Program Description

Jung’s Approach to Spirituality and Religion

This lecture will describe some of the ways in which Jung’s approach to spirituality and religion differs from traditional Judeo-Christian approaches. Jung believes that the individual’s direct experience of the sacred or the holy is more important than belief, doctrine or dogma. Jung thinks that these experiences emerge from a transpersonal or spiritual dimension of the psyche. The direct experience of the deep level of the psyche produces sacred experiences that may take an entirely novel form. They are recognizable by their emotional power. In this talk I will describe some of the ways in which the transpersonal psyche manifests itself, with a range of examples.
