About Diane…
Diane came to speak at the Maine Jung Center’s Tools of Individuation workshop last April; Diane shared her account of this experience, which she describes ”as if the world were opening her secrets to me, as if I were waking from a very long sleep. Nature was pulsing with energy — trees, clouds, the wind — all spoke to me. “

Those members who were present described it as one of the most meaningful of the Center’s Tools of Individuation series.

Member News, March 2017, Remembering Susan Matthews

Dear Jung Center Members,

We wish to acknowledge the passing of one of our dear members this month. Susan Matthews died peacefully in her sleep on March 11, 2017. Susan was active on our Board of Directors for the Jung Center and served as Membership Chair for three years, offering her many talents to the growth and service of the Jung Center and our members. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Maine, she pursued her professional life in the field of Education, most recently as Administrator of Special Needs in Lisbon. Susan had many interests; she was an avid gardener, traveller, walker, and active in community service.

We all enjoyed working with Susan and appreciated her many contributions to the Center.  She was always so upbeat, organized and cheerful. We are sad to lose her and extend our condolences to her family and friends

Dear Members,

We have recently learned about the passing of long-time member of the Maine Jung Center, Janet McCaa. She died quietly in her sleep on June 5th. Janet was a graduate of Wellesley College and Cornell Law School. In addition to her long list of personal and professional accomplishments, Janet had a keen interest in the ideas of C. G. Jung. She attended many programs at the Jung Center and had a particular interest in dream work and psychological type. For a time, she served on our Finance Committee and gave us valuable suggestions. We will miss Janet both personally and as an active, supportive member of the Maine Jung Center.

Thankful Butler, Membership Chair
