Was Jung Woke? Exploring Systemic Supremacy Through Dreamwork
Although often criticised for some of his more sexist or racist views, the work of Carl Jung has a good deal to say about the world that we live in and how it shapes us. Recognising that we are as much formed by systems of patriarchy, white supremacy and capitalism, Jung understood that these externalised structures very much mould who we are from a very early age, creating aspects of the Shadow which need to be explored in any process of Individuation.
This morning's lecture will therefore look at just how supremacy sits within the psyche and the ways in which the internalised oppressor may hinder or silence us as we go about our day-to-day or week-to-week lives. It will also look at how in a process of individuation, only by facing that which has become internalised from said systems of supremacy can we then even attempt to divest ourselves of said structures in order to walk that long, lonely path towards individuation.
