An Evening With...

Annilee Oppenheimer

Music is everywhere. We often hear a background musical soundtrack as we shop in the mall, drive, and socialize in restaurants. The easy accessibility of music can lull us into viewing music as mere entertainment and cause us to trivialize its importance. The ancients, however, understood that music can have a profound effect on our wellbeing. The Greek philosopher Plato believed that music exists for the purpose of creating harmony among the various aspects of ourselves. In this program we will explore how music can be an ally in our path to health and wholeness. We will look at ways we can intentionally use music to access untapped potentialities and enlarge our lives.

Annilee Oppenheimer is a retired lawyer. She enjoys exploring dreams, poetry, music, archetypal symbolism, storytelling. and active imagination as vehicles to make connections -- both with her deepest self and with others. She has been attending programs at the Jung Society of Washington since 1999, and she finds that the Jung Society provides a beautiful container for what the writer Parker J. Palmer calls "a community of solitudes where we can be alone together."
