Jung’s Guru - The Voice of Philemon:
The Seven Sermons to the Dead
The Red Book’s Conclusion
(a ZOOM Study Program)
The third and final part of Jung’s Liber Novus (The Red Book) he called Scrutinies. Jung is engaged in dialogues with his Soul and with Philemon. In his notebook, he draws a mandala, with many symbolic images. Then, one night, Jung has a vision - a “dark crowd” comes to his door and demands to be let in. They have many questions, for which Jung has no answers, and so Philemon appears and, over several nights, delivers The Seven Sermons to the Dead, describing and explaining the cosmology of Jung’s mandala.
Jung's Red Book experiences were the source material for all of his subsequent writings. They also birthed in him the experience of the Self and the process of individuation. In this study group we will contemplate Jung’s writing and how it touches our own soul and supports our life journey. To further illuminate and bring to life these readings, participants are encouraged to share their dreams, journaling, poetry, and art.
*Required: Please bring your copy of The Red Book to each class.

Healing in Depth, Part 2: Reclaiming the Center
(a ZOOM Study Program)
The four classes offered in Healing In Depth, Part 2, will look more deeply into those key points introduced in the first lecture: Healing In Depth (the Dynamic of the Gospel of Mark), May 2022.
There it was maintained that:
The overall focus for the present four sessions will be work on the following crucial Markan elements: the role of radical trust (pistis), demon possession and exorcism (including their possible modern equivalents), why (in Mark) the tomb needs to be empty, what it means to call this work a “gospel”, plus other issues as they may arise out of the discussion. Special attention will be given to Mark 11-15, Jesus' “assault” on the temple, the hard labor of breaking free (from a Past which “enslaves” us) and reclaiming the true Center of our lives.
And finally, how each of these elements may help illuminate for us our pathway toward individuation. A review of the ground covered in the first lecture, The Dynamic of the Gospel of Mark, will be a part of the workshops.
*Please bring your copy of the Gospel of Mark to each class.

Soul Medicine and Dream Incubation
Big Dreams, Oracles, and Visions in Ancient and Modern Times
(a ZOOM Workshop)
Western medicine and psychotherapy originated in ancient Greece over 3,300 years ago using holistic methodologies combined with dream questing under the guidance of Asklepios, the god of healing. It resulted in thousands of “miracle cures” to intractable conditions of body, mind, heart and spirit. Further, the ancients used theatre as communal healing ritual, oracles for life guidance, and the dialectical method of early philosophy was a basis for modern talk therapy. These practices are the foundations of archetypal psychology and available to us today.
The ancients taught that the key to healing is restoration of the soul and re-aligning with the cosmic Logos. Their practices are especially effective in enabling catharsis, transforming identity, providing life guidance, revealing destiny, reconnecting to the sacred, and providing direct healing or prescriptions through the facilitation of “big dreams.”
We will explore soul medicine and healing through dream pilgrimages and incubations, sacred theatre and philosophy. We will study ancient sanctuary practices that are the blueprints of healing today and seek big dreams and oracles for holistic healing.

Conversations with Change
(a ZOOM Workshop)
Some 3,000 years ago in China, an oracle called Change came into being. By 136BCE, it had grown into the Yijing (or I Ching); in 1949, Jung wrote the foreword to a fine new English translation; as you read this, people on every continent are consulting with Change, and finding clarity, understanding, and confidence in their choices. The tradition, the conversation with Change, has continued unbroken for millennia - but why?
Partly because of the Yijing's vast depth and subtlety - and partly because it is, at heart, an extraordinarily simple oracle, that seems to be especially friendly to beginners. To tap into its wisdom, you need only pick up a translation* and consult it for yourself.
In these two sessions, we'll cover:
No prior knowledge of the I Ching is needed, but it would help to bring a real translation. See the downloadable PDF below for a recommended translation list.
