Stages of Jungian Analysis

  1. Consolidate your standpoint in the real world – Connect the unconscious with the conscious.
  2. Confront “the shadow” – Face what you don’t wish to be.
  3. Engage anima and animus – Relate to the contrasexual archetypes.
  4. Resolve the mana (“power”) personality – Reduce psychological inflation.
  5. Circumambulate the Self – Commence your spiritual quest.

Jungian Analysis for Professionals in San Francisco

Jungian Analysis is a “psychology of the unconscious”.  Through dialogue with a trusted Jungian Analyst in a safe and protected setting, you will explore your dreams in order to understand the information, advice, criticism and wisdom that your unconscious mind is attempting to reveal.

You will also examine thoroughly the conscious and unconscious aspects of your relationships with the important people in your life, especially friends, family, colleagues and your intimate partner.  And, later in the analysis, you will learn the special skill of active imagination as a way of engaging the unconscious directly.

This process of informing your conscious position with communications from your unconscious psyche, while maintaining  their autonomy, is called “individuation”. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development.

The goal of individuation is wholeness, not perfection. — C.G. Jung

If you are receptive to these alternative perspectives that arise from deep within your own mind, then extraordinary external transformations are possible.  As your San Francisco Jungian Analyst, I will be your expert guide on this journey.

I have known Dr. Rubin since 1982 when we began our training together at the C.G. Jung Institute of Zürich.  I have been impressed by his immense integrity, human sensitivity and compassion, his clinical judgment and skill.  He has worked with very challenging patients and analysands in a most creative and effective way.  His professional reputation is sterling.
