Integrity: The Human Side of Soul
June 13 – 21, 2020
A seminar by the Guild for Psychological Studies at Four Springs, California
Truth is the intent of soul and our lives are entangled in the desire of truth to become real. When soul grips us we have a choice: to respond to the call of integrity or not.
What difference does wrestling with the call of integrity make for us and for the world?
The invitation is to lay one’s totality on the line for the sake of truth, in order to find that you are not who you thought you were, but rather an embodiment of truth, blind-truth at first, seeking to be known and to become real. Staying true to truth is hazardous and dangerous, but it leads to profound transformation of us and our world.
By examining several human characters, biblical and historical, including such as Jacob’s wrestling with Esau, Job’s struggle with Yahweh, Francis Bacon’s stance against the cosmology of Medieval Christian Europe, and Carl Jung’s efforts to reframe the scientific rationality of late Modernity after the death of God, we will explore how integrity is where we are confronted by soul and where we in turn shape soul through the process of truth wrestling with truth.
More details about this seminar will come in early 2020.
