Saturday, October 20th: Participant-led Open Discussion

Myth as a Pathway to What Seeks a Voice

Rilke once said, "I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world." Within those circles sit the myths and stories of our past, present, and future. Myth, then, is a powerful container--it provides a space in which we can find medicine, healing, inspiration, courage, and more. As our lives widen, so too does our inner voice and its expression in the outer world. 

In this interactive workshop, we'll have an opportunity to listen closely to and participate in a few of these old tales. Storytelling is an old art, designed to help you come alive again, laugh out loud, and be touched by something larger than yourself. Time will be given to reflect, journal, and share as we let the stories work through us and discover what wants a voice. 

Kelly McGannon, MAR, MA, has worked with intuition, dreams, and myth for more than 20 years. As a certified Leadership and Integral Coach, Kelly blends her academic, intuitive/shamanic, and martial arts backgrounds in her work with others, offering multiple pathways into self and psyche. She is in private practice in the DC metro area and can be reached at: www.betweentwoworlds.com

Reach out to connect, share a dream, revel in synchronicities, and learn more about how to travel the labyrinth of the heart via myth. 

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.  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 with Paypal, so please register and pay on line, if you are able.  Otherwise, bring $5.00 cash or check.  

Questions: call Brenda 301 587 7412 and leave a message for a callback. Also please don’t wear perfumes, colognes or scents as some of our attendees are allergic to them.

OUR MISSION

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.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
