Mind Matters 3: Desire & Entanglement
February 9, 2013
This year’s conference theme, Desire & Entanglement, takes a fundamental concern and examines it through many different lenses: What exactly is desire? What should we desire? Who should we desire? What does it mean to live in a culture of consumer marketing where needless desire powers the engine of prosperity? Desire exists at the nexus of economics, sex, personal growth, and spirituality. It even paradoxically enfolds our desire to be free of the power of desire itself.
The speakers for this Mind Matters conference were:
Dr. John Vervaeke, Ph.D.
Dr. Jordan Peterson, Ph.D., C.Psych.
Dr. Paul Fulton, Ed.D
Dr. Jose Cabezon
Organized by the Buddhism & Psychology Student Union and the U of T Jungian Society.
