Surrender is an inner movement which is central to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother's teachings. It is often painful when done unconsciously, but as a conscious practice it may become a joyful path to liberation and union. In this talk, we will look at aspects of C. G. Jung's inner life from Integral Psychology's perspective on sacrifice and surrender, as well as considering clinical applications in analytic work.


Presenter: Richard Stein, M.D. is a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst who has been in private practice in San Francisco for the last 25 years. He is on the training faculty of the San Francisco Jung Institute, and formerly on the adjunct faculty of CIIS. He first visited the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry in 1973, at the time of Mother's passing.
