Relying primarily on Jung, Lacan, Pseudo- Dionysius, and Henri Corbin, Dr. Marlan has followed the thread of the via negativa in analysis, alchemy, mystical theology, and in the Gnostic imagination. In and through the above traditions, the via negativa plays a central role in the emergence and outcome of an experience of transformation. It is this experience of transformation that psychoanalysis and mysticism share and where this talk will focus.

The Legacy of Dr. Leston Havens This conference will be held at the Gutman Conference Center, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Cambridge, MA Saturday September 15, 2018 | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Occasionally a rare teacher comes along who can influence generations of clinicians. Through his writing, Grand Rounds, teaching seminars, public speaking, clinical work and supervision Dr. Leston Havens was one of those rare jewels. Having taught generations of Harvard Medical School students, Dr. Havens had a long career as a clinician, mentor and teacher to many through his work at the MMHC and Cambridge Hospital as well as a professor emeritus at Harvard. Dr. Havens was known best for his ground-breaking use of clinical methods and language that were adapted to each patient he worked with. This day will be dedicated to bringing that work to life and extending the many valuable contributions that he made to the field of Psychology for today’s clinicians.
