Weekend events explore cultural complexes in individuals & their communities
Montana Friends of Jung will present a weekend program by Jungian analyst and author Dr. Thomas Singer October 25th and 26th centering on “The Psyche in the World: How Cultural Complexes Take Possession of Our Souls.” An introductory lecture will take place on Friday evening from 7–8:30pm, followed by a daylong Saturday workshop from 9am–4:30pm. Both will be held at Bozeman Event Space, located at 14 S Tracy.
In this lecture and workshop, Dr. Singer will explore the multiple levels on which cultural complexes operate – in individuals, in groups (based on race, ethnicity, gender and religion), in nations, and in the emerging global community. Participants will be encouraged to identify and share their own experiences of cultural complexes – whether it be in personal experience, clinical examples, or in the emerging national and world upheaval.
Thomas Singer, M.D., is a psychiatrist and Jungian psychoanalyst who practices in San Francisco. His interests include studying the relationship between myth, politics and psyche in cultures around the world. He is current President of National ARAS, an archive of symbolic imagery.
