Interview: Jeffrey Kiehl with Bonnie Bright, Wholeness & the Environmental Crisis

Dr. Jeff Kiehl has been a climate scientist for almost 40 years—but he has a unique take on the challenges we face on the climate front, because he is also a Jungian Analyst, focused on the study of the unconscious.

In this short interview for Depth Insights™, Jeffrey T. Kiehl, Ph.D., speaks with Bonnie Bright about his upcoming daylong workshop, “Reclaiming a Sense Wholeness Amidst the Environmental Crisis," which he’ll deliver at the C.G. Jung Psychology and Spirituality Conference taking place in Santa Fe, NM, June 9-16, 2017.

In our conversation, Dr. Kiehl offers an exclusive preview of his workshop by sharing ways we can each reconnect with a sense of the numinous and with nature in our daily lives, and the benefits that process can provide. We also discuss the unique, experiential format for this exciting Jungian conference.

The mission of the C. G. Jung Conference is to break open the psychological works of C. G. Jung, taking into account the spiritual questions of life. The Conference provides an opportunity to explore the integration of Jungian Psychology and spirituality by means of in-depth lectures by Jungian Analysts, creative expression, rituals, and excursions to sites that enhance the experience of the world of C. G. Jung.

The title of the 2017 conference is "Nature and the Soul: Cultivating a Partnership with the Wholeness of All." Speakers include Jerome Bernstein, Thomas Elsner, Sandra Easter, Monika Wikman, John Todd,Puddi Kullberg, and Frank Morgan, along with Jeffrey Kiehl.

The conference format includes dream tending circles, talking circles, shared meals, nature walks, opportunities for socializing and networking, and rituals, and expeditions into nature, history and the artistic communities of Santa Fe.

What a lovely interview, Bonnie. I was very interested to learn about this important conference that I'd known nothing about, but I was also reminded of the simple steps that we can all take to reconnect to the natural world. Jeff's comment that we don't need to be in a beautiful landscape to experience the beauty of nature; we can experience it in line at the grocery store was a terrific reminder. Also, I loved his words about putting ourselves in a state of vulnerability. Thanks to both of you for doing the work that you do.
