How to Live the Divine in a Postmodern World

Jung believed that the activation of archetypal images in the collective unconscious served two purposes: to educate the ‘spirit of the age’ and to compensate the one-sidedness of the present situation. What is being activated in the collective unconscious of the postmodern era, and what does it tell us? In this presentation, Diane Croft will share archetypal imprints from her own numinous encounter with the ‘spirit of the depths’, as a woman living in the 21st century, and elucidate how these living images point toward a new era of consciousness aptly described by Jung: “The time has come when each must do his [her] own work of redemption. You should all become Christs.”

What They Saw in the Vessel: Making Sense of the “Nonsense” of Alchemy

Jung abruptly stopped work on the Red Book to pursue alchemy, which he saw as a mirror image of the individuation process. “The experiences of the alchemists were, in a sense, my experiences, and their world was my world,” he wrote in Psychology and Alchemy. What was it that he saw? What the alchemists called the Philosopher’s Stone, Jung thought of as the Self. In this presentation, Diane Croft will show how she got “cooked” in the alchemical vessel in the same way the alchemists described the transformative process centuries ago. She will bring life and currency to a psychological process that is not about changing a person into someone else; it’s about bringing something out in a person that has been there all along.”

Journey to the Center of the Psyche: A Direct Experience

Based on an encounter with a “wholly other force within,” this lecture will describe a descent into the deeper layers of the primordial unconscious. For three years, Croft was pulled into the sacred temenos at the center of the psyche and captured the poetic voice she heard there. It took several decades to decipher its meaning. Her presentation will vividly demonstrate the dynamic relationship between the ego-driven personality and the greater collective psyche.

"Having never met Diane Croft before her presentation at CAJP, I could not have anticipated the joyful gift she gave us. The spontaneous messages that came to her over three years were surprising enough, but even more compelling was the love and creative energy she devoted to the discovery of their meaning - using Jung's understanding of the Self as her guide. The warmth of Diane's personality and her spontaneous humor added to the fullness of the program. If I could use only one word to describe her presentation, it would be "profound."

James Scherer, Jungian analyst and program chairperson of CAJP

"Diane Croft’s presentation fully engaged the audience for almost two hours. People really responded to her down-to-earth but very informed style. She was able to relate her experience to many facets of Jungian theory because she had experienced it from the inside out. Her honest responses to questions and comments from the audience created an atmosphere of sincerity and safety. It was a memorable evening for us, and I highly recommend her program." 

Erica Lorentz, Jungian analyst (IAAP) and president of the Jung Association of Western MA

“Diane Croft’s two-hour presentation is one of the finest ever given at our Tools of Individuation series. Her cogent and extraordinarily meaningful account of a personal confrontation with the unconscious was illuminating. It provoked considerable discussion and reflection at the Maine Jung Center in the weeks and months that followed. Highly recommended.”
