“ One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” — C. G. Jung In these challenging, polarizing times we are called to draw from creative, healing energies from deeper parts of the Self. Dreams, imagination, and embodied knowing offer profound resources — personally, culturally, and from the timeless collective unconscious that connects us to one another, to all of life, and to the creative intelligence that informs us all. Transformation is an…Find out more »
When is the last time someone told you that listening to a dream can help a patient in the midst of a suicidal crisis or a schizophrenic decompensation? C. G. Jung developed his key concepts in the course of his training and early work, first in institutional and then private-practice psychiatry, yet psychiatrists today often don't realize how much they can still learn from Jung's version of medical psychology. This "taster" program will feature psychiatrists who had Jungian supervision and analysis…Find out more »

As one looks back one sees a pattern unfolding, much like the plot of a novel, in which events that seemed entirely unintended turn out to have been central to the composition. Who composed the plot? C. G. Jung calls this guidance system the archetype of the Self, which is one’s full potentiality, present at birth and guiding one to adulthood and beyond.Find out more »
C. G. Jung believed there can be no individuation unless we consciously live in our body. He stated that nature wants him to be simply man, but a man conscious of what he is and what he is doing. F. M. Alexander focuses on both of these goals; primarily by learning how to allow consciousness to live in our body, joining our life energies, psyche, instincts and spirit, all of which already live there. Alexander's work provides a long-proven means of learning how we can allow the wisdom and natural creativity of our body to reconnect us with all of these as one. Alexander and Jung believed that by allowing this unity of body, instinct, psyche, spirit and life energies we can learn how to live and function in health and healing across our lifespan, as nature wants us to.Find out more »
A call to adventure! A return to in-depth exploration of C. G. Jung's ideas in The Red Book In our current climate of information saturation, cynicism, and incendiary politics, The Red Book stands out as an unapologetic call to meaning, interiority, and the development of the inner person. Jung's personal encounter with chaos and madness, through a journey into the imaginal, was the lifeblood of his conceptual framework, one that he further refined in the Collected Works. Sonu Shamdasani, editor…Find out more »
In a time when Mother Earth is threatened and threatening our lives and habitats with fire, flood, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcanoes, we need Her poets to remind us who we are and where we come from—Earthlings made of Her red clay. To worship our Earth as a Goddess, to know Her as a living being, is to return to the wisdom of our ancestors who knew, along with Jung, that the Earth has a soul. Reading the poets of Earth Magic, writing under their influence, offers us a way back to the “Unus Mundus”—the One World— and weaves our souls and our writings into the tapestry of all creation. The poets we will read are Aimée Nezhukumatathil, Ross Gay, and Lucille Lang DayFind out more »
