About the Event

Join us for a Lunch & Learn event, presented by The Jung Center's Community for Conscious Aging. Bring your lunch to an hour that always provides food for thought.

Can we prepare for death? To some degree, we can plan for the material effects of the dying process, through living wills, inheritance plans, prepaid mortuary services, and other tools. When it comes to the soul, however, we struggle mightily to hold death in our awareness - individually and as a society. In this conversation, we will explore the contemporary social vacuum around death and dying, and wonder, with Jung, what might be possible if we understand death as the goal of life.

Sean Fitzpatrick, PhD, LPC, holds master's degrees in religious studies (Rice University) and clinical psychology (University of Houston - Clear Lake) and received his doctorate in psychology through Saybrook University's program in Jungian studies. Sean is a psychotherapist in private practice and has been employed at The Jung Center since 1997. His recent book The Ethical Imagination: Exploring Fantasy and Desire in Analytical Psychology is available in The Jung Center bookstore. His research interests also include the intersection of psychology and spirituality, and vicarious trauma and the self-care needs of helping professionals and social service providers.
