Instructors: Tom Lavin, PhD & Mary Ellen O’Hare-Lavin, PhD

Jung once wrote Modern Man in Search of His Soul. Are we still searching in the twenty-first century or do we need to go deeper? Perhaps we are not as religious as we once were. If Jung were writing that book today, could it be titled Modern Men & Women in Search of Spirit? What’s the practical difference between soul and spirit? Do we care anymore because we’re strangled by material stuff? Jung called it “the religious instinct.” What’s the religious instinct today? This lecture will explore these questions.
