Jung, Synchronicity and the New Sciences

September 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Zoom Webinar OR United States

Jung had a deep interest in how modern science related to psyche. He worked closely with physicist Wolfgang Pauli to explore how psyche and matter are interconnected, in particular with regard to synchronicity. The discoveries of quantum physics, relativity theory and complex systems theory have radically revised how we see and know our world. We will explore the essential dimensions of the ‘new’ sciences and how they intersect with Jungian psychology. We will consider how life is rich in potentialities…

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Zoom Webinar OR United States

"The energy of the central point is manifested in the almost irresistible compulsion and urge to become what one is, just as every organism is driven to assume the form that is characteristic of its nature, no matter what the circumstances.” Jung believed that we have a compulsive urge toward individuation, an irresistible drive to become whole.

Individuation Hijacked: Persona and Hero in an Evolving Universe

October 17 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Zoom Webinar OR United States

Building on the Friday evening lecture, the Saturday workshop will explore what happens when the archetype of the hero is hijacked and unhealthy compulsion takes the wheel. The compelling urge to achieve and master, so characteristic of heroes and heroines, may be used to avoid shame or insecurity. The original intent of heroic energy is then lost and the personality becomes rigid, controlling, and work-obsessed. This leads to the illness of our times, an unhealthy and compulsive pursuit of status…
