Synchronicity holds both magic and mystery when it is encountered.  It seems puzzling and unexplainable.  Perhaps we could say that synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence that connects something going on outside us with something happening inside us.  Jung describes synchronicity not as cause and effect but as consisting of an unconscious image that comes into consciousness and an objective situation coinciding with this content and creating emotion and affect. The purpose of this five-week course is to allow opportunities to be self-reflective and open to the possibility of synchronicity, which brings consciousness and meaning to our lives with the opportunity for change.  We will be reading and working with David Richo’s book, The Power of Coincidence: How Life Shows Us What We Need to Know.
