Limited to 12 participants.

Life constantly signals us when we need to make a change or gives us directions on how to get where we want to go. In Buddhism this is called “the finger pointing at the moon”. Too often we remain focused on the finger and never look at the moon. The finger can be a teacher, a situation, a mood, a challenge that haunts us. The moon is an answer we seek, a solution, a clarification. As long as we focus on the problem, we will never apprehend the solution. This workshop will discuss the reasons we might be stuck on the problem and not looking at the solution. It will also explore the problem through our own hands-on artistic expression and help us find ways to let go of the problems that plague us and allow us to access available solutions. A viewing of artwork by Karra Barnes, which will be on display at the Jung Center, is included.

About the Instructors
Charlotta Koppanyi holds a Master’s degree in Psychology and a BA in Contemporary Religion from Stockholm University and has studied Jungian psychology since the 90’s. In 1994-1995 she studied at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago on a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship. Her master’s thesis discussed the hero myth in leadership roles and organizations. She currently teaches art to seniors and private students in Evanston and works for a non-profit organization.

After multiple tours of duty in Vietnam as a combat medic, Sensei Mui was ordained in Thailand as a Buddhist monk in the Forest Tradition, practicing for ten years. He holds a Doctorate in Buddhist Studies (DBS) from the Pāli Institute in Sri Lanka and a PhD in psycholinguistics. During the past fifty years, Sensei has studied and been ordained in multiple Buddhist disciplines, continuing to filter his learning through the lens of the original teachings. Sensei acts as a Buddhist therapist utilizing meditation as a tool to foster emotional and cognitive well-being. He works with both individuals and groups in both private and corporate settings.
