Happy New Year! May this year see lots of positive happenings, less stress, more progress and personal growth! Toward that end, the Jungian Center offers several programs in January, and a reminder of a very special program in June.
Applied Symbology, Wednesdays, Jan. 3,10,17,24 & 31st (Feb 7th, snow day); 7-9PM; 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $75; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909.
An advanced course investigating how symbols are used in alchemy, Jung’s psychology, dream work, astrology, literature, numerology, music, and other areas of our culture. The course examines the discipline of iconography, and the four levels on which symbols can be interpreted. Reading and discussion of Jung’s essays on symbols are also included.
Women’s Biography, Thursdays, Jan. 4th, 7-9PM; 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $10/session; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909.
Our biography for January is on Anne Hutchinson; Eve LaPlante’s American Jezebel. New York: Harper & Row, 2004. Find out why this remarkable woman was called “the American Jezebel,” and why both the river and parkway in New York State are named after her. The book (written by a lineal descendant of Anne Hutchinson) can be purchased (for a discount for our class) at Bridgeside Books in Waterbury.
Save the Date–Special Program!
Coming this June (2nd & 3rd ) is “Jung and Music: An Introduction to Archetypal Music Psychotherapy” presented by Joel Kroeker, a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst specializing in AMP (Archetypal Music Therapy) from Victoria, British Columbia. Joel will be giving a lecture on Saturday evening, June 2nd, followed by a workshop “A Jungian Approach to Exploring Our Inner Landscape through Music and Sound,” on Sunday the 3rd. Some of the topics Joel will cover include: Jung’s relationship with music, musical dreams and non-rational creativity, applying Jungian approaches to working with music, musical active imagination and how archetypes, shadow and anima/animus images show up in sound. He will also offer clinical examples of how the transcendent function operates through “musical mandalas.” This is a learning opportunity you won’t want to miss!
I hope you have a wonderful month, and a good start to the New Year!
