Friday Evening Lecture

Consciousness: A Jungian Perspective

Date: October  13, 2017  7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Presenter: Dean Schlecht, M.Div.
Location: St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, Inwood at Mockingbird

$20.00 non-members (includes a complimentary reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres and wine)

Contemporary empirical explorations of consciousness, as exemplified by Carl Jung, is of fundamental importance for understanding the nature of reality and our place in it. The fullest achievement of our human potential depends upon the degree to which we are willing to accept and experience our material reality while at the same time being committed to participating in consciousness as deeply as possible.  This is the path to an authentic, rich, creative and transformative life.  No religion, belief system, esoteric practice or guru is required.  A clear-eyed grounding in the empirically verifiable manifestations of consciousness, and a willingness to be committed to truth and love above all else are prerequisites for being fully alive.
