West Meets East in Jung’s Psychology: A Dialogue

This conference continues the interchange, now a hundred years old, between Jung’s Western approach to consciousness and those of Asian cultures.   Our featured speaker, Dr. Murray Stein, traces the influence of Eastern philosophies and spiritual practices on Jung’s psychology as well as on the current and growing interest in Jung’s psychology throughout Asia. The significance of this intercultural conversation is further enriched by the presentations of Elaine Molchanov, Dennis Merritt, and Ashok Bedi who explore the personal, psychoanalytic and spiritual implications of the dialogue.
