Aboriginal Dreaming in Jungian Perspective

Guest Speaker: Professor David Tacey

We must remember that the rationalistic attitude of the West is not the only possible one and is not all-embracing, but is in many ways a prejudice and a bias that ought perhaps to be corrected.”  ~ Carl Jung

Many aspects of the Aboriginal Dreaming remain impenetrable or inscrutable to Western intellectual thought.  Most non-indigenous Australians don’t even bother to understand it because it seems so remote, so removed from reality as we know it.

But Jungian depth psychology is able to throw considerable light on the Dreaming, its meaning and purpose, and its spiritual and archetypal structures.  Once we make the link between Aboriginal ancestors and Jungian archetypes, it becomes possible to appreciate the Dreaming in a new way, at much greater depth than is usually managed by Western reason.
