Sonu Shamdasani tells the story of an associate of Jung's who asked Jung to comment on some of his Red Book mandalas and paintings. Jung declined saying that his friend would be better served by creating her own red book.

This summer we will have the opportunity to create our own red books during a six-week course that will meet during June, July and August. Course participants will meet with a presenter for two hours every other week. During these meeting we will discuss Jung's experiences, which lead to his experiences, which became The Red Book. During subsequent sessions we will learn about active imagination techniques, dream interpretation, journaling and mandala creation. Participants will have an opportunity to use these techniques between sessions and bring their creations to the group for discussion and sharing.

Limited to 20 participants, class will meet in six Wednesday evening sessions held at the Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, in Wallingford, Seattle, from 7 – 9 pm.

TIMELESS NIGHT – Viktor Frankl meets Edith Stein
A play by Elizabeth Clark-Stern
featuring Robert Bergman as Viktor Frankl and the author as Edith Stein

Play: Saturday, June 28, 2014, 8 p.m.
Good Shepherd Center, 4th floor, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. North, Seattle  98103 (driving directions)

Late in the spring of the Second World War, two “troublemakers” are thrown together in an old storage shed in Auschwitz:  Viktor Frankl, a psychiatrist who is making notes on the book he will write if he survives the camp, and Edith Stein, a Jewish philosopher/author who defied her family to become a nun.  With the dawn comes Liberation, or Extermination. They make a contract for comedy, but the reality of their characters, and their deep curiosity about each other, draw them again and again, to reveal their ideas, their joys, and the deepest longing of their souls.

Summer 2013 Pilgrimage



As part of my annual quarter away from teaching at Antioch University Seattle, I am taking a 9-week trip to a variety of European countries. In support of discerning the focus and direction for the last third of my life, I will begin my summer travels by walking El Camino de Santiago de Compostela (The Sacred Way of St. James) in northern Spain with my Swedish brylling (cousin) Karin. We will walk for 35 days between early July and early August, 2013, planning to complete the 450 mile/790 km from St. Jean Pied-de-Port in southwestern France (near Biarritz) to Santiago in northwestern Spain (about 50 miles east of the Atlantic Ocean). Karin and I have been talking about walking a pilgrimage since first meeting each other in 2007. Our trip begins by crossing the Pyrenees Mountains—nothing like leaping headfirst into the deep end of the pool!
The impetus for the timing of this trip is my attending The International Jungian Congress in Copenhagen (Köpenhamn) in mid-August. http://cg-jung.dk/en/welcome-to-the-iaap-congress-in-copenhagen/
After the Congress, I will meet a friend in London. We will first complete a 5-day trek in Wales: The Pembrokeshire Coast Path. http://nt.pcnpa.org.uk/website/sitefiles/nt_page.asp?PageID=2
After our hike, we will return to London see the jolly old sights.  http://www.gps-routes.co.uk/routes/home.nsf/RoutesLinksWalks/jubilee-walkway-walking-route
I will write now and then as I walk the Camino. I will access the internet occasionally when I am able to keep my eyes open after a long day of hiking. Blog address: abbelcamino.blogspot.blog
¡Buen Camino! Ruega por nosotros, por favor.
Bra Camino resa! Be för oss, tack.
Good Camino! Please pray for us.

SPRING JOURNAL BOOKS: Love: Traversing its Peaks and Valleys

Spring Journal Books
(the book publishing imprint of Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture, the oldest Jungian psychology journal in the world)
LOVE
Traversing Its Peaks and Valleys
Jungian Odyssey Series, Vol. V
Featuring articles by James Hollis, Ann Ulanov, Mark Hederman, John Hill, and others
Stacy Wirth, Isabelle Meier, and John Hill, Series Editors
ISBN: 978-1-935528-46-3
228 pp.
Price: $24.95


This volume of essays arises from the 7th Jungian Odyssey retreat, sponsored by ISAPZURICH and held in the summer of 2012 in Flüeli-Ranft, an idyllic agricultural village in the central Swiss Alps. A renowned place of pilgrimage in the 15th century, it was the home of Swiss monk and mystic Brother Klaus whose unorthodox biography and religious visions have been studied by many scholars, including C.G. Jung.

The Playful Psyche: Entering Chaos, Coincidence, Creation
The spirit of this place subtly permeates the articles in this collection, which illuminate love in its many forms and observe its joys, risks, and ravages. The authors, invited guests and ISAPZURICH analysts, contribute insight from the analytic consulting room, and draw as well on theology, folk song, legend, myth, theater, and the visual arts. Picking up a thread that runs throughout, Ann Ulanov writes, “To love a particular someone, a definite idea, a distinct place, a principal symbol, or notion of the psyche, opens us to loss with all its searing pain.” Readers of this volume will find encouragement, but no easy answers. In the end, the authors might be said to concur with Jung’s frank confession, “… I have again and again been faced with the mystery of love and have never been able to explain what it is.”

International Jungian Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark

Every third year, the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP) sponsors an international conference, namely, the International Jungian Congress. In 2013, the International Jungian Congress is scheduled for August 18-23. Please see the links below for descriptive information.
I am excited to attend this meeting this summer. I will post information when I return to the US.

Jungian Psychotherapists Association 20th Anniversary Celebration

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Jungian Psychotherapists Association (JPA), JPA offers two public seminars in 2013: Ann Belford Ulanov, April 20, 2013 (already presented) and John Bebee, October 19, 2013: Approaching a Patient’s Complexes in Contemporary Culture. After Dr. Beebe’s presentation, we will host a reception to celebrate 20 years of collegial community.
Nineteen years ago, at David Hufford’s behest, eight people gathered to craft a unique Jungian organization, envisioning a cooperative professional training organization for mental health practitioners interested in Analytical Psychology. The resulting Jungian Psychotherapists Association (JPA) nestles midway between the analyst’s guild, North Pacific Institute for Analytical Psychology/NPIAP, and the community salon, C. G Jung Society, Seattle. The JPA steering group inaugurated the organization with a 1983 public presentation by John Beebe: What I’ve Learned from Jung about Doing Psychotherapy. Many event participants enthusiastically joined JPA to become charter members. At its inception, JPA members met quarterly for business meetings combined with invited short clinical presentations by local analysts, sometimes followed by a facilitated discussion several weeks later. During the ensuing almost 20 years, JPA has offered a variety of workshops designs, most currently in the form of a public seminar, two clinical workshops, and an ethics workshop each year; many workshops are followed by a case consultation led by the workshop leader. Members may invite licensed practitioners to JPA clinical workshops.
For many years, Steering Committee members and charter members rotated through elected offices. Many Steering Committee members and charter members have redirected their attention to other interests; others have become Jungian analysts or Psychoanalytic analysts; and none of the original Steering Committee members currently serve on the Council. A new generation of members now holds elected offices and will ably guide the organization into the future.
The JPA mission, as listed on the website (www.jpaseattle.org), states the following: “The JPA is a mutually supportive organization of psychotherapists actively engaged in the study and application of Analytical Psychology. The central purpose of the JPA is to further the professional growth, development, and education of its members. To support this aim, the JPA provides professional educational opportunities with a clinical focus, including seminars, courses, consultations, and, study groups.” JPA offers a free annual ethics workshop for members as well as an annual public seminar, open to the public, at which well-known Jungian speakers present cutting-edge Jungian perspectives.
JPA is a fluid organization, adjusting to contemporary needs and directions; for example, JPA recently changed the membership requirements to eliminate required task group participation and Jungian analysis. Current membership guidelines are as follows: interest and foundational background in Jungian Analytical Psychology; and licensed clinician (or in the process of becoming licensed). Benefits of membership include professional community; professional development opportunities; member rate for all training events; professional listserve; JPA blog; and website listing.
We invite you to celebrate our 20th Anniversary with us. And we invite you to join our professional community which offers a rich variety of learning opportunities.
