    It's easy to forgive people after they've been caught.

  • Sharon DiLeo

    brothers and sisters--more egalitarian

  • Holly Esch

    Not if the victim was your child.

  • Donna May

    Bonnie, re your question re how to use story around the tragic events:

  • Skip Conover

    Especially good if you can put the videos on the site.

  • Sharon DiLeo

    religion speaking.. Language of forgiveness

  • Zach Tollen

    Easier, at least. Forgiveness is overrated in my experience.

  • Sharon DiLeo

    I agree, Zach

  • Holly Esch

    Not to the one giving it.

  • Zach Tollen

    Good to know there's support on this limb Sharon.

  • Skip Conover

    When people forgive so easily and quickly, what is happening in their Shadow? Whisper who dares! (This is a rhetorical comment, not requiring response.)

  • Donna May

    I am thinking of what South Africa did after the end of Aprartheid. The people effected by people via the system, were allowed to tell their stories of what happened to them, how the others' behaviors effected them. It was an important part of the healing for the individuals and the nation.

  • Sharon DiLeo

    i am sure there are others..

  • indeed, donna

  • Holly Esch

    Why are we assuming that forgiving is "easy?"

  • Skip Conover

    Donna May That was obviously useful, but it's not a panacea. I think if we were to ask Susan Scott or other South Africans today, you would find that a LOT of healing is still to be done; as is the case in the American South--obviously.

  • Holly Esch

    Truly forgiving is a serious psychological shift.

  • Donna May

    Skip, nothing is a panacea.

  • Skip Conover

    Quite so!

  • Sharon DiLeo

    i think that forgiveness is derived from religious dictums and carries with it the notion that it is the 'right' thing to do...

  • culturalbrainwashing

  • Holly Esch

    The New York Times LOVES to terrorize 1. New grads 2. Workers over 50 3. Women over 35

  • Sharon DiLeo

    cultural brain washing

  • Donna May

    Eva speaks truth here. Psychology means "the study of soul." Completely lost in most therapeutic and academic use of the word.

  • Skip Conover

    Holly Esch I think people outside this group need to hear that loud and clear; time and again!

  • Sharon DiLeo

    i think the NYT is way to conservative. There are far better newspapers that speak truth

  • 10:27 AM
  • Holly Esch

    BTW, there a pro Cognitive Behavioral Therapy op Ed on the New York Times asking whether you really need a therapist anymore with all the new mental health software out there now.

  • Eva Rider

    This is a tragedy

  • Aleksandar Malecic

    Heidegger meditated his way into Nazism

  • Sharon DiLeo

    once people broaden their points of reference... The flood gates will flow

  • Craig Chalquist, PhD

    Look up "Heidegger's Ragnarok" ; )

  • Holly Esch

    "Curing" depression is as simple as performing mental exercises promoted by a program.

  • It's like going to the game!

  • gym!

  • Sharon DiLeo

    there is a real need to put forth other op-eds

  • Holly Esch

    The New York Times op Ed page has a series called "Couch," featuring essays by practicing therapists.

  • Sharon DiLeo

    thanks everyone

  • Zach Tollen

    B'bye!

  • Jesse Masterson

  • Eva Rider

  • 10:33 AM
  • Sharon DiLeo

    transarency...interesting

  • 10:34 AM
  • Jesse Masterson

    I look forward to continuing this conversation with many of you! Such range of experiences and knowledge is wonderful!

  • 10:36 AM
  • Skip Conover

    For the record: I am not a clinical psychologist, nor do I have any interest in becoming a therapist. Like many, I have come to Dr. Jung's work through a circuitous route, that goes back to 1987. My personal independent study is relatively deep, ongoing, and expected to last a lifetime.

  • Zach Tollen

    Skip: Same here.

  • Donna May

    Skip, I always enjoy your writings and contributions to the field.

  • Thanks for being here today Zach!

  • Bonnie Bright

    Thank you all so much for your wonderful contributions to the conversation here. I feel lucky to be part of such an amazing tribe.

  • Zach Tollen
