Beit Alpha Synagogue floor
Call for panelists for the World Congress of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem, August 6-10, 2017)
Proposed panel: Jewish Mysticism and the Psy-Disciplines We are putting together a proposal for one session at the World Congress of Jewish Studies focused on jewish mysticism and the psy-disciplines. We are looking for participants for a session on the relation between jewish mysticism and the psy-disciplines. We are looking for contributions discussing the influence of Jewish mystical thought on different psy-disciplines – psychology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy – in past and present, and for contributions that use perspectives of these disciplines to approach different aspects of Jewish mysticism, including mystical experiences, movements, and individuals.
