In his book, Psychological Types, C. G. Jung defined eight types of consciousness: introverted intuition, extraverted intuition, introverted sensation, extraverted sensation, introverted feeling, extraverted feeling, introverted thinking, and extraverted thinking. In analyzing individuals, however, he normally referred to only four types of consciousness, speaking of the superior, auxiliary, tertiary, and inferior functions of consciousness. By looking at the shadow, analyst John Beebe is able to answer the question: Where are the other four kinds of consciousness in each of us? Using clips from classic films, Dr. Beebe will demonstrate that the shadow expresses itself through four archetypes, each of which is associated with one of Jung’s eight types of consciousness according to our individual psychological type profile.

We are happy to announce that we are starting our dream discussion group from Oct this year for our clinical and associate members, under the guidance by our host Dr. Teresa Chan.
Jung considered the dream as the avenue to the unconscious. For those who have attended Prof. Brian Feldman's Dreams Seminar we know that to understand a dream, we have to identify the psychological place, the plot , the turning point of the dream and the possibility of a resolution.
However how to proceed from there? Perhaps you are, just like me, find it quite clueless when it comes to our clients' dreams but very hope that we can step into this avenue to his/her unconscious mind as an important part of the therapy. Or, you might already be doing a lot of dream work with your clients but think it would be a good idea to have a platform to share your thoughts and knowledge, as well as learning through the discussion. No matter at what stage of training you are in your participation in our group is more than welcomed.
