We will explore the Jungian psychological perspective of psychological maturity and the tools that support our development through the use of moral intelligence. Rather than identifying with one extreme while letting its opposite find expression through the shadow, psychological maturity allows us to recognize and hold the tension of opposed moral attitudes. The goal of such strenuous work is to identify which complex has been activated. Tools for exploring the terrain between opposite poles and how to negotiate them with moral sensitivity include dreams, imagination, art, typology, and the I Ching.
