Time & Psychoanalysis
The concept of Time in Psychoanalytic thinking, and particularly in C. G. Jung's opus. How the concept of time developed throughout Jung’s work; how it relates to his theoretical breakthroughs and his understanding of the workings of the psyche.
Synchronicity & Time
What precisely is the function of time (i.e. of chronos) in the acausal connecting principle of synchronicity? By exploring the role of time in Jung’s theory we can gain a deep understanding of the principle and the way it relates to our everyday experience.
Education as a Transformative Tool
How education can facilitate the teaching and implementation of peace, mental health, creativity, critical thinking, personality development, etc. at an individual and societal level.
Collective Shadow & Collective Unconscious
The split of the Cypriot psyche into ‘Greek Cypriot’ and ‘Turkish Cypriot’: How we can understand, conceptualize and transcend it. Analytical psychology can provide the language and the means for such an endeavor that reaches beyond our personal consciousness.
