Five intellectually stimulating and soul-stirring lectures will be presented in Sarasota by Jungian thought leaders from around the country during the C.G. Jung Society of Sarasota’s 2020 INsight Lecture & Workshop Series. The society’s monthly INsight lectures are deep and delightful excursions into topics that include finding personal resilience in changing times, creativity and art, exploring the richness of aging, and confronting the mysteries of life, death, and near-death experiences. All topics are discussed through the lens of Carl Jung’s theories of analytical psychology.
INsight speakers explore dilemmas of the human condition, the horizons of imagination and creativity, and the journey toward enlightenment and expanded consciousness—all illuminated by Carl Jung’s timeless concepts. The lectures kick off in November, take a break for December, and then resume monthly from January through April 2020. All lectures take place on Friday evenings from 7-9 p.m., and include a question and answer discussion with the audience. The events are held in Sarasota at either the Carlisle Inn, 3727 Bahia Vista St., or the Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota, 3975 Fruitville Rd.
