The Discussion takes place here and at the FB e-jungian.com group page.
We are happy to invite you to the new interactive and dialogue form of discussion at e-jungian.com.
Since September 2015 every month we will initiate a discussion at our Facebook group page that will relate to one of the important Jungian topics.
Our first Discussion Event will concentrate on a basic topic built around seemingly easy question: „Jungian – who are we”? This question puts the issue of Jungian identity in the center of our attention. As such it is addressed not only to the professionals trained in Jungian approach, but to everyone for whom the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung and its further development is meaningful. All of us who identify ourselves with this approach to the psyche are in fact in a very peculiar situation. We come from the source which is the thought of one man – Carl Gustav Jung – who didn’t want any followers. Yet we still name ourselves „Jungians”, we share similarities in our attitudes and sometimes we are conflicted with differences. This in fact marks extremely creative field not only in Jungian psychology, but also in art, points of meeting with other branches of science and knowledge, literature, film and everyday history of thought, and we could see it in the dynamic development of e-jungian.com within the last year. Our idea is to start the discussion in which we could reflect on Jungian identity. This is especially important nowadays, as our Contact and Review editor, Tomek Jasinski shows in the article that opens up the discussion, where he emphasizes the era of transformation we are all embedded in.
The discussion will have a form of the Facebook event of one month length. We invite all of our readers to join it and share an opinion, thought or link as a post on the discussion page, or in case you do not use Facebook as a comment to this article. We will update daily both comments to the article and posts at Facebook event so they could both reflect current direction of the discussion. If the comments on the website is posted the first time by the reader it needs to be accepted by an administrator (anti-spam function). All Discussion Events will have their place at e-jungian.com in the section Reading Room/Discussions.
I hope to meet you here in comments and thoughts exchange.
