Mark Troedsen - Take Shelter: Imagining the End of Time
Images of the end of the world have been showing up recently in the collective psyche, from television commercials to numerous films, novels, and multicultural religious eschatologies. Anxiety in the face of annihilation has also been common in dreams and experienced in the daily lives of people who have lost their financial, physical, emotional, and spiritual sense of security. How can analytic psychology help us live under the threat of Armageddon as seen through all of the different images that have arisen from the mutual projective process between the individual and collective dimensions of psyche?
In Friday's lecture, we will consider various visions of the end of the world framed by Jung's reflections on apocalypse and eschatology in the Red Book and other works, including words carved on the threshold of his dwelling at Bollingen honoring Philemon's hospitality and atoning for Faust's arrogance.
1. Participants will learn about a depth psychological approach to understanding the meaning of the current fascination with images of the end of the world and fears of personal, social or natural catastrophes.
2. Participants will learn how the various cultural traditions of hospitality can create a healing therapeutic frame for managing catastrophic anxiety.
3. Participants will learn how to use Jungian depth psychological concepts and practices to manage effects of vicarious trauma in witnessing images of terror, destruction, and annihilation.
