Sven Doehner, PhD, MFA, is a Psychoanalyst from México City, trained in C.G. Jung´s Analytic Psychology, by James Hillman in Archetypal Psychology, in Somatic Movement in the School of BodyMindMovement, and in Vocal Practices by diverse teachers around the world. He has guided workshops and training programs related to personal and transpersonal self-knowing since 1981, in Mexico, Europe, Australia and North, Central and South America.
His psychotherapeutic work blends a Junguian Archetypal vision and principles with a somatic and sound sensitivity – along with a fine sense of native hearing and spiritual practices – to work with others to relate to the images in their life, and dreams, in ways that restore equilibrium in their lives. Working with Sven involves opening spaces that constructively affect the somatic, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of ourselves, restoring movement to their Being.
He founded the “Instituto de Psicología Profunda en Mexico” in 1991, with the intention of introducing Jungian Archetypal Psychology to Mexico.
His contribution to the spirit of Psicología Profunda en México is a tradition of experiential learning, offering theoretical, practical and integral tools designed to awaken individual richness, spirituality, creativity and development within community, always looking to open new possibilities for Being in life.
His work continues in the courses, workshops and retreats he periodically guides. See the Activities Calendar.
He is presently the Director of the “Instituto Macuil“, a school that offers a Transpersonal Education, with certifications in “Transpersonal Art Therapy” and “Transpersonal Psychology”. See: www.institutomacuil.com.
Sven´s most innovative and revolutionary work involves developing what he calls Sound Imagination– ways of working with the images in our dreams, and lives, that includes vocal sound practices that often prove to be unexpectedly transformative.
