The Voyage of Real Discovery: Carl Jung and the Quest for Meaning in the Second Half of Life A Virtual Salon with Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D
Sunday, July 26 10:30 am- 12:30 pm PST
"The real voyage of discovery consists not of having new landscapes, but new eyes" -Marcel Proust
At the age of 40, Carl Jung had achieved everything he had longed for: an impressive career, an international reputation, wealth, a lovely wife, a beautiful home and five children. There was only one problem: he realized that the seemingly enviable life he was living lacked authenticity and depth- it was, in fact, a script of someone else's life. The ensuing personal crisis from this realization drove Jung to explore his inner realms through art and mythology, discovering techniques of insight that became the foundations of Depth Psychology and brought him a sense of revelation, purpose, wholeness and completion.
In this virtual salon we will trace the inspiring story of what Jung discovered and explore some of the powerful tools he developed to navigate the depths of our own lives. Through lecture and the astonishing images of his Red Book, we will embrace the biggest journey of all: the journey of self-discovery.
"The privilege of a long life is to become who you really are" -C.G. Jung
