Instructor: Robert Moretti
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 February topic is Further Explorations of Consciousness presented by Robert Moretti.
Friday February 24, 2017: Further Explorations of Consciousness
What do we really know about consciousness? While we often think of it in practical ways, when we contrast it with the unconscious, a clear articulation of the nature of consciousness remains elusive after centuries of speculation and research. In this seminar, several contributions to the delineation of consciousness will be discussed, including Jung’s work, Buddhism, quantum physics, and psychedelics. The goal of the discussion is to find links between these various perspectives, and to consider the ways they point to the capacity for an interdependent (or what some might call mystical) consciousness. We will also discuss practical methods that can facilitate the development of such a consciousness.
