A trip to Zurich
November 20, 2015, 6-8 is the first in a series of member events designed to explore together a vision of a sustainable future
for the Center,and to let us get to know one another a bit better. For this first meeting we will begin by hearing about a recent
trip to Zurich by three Center members to study Individuation and Spirituality, complete with a tour of Bollingen guided by
one of Jung's grandson's. After this brief talk, we will break for refreshments (Pot luck contributions accepted, but optional)
and then we want to share ideas about the Center and listen to member feedback. No fee; bring your ideas and questions.
Please join us. Registration is not necessary but we would love to know that you plan to come.

Continuing Discussion Group for Members:
Fairy Tales Discussion Group, Facilitated by Jen Stanbro
This group is intended for members who are interested in using a Jungian lens to explore the themes and images found in a variety of fairy tales. We will read and discuss one fairy tale each month. Jennifer Stanbro will facilitate the discussion and choose the first tale. After the first session, the group will select the readings for the following meetings. Our method of entry will be to experience the images of the stories as innocently as possible, letting them do their work as we amplify their meaning. Then our discussion will slowly move towards interpretation, referencing Marie Louise Von Franz’s chapter on method in The Interpretation of Fairytales. No preparation is required to participate, but reading the Von Franz chapter is suggested.
Location: The Center, 9:30-11:30 am
Meeting dates: 9/19, 11/21, 12/19, 1/16. Members interested in the group should feel free to drop in. Each meeting we read and discuss one or two fairytales. Our method of entry is to first experience the images of the story. Then we begin to amplify their meaning, gently moving towards interpretation. No preparation is required,but a sense of play is encouraged.
The Science Delusion Discussion Group: Facilitated by Jeff Pinnette.
The Gaia discussion group is morphing to the Science Delusion discussion group.
In this discussion group, we will read Science Set Free: 10 Paths to New Discovery by Rupert Sheldrake. The British version of this book is titled The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Inquiry. The book addresses 10 dogmas of modern science as shown in the attached table of contents:
Introduction: The 10 dogmas of modern science
Is nature mechanical?
Is the total amount of matter and energy always the same?
Are the laws of nature fixed?
Is matter unconscious?
Is nature purposeless?
Is all biological inheritance material?
Are memories stored as material traces?
Are minds confined to brains?
Are psychic phenomena illusory?
Is mechanistic medicine the only kind that works?
Illusions of objectivity
This discussion group will meet on the third Sunday of each month from 10 AM to 12 N as follows:
October 18, November 15, December 20, January 17, February 21, March 20, April 17, May 15
