The Polarized Psyche: A Cry for Transformation

To say that we live in an increasingly polarized culture has become nearly a truism today. The clash between political liberalism and conservatism, between religious fundamentalism and progressivism, between free and restricted speech, and between nationalism and globalism appears to confront us at every turn in our lives. At the same time, years ago C.G. Jung reminded us that “a political situation is the manifestation of a parallel psychological problem in millions of individuals.” In other words, polarization of any kind often points to conflict within our own psyches. In this program, we will explore how the cry for transformation and integration comes from within the soul itself. To this end, we will examine how Jung’s theories of human development, neurosis, and the creative tension of opposites offer us a way to approach the polarities we find in ourselves and in our culture at large. This presentation will combine lectures with case examples, dream material, and some participant interaction.
