The Jung Center

Psyche as Viral, Video as Vessel, and the Surge of Cultural Outrage: Anima Mundi at the Edge of Chaos

Saturday, Jun. 20, 2020 – Saturday, Jun. 20, 2020

10:00 AM – 01:00 PM


Join us in reimagining the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent nationwide upheaval against police brutality, in order to better see the presence of the psyche at work in its explosion of images. We will see the character of the psyche, one of a unique and different order, in the ubiquitous, ambivalent nature of the virus as well as in the character of the culture and the inter-relationship of biological, psychological and cultural systems. We will focus on how systems reflect each other dynamically as well as how they bring into question our agency in the world and our very notion of “self” and “other.” We will also see how the dismantling quality of the pandemic and enraged social protest is revealing, not only of the uncertain nature of cultural and individual identity but also of our assumptions regarding social interaction and home life in a world held together through the soul of technology.

Livestreaming is accessible from home or anywhere with an internet connection. If you register, you will be emailed viewing instructions prior to the event.

All times are CDT. Please contact onlinelearning@junghouston.org with any questions. Learn more about online learning.
