Jungian Psychology and Analysis As Psycho-Spiritual Event, As Religious Occasion

April 25, 2015 @ 3:00 am - 8:00 am


Three question to be addressed in this lecture/workshop:

How is Jungian psychology/analysis sacramental, what is the liminal territory of its operations?

How is Jungian psychology/analysis a safe haven for the irrational, deep feminine, and earth centered healing technologies so often banned by metrics profession?

How to preserve this legacy psychology and soul craft in this era of corporatist culture and craft; preserve and enhance it for its broader re-discovery in a more enlightened era?
