JUNG IN IRELAND 2015 – RESILIENCE, HOPE, & THE GIFT OF ADVERSITY
April 19, 2015 @ 8:00 am - April 26, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
Join us in County Kerry, affectionately known in Ireland as “God’s Kingdom.” Located in southwest Ireland and facing the Atlantic Ocean, it features the famed Dingle and Iveragh Peninsulas. Our 2015 Seminar will be based in the town of Killarney, County Kerry’s most vibrant town. In this seminar, we will explore the themes of resilience and hope and how the experience of adversity, although unwelcome, nevertheless has the potential to enrich our lives and turn our so-called lead into gold.
Our week includes the option to join in two unique excursions: a journey to the Iveragh Peninsula guided by renowned Irish archaeologist Michael Gibbons, and an outing to the remote and rarely visited Beara Peninsula – led by Celtic expert Rob Vance.
What is resilience? Is it something we are born with or can it be developed? Why is it that some of us are able to bounce back after a major setback, often becoming stronger, while others cannot seem to survive life’s disappointments. Some of us are able to overcome adversity, lack of success in life, and rejection in relationships yet not allow it to forever define our lives. Notwithstanding catastrophe, a devastating trauma, or the kind of personal tragedy that may scar us forever, some of us may utilize adversity to grow, find spiritual meaning, and enhance our lives.
Does resilience mean forgiving God, our parents, or others for our personal tragedies and pain? In the face of adversity, can acceptance help us move on, change, create new visions, goals, and create a more meaningful outlook on life?
Examples abound of famous individuals overcoming adversity and setbacks in life – including artists, influential world figures, performers, athletes and authors. Well-known people like Victor Frankl, Elie Wiesel, and Nelson Mandela not only survived war, trauma, and personal tragedy, but were able to find joy in life and be inspirations for others. And of course, Carl Jung confronted his personal demons to create the Red Book and pioneer a creative approach to the psyche.
Through a combination of presentations and experiential workshops, our faculty will help us understand more about our own psyches, the plasticity of our brains, and the potential we all have for change and finding hope and creativity in the face of despair. Drawing on the spiritual and the psychological, the physiological and the philosophical, it is possible to look inward for direction and move from life’s setbacks to personal transformation.
