Inspired by the peaceful beauty of this place and its ongoing Benedictine tradition, we want to explore potential links between the monastic practice of “ora et labora”—“pray and work”—and one of Jung’s particular ideas about the challenge of individuation: How do we manifest the Self or the “god within us” in our daily lives, incarnating it in our concrete deeds (C.G. Jung, CW7, §399)? How might we ground our action in the spirit while allowing our spiritual practices to be informed by our acts? While facing the urgent issues of our own uncertain times—including the ecological crisis, widespread wars, proliferation and intrusion of technology and fundamentalisms—Jungian psychology offers a rope to hold tightly, as we plunge into the depths of our own souls. With grace, might we discover or retrieve the light that illuminates our path, radiating through our own practice, relationships, and community?
