"In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted" - C.G. Jung

 Coming into this particular body, and being born of these particular parents, and in such a place, and in general what we call external circumstances.  That all happenings form a unity and are spun together is signified by the fates (Moirai).  -       Plotinus, II.3.15

 

F

ate is a highly controversial concept.  In the twentieth century we associate it with a loss of control and sense of personal powerlessness.  But although we often think of fate as random, something that takes away individual choice, this was never the ancient understanding.  The ancient concept of fate evolved from a vision of the cosmos as orderly and interconnected.

 Sarah Steele, an enthusiastic member of the Jung Society for three years and graduate of Psychology and Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland, will be confronting the questions and problems of fate.  She will explore the reasons why we never lose our fear of things that appear to have been ordained before we had any say in the matter.  Drawing on symbols from myths, legends, dreams, and astrology, as well as Jungian psychological concepts, she will explore the question of, "Are we fated or are we free?".
