Discussion Group

Karen DeBenedetto will present and hold a group discussion on Malta and the Goddesses on April 20th.

Halfway between North Africa and Europe, the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo are home to extraordinary temples resonating to a vibrant Goddess culture over 6,000 years old.  The peaceful, artistic and matrifocal people of ancient Malta left us their temples and symbolic language.  Today these sacred places still transmit unique qualities of healing, regeneration and the wisdom of the natural world.  The Maltese Temple building had an advanced astronomical understanding. The discussion will include information on Mnajadra, Ggantia and Hypogeum.

Karen DiBenedetto was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She holds an undergraduate degree in Textiles/Retailing (Michigan State University); and a graduate degree in International Trade and Foreign Languages (Eastern Michigan University).  She is a resident of Alexandria, VA and a federal employee.  Karen’s passions include spirituality, art, creativity, and travel.  Being a nearly triple Scorpio, she thrives on studying mysticism and spiritual transformation. Travel has taken her to many countries; and is especially fond of the Himalayan region (India, Nepal, Bhutan).

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.
