Join Dr James Hollis, internationally acclaimed Jungian analyst, on Friday evening and all day Saturday for stimulating lectures and discussion
The word “sin” originally came from an archery term that meant “missing the target” and suggested that such errant aim arose more from inescapable human limitation than from malevolence. This program will explore these most human of experiences—pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, sloth—through the lens of analytic psychology, and explore their causes, mechanisms, consequences, and challenges.
Given that “psychopathology” translates as “the expression of the suffering of the soul,” what are the generative forces that produce pathology? What are some examples of common pathologic states? What are our reflexive protections against pathology? What are the challenges of living in a pathogenic world, with a pathologized soul?
