Koans, stories of encounters between Zen practitioners, are myth-like in their resonance across time and culture. Their concise form is rich with archetypal imagery, which, in some stories, provides perspective on the process of individuation.
In this lecture, Jung's methods of seeking wisdom in myth will be applied to koans to explore the process of individuation. The ancient stories will be mined for their insights about the process of individuation, not just as an intellectual exercise, but emphasizing their application in each of our lives, in the present and every day.
How about today? Have you received a call for a genuine response, whether substantial or minor? Did you recognize the call? Was there room for a more engaged response? With questions like these, we will hone awareness and our abilities to seize opportunities to respond in an individuated manner, one encounter at a time.
