Workshop to Explore Personal Myth in Our Turbulent Time
Best-selling author and Jungian analyst Dr. James Hollis will present the “The Personal Myth in Turbulent Times” during his January 21–22 Zoom lecture and workshop for the C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota. Myths can provide the capacity to tolerate change, reframe the evolving cultural scene and provide a source of personal authority, critical for mental health.
It also can serve as a framework to assist those who are experiencing anxiety and depression as a result of social change, evolving models of society or shifting psycho-spiritual perspectives. This lecture and workshop will elaborate on these concepts, while provoking you to personalize the issues through four critical connections: to the cosmos at large, to nature and the Earth, to the community or society, and to your own psychological self.
“In our postmodern era, the burden of meaning increasingly falls on the individual in one’s search for a personal myth, so as not to suffer a ‘division with oneself,’” says Dr. Hollis. “Thus, discovering one’s personal myth has become the central purpose of life. The goal is nothing less than the integration of the unconscious with the conscious in the image of ‘my fable, my truth.’” James Hollis, Ph. D., is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, DC, and the author of seventeen books including his latest which is Prisms: Reflections on this Journey We Call Life.
