Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
The Importance of the Mystical Experience in Jungian thought: An Introduction
Speaker: Leslie Stein, LLM.
A sense of wonder, of awe, of unity, a vision, a powerful dream, a feeling of divine presence can never be explained rationally. Do they have any role is our process of psychic growth or are they merely random occurrences that can be safely forgotten and ignored? Jung describes these experiences as the "real therapy." Some have criticized this idea, saying that they are no substitute for the hard journey of self-examination. This lecture introduces Jung's ideas as to the place of these mystical experiences in analytical psychology.
Leslie Stein, LLM, is a Senior Fellow at Pace University and in Training at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York.

Yet, throughout human history, the archetype of the designer has been activated through the few, while remaining embryonic and in potentia for the many. Change is in the air. At this moment, in our time, the archetype of the designer is being activated throughout the world, through anyone who chooses to relate to it.
Let us then consider the following: What is the archetype of the designer? How is it shifting contemporarily? Why is it emerging so vigorously now?
