How shall we go forward?
What can a Jung discussion and study Group bring to participants who are living in a world in upheaval and transition?
My own sense of it is that we need to be nimble and consider each new challenge as it arises.
For instance, I am about to begin a dream group here in Dubbo, and many people dream about climate change and the threat to our stability and security. What do we do when our earth mother is apparently unreliable? Not forgetting that the human population has paid scant heed to her needs though those needs paradoxically also nourish us?
Over the holidays I read, "Pauli and Jung: the meeting of two great minds" by David Lindhorff. I just happened to have this languishing in my bookshelf. Pauli, a physicist, and Jung a Depth Psychologist, looked at issues from physical and psychological perspectives.
Pauli, when considering the passion for scientific discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries, said, "The passion broke through the barriers between different human activities and brought into the most intimate connection things formerly separated, such as empirical observation and mathematics, manual techniques and thought, art and science." Pauli was writing in about 1955.
