GAY WEREWOLVES, THE SYMBOLIC LIFE and RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM: CONCERNING SEPARATION, PROPORTION and METAPHOR

Duine Campbell

Times: 10:15 - 12:45

The deeper dimension of life has been represented and upheld by lively mythology. While Jung valued the symbolism of mythology as the fullest expression of what is largely beyond words, a more modern attitude has been to equate "myth" with "untruth". Such contempt has been seen as underlying some fundamentalist religious sects in their pursuit of fanatical destruction. [My thesis is that a misunderstanding of science and of religion sometimes leads to materialism that encourages a dismissive attitude to the planet and to other people, largely because it diminishes our experience to the merely rational.]

To counter this, I want to encourage you to enjoy some areas of creative activity which seek to embody old truths in new myths and re-invigorate a spiritual dimension in terms of a new and developing body of work that may be more relevant to contemporary minds, without seeking to supersede older, and now slightly shop-soiled mythology which could benefit from refurbishment.

Duine Campbell: After working as a teacher and counsellor for 27 years within secondary education, Duine was accepted for the first intake to WMIP's Training in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy, and has since then worked in private analytical practice in Droitwich, Worcestershire as a jobbing analytical psychotherapist.
