Letting Go and Holding On: Essential Archetypal Tools for the Journey of Individuation

September 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

Jung suggested that in the journey of individuation the ego needs to let go of control and defer to the Self, submitting to a principle greater than personal identity. Relinquishing old stories of a heroic ego is essential to the individuation process. Yet holding closely the values that bring us joy, strength and meaning are also essential as we enter new stages of life. This talk will explore the essential role that these deeply embedded tools play in individuation, from the viewpoint of human development, Jung’s own life, scientific research, and mythology and religion.
