About the event
This lecture will describe some of the ways in which Jung’s approach to spirituality and religion differs from traditional Judeo-Christian approaches. Jung believes that the individual's direct experience of the sacred or the holy is more important than belief, doctrine or dogma. The direct experience of the transpersonal level of the psyche produces numinous experiences that may take an entirely novel form. They are recognizable by their emotional power. In this talk I will describe some of the ways in which the transpersonal psyche manifests itself, with a range of examples.
