Topic: Jung's approach to the psyche is intrinsically spiritual, which is why many of us are attracted to his work. At a time when increasing numbers of people are disenchanted with traditional religious institutions, Jungian psychology offers the possibility of developing a personal spirituality that is not dependent on any dogma or doctrines. For therapists and for people on an individuation journey, Jung's psychology allows us to work spiritually and psychologically at the same time.
This lecture will describe Jung's view of religion and the ways in which the manifestations of the transpersonal psyche such as numinous experience are related to the individual’s life situation and personality. I will also discuss Edward Edinger's suggestion that thanks to Jung we are now entering a new stage in our religious development, which he called a new dispensation.
Presenter: Dr. Lionel Corbett trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian Analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. His primary interests are: the religious function of the psyche, especially the way in which personal religious experience is relevant to individual psychology; the development of psychotherapy as a spiritual practice; and the interface of Jungian psychology and contemporary psychoanalytic thought. Dr. Corbett is a core faculty member of Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California, where he teaches depth psychology. He is the author of numerous professional papers and three books: Psyche and the Sacred, The Religious Function of the Psyche, and The Sacred Cauldron: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Practice.
