What’s Soul Got to Do with It? The Politics of Being in Institutional Life 

If soul is some kind of mysterious, ineffable, and pure essence of personhood, how can it be a vital factor in something as pragmatic, political, and clumsy as institutional life? The surprising answer is, “It’s inevitable!” The more provocative and compelling question, however, concerns the character of the soul’s involvement. Is it secret or open? Is it invited or shunned? How we answer these questions an whether we truly live the answers will determine not only the fate of the soul but the fate of everything. Peter Mudd, former Executive Director of the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, explores in this presentation the relationship between the presence of soul and the vitality of institutional leadership and life.
