A Day with...

In this workshop, we will see how Jung journeyed through darkness to light in The Red Book. After a short introduction to alchemy, we will read excerpts from The Red Book. We will look at how Jung went in and out of darkness, actively imagining the different encounters. We will see how, through journaling we can make our own journey. There will be excerpts from Thomas Merton, Marion Woodman, Margaret Atwood, Paulo Coehlo,  and guided writing exercises in active imagination. We will become alchemists and find ways to share our gold – our growing awareness – in our troubled world.
