DARK RELIGION:  FUNDAMENTALISM FROM THE 

PERSPECTIVE OF JUNGIAN PSYCHOLOGY

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