Book Discussion on Lionel Corbett’s “God-Image: From Antiquity to Jung”

June 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Free

We have wrapped up Part I of Man & His Symbols.  It has been a very interesting journey, and it has been wonderful having so many of you join us.  We are giving serious consideration to continuing with this book in the fall.  However, for now, and after much discussion, we have decided to explore a different angle of Jungian psychology/philosophy.   Starting on Sunday, June 9, 2024, Board Member Mary Marx has graciously offered to lead a discussion on a 70-minute lecture by Lionel Corbett to study ideas from his book the God-Image:  From Antiquity to Jung.  We will meet 3-4 times watching segments of the video followed by discussion.

According to Corbett, a new God-image is emerging alongside our traditional God-images.  According to Jung, an innate God-image (the Self) exists in the psyche and allows a personal connection to the sacred.  Images of the Self have a particular quality about them, e.g., mysterious, fascinating, awesome, dreadful, and uncanny.  They point to wholeness and completion.  Corbett says that God images in traditional religions and sacred texts such as the Bible “might be intellectually and emotionally satisfying (even if not directly experienced) but personal numinous experience is more convincing.”  In addition to explaining Jung’s approach and providing rich examples, Corbett shows how Jung’s ideas bypass difficulties in traditional teachings, such as how a God of Absolute Goodness can be reconciled with evil and suffering in the world.

All meetings will be by Zoom starting Sunday, June 9, 2024 from 4-5 pm and every 2 weeks thereafter.   Coming to Book Club is free, but you do need to register so that we can send you the Zoom link and contact you in the event of any changes.  If you have any questions, feel let us know.  Otherwise, please scroll below to register (RSVP).  This should be a great discussion!
