A lecture by Dr Gottfried Heuer on Tues February 16th. 2016 on The Nature of Burn-Out and the Burn-Out of Nature

The Nature of Burn-Out and the Burn-Out of Nature: The Sloth and the Chickadee.  Socio-Psychological, Ecological, Sacral-Political and Ethical Implications. Jungian & Alchemical Perspectives.

Dr. Heuer writes “Introducing burn-out as a form of individual self-neglect, I make a link to current ecological concerns by drawing parallels between one of the most important European alchemist-healers of the past, Paracelsus, and, moving to recent modern times, Wilhelm Reich. I am particularly concerned with the later period of his work, and I want to show that he can not only be seen as continuing the alchemist traditions, but should also be respected as the first eco-psychologist. I shall tease out the spiritual implications of these ideas, towards a re-sacralisation of analysis and radical (eco-) politics, to end with suggestions towards facing the present dilemma of individual, collective and global burn-out in presenting the concept of ‘radical hope’ ”.

Dr. Gottfried M. Heuer,  is a Jungian Training psychoanalyst and supervisor and a Neo-Reichian body-psychotherapist.  He has over 35 years of clinical practice in West-London.  He is also an independent scholar with more than 70 papers published in the major analytic journals; his books include 10 congress proceedings for the International Otto Gross Society, Sacral Revolutions, and Sexual Revolutions (both Routledge, 2010/-11); he is also a published graphic artist, photographer, sculptor and poet.
