Psychic Birth and Rebirth through Analysis

“The neurosis is as a rule a pathological, one-sided development of the personality, the imperceptible beginnings of which can be traced back almost indefinitely into the earliest years of childhood. Only a very arbitrary judgment can say where the neurosis actually begins. If we were to relegate the determining cause as far back as the patient’s prenatal life, thus involving the physical and psychic disposition of the parents at the time of conception and pregnancy—a view that seems not at all improbable in certain cases—such an attitude would be more justifiable than the arbitrary selection of a definite point of neurotic origin in the individual life of the patient” (Jung, CW 16, 257-258).

“The whole life of the individual is nothing but the process of giving birth to himself; indeed, we should be fully born when we die.” Erich Fromm

Lecture: Birth and rebirth are powerful themes that can shape a person’s development within analysis at any age and stage of life. They contain timeless and profound archetypal and developmental meanings that stimulate our development and relationship to the Self. This lecture will focus on ideas regarding birth and rebirth, and their expression in analysis. The ways that analysis can give birth to the self will come to life through imagery, session dialogue, and Dr. Marlo’s inner experience in her work with a patient who experienced psychic birth through analysis.

Workshop: Birth of the Self How can analysis birth the self? We will explore this question by illuminating ideas about birth. Nascent stirrings of the Self often initiate the labor of analytic work, which can be influenced by our life stories, including our birth story.

Birth is a topic that is pregnant with meaning. It can be a signifier of the un-symbolized, unimagined, and un-experienced. It can manifest as a regressive, developmental experience, suffused with body or implicit memory. Birth can also act as a symbol or metaphor, and be expressed as a second birth or rebirth. Finally, it may emerge in the efflorescence of self-development involving a more related connection to the Self–a precursor to more complete development, heralding transformations in being and spirit.

These ideas come to life through Dr. Marlo’s presentation of an emergent process of birth, development, and transformation from over 15 years of analysis with a woman who began analysis dissociated from her self/Self.

Using evocative imagery, session dialogue, and Dr. Marlo’s inner experience, this workshop intimately examines what happens behind the consulting room door, allowing participants to reflect on their experience in analysis and examine the practice of analysis and its transformative potential.
