Jungian Arts-Based Research & the Nuclear Enchantment of New Mexico Webinar, Feb 11

with Susan Rowland & Joel Weishaus, Feb 11

Saturday, February 11, 2023
10:00 am – 1:00 pm (Mountain Time)

Dr. Susan Rowland and Joel Weishaus will present on their book Jungian Arts-Based Research and the Nuclear Enchantment of New Mexico (2021), which offers something new to the Jungian community. While arts-based research is now established in the social sciences, this new research paradigm has not yet explored the potential of a Jungian frame. Similarly, Jungians have not fully come to terms with the potential of art for doing therapy of the collective.

Joel Weishaus will present his Jungian arts-based research epic, which provides experiential treatment for the nuclear complex that emerges from New Mexico.

Susan Rowland will present her JABR novel, The Sacred Well Murders, which explores the effect of climate related trauma and the yearning for a more indigenous, nature-based religion. Attendees who might like to read the novel beforehand can purchase it through Amazon:
