Individuation, Jung, and Eastern Thought

September 24, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Inner work did not begin with Jung; it has rich traditions in India and the Far East.  In this workshop we will compare Jungian ideas about individuation with Eastern traditions.  Dr. Ruhl will present practical techniques for quieting the mind’s constant chatter and talking back to dysfunctional mental patterns that keep us stuck.  Other topics will include psychological inflation versus enlightenment, the myth of meaning, and the wisdom of uncertainty and insecurity.
