In this presentation, Wendy will talk about her own journey with writing, what led her to first begin publishing her blog, Writings From Wild Soul, and then the print edition. She will share what has most influenced her writing in recent years, particularly from depth psychology and experiences in the natural world. She will read selections from her book and accompany these readings with a slide show of her photographs.

Wendy Sarno lives and writes in St. Louis, Missouri where she facilitates circles for spiritual deepening, and leads writing groups in the exploration and collecting of individual stories. She has been publishing her reflective essays, poetry and photographs on two blog sites, Writings From Wild Soul and Listening to Stones, for a number of years. She finds the deepest joy in wandering on the wild earth while letting a poem lead to a closer engagement with the Numinous, with the Land and the deep self. Wendy is mother of two and grandmother of five. Her work has been published in the online magazine Written River: A Journal of EcoPoetics and in a print collection entitled Rebearth: Conversations with a World Ensouled. She lives and wanders with her husband, retired geologist Jim Swinehart. Writings From Wild Soul is Wendy’s first book.

 Suffering and Evil from a Depth Psychological Perspective
Colloquium - Presented by Lionel Corbett, MD

October 4, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM  (5 CEUs)
Mercy Conference and Retreat Center (NOTE UPDATED LOCATION)
2039 N. Geyer Road
St. Louis, MO 63131

Fee: $130 (Same price for all attendees. Lunch will be offered and is included with your registration fee.)

Thoreau said that many people are living “lives of quiet desperation,” and that “an unconscious despair is concealed under what are called the games and amusements of mankind.” In this lecture/colloquium we will discuss the problem of suffering, the effects of suffering on the personality, and a variety of approaches to suffering found in depth psychology. Dr. Corbett will look at ways to find meaning in suffering, times when suffering can be seen as an initiatory process into a new level of consciousness, and the process of radical acceptance of suffering in situations in which it cannot be changed. We will also look at some of the traditional spiritual approaches to suffering and contrast these with a psychological approach. States of mind such as envy, hatred, grief, and loneliness cause enormous suffering. Many such forms of mental pain are difficult to put into words. This workshop will be divided into two parts; we will begin by discussing some of the sources of these painful emotions and suggest ways in which they may be approached from a depth psychological point of view.

In the second part of the workshop, individuals will have an opportunity to present their cases, and we will continue the theme of suffering by discussing the problems of cruelty to others, torture, and the psychology of the torturer. We will discuss the suffering produced by self-inflicted pain in masochism, religious asceticism, and sacrifice. We will end with a discussion of the vital role of the witness when helping others who suffer.

Lionel Corbett, M.D., was trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. A professor of depth psychology at Pacifca Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California, he has written many professional papers and four books: The Religious Function of the Psyche, Psyche and the Sacred: Spirituality Beyond Religion, The Sacred Cauldron: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Practice, and most recently, The Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Suffering.

We will read and discuss Jung’s lecture series, Analytical Psychology: Its Theory and Practice. Jung delivered five lectures on aspects of his psychological theories at the Tavistock Clinic in London in 1935 to an audience of about 200 people. Speaking largely extemporaneously and in English, he was able to explain his ideas clearly and succinctly. Stenographic record of the lectures and discussions were taken and published first privately, then in book form.

Rose F. Holt, M.A. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in St. Louis and is a member of both the Chicago Association of Jungian Analysts and the Interregional Society of Jungian Analysts. She received her Diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago in 2001. She has served as Advisory Analyst to the C.G. Jung Society of St. Louis.

Dreamworlds, Spirit Worlds, and the Imaginal
Presented by Kay L. Tomlinson, Ph.D.

6 Sundays 2:00-4:00 PM
October 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12, 19.
Registration fee: Friends $115, Non-members $135 (12 CEUs)
Maximum number of participants: 8
Location: A home in Affton

The imaginal world and its inhabitants make themselves known in many ways. We will continue our investigations into the workings of the Imaginal, which interpenetrates our waking reality, by focusing on dreams and dreamscapes and our experiences with the spirit world. In particular, we will examine how these phenomena help move us along our path to individuation. Some of the work will be experiential, and there will be weekly reading/viewing assignments. MAXIMUM: 8 students. Will offer a second session on Thursday evenings if the Sunday group fills.

Kay L. Tomlinson, Ph.D., holds a degree in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her dissertation, "Working with the Imaginal: Art-Making and Dialogue with Figures of Soul," explored the effect on the female psyche of the patriarchal silencing of women's voices. Her research was performed from within a collaborative field between the waking and imaginal worlds, taking place amid ordinary activities of everyday life. Kay's current practice explores dreamwork and equine-guided learning from an imaginal perspective. Kay may be contacted at 636-448-2522, or by email (preferred) at kay_tomlinson@msn.com.

Creating a New Story of Your Health
Presented by
Carol Haake, Ed.D.
Sorry, this group is FULL

6 Sundays : 2:00-4:00 PM
Nov. 5,12,19,26, Dec.3,10
Registration fee: Members $105, Non-members $125 (12 CEUs)
Maximum number of participants: 10
Location: A home in the Dogtown area of St. Louis

 Using Carl Greer’s book, Change the Story of Your Health, we will explore old patterns and learn new ways of thinking about our health through Shamanic and Jungian techniques. The book, and our class, will focus on improving health and wellbeing, maintaining wellness as we age, managing chronic conditions, and/or dealing with having our health story suddenly rewritten by events we did not expect. “Healing” may mean adjusting to the story we are living or improving the state of our health. Many aspects of our story can affect our health, which, in turn can affect other areas of our life. Overall, we aim for greater life satisfaction and perhaps contributing to the wholeness and health of society by affecting the energy field we all share.

Carol Haake
has a doctorate in education from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She has been a member of the C.G. Jung Society of St. Louis for several years and has served on the Board of Directors. She has been interested in Shamanism and ritual for more than 15 years and has studied Native American and Celtic Shamanism with Pat Tuholski, naturalist and member of the Society of Shamanic Practitioners. She has studied Incan Shamanism for the past 3 years with Carl Greer, Jungian Analyst and Shamanic Healer.

A Study in Dreams

Presented by Rev. Tina Newberry, M.R.E.
Sorry, this group is FULL

4 Sundays, 4:00 - 6:00 PM, August 6, 13, 20, 27
Limited to 12 participants.
Location: Recovery St. Louis Office, 8029 Clayton Road, Suite 1, 63117
Fee: Friends $60, Others $80 (8 CEUs)

In the late 1930's, Jung taught a four-year seminar on children’s dreams and on the historical literature of dream interpretation. Not until 2008, did the English-speaking world have access to Jung's and the participants' notes as contained in the book Children's Dreams: Notes from the Seminar Given in 1936-1940. The seminar notes on the historical literature was not available in English until 2014 in the book Dream Interpretation: Ancient and Modern.

As the participants in Jung's seminars quickly discovered, studying children's dreams is a perfect way to learn how to work with the dreams. Not only did the participants broaden their understanding of the psychological development of the children as mirrored in their dreams, but they also grew to understand the basic structure and dynamics of dreams and how to amplify dreams for understanding. This summer's study group will use selected readings from the Children's Dreams book to join Jung's dream seminar group to see what they can learn about how one's psychological self grows as mirrored in children's dreams and how to use a dream's structure, context, and symbols to learn how to work their own dreams.

Rev. Tina Newberry is a certified Spiritual Director in the Jungian tradition, an educator, and a writer. She holds a Master of Arts in Religious Education, graduate certificates in the teaching of writing and the Clinical Training Program in Analytical Psychotherapy from the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago, a program she now co-directs.
