What Can We Do In These Difficult Times?

Lecture Description:

The suffering places in our psyches, so intimately related to sufferings in our world, are inextricably related to creativity and service in our shared existence with others.  Suffering, madness and creativity are closely linked.  Each of us experiences this connection as a major complex that dogs our lives, despite all our work to relieve it.  Questions confront us: What is the life theme this complex is trying to communicate to me? 


Meaning Matters

Date: April 16, 2016                                                                                                       
Time:  9:00 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. (Registration 8:30AM)
CEUs:  Available for counselors and social workers.  OPA/MCEs also available for psychologists.
Costs:  Registration only through Jung Central Ohio (

Workshop Description: 

Meaning makes the difference between suffering that opens to experience of vital significance and suffering that feels a waste.  Our complexes show our path to creativity.  Does meaningfulness exist independently, showing itself to us?  Or do we construct it in our symbol-making?
