Our concept of God governs just about everything, from religious life to politics and the Church. Yet, our understanding of God is still based on ancient metaphysical principles. Here we will explore a new understanding of God in a universe that is still being born. Using the works of Carl Jung, Teilhard de Chardin and Peter Todd, we will examine the ongoing creation of God through the process of individuation. Teilhard’s ideas on theogenesis and the Christic will be discussed, as a new reality of God emerges through cosmos and personhood.
