JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVES ON DEMOCRACY,  
POWER AND ILLUSION IN CONTEMPORARY POLITICS

and a livestream option for viewing remotely

DAVID BROWER CENTER
2150 ALLSTON WAY
BERKELEY, CA


Are geopolitics worse in our time than in previous times? It certainly feels to many that this is the case and that things are getting more fragmented, partisan, elitist and founded on illusion than before. The relationship between power and its inequities and the hope of democracy is fraught with difficulties and anxieties. This conference brings together two important strands of the evolving relationship between Jungian ideas and political and social issues. First, the  C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco has presented conferences on the presidency every four years since 2000 at the time of national elections. The 2020 conference will be held just a few weeks before the election.The second project is the groundbreaking series of Analysis and Activism conferences organized with the support of the International Association for Analytical Psychology. This conference will be the fourth of its kind, following previous events in London, Rome and Prague.

THE LIVESTREAM OPTION: Because travel to the U.S. may be cost-prohibitive or difficult and in the spirit of offering a “green” alternative, we are offering a live video stream of all the presentations with the exception of the social dreaming matrix, the movement workshop and the film. Simply register using the link above according to your price tier and you will be sent a URL close to the conference that will deliver a live streaming video. You only need a computer with audio and an internet connection that has enough bandwidth to handle the video data. The video files will also be made available to view at a later date.
