A four-part reading seminar
for the complete series
For info and to obtain readings please call
Michael Vannoy Adams became a
Jungian analyst for love of the imagination. His journey back to this love
followed a circuitous path through Marcuse, Brown, Freud, Melville, Jung,
Raine, Blake and Hillman on to his own thought and practice.
In one of three lectures Adams gave in Moscow in 2011 on active imagination and
the mythical unconscious, he emphasized the “active” and interactive qualities
of this method.
We will read two extraordinary transcripts of one woman’s
active imaginations that allow us to feel as privileged as he does to be privy
to the imagination of another.

Protecting the Environment:
A Practical Approach
Many of us are so divorced from nature that we forget the impact of our
everyday actions. We sometimes feel disconnected and struggle to find meaning
through distraction and over-consumption, unable to recognize what is lacking
in our lives.
This presentation will focus on practical steps that
each of us can take to protect the environment. Participants will be offered a
number of practical strategies to reduce their environmental impact. We will
discuss ways in which residents can work together to reconnect to nature, to
each other and to our communities.
