8.00pm Guest Speaker
Synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence, is one of Jung's central concepts. It relates to an uncanny timing of events that compellingly seems to go beyond chance. After Jung, Chris Mackey believes that synchronicity can act as a guide along our life path, helping us through challenging times and nudging us toward self-fulfilment. Chris illustrates these themes using psychotherapy case studies as well as his own personal experience. He also describes brain science findings relevant to synchronicity as well as practical suggestions for working with it, from journaling and symbol analysis to dream interpretation and ideas for accessing flow. He argues that synchronicity has a crucial role to play in helping us go within and tap into our intuitive and spiritual selves.
Chris Mackey is a Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society, and a clinical and counselling psychologist with 35 years’ psychotherapy experience in public and private mental health settings. He is the principal psychologist at Chris Mackey & Associates in Geelong, and has regularly presented clinical research at national and international psychology conferences.
Chris is author of the recently released book,
"Synchronicity: Empower your life with the gift of coincidence"
