THE COMOX VALLEY C. G. JUNG SOCIETY PRESENTS
Longing & Belonging: The Perils and Passions of Place
Matthew’s lecture will explore permutations of Belonging including the fantasies and realities of marriage, home, family, career, oneness with Nature, involvement in our community, at peace within oneself. The hour and a half lecture will juxtapose these fantasies and realities with varieties of Longing: questing for adventure, yearning for love, seeking wisdom and steadfast inner striving then go deeper into discovering how these archetypal opposites can enrich or impoverish our lives depending upon the attitude we hold toward their darker poles. What happens when our sense of Belonging turns to feeling trapped, and our Longing blinds us to the fullness of the present moment? These tensions will be explored through human stories, myths and lively discussion.
