We are pleased to present a workshop with
Carl Jung was a school boy when his young mind was tortured by the urge to think an unthinkable thought. He was an established professional man when he faced the despair of having no myth or rational system by which to live his life. In both instances, a healing symbol came by what he could only call grace. He was later to call the symbol maker, the transcendent function. One could not prove, he said, that it did not come into being at the instigation of God’s will.
When rationality is impotent to reconcile opposites within us, when our best sacrifice leaves something wanting, grace transcends the gap.
Using poetry, scriptures of various traditions, and film clips as well as Jung’s writings, we will consider the transcendent function as the work of grace. This presentation affords an opportunity to meditate on the living meaning of the transcendent function and individuation.
