Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
The Magic of a Wish
Speaker: Fanny Brewster, PhD.
The practice of magic consists in making what is not
understood understandable in an incomprehensible manner.
One of the main sections of Jung's Red Book is titled "The Magician." As we enter the final period of time before the end of the year, something in us begins to prepare our wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
What does it really mean to wish for something? To desire what we may or may not ever have? In "The Magician," Jung reminds us that true magic involves chaos. The absolute nature of chaos is that we cannot know its form in advance. We cannot choose our chaos in order to have our wish manifest. The willingness to enter chaos is a commitment to exploring and accepting the unknown "Other" of oneself.
How can we better learn and live with our own chaos in order to have our wishes come true, to fully embody ourselves?
