When Psyche Sings:

Jungian Music Psychotherapy

with Joel Kroeker

"…the role of the enigmatic musical psyche in guiding us through our life journey."

Music is everywhere in our lives, both waking and sleeping, inside and out, but much of our musical ecosystem remains unheard.

Joel Kroeker offers a rare experiential glimpse into the enigmatic process of Jungian psychoanalysis through the lens of musical expression.

Learn how you unconsciously make meaning from sound.
Explore the relativity of your acoustic perception within our collective sound-time continuum. Experience the value of taking a symbolic approach to your musical ecology.

This course explores how we relate with music personally, clinically, and collectively by gazing through the lens of depth psychology and the wider work of contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives. Within this experiential investigation, we explore together various musical approaches to finding meaning within our human experience, including aspects of joy, creativity, grief, anxiety, transitions, pain, and the depressions of life.

By distilling music into its basic archetypal elements, Joel Kroeker illustrates how to rediscover our place in the confrontation with deep shadow and highlights the role of the enigmatic musical psyche in guiding us through our life journey.
