The Dynamic of Ancestral Inheritance

Jung was not only concerned about the dead in his personal material but also the seminal idea of ancestral inheritance. For him, this began with the ‘voices of the ‘Unanswered, Unresolved, and Unredeemed’ seeming to inhabit the psyche of successive generations. Such influences leave indentations, spaces, or even a mark, as Jung calls it, and often interfere with the destiny of future generations. This presentation will discuss what this dynamic lookjavascript:void(0);s like and how it plays out.
