  • January 11, 2020
    1:00 pm CST - 3:00 pm CST

Instructor: Laura McGrew, LCPC & Kenneth James, PhD

CEUs: 2

Enrollment limited to 20 participants.

Jungian analysts Laura McGrew and Ken James will share their views on individuation, a process defined by Jung as “an act of high courage flung in the face of life.” Jung has also described individuation as “an unattainable goal”  which reveals a person’s need to “follow the ineradicable foolishness which furnished the steps to true wisdom.”* In these, and other definitions, we come to understand the paradoxical nature of the process of individuation.

Laura and Ken will encourage a dialogue in which participants can ask questions and interact with the presenters to further clarify their understanding of the topic. A supportive, interactive, and informative environment will be fostered and important questions will be suggested and answered. A variety of resources will be drawn upon such as Jung’s Collected Works, the writings of post-Jungians, fairy tales, world mythologies, religious studies, philosophy, and the fine arts.
