The role religion continues to play in today’s secular world is distressing to some and comforting to others. Jung’s notion of a “religious instinct” and his understanding of the “God-image” in the psyche provide a point of entry into the controversy and a fitting perspective for our times.
Through viewing film clips, personal reflection and discussion of the changing God-image, this workshop aims to equip participants with timely, intelligent ways to approach prevailing religious questions. It will move toward contemplating a sense of the sacred that is conversant with the spirit of the times.
Glen Slater, Ph.D., has a background in both religious studies and clinical psychology. He moved from Australia to the United States in 1992 and for the past 16 years he has taught Jungian and archetypal psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara, California. He edited and introduced the third volume of James Hillman’s Uniform Edition, Senex and Puer, as well as a volume of essays by Pacifica faculty, Varieties of Mythic Experience, and has contributed a number of articles to Spring journal and other Jungian publications.
