Astrology and Jung- Evoking Wonder, Supporting Individuation, Restoring Meaning with Dan Keusal 

Towards a Jungian Wisdom School of the Heart:  Seminar 

March 9, 23, 30, and April 6, 2024

Saturdays, 10-11:30 am

ONLINE 

“All are syllables of the great word that is very slowly spoken by the shining of the stars.” ~Ursula Le Guin
Astrology, which may be the oldest form of psychology, offers the modern world 1) a return to enchantment, 2) guidance for our individual and collective journeys, and 3) a restored sense of our place in the cosmos. This Wisdom School class will begin with a look at the sense of wonder inspired by the night sky that gave birth to astrology. It will then provide a detailed overview of what astrology is and how it works (including the essential role of consciousness and freedom in empowering wise choices). We will also explore astrology’s many connections to Jungian psychology. Finally, we’ll do a deep dive into one birth chart to give participants an actual experience of the valuable guidance that astrology can offer.

Joanne Halverson Ph.D. – Eco-Wisdom: Reclaiming an Integral Lifeworld

 

Friday, March 15th,  2024

7 – 9 PM PST

ONLINE LECTURE

Do you think we are not Nature, that we are different from nature…?” C.G. Jung
To Jung, the human psyche is situated within the world psyche, and the entire universe is soulful. Our split from nature and the numinous truncates our lives and wounds our souls. We hunger for meaning beyond materiality, patriarchy, and rationality in a dis-membered world. From numinous realms such as dreams, symbols, signs, and synchronicities to the innate wisdom of embodiment and the rhythms of the earth, lifeworld domains are like nested ecosystems, enhancing one another while engendering individuation.  Lifeworlds merge into a multiple-dimensional ecosystem, like a three-dimensional mandala. From an indigenous perspective, individuation is rooted in these realms and serves more than the individual. An authentic self serves unity in diversity. Eco-wisdom and Indigenous knowledge enhances and enlarges Jung’s concepts of individuation, archetypes, the numinous, and the collective unconscious. The Coast Salish matriarchal cultures offer ancient proven wisdom on restoring and tending a whole life with a whole self.

Joanne Halverson Ph.D.– Reclaiming Radiant Interconnection (Workshop)

 

Saturday, March 16th,  2024

1 – 4  PM PST

ONLINE WORKSHOP

This workshop is rooted in ancient, personal, and mythic stories. With permission from a traditional Coast Salish storyteller, pertinent teaching stories will be told that serve as touchstones and jumping-off places for reflecting on our place in the World Soul. The guiding tenants of stories from an indigenous matriarchy are equality, respect, acknowledgment, inter-being, and generosity. In a similar way, our personal stories of signs, dreams, initiations, and nature, guide and connect us. Indigenous stories engender reflection, questions, and fresh perspectives on individuation, the collective unconscious, archetypes, and the World Soul. For example, the Samish people embraced eight genders. Each gender became recognized by an archetypal pattern — the healer, the ceremonialist, etc., — and each contributed to the tribe. In this workshop we will delve deeper into the causes of despair and dismemberment, hyper-individualism, hierarchy, and disconnection from nature and we will seek ways to reclaim radiant interconnection through story.

Jung Library Study Group

In person study group occurring the first Wednesday of every month starting, September 6th.

Noon – 2:00pm

Nancy Alvord Library at Good Shepherd Center, Room 222. 

Please join members Tamara Walker and Lael Cassidy for a new study group, which will meet the first Wednesday of each month from 12-2pm in the library. 
The intention is to invite the voice of C.G. Jung into the room, and to provide a space to reflect on them with our whole selves. We will be working with the text of Jung’s Dream Analysis Seminars of 1928-30.  All reading will happen in the meeting. Participants can read outside of class, but this is not expected nor required. Reading materials will be provided, and art supplies will be available for those who wish, so that the unconscious feels invited to participate. There will also be time to discuss–to share art and other feeling/thinking responses to the work. This event is free to whoever would like to attend.
Based on Jung’s (1984) Dream Analysis: Notes on the Seminar Given in 1928-1930.  The group is open to the public with a suggested donation of $10 per session.  For more information, contact Lael: laelk@comcast.net
