Joe Cambray – Synchronicity: an Emerging Vision to Guide Us

How can you recognize synchronous events in your life? What can you learn from these events? How does synchronicity connect you with your purpose?

Friday, Mar 19, 2021
7pm – 8:30pm MST

This lecture will attempt to uncover the nature and origin of Jung’s concept of synchronicity. Pacifica Graduate Institute President/CEO Joe Cambray will begin his lecture with Jung’s discovery of the synchronicity principle documented in the Red Book. Cambray will also show numerous examples of how Jung’s theories, practices, and clinical methods influenced the current field of Complexity theory. The Complexity theory works with a paradox similar to Jung’s synchronicity—symmetry is as important as symmetry breaking for “emergence” to occur. We will explore what makes synchronicity so relevant for modern life.

Jung’s synchronicity can be understood as meaningful coincidences that has the potential to guide us in life. It is also an invitation to accept the miraculous forces that move underneath our everyday activities.

In this lecture, you will learn how Carl Jung came up with the concept of synchronicity and how it opened the door to the possibility of finding meaning in random events. You will discover that synchronicity is a deep concept, one that goes beyond its practical application in everyday life to exploring the very nature of reality. You will see that the world is no longer governed by the simple laws of cause and effect but that it is more complex and miraculous. Here, reality is interconnected, as are psyche and matter. In this world, there are calls and invitations, and meaningful coincidences that help in leading one’s life.

Come and revel in this meaningful talk about coincidences!
