  • Jung taught that the psyche consists of various systems including the personal unconsciouswith its complexes and a collective unconscious with its archetypes. Jung's theory of a personal unconscious is quite similar to Freud’s creation of a region containing a person's repressed, forgotten or ignored experiences. However, Jung considered the personal unconscious to be a "more or less superficial layer of the unconscious." Within the personal unconscious are what he called "feeling-toned complexes." He said that "they constitute the personal and private side of psychic life.” These are feelings and perceptions organized around significant persons or events in the person's life. Jung believed that there was a deeper and more significant layer of the unconscious, which he called the collective unconscious, with what he identified as archetypes, which he believed were innate, unconscious, and generally universal. Jung's collective unconscious has been described as a "storehouse of latent memory traces inherited from man's ancestral past, a past that includes not only the racial history of man as a separate species but his pre-human or animal ancestry as well.” Therefore, Jung's theory incorporates Darwin's theory of evolution as well as ancient mythology. Jung taught that this collective unconscious is shared by all people and is therefore universal. However, since it is unconscious, not all people are able to tap into it. Jung saw the collective unconscious as the foundational structure of personality on which the personal unconscious and the ego are built. Because he believed that the foundations of personality are ancestral and universal, he studied religions, mythology, rituals, symbols, dreams and visions.
  • Does not seek power with others. Seeks only to express the intent of the energy of the Universe as expressed in personal acts of presence, art, movement, love--guardianship. Life and death are approached with an attitude of non-attachment and joy. The core motivation is Service: to the Universe, to others, to life. Body and mind function as an integrated system. Multiple intelligences and expanded senses are fully developed. Learning and work are both expressed as play. Intention forms the core of all action. Anarchistic.

We “normalize” irrational data either by organizing it to fit a made-up narrative or by ignoring it altogether. made- NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 5

    9. 9. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Welcome to your brain... • Brain Regions and functions: – Frontal lobe - self-control, judgment, emotional regulation; restructured in teen years – Parietal lobes - integrate auditory, visual, and tactile signals; immature until age 16 – Occipital lobe - the visual processing centre – Temporal lobes - emotional maturity; still developing after age 16 – Cerebellum - motor control. It may also be involved in some cognitive functions such as attention and language, and in regulating fear and pleasure responses, – Corpus callosum — connects the left and right cerebral hemispheres - intelligence, consciousness and self-awareness; reaches full maturity in 20’s – Amygdala(e) - almond-shaped groups of nuclei located deep within the medial temporal lobes of the brain in complex vertebrates, including humans. Shown in research to perform a primary role in the processing and memory of emotional reactions. Fight, Flight, Freeze function – Hippocampus - consolidation of information from short- term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 9
    10. 10. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Pruning and tuning...The brain is still developing during the teen years Dr. Jay Giedd of the NIMH has reported that brain “maturation does not stop at “maturation age 10, but continues into the teen years and even into the 20’s. What is most surprising is that you get a second wave of overproduction of gray matter, something that was thought to happen only in the first 18 months of life (Begley, 2000).”...Following...Following the overproduction of gray matter, the brain undergoes a process called “pruning” where connections among neurons in the brain that are not used wither away, while those that are used stay—the “use it or lose it” principle. stay—...It is thought that this pruning process makes the brain more efficient by strengthening the connections that are used most often, and eliminating the clutter of those that are not used at all.

    11. 11. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 White... The new Grey... Time-lapse MRI images of human-brain development between ages five and 20 show the growth and then gradual loss of gray matter, which consists of cells That process information. (Red areas contain more gray matter, blue areas less.) Paradoxically, the thinning of gray matter that starts around puberty corresponds to increasing cognitive abilities. This probably Reflects improved neural organization, as the brain pares redundant connections and benefits from increases in the white matter that helps brain cells communicate. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 11
    12. 12. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Nerve Insulation...[in teenagers]...the frontal lobes — are not fully connected.Its the part of the brain that says: Is this a good idea? What is the consequence of this action?’ Its not that they dont have a frontal lobe. And they can use it. But theyre going to access it more slowly.Thats because the nerve cells that connect teenagers frontal lobes with the rest of their brains are sluggish. Teenagers dont have as much of the fatty coating called myelin, or "white matter," that adults have in this areaarea.Think of it as insulation on an electrical wire. Nerves need myelin for nerve signals to flow freely. Spotty or thin myelin leads to inefficient communication between one part of the brain and another...Human and animal studies, have shown that the brain grows and changes continually in young people—and that it is only about 80 percent developed in people— adolescents. The largest part, the cortex, is divided into lobes that mature from back to front. The last section to connect is the frontal lobe, responsible for cognitive processes such as reasoning, planning, and judgment. Normally this mental merger is not completed until somewhere between ages 25 and 30 30— much later than these two neurologists were taught in medical school. – Prof. Frances Jensen – Harvard University – Professor of Neurology - Expert on Epilepsy and Brain Development...

    15. 15. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 God Particle... Or God?“...In very simple terms, physicists have to breakstuff to find stuff. They get to use the scientific “If you don’t know me by now...principles of a 2 year old toddler and smashthings together to see what comes off… albeit ina much more ‘controlled’ environment.The ‘God Particle’, or ‘Higgs Boson’ as it isscientifically referred to, is a hypotheticalparticle which physicists believe gives atomicparticles, and as a result everything else, mass.Physicists across the globe are conductingexperiments to try and prove it’s existence.Right now, nobody knows why particles acquiremass, and that is a hole that has existed in thestandard model for 50 years...”(and if it has been a hole for 50 years then we canassume that the hole was there for time immemorial Then you’ll never, never, never,before that...

    22. 22. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Time to meet ‘Holon’... Hold on... What’s a Holon? Well... Pretty much everything is a Holon... (including YOU...!) Which is just as well really, as it is the building block of the Theory of Everything (ToE)The term ‘Holon’ was coined by Arthur Koestler in 1967, in his seminal book‘The Ghost in the Machine’...He defined a Holon as ...” something that is simultaneously a whole and apart”...One of the characteristics of Holons is that they arrange themselves into‘Holarchies’... NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 22
    23. 23. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 A ‘Holarchy’...Each Holon, at each level in the Holarchy is the sum of all the Holons beneathit in the Holarchy (that’s why Holarchies are different from Hierarchies) The Holons ‘Sub-atomic particles’ are constituents of the Holon ‘Atom’; The Holons ‘Atoms’ are constituent parts of the Holon ‘Molecule’; The Holons ‘Molecules’ are constituent parts of the Holon ‘Cells’... And so on... NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 23
    24. 24. Depth NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 A ‘Holarchy’... Span Holarchies are measured in terms of span and depth. The higher up the Holarchy you look, the greater the depth. As a general rule, the higher you go up the Holarchy, the smaller the span. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 24
    25. 25. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 A ‘Holarchy’... THESE CAN NO LONGER EXIST But the layers below would continue to exist Remove this layer...If you remove a layer of Holons in a Holarchy, all of the layers above it will cease to exist;but the reverse is not true.So, if you were to destroy all molecules in existence, then cells could not exist...But atoms could. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 25
    26. 26. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Other examples of Holarchies...

    27. 27. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012...”A significant feature of Koestlers concept of holarchy is that it is open ended both in themacrocosmic as well as in the microcosmic dimensions. This aspect of his theory has dimensions.several important implications. The holarchic system does not begin with strings or endwith the multiverse. Those are just the existing limits of the reach of the human mind in the multiverse.two dimensions at the present time. Those limits will be crossed later on because they donot encompass the whole of reality. ““Popper (Objective Knowledge) teaches that what the human mind knows and will everknow of truth at a given point of time and space is verisimilitude - something like truth, andthat the human mind will continue to get closer to reality but never reach it. In other words,the human quest for knowledge is an unending journey with innumerable grand sightsahead but with no possibility of reaching the journeys end. “The work of modern physicists designed to discover the theory of everything (TOE) isreaching deep into the microcosm under the assumption that the macrocosm is eventuallymade of the microcosm. ..” NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 27

    33. 33. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Individuation• Jung believed that a human being is inwardly whole, but that most of us have lost touch withimportant parts of our selves.• Through listening to the messages of our dreams and waking imagination, we can contact andreintegrate our different parts.• The goal of life is individuation, the process of coming to know, giving expression to, andharmonising the various components of the psyche.• If we realise our uniqueness, we can undertake a process of individuation and tap into our true self.• Each human being has a specific nature and calling which is uniquely their own, and unless theseare fulfilled through a union of conscious and unconscious, the person can become sick.• Jung argued that the alchemical process was the transformation of the impuresoul (lead) to perfected soul (gold), and a metaphor for the individuation process. process. Individuation = Transformation = Alchemy NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 33
    34. 34. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Actualisation•Archetypes seek actualisation within the context of an individualsenvironment and determine the degree of individuation. Jung also used the individuation.terms "evocation" and "constellation" to explain the process of actualisation.•Thus for example, the mother archetype is actualised in the mind of the childby the evoking of innate anticipations of the maternal archetype when the childis in the proximity of a maternal figure who corresponds closely enough to itsarchetypal template. template.•This mother archetype is built into the personal unconscious of the child as amother complex. Complexes are functional units of the personal unconscious, in complex.the same way that archetypes are units for the collective unconscious. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 34

L8-Turquoise The colour of the oceans and Earth as viewed from space L7-Yellow Solar power and alternative technologies L6-Green Green politics, forests, and ecological consciousness L5-Orange Radiating energy of steel in an industrial furnace L4-Blue The sky, the heavens, and the “true blue” believer L3-Red Hot blooded emotions and the “fire in your eyes” L2-Purple The royal colour of tribal chiefs and monarchs L1-Beige Savanna grasslands NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 37
    38. 38. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 1 L1-Beige Savanna grasslandsStage One: Survivor/Transitional-ObjectConsciously, the first stage consists of surviving, the psychological base ofexistence.Whether or not adult humans ever had this as their highest stage, eventoday infants who have not yet formed a trusting bond with their caregiversare principally engaged in mere survival.Since this stage gives no opportunity to the social instinct, the latter isrepressed to the unconscious, from whence it may gradually emerge inattachment to some personified object, (e.g., a favourite cuddly toy). NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 38
    39. 39. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 2 L2-Purple The royal colour of tribal chiefs and monarchsStage Two: Truster / TricksterThis stage arises when fantasy proves so inadequate that individualsseek real families/tribes, for which fantasies have partly prepared themby letting them practice with extensions of themselves.Stage Two requires trust, the sine qua non of tribal life, dependent onhaving sufficient faith in its culture to acquire a language, mythology, andother normative patterns.Graves’s phrase for this stage was “Sacrifice Self Now for the Tribe….”. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 39
    40. 40. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 3 L3-Red Hot blooded emotions and the “fire in your eyes”Stage Three: Unscrupulous Competitor/HeroWhile developing from infancy to early childhood, individuals usually evolve fromtrustingly basking in the family or tribe (Stage Two) to competing with one anotherfor attention and with their parents for authority (Stage Three).In societies, Stage Three arrives when internal or external problems cause what wasa tribe to learn the military techniques to conquer its neighbours and the politicalones to turn its temporary war chief into a permanent monarch (with a peckingorder of lesser winners beneath him or her).Graves phrased Stage Three: “Express self now, the hell with others.” Since healthymaturation constantly adds skills, Stage Three should retain caring for kin (learnedat Stage Two), but this places no restraint on exploitation of strangers; and if theentrant into Stage Three comes from a dysfunctional family or tribe, even kinshipties may be ineffective. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 40
    41. 41. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 4 L4-Blue The sky, the heavens, and the “true blue” believerStage Four: the Virtuous/the ShadowVery young children simply trust that what they are told is right (Stage Two) andslightly older ones think that they only have to obey people who are bigger,stronger, and less sensitive than they are (the conscious side of Stage Three).According to Piaget, between five and seven, children develop elementary desire toplay with logical organization and from twelve on they may amplify this into matureskills with abstractions.Opportunities to develop organizational skills nonetheless depend on one’s culture.Tribes (Stage Two) have no openings for accountants (Stage Four). Eventually,however, a large kingdom needs a bureaucracy of educated clerks (at Stage Four) toadminister and promulgate the rules.At Stage Four, actions are either correct or incorrect (not somewhere in between). NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 41
    42. 42. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 5 L5-Orange Radiating energy of steel in an industrial furnaceStage Five: Materialistic Analyst of Things/Anim(a/us)This stage recognizes that there are so many exceptions to the rules ofStage Four that some principles must be demoted to superstitions, whilescience yields new ones, fostering technology and a vast economicinfrastructure.Before Stage-Five can dominate a society, four must have producedsufficient peace and order for commerce so that money and other materialrewards start to be the measure of everything.Examples of its analysis include the industrial division of labour and thescientific method itself. This stage expands mental horizons, but socialaffections become obscured in the vast bookkeeping of physical details. NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 42
    43. 43. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 6 L6-Green Green politics, forests, and ecological consciousnessStage Six: Empathizer with Every Person/Wise OneThis stage translates the previous appreciation of life into an ecologicalempathy with every being.People dissatisfied with Stage Five’s mere accumulation instead cultivateempathy, generating social structures ranging from liberal government tosecular charities (e.g. Friends of the Earth).At Stage Six, a sympathetic effort to befriend each entity on his, her, or itsown terms replaces dogma. Stage Six’s insistence on “political correctness”(i.e. politely presupposing universal equality) condemns any effort toclassify people—such as Graves’s system itself (a product of Stage Seven). NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 43
    44. 44. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 7 L7-Yellow Solar power and alternative technologiesStage Seven: Distancer /SelfThe stages themselves become evermore inclusive through Stage Seven, which tries tocomprehend life in all its paradoxes, not just the occasional intuitions that satisfied Stage Six. Someinstitutions (e.g. the ashrams of India, monasteries of ancient China, and government think tanks)permit people to distance themselves from the preoccupations of the lower-numbered stages.For many people, a final state (often in old age) is to retire from the present squabble and look atthe larger picture—how all the turmoil fits together. If they have reached Stage Seven, this is not asingle materialistic analysis (Stage Five) but a synthesis of many processes combined with theempathy mastered at Stage Six and everything else that has been learned along the way.The conscious mind, however, flounders in such complexity. Science supplements human brainswith computers yet even so finds much of the world disconcertingly unpredictable.Graves provided a vague description : “Express Self Now, but not at the expense of Others or theWorld, so that Life May Continue.” NLP Dorset Forum - Thursday May 31st 2012 44
    45. 45. NLP Dorset Forum – May 31, 2012 Level 8 The colour of the oceans and Earth as viewed from L8-Turquoise spaceStage Eight and beyond....Although Graves never had clinical evidence for any stage above seven, hespeculated that there might be an infinite number of higher stages and he guessedthat the eighth would be the “global village” predicted by McLuhan.This is simply to say that Graves’s system—where odd-numbered stages are self-expressive and even-numbered ones social—suggests that stage eight might itselfform a community (if it ever came into existence).As far as Graves’s clinical evidence extended, however, it agreed with Jung’s: sevenstages in the human condition up to their time.
