Individuation and Relationships: Jungian Thought and Couples Therapy, a lecture with Kathleen Wiley

  • Friday, November 18, 2022
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Zoom, Eastern Time



This program WILL BE recorded.

Intimate relationships provide a particularly rich container for discovering the unknown parts of our psyche. We’ll explore how Jung’s concepts, including complex theory, open up understanding of a couple’s dynamics as partners confront themselves in the other. Jung says, “Wholeness is the product of an intrapsychic process that depends essentially on the relation of one individual to another.”  Individuation and healthy relationships go together. We’ll reflect on what this means with respect to the unconscious.

Kathleen Wiley, MHDL, is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and diplomate Jungian Analyst in private practice in Davidson, N.C. She is a senior analyst and training analyst with the Memphis-Atlanta Jungian Seminar and on the faculty of The Haden Institute, a forum to educate others about the transformational gifts of spirituality and Jungian psychology.

Kathleen believes that individuation, incarnation, and the forging of the philosopher’s gold all refer to the process of embodying your essence. To this end, she offers “Essential Embodiment Practices” and “Fundamental Embodiment Processes” through her website, She also interweaves Jungian psychological concepts and Christian scriptures in her books, New Life:Meditations on the Birth of the Christ Within and New Life: Symbolic Meditations on the  Promise of Easter and Spring. Her work empowers people to live out of a conscious connection to God within the Self.
