Jung at Heart: In Search of the Self
November 29, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presented by Stephen Kenneally, M.A., M.B.A., M.F.T.
Jung’s concept of the Self speaks directly to the mysterious element in the psyche that carries an unconscious wisdom, which inspires and brings meaning to life. This concept addresses the experience of being guided by the psyche, at times tormented, and at times held by something larger than one’s normal conscious experience. How can we talk about it as a psychological concept on the one hand, and treat it with the reverence of God on the other? How do we relate to the dark side of the Self with the same consideration that we hold for the inspiring spiritual side? This lecture will review various ways of thinking about the Self so that we can better relate to the emergent forces within us that lead to individuation, meaning, and spirituality.
