The Psychology of Terrorism: East & West

Terrorism and violence in its many forms and manifestations has become a constant in our day-to-day experiences.  One of the most insidious responses to such vehemence is to find oneself polarized into in a dualistic worldview that in the end, only ensures the perpetuation of the violence.  Through the use of koans, basic Buddhist principles, and the careful study of Jung’s model of the psyche, this presentation will offer a response to such fear that, when practiced, promises a more peace-filled heart.
