Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
Bones for Cerberus: Facing the Gatekeeper, Freeing Our Demons
Speaker: Janice Gary
Our deepest fears are like dragons
Join author Janice Gary, author of Short Leash: A Memoir of Dog Walking and Deliverance, as she discusses her journey of unleashing the past and confronting her fears while walking with her own Cerberus - a one hundred pound Lab-Rottweiler named Barney.
Janice Gary is an award-winning writer and writing teacher based in Annapolis, Maryland. She last taught for the Jung Foundation in the 2013 Summer Study Intensive program.
The Alchemy of Writing: From Darkness to Light
Speaker: Susan Tiberghien
"Darkness gives birth to light."
After an introduction to alchemy, we will look at the parallels that C.G. Jung saw between the alchemical procedure and individuation. We will see how the three steps of the alchemical operation – nigredo, albedo, rubedo – lead us to a deeper consciousness. Reading and appreciating excerpts from Jung's Red Book, and from several contemporary writers, we will become alchemists ourselves.
Susan Tiberghien, an American–born writer living in Switzerland, has published three memoirs, Looking for Gold, Circling to the Center, and Footsteps, A European Album, and most recently One Year to A Writing Life, along with numerous narrative essays in journals and anthologies on both sides of the Atlantic. She teaches and lectures at graduate programs, C.G. Jung Centers, and at writers' conferences both in the United States and in Europe, where she directs the Geneva Writers' Group and Conferences. Her website is at www.susantiberghien.com.
Information about further upcoming forums will be posted when available.
