In this presentation, Dr. Conforti will discuss the unconscious, archetypal issues driving the prolifferation of violence, and the growing trend to want to defend ourselves against external threats. Discussing the tragedy of New Town, Ct, and the rape and murder of the young woman in India, we will examine what it is in our own psyche that we continue to project into the outer world, that results in an increased sense of collective treat and paranoia. We will also discuss the moral and ethical issues of a nation sanctioning the use of assualt weapons for civilian use, and the issue of national culpability. It is our lack of understanding of the power of these unconscious forces, coupled with a refusal to look at the nature of what these contents are, that drives much of our behavior. Please join us for a discussion of these important issues, to learn more about how an understanding of our individual and collective patterns which is essential for creating a safer and better life. Hosted by Dr. Michael Conforti, Jungian Analyst and Director of The Assisi Institute
