Webinar: The Psychology of the Heart

The Asheville Jung Center will be hosting a 90-minute live webinar from Guangzhou, China on April 13, 2012 titled “The Psychology of the Heart–Cultural Truth from a Chinese Jungian Analyst” with Jungian analyst and professor Heyong Shen.

“Carl Jung had a strong pull to the Chinese culture. He studied the language and wrote extensively on Chinese symbolism, particularly the I Ching. Jung once said that Chinese characters are readable archetypes. The image of the heart, is the core of Chinese culture and its philosophy. This webinar will explore the images of the heart in China, and discuss their meaning in Jungian analysis. We will have an indepth PowerPoint lecture as well as opportunities to ask Professor Shen live questions to China from your computer microphone or keyboard.”

The Power of Myth—Moyers Moments

Some short video reminders of Bill Moyers’ interview series with Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth.

Vulnerability is Our Most Accurate Measurement of Courage

There is so much to recommend about both of the these TED Talks by research professor Brené Brown, who studies vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame. Very meaningful and very funny!

“The Power of Vulnerability” December 2010

“Listening to Shame” March 2012

“There was only one variable that separated the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging and the people who really struggle for it. And that was, the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they’re worthy of love and belonging. That’s it. They believe they’re worthy. . . . What do these people have in common? . . . [they are] whole-hearted people, living from this deep sense of worthiness . . . [they have] a sense of courage . . . they had the compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others . . . and they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they were.”

Individuation, if you ask me.

“You know what the big secret about TED is? This is like the failure conference. You know why this place is amazing? Because very few people here are afraid to fail. And no one that gets on this stage as far as I’ve seen has not failed.”
