Jung & Art: New Course wholly online at a time of your own choosing!
Jung identified the common predicament of the artist (here standing for one engaging in any kind of material creativity from writing and sculpture to performance and filmmaking etc.) as “stuckness,” colloquially known as artistic block. Crucially he saw it are the very same problem as that which drove patients into psychotherapy. We ask for help from a therapist because we are stuck or blocked in our lives. Therefore, exciting opportunities arise in Jung’s insight that artistic blocks are psychological and vice versa. For as I show in this JungPlatform course, “Individuation through Creativity and Artmaking,” individuation is a creative practice, and is available to everyone through the activity of making art. Moreover, artists can find strange and wonderful transformative powers through individuation’s focus on the soul or psyche. https://jungplatform.com/store/individuation-through-creativity-and-art-making
