“Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ~ C.G. Jung
In this presentation, two Jungian analysts share their life experiences and work over the years in this mysterious process we call individuation, a process of making the darkness conscious. We will explore the individuation process from personal, family and ancestral, as well as cultural and archetypal perspectives. The presentation will be in the format of a dialogue in which we share dreams, studies, personal experiences and observations, and also some speculation regarding collective phenomena as they relate to the individuation of humankind.
