The Jung Center

Home Strange Home: A Jungian Exploration of a Universal Phenomenon (LECTURE) (LIVESTREAMING)

Friday, Apr. 10, 2020 – Friday, Apr. 10, 2020

06:30 PM – 08:00 PM


Home is one of the most fundamental notions of humanity. Even as meanings vary across cultures and languages, “home” is a universal phenomenon that fuses positive and negative experiences and emotions. It is often taken for granted and not reflected on until it is lost. Nostalgia represents not just a longing to return to a physical house but also a psychological need to reconnect with an earlier experience of home. In Friday’s lecture, we will consider the concept of home from individual, familial, and cultural perspectives.

In Saturday’s workshop, we will examine experiences like exile, nostalgia, and homecoming, through literature, film and art. We will explore the centrality of home for psychological development and the importance of home in the therapeutic process.
