THE PSYCHOLOGY OF TERRORISM:

EAST AND WEST

with

Warren W. Sibilla, Ph.D. Jungian Analyst




"For the unconscious is not this thing or that; it is the Unknown 

as it immediately affects us"  C.G. Jung


Terrorism and violence in their many forms and manifestations have firmly established themselves as part of our world. These forces affect us all and play a role in the way we experience our day-to-day lives. One of the most insidious responses to such vehemence is to become polarized into a dualistic worldview that increases fear and ensures the violence perpetuates.

Through the study of Jung's model of the psyche, especially the Persona and Shadow, as well as the careful examination of Buddhist koans and the concept of "no-self", this workshop offers a new perspective on fear that promises a more peace-filled heart.

DARK RELIGION:  FUNDAMENTALISM FROM THE 

PERSPECTIVE OF JUNGIAN PSYCHOLGY


with Vlado Solc, M.S. LPC, Jungian Analyst



"What men have always named God is the unfathomable itself" C.G.Jung


In this workshop, we will explore the psychological phenomena and dynamics underlying conspiracy theories and Dark religion: how the Self influences the way the ego holds on to non-credible beliefs, including fundamentalist conspiracy theories. We will identify differences between spirituality and Dark religion, and consider the basic Jungian idea of numinosum.

Additionally, we will examine the unconscious dynamics of fundamentalism as an expression of ego's adherence to such theories, and review mythological and clinical parallels. Lastly, we will explore the phenomena of possession and identification; recognize basic characteristics of Dark religion; and understand where conspiracism and creed overlap.

Vlado Solc's recent book, "Dark Religion: Fundamentalism from the Perspective of Jungian Psychology" (2018) will be available for purchase.

Late in life, C.G. Jung expressed his belief that the sole purpose of human existence is " to create more and more consciousness" so as "to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being." In this program, we will examine the nature and importance of consciousness, particularly in today's world. To this end, we will consider the development and degrees of consciousness and explore frequent obstacles to consciousness. We will probe Jung's view that all psychological symptoms and neuroses derive from conflict or polarization within the psyche.

This will lead to a reflection upon social consciousness and the problem of polarization within the collective psyche today. Our aim will be to suggest how the development of consciousness is both a personal and societal enterprise. The presentation will combine lecture with the use of case examples, dream material, recent research and some interaction with participants.
