A Jungian Guide to Searching for Light in the Heart of Darkness
Sunday November 2, 2014 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Unitarian Universalist Church, Asheville NC
The mysterious and dramatic nature of evil and its existence has presented us with one of the most difficult issues we have to face as human beings, personally and socially. The power of evil or darkness, whether it is in our unconscious shadow side or outer reality, has the capacity to create an underlying layer of fear in the foundation of our lives. Without our realizing it, this fear can entrap us and numb our capacity for initiative, vitality and creativity. It can rob us of our sense of security and peace of mind. Yet, we live in an age that is anxiously focusing on security and the good life, while overlooking or trivializing the formidable power of evil.
This lecture is a journey deep into the human and psychological dimensions of evil and how the shadow sides of our personalities are to some extent intertwined with it to shape our personal lives and culture. We will look at evil from a personal, an archetypal and a collective perspective.
Using dreams, stories and mythical images, the lecture will develop a standpoint that is penetrating as well as personal, and will offer an approach that can help us find our way through the darkness to transformation and enrichment. The lecture concludes on a note of challenge and hope that invites us into a more profound experience of love and meaning.
