States of mind such as envy, hatred, grief and loneliness cause enormous suffering. Many such forms of mental pain are difficult to put into words. We will discuss some of the sources of these painful emotions and suggest ways in which they may be approached from a depth psychological point of view. The second part of the workshop will discuss the problem of evil from a depth psychological point of view.
