Shared Realities: Participation Mystique and Beyond — Mark Winborn

Shared Realities: Participation Mystique and Beyond


Heard about this on Shrink Rap Radio where Dr Dave interviews the author/editor Mark Winborn. Worth listening to.

I had to get the book, it is a sort of meditation on the nature of the relational space. It focuses on therapy, but this would be so relevant for those of us who consider that the marriage is the therapy.

Small Graces: Mapping a Route of Beauty to the Heart of the World


Small Graces Mapping a Route of Beauty to the Heart of the World

Has a whole section on Participation Mystique and I-Thou.

Well researched.

Below is an enticing quote. The reason I’m attracted to this work is that I think that the very relationships we are discussing here, participatory, with the ego dropped, with heightened awareness of self and other, are also the relationships that are needed between therapist and client, and partners in a relationship. It’s not well grasped: they are vital to knowing each other. We can’t know others at this level of consciousness without participating in the relationship with full role reversal.

Jung: Reciprocal Influence

Stumbled on this scrap: Jung wrote that

For two personalities to meet is like two different chemical substances: if there is any combination at all, both are transformed. In any effective psychological treatment the doctor is bound to influence the patient; but this influence can only take place if the patient has a reciprocal influence on the doctor. You can exert no influence if you are not susceptible to influence.

(C.G. Jung, CW, vol. 16, para. 163)

This is close to describing Moreno’s tele with the emphasis on reciprocity, ie a flow both ways.

Friday, 18 November, 2016

This is the relational paradigm in Jung, but as in so many psychotherapies it is thought of primarily in the therapeutic relationship. The obvious leap is to see that this reciprocity is present among people, in families, groups. The more significant the relationship the greater the power of transformation.

That there is a therapeutic quality in tele differentiates psychodrama from “individual therapy”.

More on this from Zerka.

See especially this post. It has the link to the section of Psychodrama Vol 1 that is relevant to this discussion.

David Byrne – Red Book Dialogue

I enjoyed this, like being in on a psychotherapy session – well conducted by Sherry Salman.

Talking Head: David Byrne Discusses Art and Inspiration at the Rubin Museum Wednesday, December 30, 2009

David Byrne looked like a large awkward bird that had been shaken from its nest when he arrived at the Rubin Museum to take part in the “Red Book Dialogues.” That might have had something to do with the audience that packed the room to see him undergo public psychoanalysis with the Jungian analyst assigned to gently coax him into revealing his unconscious.

Previous posts link to Alice Walker and Charlie Kaufman in this series. I have yet to listen, but it sounds good!  I’d love for our local NZAP group do make some of these types of audio! The images a cool too.  Sample above.
