1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

In the Lacan Guided Reading Group, we will trace Lacan’s train of thought concerning masculine and feminine enjoyment by reading two chapters from this seminar entitled: “God and Woman’s Jouissance” and “A Love Letter.” What is an enjoyment beyond the phallus? What is so mystifying about feminine enjoyment? And what is knowledge of sexual difference? 

Join us for the reading of Jacques Lacan’s Seminar XX: On Feminine Sexuality, the Limits of Love and Knowledge (Encore) (1972-1973).

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Without a layered and critical analysis of power, the therapeutic dynamic unwittingly condenses power structures existing far beyond and prior to the therapeutic encounter. This lecture series will explore how western worldviews and paradigms in their naïve views of empowerment, lack of critical consciousness, and power-blindness offer inadequate preparation to therapeutically engage with survivors of torture, and more broadly, with anyone facing asymmetrical power structures in helping, service, or healing arenas.

Creative Writing Workshop: Between the Unconscious and the Words

Calendar 446ec8456ba7ad618eac98f1ba957dc7149c5a5ee2199f86a462dc0b8a2ab967

The creative writing workshop is dedicated to the pleasure of writing and expressing oneself. It is not a technical course, it is an experimental moment where we spontaneously write short texts based on simple instructions, intended not to limit us, but to stimulate our imagination.
