JPEG Programme 2021-22
Title: Myth and the crisis of meaning in our time
In this JPEG series we will explore Jungian thinking on myth, meaning and the spirit in order to face the crisis faced by 21st Century civilisation. With the current pandemic and possible future ones as well as the environmental crisis and the Black Lives Matter/ethnic minority/inclusivity-exclusivity crisis, are we learning anything or do we just feel too overwhelmed? What myths do we live by today? Whose myth is to rule the day – or can we conceive a multi-mythic culture? Is religion relevant? Does spiritual practice help our journey? Have we lost our way both individually and collectively? Are we coming together or are we withdrawing culturally and nationally from others? What is the balance between nationalistic fear and collective human wisdom? Is it too late or do we have to learn to tolerate a long struggle? There are now many pressing questions facing all of us in a world where the economic arguments and the search for resources and wealth undermines democracies and the survival of sustainable living on the planet. Have we lost our moral and ethical compass? Can we no longer rely on what we know? How long can we postpone the future?
