Michael Conforti - The Spiritual Mandates of an Inspired Life
Good Shepard Center (Downstairs Senior Center)
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

Why is it that despite the fact that the Self presents us with a gift and a destiny, of a potential waiting to be expressed, that we often neglect to attend to all that is needed to bring this aspect of the Transcendent to fruition? To turn away from one's gift and destiny is also a turning away from Self and soul, and especially for this reason, we need a richer understanding of this issue.

An essential mandate in life requires that we come to know the nature of our gifts and destiny. So too, it is essential to develop a profound spiritual and courageous commitment to this aspect of the transcendent, and in turn, create a life which allows us to bring this destiny to fruition in both the internal and external world. Jung's Red Book is such a story of living out his own gift and an acceptance of the Self's mandates to live a creative life.

In this Thursday evening lecture, we will discuss ancient and modern wisdom stories, and examples from clinical practice to help us understand the personal and archetypal mandates that come with a creative and spiritual approach to life.

Learning Objectives:
1. To help participants understand the issue of career and spiritual callings in their life.
2. Learning to identify the literal and symbolic expressions of destiny within an individual life.
3. Helping participants to understand the relationship between a calling and the mandates and responsibilities attendant with that calling.
4. Learning to recognize the specific mandates required to live out one's calling.

Jung Foundation of New York, and for many years served as a Senior Associate faculty member in the Doctoral and Master's Programs in Clinical Psychology at Antioch New England.

He has presented his work to a wide range of national and international audiences, including the C.G. Jung Institute - Zurich and Jungian organizations in Venezuela, Denmark, Italy and Canada. He is the author of Threshold Experiences: The Archetype of Beginnings (2007) and Field, Form and Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature and Psyche.
