MPP98 Carl Jung & Christianity with Jakob Lusensky

Ep. 98

On this episode I welcome Berlin-based Jungian analyst and creator of the Psychology & The Cross podcast, Jakob Lusensky. On his podcast, Jakob has been speaking with prominent Jungians and Christian theologians about the intersections of psychology and religion so I thought he’d be a great person to have on to talk about Jung’s complex relationship to Christianity.

Writer, teacher and psychologist Dr. Sharon Blackie talks with guest host Debbie Stapleton about her latest book Hagitude: Reimagining the Second Half of Life.Deftly interweaving myth, psychology and memoir, Sharon Blackie argues that menopause ushers in a rich and vibrant new phase of life, and explores the many different ways in which women can flourish during what is so often portrayed as a time of decline.Hagitude unearths the stories of the little-known but powerful elder women in European myth and folklore, inspiring readers to imagine that the last decades of our lives might be the most dynamic of all. This moving and uplifting book will inspire a new generation of female elders: women who have reclaimed their Inner Hag, matured into their own unique brand of hagitude and who are ready to pass down their deep feminine wisdom for the benefit of the wider Earth community.+++Sharon Blackie, PhD, is an award-winning writer of fiction and nonfiction and a psychologist who has specialized in neuroscience, narrative, mythology, and Celtic studies.
