Went to a Jungian Conference today in Chicago. Love Chicago. Jungian group not so much. Topic was supposed to be about the Healing Power of Art. I think the topic sort of got addressed but maybe was over my head. We covered symbol, but not how it heals, we covered Jung's review of Ulysses-in depth, how it is meaningless, thus, destructively, we make meaning from it. Covered art therapy, the process, covered films and whether the viewing counts as witnessing, or offers cathartic release. It was all very cerebral. Seemed like beating a dead horse with analytic academic inspection.
