At our base here in central Vermont summer is upon us–in theory: the weatherman predicts possible frost “in the colder hollows” even as we are about to bid May goodbye as I write this. In the U.S. we observe “Memorial Day” in late May, the “unofficial start of summer,” when people usually crowd the beaches, hold barbecues and enjoy dips in lakes, pools and rivers. Perhaps–for the polar bear types among residents and visitors to Vermont this year.
This is the time of the year when, rather than dipping a toe in ice water, I prepare for the Jungian Center annual Board of Directors meeting, one piece of which involves my getting the stats about our web site from our hosting service. This week, when I contacted InMotion Hosting, I was astonished to learn that the site got over 5 million “hits” since last June–probably a reflection of the pandemic, with people stuck at home, “surfing the web.”
The only program we are running through the summer is a 3-evening discussion series:
Tools for Empowerment: An Evening Discussion Series, Wednesdays, 6/2,7/7 & 8/4; 7-9PM (Eastern Daylight time zone); via Zoom; free; to register, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Registrants will be sent all the reading materials–22 short essays drawn from the Center’s blog postings.
I will be contacting the JCSS faculty soon to get their course offerings for the 2021-2022 year. The full descriptions of our Fall courses will be posted in our newsletter of August 1st. We will continue to run our programs via Zoom.
In the meantime I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer (winter, for those in the southern hemisphere).
