Instructor: Judy Shaw
This year’s Jungian Concepts Seminar is being presented by six seasoned Jungian analysts. This seminar is open to anyone interested in exploring Jung’s concepts, and is suitable for both new and returning participants, clinicians and non-clinicians. The November topic is The Gift of Uncertainty, presented by Judy Shaw.
Friday November 11: The Gift of Uncertainty
“Each is deceived by the sense of finality peculiar to the stage of development at which he stands,” (Modern Man in Search of a Soul). The challenge for many of us is to grow out of the certainty that we know about “stuff,” e.g., how the world works, God, global politics, love. We grapple with the illusion that certainty is a sign of smartness when, actually, the opposite is true. Experiencing the freedom, the gift to say comfortably “I don’t know,” will be explored. This seminar will be a discussion of Jung’s ideas about uncertainty and finality, the wisdom of a ‘cloud of unknowing,’ and will include sharing thoughts about the place of uncertainty in our own experiences.
