Reimagining God and Religion: A Jungian Perspective (Lecture: 9:00-11:00 am)
Recognizing the loss of meaning of the traditional monotheistic god-image and myth for many modern and post-modern spiritual seekers, the current psychological/religious challenge involves two simultaneous sacred endeavors: to eulogize, bury, and grieve the monotheistic god-image and the religions dependent on them; and, secondly, to bring fresh imagination to the meanings of god and religion that will satisfy both the modern mind and ancient soul. The urgency of these tasks is heightened by the contemporary religious and cultural crises and Dr. Wright’s analysis: As long as our deities and devils are perceived to be beyond the physical world, in a metaphysical domain, and beyond the human psyche, our species will continue to do great harm to ourselves, to each other, and to our global nest.

The Universe as Mirror and Icon (Workshop: 12:00-4:00 pm)
The goal of the workshop will be to aid participants to clarify and/or to cultivate a personal myth or guiding statement, growing out of their experience, by which to live an ever more conscious life. The profound dynamics of psychological projection will be explored as a resource for continuing self-discovery and growth in compassion; that is, to deepen one’s connection to the unconscious and to widen one’s empathic embrace of all others. Dr. Wright will provide input, suggest personal psychological exercises, and facilitate discussion of the theme.

Dr. Jerry R. Wright is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Flat Rock, NC, and a member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. An experienced conference and retreat leader, he has also led pilgrimages to Iona, Scotland; Ireland; Peru/Machu Picchu; India; and Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand (March, 2019). He is the author of Reimagining God and Religion: Essays for the Psychologically Minded.

*This new annual lecture is named in honor of the late Kay Fowler, Jungian Analyst. Kay received a diploma in analytical psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, and practiced as a Jungian analyst in Tucson for 20 years until her death in 2011.
