"The Art Of Outgrowing Your Problems"
A lecture by Dan Keusal, M.S., LMFT.

C.G. Jung Society of Vancouver BC
“The greatest and most important problems in life
can never be solved, only outgrown.”
In contemporary culture, and in many current approaches to therapy, we tend to respond to our problems with heroic efforts to “solve” them. This holds out the promise of fast relief from our symptoms, but minimizes the importance and the value of engaging the unconscious, and therefore runs the risk of robbing our lives of depth, nuance, meaning, and individuality. C.G. Jung suggested a different approach: instead of trying to solve our problems, we might outgrow them. What does this mean, and how can we go about it? Starting with ideas Jung presents in CW13, this lecture will draw on poetry, film, comics, music, photography, and more to explore these questions.
