The Large Forms Rolling Beneath the Surface of Our Lives

2022-01-12T19:49:27-05:00

James Hollis's recent lecture with us explored the themes below. Our personal stories are part of a much larger story. Jung’s articulation of a triune psyche: the conscious sphere, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious reframes each of our very unique stories with those of our species, and with the timeless, formative energies which generate our desires, our patterns, and our cultures. Examples of this timeless, archetypal image formation will be illustrated and questions raised about the subtle relationship between the individual and the universal, the time-bound and the immortal. Please comment with your thoughts about the lecture and examples [...]

Living in the Fire: Managing and Making Sense of Life-Changing Tragedies, Illness, and Catastrophes

2022-01-12T19:49:57-05:00

As a community, we gain strength and wisdom from sharing one another’s experience of loss and hardship. In light of Jerry Ruhl’s lecture this month, Living In the Fire, we invite those of you who have experienced your own deep, sometimes paralyzing, loss and emotional pain, to share a few words with us about how you have coped with and grown from those life losses. Leave these thoughts or other comments in response to Jerry’s lecture in the space provided below.    Thank you for your ongoing participation in our Jungian Community.

Jungian Psychology: A Modern Mystical Path

2022-01-12T19:50:26-05:00

"We come from mystery and return to mystery, and in between we breathe mystery... At it's best, religion does not seek to solve the mystery in which we reside and of which we are a part, nor does it make the mystery more manageable. It merely provides a myth and accompanying rituals to live into the mystery responsibly, i.e., to be a conscious conduit for the powers and presences  that are always seeking us ..." (p. 73-74) “It took real courage to write this book, in which we are led on a journey to let go of our ‘old time [...]

We think with our Hearts: Reading Jung Through Indigenous Eyes

2022-01-12T19:50:59-05:00

Please post your comments and continue the discussion on this lecture by Jeanne Lacourt. Jung’s meeting with the people of Taos Pueblo had a tremendous effect on him. It impacted and permeated his life’s work and theory and it influenced how he thought and wrote about “the primitive.” But could he have been mistaken? And what might native people have to say about his ideas of them?

JAMES HOLLIS’ PRISMS: AN INVITATION TO A LIFE WELL LIVED BY VAN WADDY

2022-01-12T19:52:25-05:00

If you’ve ever had James Hollis stand before you in a room, you’ve never been able to escape the one question he puts forth to challenge our routine, unconscious living: “What wants to enter the world through you?” What is worth your suffering? What allows meaning, purpose, awareness of the Large -- that unfolding energy that is waiting to be embodied in your life -- to have its way with you? Hollis’ latest book, Prisms: Reflections on This Journey We Call Life, is like entering a familiar old room, as if we have been here before, yet not really, as if [...]
