Memories, Dreams and Activism

Reflecting on a Decade of Analysis and Activism

In a pivotal moment of intellectual convergence, the Analysis and Activism (A&A) Jungian movement came to life in 2014 during its inaugural conference in London, meticulously organized by visionaries Andrew Samuels and Emilija Kiehl. Little did they know that this gathering would spark the flame of a transformative journey, setting the stage for four more conferences (2014, 2015, 2017, 2020, 2023) that would shape the landscape of analytical psychology and socio-cultural activism.

As the A&A Jungian movement approaches its 10th anniversary in 2024, the organizers are gearing up for a grand celebration—a virtual symposium that promises to be the capstone event of a decade marked by intellectual exploration and meaningful societal contributions.

The movement, born from the shared passion of individuals committed to integrating Jungian analysis with real-world activism, has flourished over the years. The conferences, serving as crucibles of thought and catalysts for change, have drawn together a community of scholars, practitioners, and activists dedicated to exploring the intersection of psychology and social transformation.

In anticipation of the milestone anniversary, the A&A Jungian movement is excited to announce its 6th conference—an online gathering that aims to bring together all those who have actively contributed to the organization of the first five conferences. This unique event will not only serve as a celebration of the movement's growth but also as a reflection on the evolution of Jungian thought in the context of contemporary social issues.

The virtual symposium promises to be a dynamic platform for reconnecting, sharing insights, and exploring the ways in which Jungian analysis and activism continue to intersect and inform one another.

As the movement looks back on its journey, it becomes evident that the A&A conferences have transcended the boundaries of traditional academic gatherings. They have become crucibles for interdisciplinary dialogue, fostering collaborations that bridge the gap between theory and praxis. The 6th conference, a testament to this legacy, will build upon the foundation laid by its predecessors, offering a space for critical reflection, visionary discussions, and the forging of new paths for the decade ahead.

The Analysis and Activism Jungian movement, with its upcoming 10th-anniversary celebration, stands as a testament to the enduring power of Jungian psychology to inspire meaningful change in the world. As the virtual conference approaches, participants can look forward to a jubilant reunion of minds, a celebration of the movement's collective achievements, and a recommitment to the ongoing journey of analytical exploration and societal transformation.

The idea of the conference was curated and created by Stefano Carpani.
