On Saturday October 9, 2010 the Charleston Jung Society is hosting a presentation by Sharon Martin, RN, FNP, CNS, PhD eq entitled ‘The Dark Night.’ This will be held in Gage Hall, 4 Archdale Street, Charleston next to the Unitarian Church.
Sharon gives us an insight into her presentation: “Jung felt that our greatest problem is the enormous chasm between the conscious and the unconscious mind, and that in human beings there is an urge to bridge this division and become more whole. In view of this, symptoms and neuroses are messages from the soul, and indicate an urge to reach a higher level of consciousness. We naturally resist painful symptoms and often get caught in a compulsive need to alleviate suffering. If this is taken too far we may miss insight and meaning that can only be found in the darker aspects of life. In this presentation we will explore symptoms such as depression from an alchemical and mythological perspective and examine their corrective, healing powers.”
Dr Martin is a Jungian Analyst and founding member of the Society. For more information on Sharon go to Analysts.
