This presentation (in two parts) explores Jung’s belief that the psyche is, by nature, religious. “Religion,” wrote Jung, “in the sense of conscientious regard for the irrational factors of the psyche and of individual fate.” Diane Croft will share the religious symbolism that emerged, unexpectedly, during her own three-year encounter with a numinous Presence that felt both otherworldly and intimate. She explains, “Even though I do not practice a religion, God and religious themes showed up vividly in my encounter with the depths. I wondered why? Jung helped me answer that question.” Sponsored by CG Jung Institute New England. Learn more & register: cgjungne.com/events/
