A Special Event in Three Nights With Brooke Medicine Eagle: White Buffalo Woman and David Bohm: Holiness and the Quantum Field

Twenty generations ago, White Buffalo Woman came, giving us teachings about the "holy oneness of all life” and foreshadowing scientists, such as theoretical physicist David Bohm, who contributed significantly to our understanding of the unified field and quantum theory. This "connectedness of all life” has profound implications for trying to solve the crises we now face, as well as for our personal and planetary lives, including women’s health and empowerment in the time of the “arising feminine.

An Evening With Bonnie Damron: Emma Marie Rauschenbach Jung (1882-1955): An Encounter with Destiny

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Emma Marie Rauschenbach Jung.  Her accomplishments were vast, and her contributions to the field of Analytical Psychology stand on their own.  Using her life-long research and interest in Chretien de Troyes’ Perceval, or the Story of the Grail, she created a new understanding of the archetypal ground and psychological significance to the Grail Legend perennially and for our age.  In addition, she pioneered a model for work with animus and anima and, in Animus and Anima: Two Essays, she developed a scaffolding upon which others could build.

Mrs. Jung was an author, scholar, teacher, researcher, Jungian analyst, lecturer, linguist (Swiss, German, Swiss-German, English, French, Latin, Greek, Medieval French, and Provencal); a student of physics, philosophy, and mathematics; a pianist; a mother of five children, wife, sister, and daughter.  In many ways, she was a woman ahead of her generation.  Even so, at heart she was a deeply private individual.

Emma Jung: What shaped her life? A workshop Bonnie Damron

Today, we shall revisit several places in Emma Jung’s biography where destiny emerged to shape her life.  For example, her relationship with her father during her childhood, her remarkable response to Chretien de Troyes’ Perceval, or the Story of the Grail during her adolescence, and her confrontation with her husband early in her marriage. 

Following the good advice from Dr. Michael Conforti, we shall ask, “What shapes a life?” We shall go slow, go simple, go natural, and go deep -- even if we cover only some of the material that is available. For ultimately, the purpose of this work is for each of us to deepen our perspective, not only about the life of Emma Jung, but of our understanding of what shapes our lives and our destinies.
