Revisioning Jung and the Healing Power of the Symbol in Art
Dr. Susan Rowland’s talk explores Jung’s notion of the symbol in art as an opening to the psyche of healing energies. She offers new perspectives on how this symbol connects us to nature in ways that renew the myths structuring consciousness. By giving examples from specific works of art, the paper also explores how practicing art and doing therapy can support each other in trying to heal fractures in persons and in the wider culture.
