Path to the soul: an Eastern and Jungian perspective

A presentation by Ashok Bedi M.D

Venue: The Quaker House, 10 Hampson St, Kelvin Grove
Admission: Members & Concession: $10 • Non-members: $15

In first half of life, we must establish our ground to survive in the outer world in the realm of Maya and in the process accumulate positive and negative Karma. In the second half of life, we have to rebalance our Karmic balance sheet guided by our soul’s whispers to attend to our Dharma or Purpose in this lifetime. Participants would be introduced to the integrative Hindu and Jungian perspective on establishing their path to their soul, by decoding the symbols of our soul that incarnate in our life. These symbols manifest as dreams, fantasies, complexes, synchronistic events, accidents, relationship tangles, and creative outputs, medical and psychiatric symptoms & Kundalini events. All these incarnations of the soul carry a potential symbol. These symbols have the potential to renew and rekindle the vitality and purposefulness of our life. Methods to decode and honor these soul symbols will be explored using case vignettes and film clips.
