Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D.

In his State of the Union Address, President Obama signaled his interest in launching a renewed collective effort to explore the nature of the human brain. The more we learn about how the brain functions as a whole, the more we will learn about the psychological dimensions of religion.

Post-Katrina Jungian Jambalaya

My dreams at night were about Destrehan and New Orleans. School friends from the 1980s were mixed together with my seminary studies, with my church, and with my family in 2005-2006. It was like time ceased to exist and everything and everybody were all stirred in together in one big kettle.

While David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method concentrates on Jung's relationship with Sabina Spielrein, Ken Wydro's Secrets, introduces a later patient/lover, Toni Wolff.

Having bad dreams from time to time is a perfectly normal part of child development. Nightmares can occur whenever a person encounters something new, strange, startling, or threatening in waking life.

Big Dreams in Childhood: 'The Richest Jewels in the Treasure House of Psychic Experience'

Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D. | Posted 04.27.2013 | Parents
Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D.

At least once or twice in life, often in childhood, most people have a dream that strikes them with unusual power and intensity, a dream so realistic and otherworldly that it burns a lasting impression into their memory.

Why Jung Is Important

Gary Lachman | Posted 04.27.2013 | Religion
Gary Lachman

More than anyone else in the 20th century, the psychologist is responsible for our wide interest in what we can call "inner directed spirituality." He saw the unconscious mind as a hidden treasure, not a basement or cellar where we hide away everything about ourselves we'd rather not face.

Cosmopolis on DVD & On-Screen, Tonight @ Museum of The Moving Image

Michael Vazquez

As part of their "Best of 2012" series, the good folks at MOMI are screening David Cronenberg's film adaptation of the great Don Delilo's 2000 novel, Cosmopolis. Both are worth your time. Note to purists: skip this review, the film, and read the book first.

Newtown: A Crisis of Faith

But my question remains: is it ever even possible to feel and experience a sense of utter and absolute safety in this life in the very same breath that we inhale the daily news?

Ah, The Dreams of Life -- And The Fiscal Cliff

Congress threatens the "fiscal cliff." Violence, bloodshed, hatred and disregard for the planet threatens the future of humanity. We have some big, big problems we're not handling so well. Today, though, I'm going to relax.

Getting Into the Holiday Spirit: Cultivate Rivalries With Other Intellectuals

A bitter rivalry is good for the mind, as it drives opponents to sharpen their arguments to a fine rhetorical point, while serving as great entertainment for outside observers.

Dreams: Weathervane of the Soul

Richard Gaudreau

There is no "one size fits all" answer to what a dream means despite the pat answers offered by supermarket tabloids. While dreams may be harbingers of the future or echoes of the past, I've learned the triggering event is always something in the present.

The Day I Finally Understood David Cronenberg

However much I'd thought it would be neat to delve into mysticism and spirituality with David Cronenberg, it was just as enlightening to hear how he lives without them.

Buddhism And The Unconscious

Recent neurological studies have been exploring Jung's insight, leading to discoveries that have many important implications, including how we might understand traditional Buddhist teachings today.

Were Angels In The Bible Lucid Dreams?

Lucid dreams, while clearly owing a lot to the imagination, often contain a spiritual element which is not merely "imaginary."

Drawing the Great Work: Ann McCoy's (R)evolutionary "Ovum Philosophorum"

Lisa Paul Streitfeld | Posted 06.30.2012 | Arts
Lisa Paul Streitfeld

The patriarch is not only external but exists inside of all of us. Until we can transmute the inner authority that denies quantum leaps generated by multiple expanding consciousness, we cannot embody a new cyclical paradigm. The artist shows us the way.

Don Draper's fever dream on Sunday night's episode of Mad Men demonstrates just how deeply the show will go to reveal the psychological void of its damaged lead character.

Anyone who has traveled the rocky roads of self-transformation can tell you that embarking on a journey of discovery is not for the faint at heart. It requires a warrior's heart and a fierce determination to conquer the unknown.

Storied Nature Of Human Nature

By my rough estimation, we spend perhaps 50 percent or more of our waking hours in storytelling. Humans make stories but, in some sense, we are also made by our stories.

God Is One: A Kabbalistic Explanation

Rabbi Michael M. Cohen

If life were like a movie and we were able to slow it down we would see the blank spaces between each frame, between each moment, between each change. Kabbalah is the system where we try to see those spaces.

While hugely charismatic, Fassbender does not trade on personality, presenting an Everyman who resonates with the public and stays recognizable from film to film. Think George Clooney and Tom Hanks.
