Calling all Jung-ians

The Nanaimo C.G. Jung Society  is  sponsoring an illustrated presentation on “The Symbolic Life:  Rituals In Our Lives” by Jungian Psychoanalyst, Marlene Brouwer at 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Vancouver Island University campus, 900-5th Street Building 180, Rm 134.

This presentation is open to both members and non-members.  This engaging presentation will explore the potent unconscious “religious instinct” and our psychological need for the symbolic. Particular attention is focused on rituals in our lives.

In today’s technologically directed society, where traditional beliefs and ways are changing with global consciousness, educational and geographic mobility, telecommunications, media and personal encounters, we are evolving an ever increasing awareness of the world we now live in.  We have more personal freedom and choices than ever before.

Carl Gustav Jung was adamant that no one, especially in the second half of life, can be healed without attention to one’s religious attitude and that involves becoming aware of, and relating with one’s god(s) or highest values—whatever that may really be for the person.
