Tuesday, November 5, 2019
12:30 – 1:30 pm
Speaker: Gary Brown, LCSW-R, LP
“In October, while I was alone on a journey, I was suddenly seized by an overpowering vision: I saw a monstrous flood covering all the northern and low-lying lands between the North Sea and the Alps. When it came up to Switzerland I saw that the mountains grew higher and higher to protect our country. I realized that a frightful catastrophe was in progress. I saw mighty yellow waves, the floating rubble of civilization, and the drowned bodies of uncounted thousands. Then the whole sea turned to blood.” C.G. Jung, MDR
Jung was born into the peaceful fin de siècle Europe, which became a bloody, war-torn world. We humans managed to kill one hundred million of ourselves in the last century. Jung had visions of blood running in the streets.
Jung’s method of “holding the opposites” enabled those fortunate enough to know of it to find the space beneath the conflicts and perhaps some meaningful peace.
What the world needs now....!
