Jung and Me
A presentation by Dr. Saibal Guha
Thursday, November 2, 2023 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Venue: St Mary’s Anglican Church Hall,
455 Main St, Kangaroo Point, Q 4169
Admission: Members & Concession: $10 • Non-members: $15
In this talk, the focus will be to narrate the defining milestones in Saibal’s journey through childhood in India, from being an introverted child to becoming the person he is today through many landmark events and incidents that were possibly triggers to bring out the unconscious need to explore, to seek and to find himself. Why did he become a Psychiatrist? Why did he change countries? Why was he ‘running’ throughout his life? What were the unconscious triggers? Was there synchronicity and acausality in his life progression?
Saibal always associated his inner restlessness as an impetus to seek salvation through achievement. His efforts have been conscious and sometimes strategic. But deep down, like Carl Jung believed, he always felt an unconscious need to push forward. The journey followed an ill defined and unchartered path, with inevitable twists and turns. However, Saibal always knew each destination he reached was only the beginning.
Saibal will present his perspective and understanding of his ill defined psyche, possibly unpacking the psychological construct of a Psychiatrist. This talk will be reflective, narrative and thought provoking. So he believes… And, those who come on this day to hear him speak will be part of his collective unconsciousness and his destiny to have your esteemed presence in his life. And Saibal’s story.
Saibal will unravel himself to you for the first time. So, if this talk evokes your interest, you are connected to Saibal and have always been.
