May 2019

Hi folks,

I’m still noticing snow high up on the Duxbury hills, but Spring has come to the village of Waterbury: crocuses and daffodils are blooming, and we are looking forward to our last course of the season:

 Making Your Kitbag Workshop: Saturday, 5/18; 10AM-12 Noon; 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $35; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909

In “Aion” Jung warned his students that “… anyone who is destined to descend into a deep pit had better set about it with all the necessary precautions rather than risk falling into the hole backwards. (Collected Works, 9ii, ¶125). This workshop helps students take those “precautions” by identifying those items, ideas and pieces of information that can support them in times of spiritual crisis. An invaluable adjunct to the spiritual journey and useful for anyone who works with his or her dreams.

This workshop offers practical tips, techniques and tools, both metaphoric and literal. Participants get an actual “kitbag” (along with its derivation and history) and items to put into it, to have for those times when something “hits” us, lest we “fall in backwards,” i.e. without having made prior preparation for those times when a crisis arises.

This is the time of the year when I begin planning for the next academic year and here are some ideas that are percolating:

Soul Tending: 9 sessions, the first Tuesday of the month, September through May

Harpies & Haridans–Women Behaving Badly: 9 sessions, the first Thursday of the month, September through May

White Privilege: 4 sessions, Wednesday evenings in September

Afterlife Journey of the Soul: 4 sessions, Wednesday evenings in October

Introduction to Astrology: 4 sessions, Wednesday evenings, Oct/November

If you have ideas for topics, or requests for courses that haven’t run in a while, let me know.

Have a wonderful Spring!
