JUNGIAN TYPOLOGY AND SPIRITUALITY
Ann Lynch, President of CJSSF, & Jeannette Sullivan, Board Member
Have you ever wondered how your personality affects your spirituality? Are you excited about active expression of your spirituality or are you more interested in reflecting upon the divine? Originally conceived in his 1921 work Psychological Types, Carl Jung’s theory of typology suggests that human behavior has unique consistencies that have a powerful impact on your spiritual expression and common stumbling blocks encountered at deeper spiritual exploration. This workshop will examine Jung’s theory of types expressed in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), and will help participants assess their own MBTI® type. It will explore how personality type influences one’s spiritual journey. Experiential exercises will suggest how participants can use psychological type theory to understand their own reactions to life and to affirming sacred practices and experiences, as well as to fathom the reactions of others. The focus will be on cultivating spiritual gifts and practices, and on helping participants assess their own spiritual progress.

Learning Objectives: By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Identify one’s own psychological type and understand some of the dynamics of typology in one’s own life and, in the case of clinicians, in the lives of clients;
Describe some ways that psychological type affects spirituality, improves communication, emphasizes the depth and value of diversity, identifies potential areas of conflict and uses appropriate language for dealing with emotional and stressful issues;
Identify positive and negative expressions of different spiritual paths and learn how type preferences can help discover what is needed for wholeness; and
Understand how knowing psychological type can benefit their spiritual search and assist them to understand their reactions to life events, religious practices and sacred experiences and (in the case of clinicians for their clients) help them to resolve some of life’s issues.
