpose, but they will find a way into our conscious outer life. Our ego is instrumental in reducing the raw power of these archetypal forces. Peggy Vermeesch, PhD

The C.G. Jung Tower in Bollingen

Pictures of the tower in Bollingen

« From the beginning I felt the Tower as in some way a place of maturation – a maternal womb or maternal figure in which I could become what I was, what I am, and will be. It gave me a feeling as if I were being reborn in stone. It is thus a concretization of the individuation process, a memorial aere perennius » C.G. Jung
