    Psyche and Solace: Jung and the Care of Souls in a Time of Toxic Political, Corporate, and Cultural Threats

    We live in a pandemic-darkened and populist-darkened era where major economic, political, and many cultural institutions are engulfed by a corporatized, racist, misogynist, greed-based, and wealth-hoarding mission. Many of our individual clinical practices are embedded in such tainted structures. All of us are absorbed in often harmful, preconscious racial and cultural assumptions that distort our healing intentions and interactions. Nonetheless, the Care of Souls paradigm is at the root of our shared clinical ministries. It is a Deep-Soul, Deep-Earth vision profoundly opposed to the transgressive forces that have subverted much of our global, economic, political, and psychospiritual culture. Drawing from Jungian psychology, this three hour workshop will engage a variety of theoretical, clinical, and arts vignettes to amplify the Care of Soul narrative and will also provide small group interactive time.
