In this workshop Meg-John aims to help us gain a broader understanding on the topic of gender, sexual and relationship diversity by means of an interactive Zoom workshop as a taster to gender issues.
The session will comprise a 45 minute Q&A session with a participant on a relevant set of questions; followed by opening it out for the group to ask questions, comment, and explore the topic further.
David will present a talk on Jung’s 5 Functions: The Functions of Consciousness. These functions refer to the different ways in which the conscious mind can apprehend reality. According to Jung, these are (a) Sensation, (b) Intuition, (c) Thinking and (d) Feeling. David will also invite us to explore the implications of the shadow, which operates outside of our conscious awareness as a one-sided use of one or two functions at the expense of the other.
