Instructor: Judy Shaw, LCSW
Mark Salzman’s novel, Lying Awake, explores the experience of God in a Carmelite nun, Sister John. Whether or not you have read the book, you are invited to join in this discussion of the power and price of faith and community. Judy will draw in examples from Lying Awake, which follows the story of a woman who grapples with the ecstasy of meeting the Self and the agony of choosing her life and community, exemplifying ego’s purposive function. We will discuss the underlying themes of ego/shadow conflict, Jung’s definition of “Self”, and the interplay between Ego and Self.
