Healing The Soul in Anguish: Psychological and Spiritual Approaches to Suffering Lecture

March 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$15 – $25

Join us in a powerful discussion focusing on the problem of suffering, the effects of suffering on the personality and a variety of approaches to address suffering found in depth psychology. This lecture will look at ways to find meaning in suffering, times when suffering can be seen as an initiatory process into a new level of consciousness, and the process of radical acceptance of suffering in situations in which it cannot be changed. We will also contrast some of the traditional spiritual approaches to suffering with a psychological approach.

The C.G. Jung Society of Sarasota is a nonprofit organization established in 1994 to encourage personal growth and raise the consciousness of individuals of all ages. The Society’s lectures, workshops and small group meetings are inspired by the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), whose theories on archetypes, synchronicity and the collective unconscious have profoundly influenced how society understands and relates to the arts and cultural disciplines, as well as providing a widely accepted framework for individual exploration of the human psyche.
