COURSE DESCRIPTION

...we will listen anew to our souls.


Soul is calling out to us. We are not listening. Busyness has overtaken our lives. We look at our iPhones, our computers, our emails and tweets. We don't have time to look at the wild flowers in the woods, the star-studded sky at night. We don't have time to appreciate soulfulness.
 
In this four-part course, we will listen anew to our souls. We will see how Jung found his soul in the dark, in the unconscious, how she led him forward toward wholeness, the journey in the Red Book. We will find anew our souls and listen to them within ourselves, our relationships, the natural world. We will practice active imagination as we dialogue with them, in journaling and drawing. We will shine the light of our souls into the world around us.
 
There will be handouts with excerpts from C.G. Jung, also from Plato, Hildegard, Meister Eckhart, Rilke, Merton, Moore, Estes and others. At the end of each class, a writing exercise will be suggested to let the lesson take root in our lives.

What do people have to say



MARY | PROGRAM PARTICIPANT | FRANCE

"...a sense of inner and outer renewal."

A deeply life enriching course. I feel such a sense of inner and outer renewal. You're a very gifted teacher who provides rich content - marvelously illustrating major points with texts from excellent sources - while remaining lovingly, sharply attentive to participants' needs.



SUSAN | BROOKLYN | PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"...spiritual and intellectual nourishment."

I rejoice in the way you masterfully synthesize so many sources to create a living, creative experience for your students.
Your seminar was a tour de force, and I shall be feasting on it for a long time. Thank you for the spiritual and intellectual nourishment you have brought into my life over many decades. And for the hope you brought to all of us this week! 

What you will get


>> Video recording of each lesson so you'll have the information easily accessible
>> Audio recording of each lesson to download on your digital devices and listen at your convenience
>> Discussion Board where you can leave your comments and share your ideas
>> Transcripts of all lectures. We’ve designed your transcripts with clear formatting, space for you to take notes, and helpful highlighted quotes so you’ll have the information easily accessible.

HOW THE TRANSCRIPT IS HELPFUL

The transcript makes it easier to integrate new concepts.
You can also go back and double-check quotes and names that are mentioned.
Having the transcripts allows you to make your notes on your understanding of the ideas rather than transcribing the lesson.
Some people simply learn better by reading than by listening or watching.
