This Meetup group is to connect you with the events sponsored by The C.G. Jung Society of the Triangle. The best ways that we've found to connect with others are:
Attend the Friday lectures - arrive at 7:00 PM to mingle. Most of the gathering happens before these events, as the lectures typically run from 7:30PM - 9PM plus Q&A. Please introduce yourself, don't be shy!
Attend the Saturday workshops and bring a brown-bag lunch, or pick up lunch at the nearby Whole Foods, then spend the lunch hour talking with other attendees. As you can imagine, this bunch of people has some interesting discussions when they get together.
Consider joining the C. G. Jung Society of the Triangle. Membership now runs for a year from the date of payment. The workshop fees are discounted, but more importantly, you'll be invited to member-only events that provide for a deeper connection. At a minimum, we hold a Winter Solstice party every December, and a Jung Birthday party every July.
Membership is $50 for an individual, $75 for a Couple, $15 for full-time students with ID
The term “Imaginal World,” made popular by the great French writer Henri Corbin, refers to a dimension of life outside the norm, a dimension only perceivable through the imagination. The imagination, however, is not something unreal or ungrounded, a creator of fantasies and illusions. Rather, it is a powerful mode of perception that connects us with a world just as real as our ordinary world of everyday reality. As Robert Johnson has said, the imaginal is not real, it is realer than real. In this lecture I shall discuss the nature of the imaginal, its relationship to Jung and the process of individuation, as well as the transformative nature of imaginal experience. I shall also outline ways in which one can begin to live an imaginal life.
$10 for members, $15 for non-members, $5 for students with ID
Online registration available at http://jungnc.org/
Organizer will be at the members registration desk.
Building on the discussion Friday night, we shall continue our exploration of the theoretical nature of the imaginal and imagination but will concentrate on the experience of several methods for living the imaginal life. These methods include dreaming, active imagination, as well as working with inner impulses and synchronicities. There will be opportunity to practice and then discuss our experiences working with these techniques. We will also discuss ways to live the imaginal life on a daily basis. The practices used in the workshop are suitable for both those new to Jung and active imagination as well as those more advanced.
Admission is $40 for members of the C. G. Jung Society, $60 for nonmembers, $15 for students. Register online at http://jungnc.org/
