Transforming Our Relationship To Mother Earth

 

This is a critical time in the history of the earth, a time of the destruction of ecosystems and of 
the extinction of species, the end of the Cenozoic Era. Tonight's readings will articulate a new 
mythic consciousness of our profound connectedness to the Earth and of our conscious role in the 
Universe. We are led "to find hope where we might least have thought to look – within our hearts 
and souls, and in our interdependence with all life."

 

Molly Baker is a retired epidemiologist and a student of nature.

The Psyche In the Alembic: Jung and Alchemy

 

Jung’s interest in alchemy, that bizarre blend of early science, religion and spirituality, remains a mystery. 

Nevertheless, many Jungians attach great importance to the effect of alchemical lore on his psychology.  

We will explore that subject through a chapter of Jung’s autobiographical Memories, Dreams, 

Reflections, with some comments by Daryl Sharp of Toronto, just the person to cast a little light on a dark 

subject.

 

        Harvey Shepherd is co-president of the C. G. Jung Society of Montreal and the 
        editor of Anglican Montreal

Fierce Grace: Transformation As Ordeal

 

Like the shedding of a snake’s skin, the process of transformation can be long and painful. It often 

comes unbidden, through trauma, significant loss, or serious illness. How do we navigate our way 

through such experiences without falling apart or losing hope?

Tonight’s readings include reflections on the topic from Kate Burns’s Paths to Transformation: 

From Initiation to Liberation, Ursula Wirtz’s Trauma and Beyond: The Mystery of Transformation, 

and Elizabeth Lesser’s Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow.



Mary Harsany is co-president of the C. G. Jung Society of Montreal and maintains a private psychology practice in Westmount.
