The Road Less Travelled: C. G. Jung, Hildegard of Bingen and the Path of Individuation St. John's Episcopal, Ross September 20, 10:30 am-5:30 pm plus an optional evening labyrinth walk with live music
In the middle of our life, we often find ourselves in a place of dryness, a dark wood where we have lost our way. What once nurtured us has lost its savor; the elements of life that we once found so enticing and fulfilling now seem empty and devoid of meaning. This is exactly the point, Carl Jung discovered, at which the life of the soul is ready to emerge. If the first half of life is the Hero's Journey of outward adventure and success, the second half, Jung found, is about the opening to mystery and finding the place where we have the openness and enthusiasm of a young child.
Using the tools of Jungian Psychology. we'll explore the inspiring story of Hildegard of Bingen (11th century composer, artist, botanist, scientist, spiritual director, Benedictine abbess and theologian) and other remarkable figures of history who flourished in the second half of life. Through music, art, guided journalling , we will encounter practices that can uncover our own depths and awaken our hidden inner vitality.
