Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
Speaker: Charles Hall
In Modern Man in Search of a Soul, C.G. Jung made the following statement in a chapter titled, Psychotherapist or the Clergy: "It is no easy matter to live a life that is modeled on Christ's, but it is unspeakably harder to live one's own life as truly as Christ lived his." We are not to simply try to imitate Christ or any other prominent spiritual figure for that matter but rather we are called to connect to our own unique experience and live it fully.
If this is the case, then who best to help us uncover and hopefully surmount those blocks that get in our way and wreak havoc in our lives? In this lecture, we will explore a working definition of spirituality, speak about soul work in modern times and uncover the constituent aspects associated with deepening our own awareness.
Charles Hall is a recent graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute of New York.

He served in the U.S. Army for over 26 years retiring at the rank of Colonel. Shortly before his retirement, he was ordained as a deacon in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, New York. In 2000, after his retirement, he was appointed chaplain at the Capital District Psychiatric Center, a State-run hospital serving the seriously mentally ill, and continues to serve there. As part of his spiritual work with patients, he incorporates Sandplay Therapy, a therapeutic modality whose roots lie deep within Jungian thought. In addition to his ministry as chaplain, he is a certified spiritual director and provides this service at a non-denominational wellness center where he also leads a dream group and conducts seminars on spirituality and Jungian psychology.
