Do we look to community to replace individual growth?

Do we grow as individuals to make community?

Jung levels the challenge that we look to community for the kind of self-actualization we can only achieve through inner work...and I am conflicted because I've tended to feel that inner work towards actualization is impossible without the kind of community I have generally considered to be lacking (think Putnam's Bowling Alone).  Also that it might be pointless/worthless...  If the important things in life really center around connections to others, how do I find meaning in solitary and/or internal experiences?
