Becoming more whole in the process of individuation is a goal of Jungian analysis, indeed, also of living. What is less noticed is the agony of integrating bits and pieces of what has been left out in our developing, due to trauma both acute and cumulative, to harsh blows of fate like war, illness, poverty. The process of integrating goes on until we die. Why would we engage this pain? Because something in our psyche addressesus, confronts us; because our neighbor calls us, humbles us. Finitude offers us limits, specific forms and choices in which to live the verve of our growing, the chance to perceive what we particularly contribute to the whole of shared existence with others.

(April 13 workshop is titled, Trauma: Suffering and Transcendence.)
