The Transformation of the Familiar

In this participant-led discussion, Brenda Freeman, the Wisewoman meeting planner, will invite participants to share an event in their lives where a miraculous, synchronistic, or life-changing event occurred. It could be an encounter with a ghost or totem animal . . . any way we have been touched by the miraculous. To permit everyone to speak, let's limit our comments to 10 minutes, so we can have time interact and be amazed.

Edward B. Lindaman wrote: "One of life's most fulfilling moments occurs in that split-second when the familiar is suddenly transformed into the dazzling aura of the profoundly new."

The Wisewoman group meets at 2:00 - 4:00 P.M. in the Jung Society of Washington library at the Palisades Community Church, 5200 Cathedral Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20016. Please arrive early so the session can begin promptly at 2:00. The doors open at 1:30 so participants can have an opportunity to meet & greet before the session. Please use the Hawthorne Place entrance. The Jung Society has moved an on-line registration and to Paypal, so please register and pay on line. If there are problems with registering on line, please bring $5.00 cash or check.

The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
