Description

Human Flourishing: A Jungian Approach to the Psychology of Well-Being

Although it is enshrined in the US Constitution, the pursuit of happiness, some Jungians suggest, is worse than fruitless. It is akin to chasing a chimera, one that promises to waste our psychic resources, leaving us dispirited and empty-handed. Jung would approve of the intentional cultivation of personal growth and human thriving, however. If one could discard the insufferable swamp of happy face emojis and seek instead meaning and purpose, positive relationships, and the accomplishment emanating from engagement with one’s calling, what is reaped, then, might more closely resemble individuation; the unfolding of the soul’s path. This path can lead to a redemption from suffering, bringing fulfillment, contentment, and well-being. Learn how recent research is informing the fields of psychology, health, aging, and education.
