Assisi Institute
The International Center for the Study of Archetypal Patternss
Psyche and Soul in the Aging Process
Assisi Italy
July 11th - 18th 2017

As you journey towards Assisi, you pass by seemingly endless fields of Sunflowers.  Girasole, the name for sunflower in Italian, means to turn to the sun.   As you watch the daily sojourn of these wondrous flowers, they literally turn throughout the day to face the sun. So too, as we age, psyche seeks to turn us, to orient us to a new understanding of our lives and of the path now in front of us.  

  In aging we face eternal, and spiritual questions about life such as:  Are we living the life and destiny that was meant for us? Do we deeply love our children, spouse,and friends? Have we found a way to live with our transgressions, and create a rich tapestry of a life?   While there is an archetype of aging, there is no map which captures how we should live and age. This has to be discovered through what Hollis calls, "This Journey that is our Life." In Italian the word scordare, refers to forgetting. It also means to be out of tune. Here we see the implicit relationship between forgetting and being out of tune, and by contrast to the relationship between remembering, and being "in tune" and attuned in the aging process to the ways of Psyche, Soul and Self.

I hope you will join us and a truly incredible faculty for this week of conferencing in one of the most beautiful and sacred sites in the world- Assisi, Italy.

An Evening of Chanting and Meditation


Monthly Sound Healing Circle


Sound Healing is the use of sound as a form of vibration that can favorably impact our bodies and minds in many ways. In this monthly group, the focus will be on developing and using the voice to engage in making sound in many forms. Our intention will be to bring balance, harmony, insight, spiritual connection, mental calm and more, into our lives. Group 'toning', in which open vowel sounds are vocalized on the length of the elongated breath, will be a major vehicle for this work. An aesthetically beautiful and powerful experience, group toning truly demonstrates the enormous potential of sound as an important tool for mind-body health and well-being.

Shelley Snow, Ph.D., M.T.A., is a psychotherapist, music therapist and the founder and director of The Dorian Centre. She conducted the first major study by a music therapist on sound healing for her doctoral research in 2011. She has been exploring this field for many years, has led workshops on sound internationally, and is currently collaborating with neuroscientists at McGill University on a study of toning. She has incorporated work with sound into her Music Psychotherapy work and conducts Sound Therapy at the Centre.

Date of 1st group: Sunday, November 30th 
Time: 4:00 - 5:30 pm 
Cost: $20
