Jung Reads the Bible: A Jungian Perspective on Spiritual Truths, Wednesdays, March 1,8,15,22; 7-9PM EST/EDT; $60 (via PayPal or check in $US); to register, email us: email@example.com
At age 11 Carl Jung had his first experience of God, in a vision that he remembered for the rest of his life. As the son of a pastor in the Swiss Reformed Church, Jung grew up immersed in the Bible and recognized religio as one of the five instincts in human beings. In this course, we bring Jung’s understanding and interpretation to bear on multiple Bible verses and concepts like the numinosum, God, the Devil, evil, religion and perfection. Participants should possess a Bible, as most of our discussions will focus on specific verses and concepts. Other readings drawn from Jung’s works will be provided.

Individuation is a key concept in Jung’s psychology, being both a process and a goal of the work of becoming conscious. Using over a dozen exercises, assessment instruments and dream work, the 8-week course aims to foster participants’ familiarity with their psyche and its unique language, while introducing various components of the individuation process.
The History and Mystery of the Labyrinth; Saturday, April 29 & May 6th ; 4-6PM EDT; $60 (via PayPal or check in $US made out to Kathryne Delorme); to register, email us: email@example.com
The labyrinth is an ancient archetype and metaphor for the spiritual journey, the path of life, and individuation. The history stretches back over 4,000 years in cultures worldwide and has been a theme in both art and literature. A revival of the labyrinth as spiritual practice began in the 1990’s, and its use is being embraced by many in our fragmented world who long for connection to a sacred center both personal and collective. We will explore the ways that labyrinth walking can support our wholeness in times of challenge, change, as well as celebration. Participants will receive a labyrinth image before the class begins. Led by Kathryne Delorme, who has M.A. degrees in Transpersonal Psychology, Counseling, and Depth Psychology. She has facilitated transformative arts workshops and labyrinth walks for counseling and recovery centers, hospice, women’s groups and meditation circles. She is a Veriditas-trained Labyrinth Facilitator.
