Instructor: Laura McGrew
This year’s Jungian Concepts Seminar is being presented by four 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 January lecture is presented by Laura McGrew.
Consciousness, wholeness, and individuation are usually articulated and examined from a universal perspective, at the macro or global perspective. In this class we shall be experiencing these concepts on a micro or personal level, the minute-to-minute effort of the ego to glean particles of potential consciousness as presented to us in our everyday lives. Jung said “emotion is the chief source of consciousness” [Vol. 6; par. 179]. From that view, the experience of emotion may be seen as one’s individual stepping stone into personal awareness. In this class, we shall explore consciousness and its detailed impact on us as a means to come to understand our own specific individuation at a specific time in our lives, our journey towards wholeness in our idiosyncratic lives. Journaling will be part of this seminar.
