A Saturday Lecture with Stephen Kenneally, M.A., M.B.A., M.F.T.
Jung’s concept of the Self seeks to capture the experience of something greater in the psyche than our familiar ego consciousness. This can feel like an inspiring inner guide that facilitates and brings meaning to life, and it can feel like a tormenting fate that keeps us at odds with ourselves. How can we talk about it as a psychological concept on the one hand, and treat it with the reverence of spiritual yearning on the other?
This is Jung’s great insight; we have within us dimensions that must be stood up to and understood, as well as dimensions that must be submitted to and served. The task of our consciousness is to learn how to discern the right approach. Too much rationalism cuts us off from our deeper knowing of ourselves. Too much superstitious reverence for the inner/outer Other in our psychic field and we fall into inflations, deflations, and fundamentalism. An ethic for life emerges if we tolerate this complex notion of the Self.
