Jung in the South

Calling those who live east of the Mississippi and south of the Mason-Dixon. I love California, Chicago, New York and New England, but need to connect with others in the South who are interested in exploring Jungian/Archetypal theories and practice.

As the statues come down or are being debated; as the flags are being removed or changed. What kinds of responses have you observed in your areas? What arguments are being presented for the removal or retention of these symbols? What function does a symbol have in a society and when do you know that function is no longer viable? Would enjoy hearing your thoughts and experiences related to a depth psychological understanding.

Any of you going to the Jung Society for Scholarly Studies conference in Asheville next week?  Dan and I will be there

Hi Ed - I'm still around!  Hope all is well with you.  I am quite active with our Nashville Jung Circle, a group some of us started about four years ago.   I am retiring as president this month, after serving for three years.

So...after a LONG time away, I resurface and wonder who is still out there, esp. in the Carolinas and Virginia? Frankly, I took too great a chunk of real estate in my exuberance with the beginning of the DPA. Now hoping there are some still remaining.
Headed to Florida to present at the national Association for Professional Chaplains conference. If anyone is in the Orlando area, maybe lunch?

Great to see you back, Ed. Your move sounds like it's been good for you. Wishing you all the continued best.

After a hiatus that included taking a new job, moving to a new state, and having, on the way, heart surgery, I am back and needing some mental stimulation! I'm in North Carolina now (New Bern) and looking for any groups that may be in the area, along with their programs. I know Raleigh has a group and Asheville is even further away. Anything closer to the sea? Starting a dream group soon to get back into the numinous with others. If anyone is coming New Bern way, give me a shout!! I fear my brain turning to jelly!!

They are doing one of Matthew Fox's "Rave Masses" here in Chapel Hill.  I think it is in January.  I am considering a free salon ahead of time and then have the group attend as a case study event.  I recommend attending it just to be educated on how the process works.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the program.

Sorry for the late response. I was sadly unimpressed with Matthew Fox's presentation. It came across as a book tour that was ill prepared. Wish I could be more excited. It was about his new book about Hildegard von Bingen. I went because of my love for her work, not so much for Matthew Fox. I didn't learn anything nor feel the desire to add another Hildegard book to my collection.

I attended a weekend workshop Matthew Fox did here in Chapel Hill a few months ago.  It will be interesting to hear your comments on what you think of his lecture.

He is promoting a charismatic mass similar to the Pentecostal and Toronto Blessing Groups.  For me, it is not religion.  It was pure stage hypnosis induction techniques to induce a trance state created by not surrendering within to the Divine but horizontally to the group leader.  His motive is pure, he just doesn't understand it.

Anyone else attending the Matthew Fox presentation tomorrow here in Louisville?
