The Passionate Feminine

             For over thirty-six years, we have gathered to celebrate the Passover, a re-telling of the Hebrew peoples’ crossing the desert into the Promised Land of milk and honey.  We read the Haggadah, we drink the wine, pass the matzo, flick the plagues off our fingers like an Italian curse gesture.  We sing Dayenu, the song that voices the wonder of any small act to be sufficient for knowing God’s abundant love and grace to us, the people who follow the law.  The youngest ones present ask…See More

Will you catch me when I fall? : Living the Symbolic Life

     “Will you catch me when I fall?”  Those are the words of a refrain from a Danish song by the group Danser med Drenge (Dancing with Boys).  The image helped me recall the old trust games used in group-building back in the day.  Someone stood in the center of a group, crossed their arms across their chests and closed their…See More

"What do you think is behind the "that's cultural appropriation" remarks? Is it a lack of understanding of the symbolic life? Is it a desire to protect vulnerable others that often simply ends up in some version of the outrage response…"

The Art of Soul Healing: Transformation in Stone Weekend Workshop at Olympia, Washington

September 18, 2015 at 6pm to September 20, 2015 at 12pm
“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” C. G.Jung, Memories,Dreams and ReflectionsThere is a moral, ethical and spiritual mandate to become conscious and aware human beings. We will explore what the soul is, what it needs and why we are compelled to listen to its call. Creativity,another word for art, provides the soul the means by which it can express, be seen, accepted and healed.  Theoretically grounded in a Jungian…See More

Trauma, Don't Paint it Pretty

I recently started a new painting, using a canvass big enough to use up some old paint.  It was to be a study of yellows, with burnt sienna, vermillion red and other odds and ends I had accumulated over the years.  So I mixed the old paint with walnut oil,…See More

Sometimes you can see dolphins

Or other fish

Backlit by the sun

Suspended in the clarity of water.

I was not able to tune in when the last Dream webinar was aired. When will  it be archived and will I be able to access it? I was so anticipating listening to the last segment. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the other two sessions! I have been presenting some new dream classes locally. I, also, studied dreams at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am honing my skills to then become a personal Dream Therapist.

Hello, Silvia--

 

I participated in a teleconference on The Red Book in February.  That is how I learned of the DPA. 

 

:-)

 

And you?

Ordained Christian though interfaith in practice after several years as an academic and sometime devotional Buddhist. As a spiritual director, I am open to all types and levels. Studied in Israel for several months, basically the place of geography in theology (not realizing I would revisit such thinking when I got involved in depth psychology). Still have cravings for lox and cream cheese on a bagel with capers!!! (Actualy, its time for me to go to lunch!!!)

Welcome Silvia,

I'm also a clergy-type person working with soul on different "fronts." I believe you will find others who share your interests and curiosities within the Alliance. Just out of my own curiosity, which faith tradition do you serve?

Ed
