The Shadow of Creativity

November 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST


When Jung experienced his Anima-Muse in The Red Book he declared himself to be a man of science rather than an artist.  How might we abandon our creative selves in shadow rather than allowing the light of consciousness to reach into the darkness and allow our creativity to emerge?  This emergence may be accompanied by suffering and periods of emotional growth that the ego is unwilling to experience. Yet, as Jung did, we see that we must continue our Psyche-led process if we are to have an authentic life.  In our discussion we will share the struggles and lessons of creativity through viewing the creative lives and works of authors as we explore and discuss avenues for developing our own creativity.
