Instructor: Jane Kamerling
This year’s Jungian Concepts Seminar is being presented by eight seasoned Jungian analysts. This seminar is open to anyone interested in exploring Jung’s concepts, and is suitable for both new and returning participants, as topics vary from year to year. Questions and discussion will be welcome at each session.
Friday March 27: Cultural Complexities and the Middle East
This lecture will begin by exploring the idea of individual complexes and expanding those concepts from individual to the whole culture of people. The focus will be on the culture of Islam versus the culture of the West, United States in particular. We will examine the archetypal patterns of both cultures and a possible mythology that could unite those cultures in a dialogue, drawing from Jane Kamerling’s book, Lifting the Veil, co-authored with Fred Gustafson . Active participation is welcomed and reading Cultural Complexes by Tom Singer and Samuel Kimbles is recommended.
