The New School for Analytical Psychology invites you to attend our four-month seminar series:

Ominous Transitions:
Ongoing Reflections on Finding our Ethical Bearings in Today’s World

© United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Used by permission.

The tone of collective discourse has rapidly degenerated, damaging the forms and rituals that give coherence to our lives, cultures and professional disciplines contributing to a sense of communal and global unrest.  In these intimate Saturday morning seminars our desire is to nourish a spirit of reflection rather than repeating the sounds of panic and alarm. Stepping back from the present situation, we will reflect on the current moment through post-disciplinary lenses including philosophy, theology, history, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and the arts of music, poetry and literature.  Together we will seek new perspectives that may help us move into an open future.
