In this seminar, I shall sketch a story of my personal experience of a synchronistic event that started an unconscious journey toward a vocation that was unknown to the conscious mind and was forgotten for 45 years. At that time, a major life crisis made this hidden preoccupation conscious, and the ego had to embrace it, moving toward a self-fulfilling prophecy of a fiction writer. This personal story is an interesting example of how the Self not only dictates someone but determines the path of the inevitable journey that helps the ego to fulfill its destiny. Time permitting, the participants will have an opportunity to do short exercises to evoke their creative muse, hopefully, inspired by the presentation.

Manisha Roy, Ph.D, I.A.A.P., was born in the northeastern border of India in a small town on the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. She was trained as a geographer and psychological anthropologist at the Universities of Calcutta, Chicao, and California and finally as a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich, Switzerland, where she also taught anthropology at Zurich University for eight years. Dr. Roy has been at the faculty of the C.G. Jung Institute of New England for 40 years and has a private practice in Cambridge, MA. She has lectured all over the world and published extensively. In addition to 40 articles, her 12 books include two novels, two short story collections, three memoirs, two non-fiction and three co-edited anthologies. She writes in two languages.
