This issue is quite late, my apologizes! Like a hibernating animal, I've been slow to keep up with the seasonal change. It seems as if time just gallops once the last winter snow melts away and spring begins to show herself.
We open this issue - our 15th - with an essay entitled Jung and Numinosum by Sue Mehrtens. Following this in the News From... section is information on an exciting Jungian seminar in Italy this summer sponsored by Michael Conforti's non-profit Assisi Institute. In The Arts section we include Certain Trees, a poem by Emily Murphey and bring this month's e-journal contributions to a conclusion with a description of the next Jung Society of Vermont event on March 28th, Psychological Type and Archetype, in the This Month section. We hope to see you there!
Our film screening of the Wisdom of the Dream this past February 7th was the perfect thing for those of us who prefer something quieter on Super Bowl Sunday. We had a wonderful turn out with more than forty people attending. Discussion time provided opportunities for questions and comments - all stimulating - and I only wish that we had more time to hear from everybody who raised their hands as well as go into more depth about some of the more controversial aspects of Jung's life. We will be scheduling more Jungian and Jungian-related films, probably this fall, so stay tuned. The JSVT board is in the process of creating our fall calendar and we are interested in hearing from you. Send your suggestions to Luanne Sberna at JunginVermont2@Burlingtontelecom.net
Some other things to note before drawing this month's edition to a close:
- Looking ahead, on June 26th, from 5:00 to 7:00 the society is hosting a Friends of Jung reception in Waitsfield. Stay tuned for more information.
- If you are interested in discussing Jungian ideas on a regular basis, there is a Jungian Reading group that meets monthly - contact Luanne Sberna for more information: JunginVermont2@Burlingtontelecom.net
As always, we at the e-journal would love to hear from you so send us your comments. Members are invited to submit their Jungian and Jungian-related material for publication consideration in the e-journal. Contact the editor for more information regarding submissions: JunginVermont@Burlingtontelecom.net
