Jungian Book Discussion

Jungian Discussion Group

The Jung Society of North Texas sponsors a book discussion group that meets in the Eisenlohr Library of the First Unitarian Church of Dallas, 4015 Normandy Avenue (Preston and Normandy), the first and third Tuesdays of each month, 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.  All are welcome free of charge. Alison Henley facilitates. You may contact her at <alisonhenley@sbcglobal.net>.

On Tuesday, December 4, 2018, we will begin discussion of Why Good People Do Bad Things: Understanding Our Darker Selves, by James Hollis.  "Working with the Shadow is not working with evil, per se. It is working toward the possibility of greater wholeness. We will never experience healing until we can come to love our unlovable places, for they, too, ask love of us." In addition to its presence in our personal lives, Hollis looks at the larger picture of the Shadow at work in our culture--in history, religion, our organizations, and corporations. 
For the December 4th meeting, please read the Introduction: Shadow Encounters and Chapter One: Sundry Shadings of Soul, The Four Forms of Shadow Expression
