Carl Jung: Wounded Healer of the Soul

April 19, 2002 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

“The main interest of my work is not concerned with the treatment of neurosis but rather with the approach to the numinous…(which) is the real therapy.” C.G. Jung in a letter to P.W. Martin.

In this lecture, Claire Dunne will present a human spiritual portrait of Jung and the core of his work, with some emphasis on the late years of his deepest flowering, and amplified by symbolic images from her book, Carl Jung: Wounded Healer of the Soul. Jung’s work, powered by a vision that is essentially evolutionary in spirit, points to a breadth and depth of life that is prophetic for our time and is inextricably linked with the unfolding nature of man himself.
