Animus – Anima: A Jungian Reset? – Presented by JACO Members Mary Marx and John Schuster
March 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm ESTFree
C G Jung has been credited largely with the concept that men have an inner feminine and women have an inner masculine (i.e., the contrasexual self) which allows all people access to both gendered energies. The cultural limits of Jung’s life have created confusion for people working with and studying his writing for decades, and the non-binary choices that now exist go way beyond anything Jung saw in his time. Susan Rowland’s work on Jung and gender make an important contribution here. This session is a forum for discussion of anima and animus in a contemporary context.
