Jung Society Lecture – Shadow Projection, Heart Wisdom and Aboriginal Cultures
Are we able to think psychologically and apply Jungian insights to relationships between Aboriginal and settler cultures? How could Jung’s emphasis on the heart’s wisdom help us sit with our complex histories, and support our capacity to excavate their legacies? What might emerge if we pool our experiences of ancestral trauma and archetypal shadow in the service of healing old wounds?
Maya has had the privilege of learning from Aboriginal elders throughout Australia. She also walked the length of the Wurundjeri Songline that follows the course of the Yarra River and had experiences of deep connection that felt ‘Aboriginal’. She will share how seeking psychological explanations of this experience led to an understanding of the complexity and depth of cultural shadow.
