(In Buddhist teaching, a "bodhisattva" is a being who leads others to enlightenment.) Our current political climate is filled with opportunities to continue our schizoid relationship to what C.G. Jung called “Persona” and “Shadow.” But can we use this climate to heal the split,  rather than make it more permanent? We'll explore basic Jungian concepts of persona and shadow and apply them to current events.

A cartoon shows Jesus ascending into Heaven with only his feet still below the clouds. His disciples cry out, “Don’t go yet, Lord—you didn’t fix the details!” Without those details, the early community struggles to find its identity and its message. The answers vary dramatically, and the first centuries of the church present a fascinating account of a believing community believing different things.

What remains of our once-vital friendships and alliances in the West? Where does the U.S. stand now vis-à-vis China, Russia, and North Korea? Does NATO still matter? Does the U.S.?

The CG Forum offers an opportunity for open and interactive discussion with Jim Kenney (and coleagues) on a variety of timely topics. The format includes opening remarks by Jim (and guest) and then a lively Q and A segment, with about 45 minutes allotted for each part. There will always be time allowed for “off-topic” questions and discussion.

Finally, we'll speculate on the curious Trump-Kim story, the nuclear issue, and the future of the Korean peninsula.

Which of America's eleven rival nations do you hail from (Yankeedom, New Netherland, the Midlands, Tidewater, Greater Appalachia, the Deep South, New France, El Norte, the Left Coast, the Far West, or First Nation)? It's a vital and intriguing question.  Our divisions stem from the fact that the United States is a federation comprised of the whole or part of eleven regional nations, some of which truly do not see eye to eye with one another.
