Jung and Spirituality

A Six Part Lecture Series with David Tacey

Sponsored by the Jung Society of Melbourne

November 9, 16, 23 & 30 and December 7 & 14 7:30 – 9 pm AEST

A series of talks exploring the applications and ramifications of Jung’s psychospiritual theory.

Jung claimed that a spiritual life lies buried in the unconscious and could be dug up and brought before consciousness with therapeutic results. He used this method with individuals and felt the same method could be applied to societies. Thus Jung’s ideas, derived from his clinical setting, could be applied beyond the clinic to the world at large.

Jung believed that rationality and hubris prevented many in the modern world from acknowledging the spiritual aspects of our lives, and repressing the spiritual (Jung) was as harmful as repressing the sexual (Freud). His psychology was the first in the modern era to insist on the importance of spirituality in mental health and as a key element in psychotherapy.

What Jung argued seemed incredible at the time, when science was confident about its belief in a rational world, but as this confidence has waned, and researchers have discovered the importance of spirituality in healthcare, Jung’s ideas are becoming more accepted.

David Tacey PhD is a writer and public intellectual who works across the fields of spirituality, religious studies, analytical psychology, literature and philosophy. He is a specialist in Jungian studies and has edited The Jung Reader and co-edited The Idea of the Numinous.

Blossoming in the Desert

Silent Retreat for Advent Online

5th - 10th December 2021 

Facilitated by Madeline Duckett rsm and Robyn Fitzgerald 

This Advent, we will walk the path taught to us by John the Baptist who had learned to empty himself so completely, to be "empty and bare as the desert"  in which he lived, and where he discovered and enjoyed's God's birthing within himself. In the subtle beauty and the colourful hues of the silence of the desert, we will create the necessary quiet to prepare our hearts for the birthing of the Word, personally and communally. 

The cost of the retreat is $350.00and includes daily teachings, guided meditations and spiritual direction. Recordings of the material will be made available each evening. A deposit of $100.00 is encouraged by the Oct 8th, with final payment of $250.00 due November 8th.

You are warmly invited to contact Robyn Fitzgerald at for further information.
