This complimentary two-part teleseminar series entitled When the
Fairytale Ends: Lies, LANCE, and Life Patterns with Jungian Analyst
Michael Conforti offers a psychological perspective on the patterns in
play in the Lance Armstrong saga

Brattleboro, VT, January 31, 2013 -- On Thursday, January 31, 2013,
Jungian analyst Michael Conforti, Ph.D., together with special guest
Olympic coach Hank Lange will take a Jungian, archetypal, and depth
psychological look at the saga of Lance Armstrong and how the patterns in
play that affect us all. Part two of the series takes place one week
later on February 7th.

Is the saga of Lance Armstrong yet another story in our cultural and
psychological tendency to glorify and inflate and then take great
pleasure in seeing the demise of our ill-fated “heroes”? In part,
Armstrong’s story speaks to our illusions and mistaken ideas about the
nature of the hero archetype—that is, the universal blueprint that
illustrates what we consider a hero to be. Unfortunately, many of these
individuals we deem “heroes”-- athletes, movie stars, members of the
nobility among them--often have further to fall.

In our contemporary culture, have we as individuals and as a collective
lost sight of the essential characteristics of the hero? Are our current
political and religious leaders worthy of the respect and admiration
given to genuine heroes? Now with the fall of Lance Armstrong, we are yet
again, left with vital questions in understanding the psychological and
cultural impact of the patterns in play in this ongoing saga.
