Living More Fully in the Shadow of Mortality

December 1, Friday Lecture 7:30 pm
members: $25; non-members $35; students $15

Jung observed that “Life is a short pause between two great mysteries.” That fact is not in dispute; what matters then, is how we live that pause. E. M. Forster observed that the two who could most illumine us, the corpse and the baby, are not talking. Given that mortality frames our journey, how might we live it more fully, not defined by fear, morbidity, and denial? What attitudes and practices allow us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation bring us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?

Living the Examined Life:
Steps to the Recovery of a Personal Journey

December 2, Saturday Workshop 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
members: $70; non-members $85; students $50;
CEUs $25 combined Friday and Saturday workshop only!!

(this does not include Friday lecture)

Tiny, dependent, and at the mercy of the world around us, we all have to adapt, adjust, bury, deny, split-off and repress, and thereby lose contact with our own sovereignty and natural source of guidance. The core project of the second half of life is the recovery of that source. This program/workshop will focus on twenty-one steps we may take toward the recovery of our personal journey.
