Mysteries in Mysteries: Writing and Archetypal Creativity for the 21st century in the context of Jung’s Radical Feminism/Prophetic Transdisciplinarity

To meet the challenges of the twentyfirst century we need more and better forms of creativity in ways of knowing, ways of acting in the world and ways of being. These Jung supplies in his buried feminism and incipient transdisciplinarity. This talk on Jung’s radicalism includes connecting it to Susan’s new work writing mystery novels. By deploying Jungian techniques to explore the spontaneity of the archetypal psyche, the stories discover key patterns and myths that inform today’s collective fears and traumas. Such acts of Jungian artsbased research are research, as is all art that collaborates with the collective unconscious in its making and/or reception. Jung knew this in demonstrating the prophetic and revelatory nature of creativity. Historical assessments of Jung might conclude he was a conservative with revolutionary ideas given his social shortcomings and radical approach to cultural symbolism. Historical assessments are no longer enough since they imply a singular vision, exactly the kind of vision that Jung disavowed when diagnosing modernity as chronically sick because of a psyche split from all that is designated ‘other’ to rational consciousness. Susan’s talk will excavate the radical, feminist and transdisciplinarity
hidden depths in his work in order to support a revised social justice worldview. One of many possibilities from this C. G. Jung is JABR expressed in the mysteries in the mysteries that find the climate emergency framed through alchemy and the myths of the Holy Grail.
