This presentation explores with symbolic care Jung's first mandala (1916), entitled "Systema Munditotius." Its relevance for Jung's historical time, as well as for his own personal life and work, receive careful attention.
We will explore the foundation of Jung's later creativity, richly symbolized in this 1916 painting from the depths of his night sea journey. Questions concerning the pertinence of the mandala to our contemporary world chaos these 100-plus years later, are also entertained.
Slides illustrating each facet of Jung's descriptions of the mandala's vivid representations bring his experience and meaning closer to us. Discussion from participants as we digest the wealth of Jung's imagery is warmly encouraged.
