Seminars: Archetypal Patterns in Fairy Tales 
2015/2016, 2014/2015- Analyst Training Program
These seminars explore archetypal patterns in fairy tales with particular attention to how we might see or experience these patterns in clients in clinical practice.  

Lecture: Aspects of the Masculine
2013/2014- Analyst Training Program and CG Jung Foundation
We often assume a common understanding of the term “the masculine” yet it is a notion based in gender that suggests a range of qualities and can be related to many archetypes. To better understand our assumptions and enhance our appreciation of the topic we will follow highlights from Jung’s Collected Works through an abundance of writing about men a generation ago to the present day. This discussion will reinforce the importance of finding meaningful connection to “the masculine” through deeper exploration of our own symbolic material.

Seminar: Iron Hans
2013/2014- Analyst Training Program and CG Jung Foundation
This seminar will focus on a symbolic interpretation of Grimm’s tale Iron Hans as we explore the topic of masculinity. Reference will be made to Robert Bly’s Iron John: A Book About Men.

Seminar: Tales of Faithfulness and Unfaithfulness
2012/2013-Analyst Training Program, 2012- CG Jung Foundation
This seminar will explore three fairy tales and what they have to tell us about the process of individuation – “Faithful Ferdinand and Unfaithful Ferdinand”, “Faithful Johannes,” and “The Faithful Animals.” We will pay particular attention to the notions of faithfulness and unfaithfulness and the perspective it offers for the inner and outer lives of individuals.

Seminar: The Satyr
2010/2011-CG Jung Foundation
This seminar explores the symbolism of the satyr using text and images.

Lecture: Pygmalion: A Study in Individuation
2009/2010- Analyst Training Program and CG Jung Foundation
The Pygmalion myth is easily recalled in this one-sentence synopsis: Pygmalion sculpts a statue, falls in love with it, and Venus brings the statue to life. The moment of transformation has been a favourite subject in painting and sculpture since the Renaissance. A close reading of the myth reveals less examined details and it is here that an individual who suffers disillusionment with relationships might discover something closer to his/her own experience. This lecture and discussion will consider the Pygmalion myth as told by Ovid, trace the theme to more contemporary narratives, and propose a description of a ‘Pygmalion complex.’ A symbolic interpretation of the myth provides clues toward understanding how individuals living a Pygmalion-like story might gain new perspective and begin to work through their seemingly immovable relationship issues.
