October 28, 2017: A Socially Induced Dark Night of the Soul
Responding to the deeply felt spiritual ennui since the election, this Jungian- Christian workshop will attempt to address the roots of the trauma and the potential for healing. We need to come together to study, pray, form community and act to transform the darkness.
November 11, 2017 (Veterans Day): Jung, Politics, and a Religious/Spiritual Response
Carl Jung, as psychological commentator, provides a language to help us articulate what is presently happening in our 21st century world. This workshop through Jungian-Christian lenses will attempt to name the collective forces at work and suggest from our religious structures and spiritual traditions to rediscover conscience and truth.
Topics and Dates in 2018:
February 17, 2018: Discerning Social Action to Overcome Social Fear
The Voice of God within speaks to our conscience and propels us to take action. This workshop from Jungian- Christian lenses will assist us to listen deeply to our stirrings of soul. We are called to guild the reign of God in the midst of a world filled with fear and division.
April 7, 2018: Birthing Transpersonal Hope in the Center of the Shadow
Hope is not ego optimism. When the collective shadows are at their darkest points is when hope is born in the soul, and has the opportunity for birth. This Jungian-Christian workshop will contemplatively gaze into the mystery of social transformation through an encounter with transpersonal hope. All programs run from 10 a.m. until 3:30, and include lunch.
Presenter: Don Bisson, FMS
