One of the most carefully guarded Jungian tomes, the Red Book contains the record of Jung's most personal journey. In the years 1913-1917, and with painstaking detail, Jung recorded numerous paintings, images, dialogues and reflections in his famed "confrontation with the unconscious." This work reveals his rich archetypal world and holds the inspiration for much of his pioneering theories and clinical techniques. The Red Book has been locked away for almost one hundred years because of its revealing and raw exposure of Jung's soul. Decades of negotiations with Jung's heirs led to its publication late last year in 2009. In the coming years Jungian groups around the world will be exploring this book as its publication is an historic event. Join us for one of the first explorations with a noted Jungian analyst and author.

This three-hour seminar is conducted by Dr. Murray Stein from Zurich, Switzerland. This is a complimentary re-viewing of the seminar for those who attended the IONS event on Jan 22 when we lost power. For those who did not attend that morning and would like to attend now, you must register at the Asheville website. We will accommodate some walk-ins the morning of the event, cash or check only at the door, but we encourage you to register early so we know how many people to expect.

You may purchase 3 hours of APA CEs and California MFT CEUs (BBS) at the registration desk the morning of the event for $15, cash or check only.

This 10 hour film consists of interviews with people around the world on the topic of dreams, with in-depth interviews with noted Jungian analyst Marie-Louise von Franz on the archetypal significance and amplification of the dreams narrated in the film.

This is a hard-to-find classic 1985 film on dreams that was expanded and reissued with commentary by noted analyst Marion Woodman in 2009. The film was made by Fraser Boa, a Canadian analyst trained in Zurich who had been a student of Marie-Louise von Franz.

In partnership with the Angela Center of Santa Rosa, we're offering a weekend immersion and facilitated discussion at Sonoma State to study this film. The topics of the 18 sections of the film include: dream structure and dream narrative, dream symbolism, shadow in dreams, the meaning of dreams, Biblical dream narratives, the nature of the Self, aspects of women's development as seen in the development of the animus, aspects of men's development as seen in the anima, the challenge of relationships, the meaning of death, and reflections on the Dreammaker.

The weekend's immersion allows a relaxed and reflective entry into one's own experiences with dreams. Based on her long experience with her own dreams and those of her patients, von Franz's commentary offers a penetrating and enlivening view of the nature of psyche as it emerges within dreams; how one makes meanings of dreams; and how archetypal amplification assists with understanding the dream's meaning.

The discussion is facilitated by Laurel McCabe, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Sonoma State University and Coordinator of the Depth Psychology M.A. program, and Greg Bogart, Ph.D., psychotherapist and author of Dreamwork and Self-Healing: Unfolding the Symbols of the Unconscious.

Marion Woodman, LLD, DHL, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst, teacher and author of classic books on women's development, eating disorders, the conscious feminine, and integrated somatic approaches to psychological development.

She is the author of numerous classic texts in Jungian psychology, among them Puer aeternus; Projection and recollection in Jungian psychology; Shadow and evil in fairytales; The feminine in fairytales; Individuation in fairytales; Animus and anima in fairytales; Creation myths; On dreams and death; Alchemy: An introduction to the symbolism and the psychology; Alchemical active imagination; On divination and synchronicity; and Number and time; and contributor to essays in edited volumes on typology, anima, and individuation.

The labyrinth is a powerful archetypal pattern.The experience of walking this ancient pattern can provide space for self-reflection and meditation; it stirs our creative juices, helps us to embody wisdom and can serve as a life raft to weather these stormy times. It orders chaos, quiets the mind and allows us to hear "the small still voice within." This workshop focuses on how the gentle practice of walking the labyrinth can be used to transform the human capacity for connecting to Spirit.

Come and learn about the practice of labyrinth walking. Come to be refreshed and renewed by a day of walking. This workshop also serves as "qualifying workshop" for those interested in attending the Veriditas Facilitator Training.

The Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress is a spiritual leader, spiritual director, psychotherapist, author, Episcopal priest, and the President and Founder of Veriditas ~ The Voice of the Labyrinth Movement.

Her personal focus is on creating group events that nurture the connection between the human spirit and the Divine.

David Tresan, M.D. Faith, Doubt, and Meaning in Jung

Jung is an elusive target when it comes to finding the nature of his faith. He claims he has none, but certainly he must, for over his entire life he keeps vigorously turning up one truth after another regarding the nature of reality and of human life. If not faith, what lures him forward, and towards what ultimately? Dr. Tresan has pursued these questions over some time, and this seminar is another visit to that territory, both in Jung and in himself. He explores the territory that lies between mere existence and a quest for meaning, or otherwise said, between doubt and assent. Is this not also the core issue of any form of therapy?


David Tresan, M.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Mill Valley and San Francisco.  His abiding interest lies in the history of ideas and science, the evolution of consciousness, the psychology of the transcendent, and, most importantly, clinical work.  He has recently written on religion, neuroscience, and aging in various reviews and papers.  This New Science of Ours; A More or Less Systematic History of Consciousness and Transcendence appeared in two parts in the Journal of Analytic Psychology (2004).

Tribal shamans were inspired, at least in part, by their dreams to create the mythologies that gave purpose to people of their communities. In addition, they helped members of their communities to derive meaning from their dreams, and many of their procedures are surprisingly contemporary. In this presentation, Dr. Krippner will discuss his personal experiences with South American shamans, and why their concern with the natural environment is badly needed to face today's ecological crises.

Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. holds an endowed chair in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School and is the author of over 100 books and articles on mythology, dreams, shamanism, hypnosis, and anomalous phenomena. He draws on his encounters with over 100 shamans from six continents for his international workshops and seminars on shamanism. He is the author with Montague Ullman of Dream Telepathy, which describes their experiments at Maimonides Medical Center. He is a past president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, the Association for the Study of Dreams, the Parapsychological Association, and Divisions 2 and 32 of the American Psychological Association; the recipient of the Parapsychological Association's Lifetime Achievement Award, the J.B. Rhine Award for Outstanding Contributions to Parapsychology, the Charlotte and Karl Buhler Award from APA Division 32, the Pathfinder Award from the Association for Humanistic Psychology, the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Professional Hypnosis from APA Division 30. and the Ashley Montagu Peace Award.
