This half-day event will explore potential improvements to our mental health and well-being through the links between Spiritism and psychology. Humanity is currently experiencing escalating levels of anxiety, depression and grief etc, due to multiple crises in the world (ecologically, economically, politically and socially). A collective transformation is much needed, such as Carl Jung’s method of ‘individuation’, which has resonances with ‘soul progression’ found in the work of Allan Kardec. A case will be made for greater collaborative links between Spiritism and psychology.
