Bendigo with J. Gary Sparks
Swiss psychologist Carl Jung (1875-1961) and British historian Arnold Toynbee (1889-1975) both explore the importance of an individual’s psychological development for the health of nations. Jung’s understanding focuses on the role of the inner journey to the outer growth of a society, while Toynbee examines how the outer society develops in relation to the inner journey of its creative members. The complementary views of the two pioneers converge on the interdependence of the inner world of the individual and the outer health of the community. In theory, dreams, and practice, Saturday’s workshop will present how the two researchers’ complementary views are critically important for the crises of today’s unstable and suffering earth.
