Room 2Q49 Frenchay


Examples of synchronistic phenomena in psychotherapy will be offered to demonstrate the clinical utility of this approach. 

Further examples drawn from the history of culture where artists or artisans represented profound knowledge of highly complex natural phenomena well ahead of any scientific understanding will be used as evidence of the reality of psychoid apprehension. 

The evidence will be combined to introduce the audience to the psychoid imagination.

There will be plenty of time for questions and audience interaction at the end so we can wrestle, together as a community of interested people (students, academics, practitioners, artists, and the general public), with these intuitive yet complex ideas.

Course Director

Dr Miltos Hadjiosif


This public lecture will begin with a brief history of the origins and development of two key Jungian concepts: synchronicity and the psychoid archetype.

Complexity and field theories will then be applied to provide a 21st century re-visioning of these holistic, intuitive concepts from a systemic approach.
