SUBJECTS COVERED

Individuation, Fundamentals of Jungian Psychology

DESCRIPTION

Diversity is a contemporary buzzword; the concept is debated, categorised and debated again. But what would it be truly to engage with our own and others’ humanity in all its aspects, and how might we move towards that end?  This seminar is first experiential, and then suggests ways in which Jungian theory is particularly relevant to these questions.

Verna Lyus will discuss “A Time of Unveiling - What it means to be human within the psychotherapeutic setting” (Reading: Burston).  Ann Shearer will discuss “Meeting the Other:Strangeness and Familiarity” (Reading: Shearer, Papadopoulos)
