About this event

Individuation, the Search for Enlightenment, and the Religious Function of the Psyche

Jung described the process of individuation as a manifestation of the religious function of the psyche, the archetypally based human drive to find meaning in one’s life and develop a relationship with a larger unity beyond one’s ego consciousness. In the individuation process, this search occurs with the aid of the wisdom contained in the center of knowing he called the Self, and is characterized by the occurrence of numinous experiences through, for example, dreams, images, synchronicities, moments of attunement with the natural world, in relationship, and in meditative experiences. Over the course of a lifetime, individuals following this path develop a spiritual autobiography composed of the significant moments of contacting this larger awareness.

We’ll look at this process, and explore the experiences of Western individuals whose individuation journeys have led to engagement with Eastern spiritual practices.
