Irish Society of Jungian Analysts

in conjunction with the Irish Analytical Psychology Association
Presents live on Zoom

Event 1 - Thursday, 28th October 2021: 8.00pm to 9.00pm 


Nancy van den Berg-Cook, Ph.D., Psy.D

The tragedy of the COVID-19 pandemic has generated widespread fear and shock, emotions which can cause highly polarized, good-versus-evil thinking. Nancy suggests that this polarization has driven our myth-making psyches to construct an archetypal narrative that the human race is a victim of the Evil Coronavirus. If so, what qualities of the virus evince these archetypes of evil and how are these archetypes personified in folk tales, fairy tales, and especially in our modern culture?

Nancy will share her personal explorations that are based on an interconnection of psyche-soma and combine her expertise in biochemistry with her years of experience as Jungian analyst.

Nancy van den Berg-Cook is a Jungian analyst and is a member of the International Association for Analytical Psychology. She was a biochemist researcher in nutrition and metabolism (PhD University of California Berkeley). Nancy has worked for more than 20 years in her private practice in the Netherlands, served 7 years as president of the Netherlands Association for Analytical Psychology and recently began presenting and writing about her investigation into psyche-body connections at the level of biochemistry.

EVENT 2 - Thursday, 25th November 2021: 8.00pm to 9.00pm  


Mathew Mather, PhD

Mathew Mather is a graduate of the University of Essex, where he specialised in Jung and Alchemy. He is the course director of the Certificate in Jungian Psychology with Art Therapy and the postgraduate MA in Art, Psyche and the Creative Imagination. Mathew regularly presents at international conferences and is a guest lecturer at ISAP, Zurich.

Mathew will recount and elaborate Jung’s scarab synchronicity. This includes an amplification of mythic significances by sharing images from ancient Egyptian mythology. In the spirit of ‘sticking to the image’, he will then elaborate a unique perspective by exploring the colour ‘green-gold’ for Jung, in terms of the notion of the anima mundi. As we shall witness, a perspective emerges in that Jung’s ‘green-gold scarab’ can be considered a symbol of pivotal significance for his life-myth, aligned with his belief in the immanent Turning of an Age. Resonances to our times, with reference especially to deep ecology, will also be touched on.
