We Think with our Hearts: Reading Jung through Native Eyes

November 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Friday Talk:

This talk will review how some of Jung’s ideas (mis)represented Native cultures. The notion of the “primitive,” participation mystique, dreams, and animals will be explored. Two psychic paradigms, dominion and reciprocity, will point to important differences between Indigenous and Western cosmologies and may offer a path away from our current trend toward self-destruction.
