THE SACRAMENT OF DISOBEDIENCE
Tuesday, April 4, 7:30 pm
IN-PERSON PRESENTATION AT ST. GEORGE'S EPISCOPAL, 4600 ST. CHARLES, NOLA
Presenter: D. Scott Stanley, PhD, LPC, LMFT
The role of sacraments within religious settings is to mediate the Divine. In Analytic Psychology, individuation is the process or journey of the Self unfolding. Jung likened the experience of the Self as a religious or numinous experience. Using the fairytale, “The devil’s sooty brother,” found in the Grimms’ brothers collection (#100), we will explore the role of disobedience as sacramental, that is, the act which mediates the Self through individuation. I invite you to read the fairytale before the seminar, paying attention to the moment when the hero breaks his deal with the devil, that moment when he can’t not follow his impulse. Think of the moments in your story when you found yourself in a similar place, where you couldn’t not take action or follow your impulse.. I look forward to being with you in April.
