Psychology and Life

What Matters Most: Why Do We Harm Others? (Livestreaming)

Anna Guerra

Event details


(No class November 25.)

Why are we here? How can we live fulfilled, meaningful lives? Why do we suffer? How do we build a truly connected, inclusive community? The most important questions in our lives do not have simple answers. Often we have to live our way into those answers over a long time — they can’t be found in five easy steps in a YouTube video. And we need people and perspectives different from our own to support us in the process.

In this yearlong series, we will ask six questions that can help us discern what matters most in our lives. Each of these four-week classes will explore the practical wisdom of C.G. Jung and depth psychology to open new possibilities, to give us tools for the journey, and to connect us with others who are deeply concerned with living lives of integrity and relatedness:

How can we be free?
Why do we harm others?
Why do we suffer?
How can we be transformed?
How can we accept mortality?
How can we help others?

Course Two: Why Do We Harm Others?

We are wiser than we imagine ourselves to be. None of us could possibly have learned all the necessary life lessons from our parents and early role models. We naturally — and unconsciously — fill in these gaps by adapting with behaviors that keep us alive and more-or-less functioning, and move on to develop more conscious interests and values. But how does what we don't know about ourselves continue to show up in, and even hurt, our relationships with others? Join us as we discover ways to probe these powerful, elusive areas of our psyche through lecture, film, discussion, and experiential exercises.
