Rebirth and Renewal

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Gathering in Phoenix Arizona for an IAJS conference during the summer of 2014 was a gamble. The desert, the heat, the barren landscape, and the nagging question whether anyone would be prepared to endure the mid-summer heat, all raised concerns about the potential success of the conference. Yet, in the Southwest where nothing grows except frustration with the climate, the topic of ‘Rebirth and Renewal’ paradoxically brought a surprising number of committed Jungians to gather at Arizona State University for three days. It felt as if the phoenix bird, as a synchronistic symbol, did arise from within the depths of the city and become embedded in the conference theme itself.
