Jung, Jurisprudence & Psyche: Imagining the Good Society

February 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

In this workshop we look at the U.S. political economy through the Kemetic-Egyptian Myth of MAAT, an Archetype of Justice, Judgement and orderly Judicial Proceedings. The myth offers the example of spirit and matter integrated in law and political economy. We use this myth and its teachings to interrogate legislative initiatives in the For the Peoples’ Act and the John Lewis Act. We then explore Jung’s construct of Active Imagination to construct images of the good society. We will imagine together core elements of the good society, Multicultural democracy and the psychological resistances that undermine the architecture of the vision.
