Growing Older: Navigating Uncharted Waters
According to many schools of psychology, the development of our personality takes shape between birth and adolescence—or early adulthood at the latest. However, for Jung, our development does not remain fixed and is capable of continued growth. As he describes it, we can, and should, keep developing and individuating throughout our life cycle. The important point to remember is that during any major shift in our development, life does not continue as it has always been. We must be ready to make changes and adapt if we are to remain psychologically and physically healthy. Recent research has shown that the human brain can remain active, creative, and highly functional during our later years. Too often, we forget that our mental and spiritual health is less a matter of fate than it is a matter of choice. We can either shrink from life, or enlarge it by engaging the passions of our soul, mining the richness of our true Self, and living the life we truly want to live. The importance of self-reflection and personal growth is paramount at any stage of our lives but is all the more so as we move into our later years, when we should ask ourselves, in different ways than we might have before: What is the meaning of our lives? What has it been until now, and what will it take to remain true to our Self and find meaning in our lives during this later stage? Through a combination of presentations, workshops, sharing, dialogue, and discussion led by a distinguished and experienced faculty, the focus of this seminar will be to help us explore this vital and all important period of our lives.
