How do the ideas of C.G. Jung apply to finding and experiencing meaningful work? What is necessary psychologically to find the right career? What are Jung’s ideas about doing “the work of a lifetime”? How do inner conflicts hold us back in our profession? In this class we will explore Jung’s writings, and those of his pupil Marie-Louise Von Franz, to address these questions and other common work issues such as dealing with difficult people and bosses, achieving acceptance and rewards, and understanding how our work can make a contribution to the world.
