The Paradox of Suffering

Our Unwelcome Companion

Suffering is inherent to being alive, and our approach to suffering is significant. C.G. Jung states, “The development of consciousness is the burden, the suffering, and the blessing of mankind.” How might we re-envision suffering as a blessing that can bring change, not ruin?

In Friday night’s lecture, we will use story, poetry, philosophy, and a Jungian lens to explore both sides of suffering, inviting us to embrace our brokenness in order to move forward in the service of the Self, rather than escaping our brokenness in ways that disappoint.

During Saturday’s workshop, we will explore how we can mediate our suffering in ways that allow the unconscious to express itself. A range of possible modalities will be presented including experiential exercises through which we will consider where our suffering blocks us, as well as different ways we might explore suffering in a way that fosters our own growth. Please bring paper and pen for this process.

Bookstore and Library

The Power

 of Meaning

Too many of us believe that
 the search for meaning is an 
esoteric pursuit - that you have
 to travel to a distant monastery
 or page through dusty volumes 
to discover life's secrets. The truth is,
 there are untapped sources of 
meaning all around us - right here, 
right now.

To explore how we can craft lives 

of meaning, Emily Esfahani Smith 
 synthesizes a kaleidoscopic array of 
sources - from psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, and neuroscientists to 
figures in literature and history such as George Eliot, Viktor Frankl,
 Aristotle, and the Buddha.
 Drawing on this research, 
Smith shows us how cultivating 
 connections to others, identifying
 and working toward a purpose, 
 telling stories about our place in the world, and seeking out mystery can immeasurably deepen our lives.

Inspiring and story-driven, 

"The Power of Meaning" will
 strike a profound chord in anyone 
seeking a life that matters. Pick up
 your copy today and get acquainted
 with Emily's ideas.  
She'll be sharing them with us at our Fall Benefit!

The Power of Meaning this title
 is available online and in
 The Jung Center's bookstore itself. 
Please contact Elissa Davis 
(information below) to purchase 
or reserve your copy today!

For more information, please visit our 

website or contact Elissa Davis, Director of Retail Sales and Customer Service, at 713.524.8253 ext. 18 or bookstore@junghouston.org.

Healing Circles 

The Jung Center

As the volume increases in our
 local and national conversation, comprehension and true dialogue
 seem in danger of vanishing entirely.  
Now more than ever we need to
 practice the necessary – and difficult – 
art of listening.  Layers of thought,
 emotion, memory and image 
are always present in our encounters 
with others.  We will explore how
 to attend to these layers and how
 to make possible more direct and 
meaningful connections.  
The intention is to enhance our
 capacity to listen deeply.  We will h
ave several topics and questions t
o choose from and will use a 
Healing Circle (Peer Spirit) process
 which will be explained at the beginning of each session.

Healing Circles are held from 6 - 7:30pm, on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, at The Jung Center.

Click here for more information, or email Becky Dodds if you are interested
 in attending.
