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.

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 Day
In this two-session seminar, we will study selected papers by C.G. Jung and others that elucidate key concepts in Jung’s perspective on the psyche.
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.
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.
Jungian Psychology for Everyday Life is a year-long study of key concepts in Analytical Psychology as developed by C. G. Jung and expanded on by post-Jungians.
In this third year, we will extend our explorations of depth-oriented Jungian approaches to life striving for personal transformation, establishing a dialogue between consciousness and the unconscious, authentic expression, increasing self-knowledge, and deepening of meaning in the service of psychological growth.
Using the mythic power of cinema to explore authentic elderhood through a depth psychological lens.
ACAUSAL CONNECTIONS IN ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY AND MODERN PHYSICS: QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT AND SYNCHRONICITY
For a century, physicists have wrestled with the question of what makes the reality we perceive, given that quantum descriptions are indefinite. Spatially separated events may be correlated, without the possibility of causation. It turns out that at a microscopic level, objects are not separate but inextricably entwined, part of a Unus Mundus.
How do you work with dreams in clinical practice? Does it differ from one dream to the next, or from one patient to another? Does the dream change in either the telling or in the hearing? This two-session seminar is offered to clinicians to deepen their approach to working with dreams.
This image-rich presentation will weave the story of the long recovery from a severe heart attack with 20 years of art, stonework, dreams, and Jungian commentary. The work will be related to alchemical processes, and the symbolism of stones, spirals and labyrinths.
