Political Panel: What is the Time We are In? [LECTURE]
November 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm MST
by Francis Hatfield, Larry Rayburn & Barry Williams
Continuing our Institute’s November tradition, we convene our annual panel of analysts—Barry Williams, Frances Hatfield, and Larry Rayburn—to take stock of our national and collective moment. Has anything changed in the past year? The ramping up of the presidential elections is beginning, moving from its constant background to the front of our National Psyche. Is there anything different in this particular political moment? Can we detect psychic shifts, or are we caught in what Freud named a repetition compulsion, replaying the same story over and over? Asking these questions requires that we face ourselves, our own subjective positions—not just what is happening “out there” in the “world.”
In addressing the crises around the globe, we will attempt to hold a space and reflect on these questions, even as we work and hope for solutions and resolution of the many urgent problems we face.

LARRY RAYBURN, MA, is a Jungian analyst practicing in Santa Fe, New Mexico and a member of the C. G. Jung Institute there. He trained through the Texas seminar of the Inter Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. Larry is interested in the psychological role of the father, and in the theories of play and psychic energy. His Jungian thesis was an exploration of the alchemical opus contra naturam, or work against nature, as expressed in the flow and counter-flow of human life, the natural world, and clinical practice.
