This election has people talking, yelling, laughing, trembling. Values are being debated, promises made, and doubts cast. In this workshop, we will take the opportunity to examine our own responses to the current presidential campaigns; looking at our persona and our shadow in the context of our experiences of the political tension.
Some of the questions which will be explored are:
- What part of being an American is part of our personal identity?
- What are our private and public responsibilities toward political life?
- Can we learn something about our personal struggles toward individuation from this election?
If we accept that leaders cannot lead well without understanding or representing what enough of the electorate wants or at least will tolerate, then perhaps we must also acknowledge that the present political environment is a reflection in some part of our collective influence.
This program will be both interactive and lecture. We will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on our own responses to public political discourse from a unique Jungian perspective. We will seek understanding of our innermost sense of self as a part of the grand American conversation.
