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.

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.
