LECTURES, COURSES, WORKSHOPS
Welcome to the home of the C. G. Jung Foundation of Ontario on the World Wide Web.
The new year of programme offerings is now on-line. From this year, we are making the transition to fully electronic communications, which means that if you want to save a copy, or print, our Public Education Programme bulletin, you may need Adobe Reader on your computer.
We seem to have made a flawless transition to our new home downtown in the lower floor of the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto. Do come by and visit us when the library-office is open on Thursdays. Staff may also be there on other days, so do call or email ahead to see if another time can work for you.
Lecture at 14 Elm
John Dourley’s article, “Humanity, the Trinity’s Missing Fourth: the Psychospiritual Implications of Jung’s Quaternitarian Psyche,” serves as a basis for this talk. He writes:
“Jung’s psychology demands an elaboration of what is meant by ‘spirit’ and what Christianity [and other religions] means by the same term. This leads to the more general questions, ‘What is spirit?’ and, ‘What is spirituality?’ These questions might best be answered through a search for a meaning of spirit that both Christianity and Jung could share as preliminary to a discussion of how they might seriously differ on the content of the unities worked by the Christian spirit and by the spirit which Jung perceived at work in the contemporary psyche.”
While Dourley speaks to Christianity and Jungian psychology specifically, this talk will consider implications for other major religions and the potential gift of Jungian psychology to prompt a new religious dialogue.
