Good evening! Have you ever watched in horror as the elaborate setup of dominoes you spent weeks setting up in your garage gains a mind of its own and sets the whole place on fire? Me neither but that is a little bit what happened to some of our internal digital workings this week. Everything remained secure but it turns out one part was speaking Swedish to another part. Karl has been working tirelessly to sort it out. All of this meant that our website was not updating every night. We are spoiled and had been taking such things for granted you see. I believe, as of my current typing, everything is fixed and it is entirely due to Master Karl and his wizardry. Thank you Master Karl.

Polyvagal Flip Chart: Understanding the Science of Safety 
Deb Dana

Offers therapists a low tech–high impact, interactive way to explain polyvagal theory to clients.

When clients are stuck in the cognitive experience of their story, an explanation of polyvagal theory helps to bring their attention to the autonomic experience— to bring the importance of the biology of their experience back into awareness. Yet polyvagal theory can be challenging and intimidating to explain. [More. . .]

The Black Books | 7-Volume Set 
C.G. Jung | Edited and with an Introduction by Sonu Shamdasani | Translated by Sonu Shamdasani, Martin Liebscher, and John Peck

Until now, the single most important unpublished work by C.G. Jung—The Black Books.

In 1913, C.G. Jung started a unique self- experiment that he called his “confrontation with the unconscious”: an engagement with his fantasies in a waking state, which he charted in a series of notebooks referred to as The Black Books. These intimate writings shed light on the further elaboration of Jung’s personal cosmology and his attempts to embody insights from his self- investigation into his life and personal relationships. The Red Book drew on material recorded from 1913 to 1916, but Jung actively kept the notebooks for many more decades.

Legacies of the Occult: Psychoanalysis, Religion, and Unconscious Communication
Marsha Hewitt

Telepathy, thought transference, unconscious communication. While some important early psychological theorists such as William James, Frederic W. H. Myers and Sigmund Freud all agreed that the phenomenon exists, their theoretical approaches to it were very different. James’s and Myers’s interpretations of and experimental investigations into telepathy or thought transference were an inextricable part of their psychical researches. Freud’s insistence on the reality of thought transference had nothing to do with psychical research or paranormal phenomena, which he largely repudiated. [More. . .]

Monica Johnson & Michelle Melton

Sex, Death, and the Superego: Updating Psychoanalytic Experience and Developments in Neuroscience
Ronald Britton

Divided into three parts – "Hysteria," "The ego and superego," and "Narcissism" – this new edition adds content on brain, mind and self, the death instinct and a discussion on the biological, psychological and sociological basis of gender. It suggests that our increasing knowledge necessarily produces a dissolution of our coherent concepts of mind and brain, and that during this phase of creative dissolution we need to reassess what we know and what we don’t know. Fundamental to the book is the notion that human beings have to live with probability but that we long for certainty, and create it for ourselves. [More. . .]

The Art of Silence and Human Behaviour
Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Theodore Itten & Ruth Martin

Silence and being quiet are present in everyday life and in politics, but why do we talk about it so rarely? Silence can be cathartic and peaceful, but equally oppressive and unbearable. In the form of communication, we keep secrets to protect ourselves and others, but on the other hand subjects can be silenced with dictatorial posturing - a communicative display of power – and something can be literally ‘hushed up’ that needs to be disclosed. In unique and engaging style, Theodor Itten explores the multi-layered internal conversation on silence in relation to the self and emotions, demonstrating why it is sometimes necessary in our modern society.

Fighting for a Hand to Hold: Confronting Medical Colonialism against Indigenous Children in Canada
Samir Shaheen-Hussain

Launched by healthcare providers in January 2018, the #aHand2Hold campaign confronted the Quebec government's practice of separating children from their families during medical evacuation airlifts, which disproportionately affected remote and northern Indigenous communities. Pediatric emergency physician Samir Shaheen-Hussain's captivating narrative of this successful campaign, which garnered unprecedented public attention and media coverage, seeks to answer lingering questions about why such a cruel practice remained in place for so long. In doing so it serves as an indispensable case study of contemporary medical colonialism in Quebec. [More. . .]
