Psychology and Religion: Reading the Bible Again for the First Time

On Wednesday, August 15 at 7 P.M. Alden Josey, Ph.D will be presenting a talk about reading the Bible.

C.G. Jung wrote that it is a property of the human psyche to generate religious dieas, theologies and systems of belief about the nature of the gods and the interactions and relationships between them and humans.  This "religious function" of the psyche has produced an amazingly varied, and often contentious, stew of ideas and practices in every corner of the world.

Evenings with the Jungian Psychoanalyst Alden Josey

On Wednesday August 8 at 7 PM Alden Josey, Ph.D will be offering a talk on 'Living With Symbols."  

The conscious mind is a prolific creator of language that uses words, sentences, grammar and syntax to organize and communicate meaning.  In our world of high technology, we place a high premium on the right use of complex human and machine language.
