These are some of her thoughts about analysis: I feel that a most important aspect of a Jungian analysis is the willingness of two people to sit together and spend time with the details of a life, often with the attendant dreams, on a regular basis. There we listen caringly, with curiosity and without judgment to the daily happenings of our life. It is a spiritual practice. We have to practice leaving judgment behind, the idea that we could have done it better or different or other. We have to practice at being curious and interested. It helps reconnect with a sense that we are on a journey from birth to death, and that our life is ever evolving and the process of it can never be finished or perfect, what Jung refers to as the individuation process. We then become more patient with ourselves. All that is asked of us really, is that we show up every day to life, whatever it brings us, that we engage it and work with it as best we can. Dreams keep us interested and curious and connected to that inner process of life. They provide us with information about where our inner self is trying to lead us on this journey of ours, which is sometimes quite different from what we think it should be.

Lourdes Albarran. Certified Jungian Analyst (2010). I was born and raised in Mexico City where I have lived my whole life. I am married to Oscar since 1978 and have two children, Oscar and Santiago. I started my private practice in 1998.
Before joining the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado in 2006, I received my bachelor’s degree in pedagogy (Universidad Panamericana, 1980) and a master’s degree in family therapy (Instituto Mexicano de Terapia de Pareja, 1996). I have been a Professor in several renowned academic institutions in the country, as well as a guest speaker throughout the Mexican territory. In 2010, I co-founded AJUM (Friends of Jung in Mexico), a non-profit organization promoting the understanding of Jungian psychology in Mexico. I am fully committed to the goal of making analytical psychology more accessible to a larger segment of Mexican society and believe this is a proper vehicle to accomplish my goal. My inter cultural and transnational training is something that I hold in high regard and I am certain that it will be useful to the institute and the students.
