David Treleaven, Falling in Love with Jung: Relationship as a Path to Individuation

(This presentation was a part of CIIS Multiversity February 2008.)

Carl Jung wrote passionately about individuation, a broadly defined process in which differentiated components gravitate toward an indivisible whole. In the fall of 2007, two East-West Psychology students documented their romantic relationship in the context of the individuation process, weaving Jung’s academic writings with conversational vignettes from their personal lives. Using documentary style footage, this 30 minute video presentation explores the integral relationship between sexuality, alchemy, and individuation.

David Treleaven is currently second year doctoral student in East-West Psychology at CIIS. While working as a therapist with male offenders in Vancouver, Canada, David served as an organizing member of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society and helped organize monthly meditation retreats for the Westcoast Dharma Society. He is currently working closely with Marina Romero, director of ESTEL Center of Personal Growth and School of Integral Studies in Barcelona, and co-creator of Holistic Sexuality, an integral approach to psychospiritual healing and transformation that works experientially with the body, sexuality, and nature.
