Understanding the Nature of the Unconscious

A talk by Benny Nagari

Hypnotherapists routinely talk to - and about - the "unconscious" and take this concept for granted.

But have we all decided what IS the unconscious? Does it (as some may dispute...) exist?

If it does, what is it's nature and characteristics? Some fairly fundamental questions but questions with far-reaching implications which were examined in depth at the society's Ocober 2004 meeting.

Our speaker was North London-based Jungian psychotherapist/hypnotherapist Benny Nagari and his lecture edealt with the philosophical/practical aspects of what is the unconscious, delivered mainly from the Jungian point of view.


As visitors to his website www.hypnojung.co.uk will discover, Benny Nagari is a man who operates under a number of different hats.

He has an MA in analytical psychology (Jungian and post-Jungian studies) from Essex University and has DHP(Hon's.) from the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis.

He is a member of the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP) and a fellow of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health (RSPH).

But he is a also a musical arranger and orchestrator with B.Sc in Liberal Arts (Empire State College, New York) and as an active composer has many long years in the music and showbiz industry.
