About this event

Daniel Whiteside, a Jung Society of Austin Board Member, will give a talk about the theoretical and practical connections between the modern mindfulness revolution and the process Jung described as Individuation. What does it mean to become an individual? How can meditation help us gain insight into the process of becoming a whole person?

Carl Jung said "Individuation means becoming an 'in-dividual,' and, in so far as 'individuality embraces our innermost, last, and incomparable uniqueness, it also implies becoming one's own self. We could therefore translate individuation as 'coming to selfhood'..." --C.G. Jung, Two Essays in Analytical Psychology

We might naturally then ask, what is meant by self and how do we come closer to it? This is a question that underpins both Jungian psychology and eastern contemplative traditions. This talk will explore this central question as well as the techniques that Jungians and meditators use for their investigations. Participants will be invited to take part in specific meditation techniques, journaling prompts, and have a chance to ask questions.
