The 2016 June Singer Memorial Lecture 

CEUs: 5

Instructors: Barbara Friedman & Doris Klinkhamer

Carl Jung engaged in a process of deep change that restructured his consciousness.  This change in consciousness was informed by moving away from strictly scientific and rational constructs toward a focus on non-ordinary perception.  Join us as we come together for a day of encouragement as we embrace trauma and change with an awake mind. Together we will explore how to engage and understand messages from the Self and work with those messages to reconnect with our resilience.  We will use information from meditation, shamanism and active imagination to guide you in this journey.  We encourage you to make a bold attempt to engage in the process of change as conscientiously and consciously as Jung did.
