Dr. Jung felt that our greatest problem is the chasm between the conscious and the unconscious mind.   He also believed that in human beings there is an urge to bridge this division and become more whole.  In view of this, symptoms and neuroses are messages from the soul, and indicate an urge to reach a higher level of consciousness. Western medicine and psychotherapy are compulsively focused on treating symptoms and alleviating suffering.  If this is taken too far we may miss insight and meaning that can only be found in the darker aspects of life.  By exploring Jung’s theory of opposites, we will analyze symptoms such as depression from a constructive perspective, perhaps developing a respect for their positive place in our lives.  We will also investigate these difficulties from a mythological perspective and examine their corrective, healing powers.

Sharon Martin was born and grew up in the Deep South. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degree at Emory University in the Psychosocial Nurse Practitioner program, obtaining advanced certification as Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist. This program introduced her to the exciting work of C. G. Jung. Her fascination with his deeply spiritual and scientific approach lead to her enrollment as a training candidate at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, where she received her diploma in Analytical Psychology in 2005.

She began her private practice in Atlanta in 1999 and now lives and practices in Charleston, SC. Sharon is a member of the C.G Jung Zurich faculty, where she regularly lectures and gives seminars. She is also a member of the Executive Committee of the The Interregional Society of Jungian Analysts, where she is also a training analyst in the Memphis-Atlanta Seminar.
