The C. G. Jung Society of St. Louis will hold its fourth Jung in the Heartland Conference September 10-13, 2015, at King’s House Retreat Center in Belleville, IL. The theme of the conference is “The Altar of the Earth.”
The keynote speaker will be Monika Wikman, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst from Santa Fe, NM, author of Pregnant Darkness. Other speakers will be Belden Lane, Ph.D., St. Louis, MO, author and nature mystic, and Mary Ryan, MA, a counselor and teacher who uses film to illustrate her lectures. Mary lives in Springfield, IL
This conference will include an art exhibition organized around the theme, “The Altar of the Earth.” In 2014 the St. Louis Society featured a writing contest on the topic of “Honoring the Altar of the Earth.” The three top winners of the contest will present their essays at the Artists’ and Authors’ Reception, 7:00 pm, September 12, 2015. The reception is open to the public for a nominal fee. The Society has published a book of the finest contest entries and the book will be available at the conference.
For more information or to register for the conference or reception, visit cgjungstl.org or call (314) 533-6809.
Don’t forget that we have Rick Childs speaking tonight at the Roeland Park Community Center. The title of his talk is “Papal Infallibility: the problem of irreconcilable religious certainties.” All the details along with a map showing the location are here.
Hope to see you tonight!
You may remember that, in March, I traveled to Phoenix to give a presentation to the Phoenix Friends of CG Jung. I had a wonderful time with some wonderful Jungians. The podcast of my Friday night lecture is now available here. It’s an updated and improved (in my opinion) version of the talk I gave here in KC last March. If you are interested in a copy of the slides that accompanied the talk, just shoot me an email and I’ll send them along. Enjoy!

Join us for a series of very special drawing exercises designed to take us “Beyond Drawing,” beyond our mechanical nature, our mechanical way of observing and processing impressions. Working with attention, observation, and focusing on the whole of one’s self as one fluid process will be the aim. These exercises help one to be in touch with what is most important when making art. It is a matter of which part of us is active and which is passive. Students will walk away with some valuable experiences to use in ones’ art and/or self-discovery practice.
All levels of drawing abilities are welcome. Feel free to bring a drawing board if you have one.
We will break for lunch and eat at Eden Alley (next door to the meeting room), Dutch treat.
March 22, 2014 from 9am – 3pm

Welcome to the new KC Friends of Jung website!
There are still a few little bugs and I still need to make some more tweaks but it’s mostly functional. Plus, since the brochures are being delivered, I wanted you all to be able to pre-register for our exciting programs we have lined up for you this year.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for September 15 — our kick-off with Susan Rowland.
Enjoy the new site and your feedback is very welcome.
