About the Program

Contemporary workplaces and social spheres are experiencing both an infusion of technology and a growing awareness of the impact this has, both positive and negative. This can cause internal conflict of which we may not even be aware. We each live with contradiction. Engaging with Jung’s theory of the individuating psyche can help us grow from it. We can get there through doing what Jung referred to as becoming psychological. This session seeks to deepen understanding of the internal conflicts that become clearer through consciousness development. Participants will apply this knowledge to contemporary advances in technology and social media and concerns about sustainability. Developing a balanced perspective means understanding both the potential and the danger of adopting new technology. It comes down to where we will find the courage—before that next purchase, download, or posting—to pause and reflect, and to act with intention—as if the whole world mattered.
