Although many books have been written about the psychology of violence (as I learned during my days directing a program for court-referred perpetrators), Dr. The same dynamic of denial applies to entire nationsa€”and goes far toward explaining why the a€?nicesta€? and most restrained people sometimes pick up a gun. Listening to the Rhino deals not just with outwardly expressed violence, however, but with confronting and transforming archetypal violence (as imaged by the dream figure of the Rhino) manifesting from within the psyche.
Following up on Jung's advice to translate emotions into images, Dallett writes about how a symptom or an illness, whether somatic or psychogenic (or both), represents an attempt at incarnation imparted by a spiritual force badly in need of translation from a literal source of suffering into an actively lived symbolic work. Active imagination furnishes a primary Jungian tool for this kind of deep work, but as Dallett reminds the reader, Marie-Louise von Franz always insisted on the importance of completing at least these four steps: setting the ego aside, tending the images, reacting to the images, and putting the results to work in life (italics added). This belief may well be a candidate for what Dallett identifies in another context as a pathological identification with spirit: what Jung identified as inflation. In the chapter a€?Sedating the Savage,a€? Dallett presents many examples of how psychotropic medication represses unpleasant emotions while supporting artificial idealized states of happiness and surface contentment. While the matter of healing is a major theme of this book, the other is violence, and Dalletta€™s point here is that when violence is repressed it puts the individual and collective into grave peril. Dallett returns our attention to the potency of active imagination as a tool to activate the psychea€™s potential for literal physical healing as well as psychological wholeness.
On the cover is a picture of a rhinoceros with two birds perched on its back, a classic example of a mutually beneficial biological symbiosis.
Jungians are often the last bulwark in todaya€™s field of mental health practitioners, who remember the unavoidable reality and necessity of darkness and violence.
We must develop an ego that is strong enough to contain the violent side of human nature, Dallett suggests, in order to live up to a€?what Jung saw as the millennial task (of) carrying the divine opposites of good and evil within the individuala€? (p.87). To contain the worst kinds of violence, Dallett suggests that we find a way to give expression to our destructive impulses without causing too much harm.
The gist of Dalletta€™s argument, however, points towards incorporating more of the almost lost Jungian technique of Active Imagination.
The Rhino did not simply show up to heal the dreamer, but to inform her that she was to serve him. In Pat Britta€™s own words a€?During my early association with The Rhino, I could tell he wanted something of me, but I did not know what.
In the alchemical laboratory of human life we are also mirrors for transformations on a larger scale, the transformation of the spirit in nature. Dallett reminds us that one-sidedness is one of our greatest dangers, be it the lopsided, misunderstood spirituality that denies the spiritual reality of violence or the overly rational slant of todaya€™s scientific community. We read in some detail here about the work of Jungian analysis, with special emphasis on active imagination, a method for bringing unknown parts of oneself into awareness and into connection with onea€™s everyday personality. Seamlessly, the book then turns to two major topics of special concern in todaya€™s world: the nature of violence and the use of psychotropic drugs.
While this discussion of violence focuses on the psychic sources of explosive violence, another section, on the use of psychotropic drugs, looks at contemporary uses of prescription drugs to damp down or cover up difficult, painful, unwelcome emotions (and violence). What we have in this small book is the fruit of a penetrating mind nourished by long experience of the psyche, and now offering us the essence of that experience, fueled by passionate concern over issues of todaya€™s world.
Why is there so much violence around us - shootings in colleges, bullying in schoolyards, violent movies in theatres, graffiti in public spaces, news on television? Janet Dallett is a Jungian analyst in her seventies, now living in Port Townsend, Washington. Britt had hundreds of Rhino dreams in the course of her nine-year analysis with Dallettt, which always focused on the meaning of his latest appearance. Britt truly grasped the Rhino, writing poetry about him, painting his picture, and even casting him in bronze so he could stand in her front hall, and her damaged heart healed. Dallett attributes Britta€™s healing to her commitment to the Rhino, a voice for what Jung calls the Self, the God within. We are doing to the wild part of our psyche what we have done to the wild parts of the earth. The Oxford English Concise Dictionary (OECD) defines Meander (verb) as being a€?to wander aimlesslya€? or (noun) as a€?a circuitous journeya€?.
The Braemar is small for a cruise ship by modern standards, at only 640 feet LOA and 950 passengers (350 crew).
Our itinerary took us from Barbados to Curacao, Aruba, Jamaica, Mexico (x2), Havana Cuba, Grand Cayman Island, and back to Jamaica. The other pleasant thing on this trip was that the shipa€™s doctor, one Dr Bob Jones, turned out to be a very old school friend of mine who I had not seen for 52 years.
I gather the supper held on 18th February with Adam and Mary Reay at the helm went well with 83 people attending.
Also at the supper we presented the John Hyatt trophy for the photo getting the most votes in the annual photo competition. After the presentations, Neil Eccles gave us an excellent talk about his and Brona€™s experiences with keeping their boat, Cutaway, on the West Coast of France.
The next and final supper before the summer is on Friday 15th April when Richard Pierpoint will be the after supper speaker talking about Flexisail, his yacht-share scheme (see the linked advertisement on the Social page of the LTSC Web site).
I have several a€?computersa€? at home, but the iPad has very rapidly become my computing device of choice for everything from downloading and reading The Times every day (much cheaper than the paper edition!) to e-mailing and web-surfing. Notice how carefully I have avoided all mention of getting the chute wrapped around the forestay and tearing it on the now defunct (splash) steaming light in the middle week? This montha€™s blast shows Maureen Harris and Pat Stacey discussing what to do with Ray Collier who was somewhat comatose after a particularly good Meandering lunch on board John and Pat Staceya€™s always hospitable Mixit. Hey, its Spring!A  The 1st of March has come and gone, and according to the UK Met Office the 1st of March is the start of that most glorious time of year, Spring. I have several a€?computersa€? at home, but the iPad has very rapidly become my computing device of choice for everything from downloading and reading The Times every day (much cheaper than the paper edition!) to e-mailing and web-surfing.A  Apple has just bought out a new iPad 2, lighter and with front and rear cameras for video phoning etc, but I shall be content with just the Operating System upgrade for a while yet.
The recent presidential debates have not dealt with in any depth the most important long-term issue facing the country – education.
The terrible battle in Wisconsin over teachers’ collective bargaining rights, and of the teachers’ strike in Chicago over a host of issues, prominently, seniority issues, are symptoms of our concerns, but they are not focused on what’s wrong. The results should have been embarrassing for the United States, although I’d guess that very few in this country paid any attention.
Shanghai swept to first place by far in all three exams, with Finland, South Korea and Singapore coming in second in science, reading and math, respectively. When a student enters high school and subsequently drops out, there is a terrible waste of a life unfulfilled and public expense in educating that person.
According the US Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 3.7 million job openings available as of July 2012*. I believe it’s fair to say that schools of education largely teach the technology of education, that is they teach one how to teach.
David McCullough, perhaps our greatest living historian was just interviewed on CBS’ 60 Minutes. President Bill Clinton recently pointed out that people who have an ideology tend to bend the facts to fit their ideology instead of seeking the truth.
There are and always have been any number of excellent public and private schools in the United States. Many states have dropped out of the program, citing either financial exigencies, a lack of cost-effectiveness, or both. Everyone knows that some schools are truly excellent, with great teachers, enthusiastic and hard-working students, and excellent outcomes.
Online courses such as Kahn Academy and many others allow students to learn at their own pace, be it faster or slower. Finally I want to spend some time discussing why I believe science should form the basis of all education. So it makes sense to build on this natural passion for understanding in order to construct a formal education. Let me tell you about the best program I’ve seen yet, one that I was intimately involved with at one time (I was chairman of its Advisory Board for several years). The SSEC has now implemented K-12 programs in 1,200 school districts in the United States affecting some 30% of all students. After the war in Vietnam a number of boat people from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia started arriving at our shores.
This attracted the attention of a group of researchers at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor who conducted a large study over a number of years to find out how they did it. Note that “family values” as used here are different from those political code words in common use currently in the US. On the GPA’s 79% of the children earned A’s or B’s in their local schools, and on the state-wide math tests 85% earned A’s or B’s.
Maybe there’s something here that explains how the Vietnamese were able to defeat not only the French imperialists but also the world’s greatest war machine, the USA. Those who believe in American Exceptionalism should look deeply into the eyes of these children. 2.The quality of our primary and secondary education has declined in comparison to that of many other countries.
IN EGYPT AND TUNISIA, ORDINARY CITIZENS HAVE TOPPLED AUTOCRATS; ELSEWHERE IN THE ARAB WORLD, they still battle dictators, armed with little more than their belief in freedom, human rights, and democracy.
As the British scientist Jacob Bronowski observed more than half a century ago, the enterprise of science requires the adoption of certain values that are adhered to by its practitioners with exceptional rigor. Science advances by overthrowing an existing paradigm, or at least substantially expanding or modifying it. This constant renewal and advancement of our scientific understanding is a central feature of the scientific enterprise. The new Arab societies we are building must be open pluralistic societies that are producers of knowledge and new opportunities. I wanted to comment on your folio and call your attention to an opinion by Linda Greenhouse in the NY Times today.
On your education manifesto, I agree with Dodie's comment about the way schools are funded in this country. I’m working on my next offering that deals with how we might actually bring about a renaissance in the American family within a generation or at most, two. This article by Frederick Hess on school choice in ‘National Affairs’ has just come in, with an extensive analysis of why charter schools are a disappointment.
Dallett's clearly and concisely written book offers thoughtful and sometimes surprising reflections, case anecdotes, and scholarly musings on violence as a spiritual problem.
It is easy for introverts in particular to skip the final step, but doing so severs inner from outer, contemplation from action.
James Hillman has presented a similar critique, which can be summed up by the dictum: Silence the symptom and lose the soul. It is tiresome to be reminded that Jung believed active imagination to be the sine qua non of coming to terms with the unconscious.
Oxpeckers or a€?tick birdsa€? sit on top of the rhino eating insects and noisily warn of approaching danger.
It contains big ideas that deserve to be pondered and digested many times and reading this book is an excellent way to re-engage this material. Dallett reminds us that the etymology of the word a€?violencea€? suggests a close relationship between violence and God. Dallett makes a convincing case that our culturea€™s addiction to love, peace and happiness in effect creates senseless violence and that we must learn and find a way to teach our children, that the terrible side of life is not going anywhere. Dallett reminds us that, once a respectful and responsible attitude towards the unconscious psyche has been developed, the meditative dialogue of Active Imagination is the technique for the on-going and life- long task of engaging emerging images. Dallett grounds her reflections by allowing us a glimpse into the lives of two former patients, Pat and Teresa and she shows us the difference in attitude of these two women towards powerful inner animal dream figures.
Britt had this dream, but because she took the image seriously and engaged it for decades to come.
It is a potentially dangerous, primitive animal that has visited the dreams and fantasies of Ms.
Dallett makes the analogy to the alchemical work, which Jung had translated into psychological terminology.
At first I thought his message was personal a€“ urging me to view life as whole, not with the limited eye of my rational ego. Our collective ego is still trying to maintain its autonomy in relation to the larger mysteries while the power of the feminine in her own totality is pressing into consciousness. This discussion is unusually clear and thorough, giving a readable and rounded picture of this form of psychological worka€”both its potentiality for healing and its dangers. And why are we so fascinated by violence that crime, killing, and war are often at the top of the news?


I hear him pronounce: a€?If a thing is worth doing it is worth doing easily!a€? By this he means, according to Britt, that if a thing is worth doing it is worth taking the time to get to know it, so the thing can show you how it wants to be done. When connected to your inner program something beyond the ego comes to your aid, but when you try to go against your destiny you hit a wall. Later she realized he wanted to reach a wider audience; he wanted to speak for life, all life, animals, plants and the earth itself.
We North Americans have naively idealized the Christian virtues of kindness and self-sacrifice, dangerously repressing our so-called negative emotions. We are sedating the suffering of body and soul with psychoactive drugs, unaware that pain is a reaction against something that needs to change. 10 boats and 30 people went and had a good time as described by Adam Reaya€™s report as event organiser, here, on the LTSC web-site. I had intended to take Selene, and all plans had been made with Peter Bennett who was going to crew. When Bob retired as a GP some years ago he signed on with Fred Olsen for a few weeks doctoring each year. The Octagenarian walking stick is just a chance to celebrate each year one of our many still very active over-80s. Not strictly speaking a cruising event or competition, although the originator and organiser of the competition, Ray Collier, is one of us, and this time it was ace photgrapher Ray himself who won and to whom the trophy was presented by Barbara Hyatt. Illustrated with many photographs, examples of the lower costs in France than in the UK, and even an excerpt of Edith Piaff singing a€?Je ne regrette riena€?, Neila€™s talk had many of us thinking about emigration!
The first is that since Duncan Wright, our hard-working Rear Commodore House, with Elaine and Tracey, introduced the excellent new three course menus, the events are selling-out. As well as the vector-based Navionics charts I mentioned last time, Imrays have just added their English Channel folio in raster form as an App for the iPad at A?25. I have to go and try to find the leak through which Selenea€™s pressurised water system is pumping the contents of the fresh water tank into the bilge ready for the Marchwood YC Meet this weekend. Of course, there are still a few fundamentalists around who argue that the seasons dona€™t change until the equinox. We still have superb research and graduate education universities, but to uphold standards they now draw heavily on foreign students and faculty. I believe that if teachers want to be unionized, they should be allowed to, but they have a responsibility in turn not to abuse their power. In about half of the United States fully one third of the students entering high school never graduate.
This is a good thing, but it surely should not be the only thing that prospective educators learn in four years of college. We have a plague of ideology in this country that is stifling any public – particularly political – discourse.
Yet the majority of the population continues on the path of mediocrity and even ineptitude.
It began in 1965 to provide summer school for children about to start kindergarten and later expanded to include year-round preschool classes. What is meant by this is salaries that can lure people into a profession that they actually want but don’t enter because salaries in industry are so much more.
It was called the National Science Resources Center, a joint project of the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, and is now the Smithsonian Science Education Center – SSEC. Perhaps no one has said this better than the Librarian of the historic Library of Alexandria, Egypt.
Here are just two measures, their average grades and their math scores on the California Achievement Tests (CAT).
In the Indochinese culture these results are probably to be expected; in ours, they are hugely impressive. They may be among those who came to the United States with nothing but the rags on their backs, and beat your kids in science and math.
Inter-school sports competitions should be abandoned in favor of intramural contests in which all students can participate.
Thus there is a certain constructive subversiveness built into the scientific enterprise, as a new generation of scientists makes its own contribution. It requires a tolerant engagement with the contrarian view that is grounded in disputes arbitrated by the rules of evidence and rationality. Our youth have sparked our revolution, just as other young people have transformed societies, reinvented business enterprise, and redefined our scientific understanding of the world we live in.
Fitch is President of his own consulting firm, Fitch & Associates, based in Taos, New Mexico. If our nation and its states and communities and families get our principles and standards straight, the funding will undoubtedly follow. If we give even more responsibilities to the schools for the rearing of children, we shall have more bureaucracy interfering with how we should live and think, and at greater cost.
Also criticized is the widespread habit of using meditation to get rid of (repress) the emotionally charged images flowing from the unconscious.
I would like to see this insightfully expressed logic extended more often to the state of the oppressed struggling on every side and in all corners of the world.
The Indoa€“European root of the word a€?violenta€? is wei, which means vital force and one definition of the word God is a€?an immanent vital forcea€? (p.86). The reader is encouraged to reflect on seemingly counter-intuitive statements, such as a€?violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stomacha€? (p.92). This suggestion, although fundamentally right, may need more elaboration than this book provides, because the danger of infection by archetypal forces is high and not to be taken lightly. With reference to Barbara Hannah, Dallett devotes a segment of the book to a much needed review of what Active Imagination is and discriminates what it is not.
We are informed on the front page that this book was written with contributions by The Rhino and by Dalletta€™s former patient Pat Britt. Dallett writes, a€?The Rhino has been the central figure in hundreds of Pata€™s dreams continuing still today. The alchemists believed that their work was to redeem God or the son of God, whom the alchemists imagined as a a€?fabulous being conforming to the nature of the primordial mothera€? (p. We are encouraged to look at the place within ourselves where we remain a€?fundamentalista€?, where spirit is trapped in a literal, concrete enactment, physical illness or cherished convictions of the nature of reality. The cover photo of a rhinoceros with two small birds casually perched on its back leads us into a text full of insight into both interior and outer worlds.
Only a profound understanding can put forth such subtle and complex ideas in such apparently plain talk.
Britt had been so ill with bacterial endocarditis and kidney failure that she was expected to die in her early forties. However, if something is hard to do you should change your relationship with it, or let it go. We are suppressing the healthy masculinity of normally active children with Ritalin, either because the way we are living is driving our children crazy or because they do not conform to our expectations. Mind you, really observant readers might have noticed that I had a covert live, working, link to this blog from the LTSC site the whole time the matter was being debated by the powers that be - all you had to do was to open TellTales on screen each month and, voila, therein was the link before your very eyes waiting to be clicked! That is what I have been doing, meandering at sea for 2,950 nautical miles in a floating 5 star hotel. When launched in 1992 she was originally 538 ft LOA and she could only take 727 passengers. No, not one of those semi-submersibles which keep a bit of themselves above the water at all times, a real submarine, down to 138 feet below the surface.
The first time we chatted neither of us recognised the other, but talking to his wife, Jane, the next day the question of where I grew up and had gone to school arose and the facts became clear. The Titanic trophy goes for the biggest prang of the past season, and this year was for Barry Duttona€™s attempt to destroy what is now known as Duttona€™s Post (one of the transit marks with a ladder on it which the ferries use). Particular thanks are also due to Neil for stepping into the breach at short notice when the originally scheduled speaker could not make the date. Not quite sure which I prefer yet although waypoint addition is neater and more accurately accomplished on the Imrays. She still comes sometimes on Selene but back trouble has limited her in the long drive from where she lives to Lymington. Two weeks ago he arrived with pans full of pancake batter so we celebrated Shrove Wednesday up at the Folly with a plentiful supply of excellent pancakes for lunch. But if you work that way then summer does not begin until the summer solstice on mid-summera€™s day.
The Titanic trophy goes for the biggest prang of the past season, and this year was for Barry Duttona€™s attempt to destroy what is now known as Duttona€™s Post (one of the transit marks with a ladder on it which the ferries use).A  Arguments that Barry did not qualify, being a racer rather than a cruiser, were speedily dealt with by the fact that he often turns out at Meanderers, and in any case the race he was trying to get to at the time had not yet started - so he was cruising!A  The Endeavour trophy went to John and Chris Chaundy for their voyage to New Zealand, although as someone pointed out to me this is not quite the first LTSC yacht to make that trip because Jill Lazenbya€™s son sailed her boat there when he emigrated.
Experts agree that the results are valid evaluations of students’ knowledge and ability to creatively solve novel problems. These jobs are going begging because even though almost 8 percent of the working population are jobless and many more have given up looking for jobs, so many cannot qualify. They should have a rich instruction in the liberal arts with a major that is not in education. I ran into some students on university campuses who were bright and attractive and likeable. This is especially true in minority neighborhoods, since racism is still alive and well in America. Once a very large federal program with attendant bureaucracy and vested financial and political interests is established, it becomes almost impossible to get rid of it. They learn that a square block won’t fit a round hole, that sugar tastes sweet, and that an arm can be used for lifting things. Their basic premise is that children love to explore with real objects, be they butterflies, batteries and bulbs, weather or organisms.
They were given shelter in some of the poorest inner city neighborhoods, and there they sent their children to school.
A typical scenario was that after school at home, the family sat down at a round table for dinner. Truly professional teachers must receive remuneration that is competitive with that in other professions. Far too much energy and treasure is spent on inter-school contests that benefit so few students in any meaningful way. Many fear that the idealism of the revolutionary democrats will only pave the way for theological autocrats who preach an intolerant doctrine.
Our respect and admiration for Newton are not diminished by the achievements of Albert Einstein. Today, as they lead the rebuilding of our societies, they must embrace the values of science.
He retired as Senior Vice President for R & D and Chief Scientific Officer Worldwide for SC Johnson in Racine, Wisconsin in 1990. He was the founding chairman of the National Industry Council for Science Education which later became a part of the Corporate Council for Mathematics and Science Education of the National Academy of Sciences. Avocational interests include skiing, hiking, alpine wildflower photography, and the collection of antique scientific instruments. In my men's groups we always knew which men were at greatest risk for another violent incident: those who maintained that their anger was an aberration they had now overcome with penance and good intentions. An overemphasis on decency and virtue not only darkens the personal and collective shadow, it unconsciously identifies with divine goodness and thereby falls into inflation and self-righteousness. These and other New Age maneuvers are enlisted in the service of propping up the happy persona that conceals the darker dimensions of conflictual psychic life.
Yet Dallett goes farther: Psychiatric medication should only be used to contain severe symptoms, she argues, preferably in small doses and even then only temporarily. Most of the examples of violence in this book break forth from the uptight middle class, where swings are removed from parks to prevent lawsuits. In Jungian thought, the Self, which is the psychological equivalent to the image of God, often breaks into consciousness violently. Active Imagination is not guided fantasy nor is it art, but, following Hannah, Dallett sees Active Imagination as a creative function.
28), an earthy, fabulous, night creature, like the Rhino, equally life threatening and life giving. We meet the rhino of the title as he first appears in the dreams of a gifted woman whom the author has known for more than 30 years, initially as her Jungian analyst.
Rage, she says, is a natural instinctive response to a threat to the Self; violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stand. That left me with literally no clothes suitable for the jacket-and-tie dinner at the Royal Corinthian YC on 5 March.


Then two years ago Fred Olsen took her to Blohm and Vossa€™s shipyard in Germany and had her sliced in two and a 102 feet extra centre section added. It was much like being in a small aircraft but with fish looking in the windows and a Moray Eel to watch.
Both born in September 1940, we had flown model aircraft together, had been ace-keen Air Force cadets together, had gone to the same ballroom dancing class, and indeed had at various times dated many of the same girls.
And the caterers need a couple of days notice about numbers, so there is an absolute booking deadline of mid-day on the Wednesday beforehand.
We think this should become an LTSC tradition with a Pancake Race down the Folly Pontoon on the Wednesday after pancake day? In a temperature which at sea was never once below 25 Celsius, and on land rather hotter.A  Sunshine the whole way, except for 10 minutes of rain one day in Mexico. Both born in September 1940, we had flown model aircraft together, had been ace-keen Air Force cadets together, had gone to the same ballroom dancing class, and indeed had at various times dated many of the same girls.A  So pleasant times were spent over refreshing drinks in the hot sun reminiscing about those who taught us, or tried to, at school, the girls we knew, and so forth.
It makes no sense that the science teacher in my kids’ high school was the football coach who never had any science, even though he had earned certification as a teacher. The ‘hard’ sciences are perceived as hard because they have developed a methodology – ‘the Scientific Method’, a discipline that attempts to lead us to good answers and not to get fooled by inadequate data and thinking. So that a well-researched, developmental, inquiry-based, hands-on curriculum without textbooks will bring enthusiasm for learning, structured and disciplined learning, and creative problem solving.
They gave up everything except their boat-home to preserve their family values that would otherwise have been destroyed by the communists.
Most difficult by far, in my estimation, is the building of stronger families with the ideals as exemplified by the boat people. But fighting extremism is best done not by censorship or autocracy but by embracing pluralism and defeating ideas with ideas.
Any scientist who manufactures data risks being ostracized indefinitely from the scientific community, and he or she jeopardizes the credibility of science for the larger society. Scientists are concerned with the content of the scientific work, not with the person who produced it.
Together, all armed with these values, we can think of the unborn, remember the forgotten, give hope to the forlorn, include the excluded, reach out to the unreached, and by our actions from this day onward lay the foundation for better tomorrows.
Prior to that he was Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science for 15 years at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. This involved senior technology officers of major technology-based corporations in supporting best practice in science education.
In the light of this observation, the missionary and the terrorist stand revealed as brothers-in-arms. Making a work of art, breaking a therapeutic impasse, or modifying a relationship are three of many possibilities for new forms of expression that liberate the archetypal power from remaining trapped a€?in mattera€? (in symptom or illness).
One can almost hear in popular a€?thinking positivea€? propaganda the voice of the family cheerleader castigating brothers and sisters for being so a€?depressinga€? as to discuss Dad's alcoholic violencea€”or on a national level, the violence inflicted by the precarious rule of empirea€”out in the open. Although the alarm should be raised about overmedicationa€”psychotropics are even being found in public water suppliesa€”I have known people with major psychiatric disorders for whom the advice to go off meds to do a€?psychological worka€? has been disastrous.
Dallett pleads us to acknowledge that the terrible in human life is real and that only by confronting it, by taking it by its horns, do we have a chance of not being controlled by it. The Rhino represents an instinctual mercurial principle in psyche that holds the power to heal or to wound. The Rhino becomes an imaginal companion for Pat Britt and Dallett speculates that his a€?dependable presence may compensate the uncertainty of a life in which death is always at handa€? (p.33). We follow the patienta€™s devoted inner work with the dream rhino, as he emerges into a living imaginative reality: mentor, opposite and guide, and we learn of the healing of her life-threatening physical illness. In Britta€™s initial dream, the dream that is thought to foretell the course of therapy, a small rhinoceros charges her, but she catches him by the horn and holds on.
If you can let it speak to you, and give it what it needs you will have an inner partner for the life that remains to you, however long or short that may be.a€? (p.

One young woman at a university in the Midwest came up to me after one of my talks and said that until she heard me speak that morning she'd never understood that the original 13 colonies were all on the East Coast. There’s an important added benefit in that this leads to better academic performance in all other areas, e.g. In a matter of months the kids were not only learning English but they shot to the top of their classes in science and math, and achieved at least average grades in English!
The oldest child helped the next younger, and so on down the line, with the parents circling behind to ensure wo?rk was getting done. The inquiry-based science curriculum of the Smithsonian Science Education Center of the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academy of Sciences is exemplary. No corporate manager would agree to a seniority system; nor would one agree to Last-in-first-out (LIFO) hiring practices.
And here, science has much to say, particularly about the values that are needed for societies to be truly open and democratic, because these are the values of science.
In earlier years he held positions at North Dakota State University and at The Marshall Laboratories of DuPont in Philadelphia. He has served on the Management Team of the National Institute for Science Education, a research-oriented entity supported by a $10M grant from the National Science Foundation. We have built this great edifice of an education system not on bedrock, but on an unstable foundation (the American Family), and it is crumbling.

I am thinking of people legitimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder who took similar advice from their gurus and ended up psychotic; one, a former student, is still homeless and ranting in the streets.
As fantastic amounts of money continued to be funneled upward, the number of Americans living below the poverty line soars higher than ever before.
There is a story about the late Edward Edinger in which someone asked him, a€?What is new in Jungian psychology?a€? He replied, a€?New? Then I am reminded of the story of Edinger and his comments about what is old and what is new in Jungian psychology.
Instead she asks us to recognize violence as an intrinsic aspect of the collective psyche, one that must find expression and that does have a purpose as when a€?the Self often breaks into consciousness in ways that are violent, primitive, even monstrous.
