Joan Logghe, Santa Fe Poet Laureate

Jane Lipman, 2009 & 2010 NM Book Award finalist in poetry

RSVP  Jane Lipman, 505-982-0999

How does the outer world fuel the inner?  In this workshop we’ll explore how the outer world serves as muse as much as the inner.  We’ll invite participants to write from their own image-rich lives, dreams, and loves, as well as from the gallery art and from how what is “out there” triggers our own deep responses.

The Art of Self-Compassion and the Craft of Compassion (Workshop)

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Michael Ortiz Hill, referred to as a “magician healer”, is a registered nurse, a Buddhist practitioner, AND an initiated medicine man with tribal people of Zimbabwe.

RSVP to:  Deanne Jameson, 982-7580

The core of Michael Ortiz Hill’s spiritual practice has been the refinement and activity of compassion.  Ortiz Hill pulls from many different religions, practices, and concepts creating a unique blend of both Western and Native approaches to learning which allows participants to embrace his ideas without becoming too didactic.  He personalizes the craft of compassion by sharing his own journey.  “Each participant will find through shared stories a wisdom that sings to their own experience and fuels empathy for others.”  As Ortiz Hill reminds, “Empathy is where two stories run parallel to each other and then meet.”  Participants will do a writing exercise eliciting self-compassion.  Writing will be shared and questions fielded on the way of compassionate activity.  Participants need to bring pen and paper to the workshop.

Ancestors and Spirits of the Dead (Lecture)

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Robin van Löben Sels, PhD,
Jungian Analyst

In the Red Book when Jung left the “spirit of the times” to enter the “spirit of the depths”, he met both ancestors and spirits of the dead and resumed a dialogue with his soul.  I suggest that here and now we can find an “Intersection of the Spirit” which we can experience in our “times” wherein collective consciousness is transformed by a necessary enlargement of Being that includes our ancestors, spirits of the dead, ourselves, and the world we now have.

The Box and the Labyrinth (Workshop)

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Connie Doughman, Artist
Colleen Kelley, Artist
Jeff Strong,
Drummer

Introduction to the ceremony, myth, and structure of the labyrinth utilizing The Box, Remembering the Gift.

For thousands of years labyrinths have echoed through the human unconscious as an archetypal image of wholeness.  Walking the path provides an authentic experience and a metaphorical journey where, held within the circle, one can engage the unconscious.

The Box is a change agent: an interactive, self-guiding journey of initiation, awakening, and renewal.  It is a tapestry of powerful imagery, quotes, symbols, poetry, and prose with food for thought and tales of other travelers.  It is for people searching for their gift, purpose, or mission.  For those who have seen their vision and are ready for change, it offers direction, guidance, and support.  For those already on their path it is a resource, a visionary tool for building community, and a source of renewal.

Speaking to the Daimons in Search of Soul (Workshop)

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Ann Yeomans, Archetypal Therapist
RSVP to Ann Yeomans, 983-6070

Jung’s Red Book is a shamanic journey where he longingly called for his lost soul.  He invited daemonic inner characters or “divine influxes” of the psyche to present themselves, like Odysseus in his voyage to the underworld, which Jung named his Confrontation with the Unconscious.  In his quest he made the move from the literal to the imaginal summoning up his courage and approaching them as though they were real people while listening intently to what they told him.  By the way of active imagination and fantasy he reached uncharted areas of the soul and deepened what he learned by recording his experiences and later working on concentrated paintings to manifest more intensely what he couldn’t explain.  In this workshop we will trace the dialogues with strange figures and bizarre experiences to create our own work of soul.  We will use illustrations from dream work and alchemy to further enact the use of active imagination.

Lois Rudnick, Presenter
Lois is a retired professor of American Studies who taught for 36 years at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She has published numerous books and essays on New Mexico modern artists and writers, including “Utopian Vistas: The Mabel Dodge Luhan House and the American Counterculture”

Lois Rudnick will focus on the famous/infamous salon of Mabel Dodge (before she moved to Taos and became Mabel Dodge Lujan). Dodge’s salon had its heyday between 1913 and 1915 at 23 Fifth Avenue, on the cutting edge of Greenwich Village. Here radical politics, art, feminism and psychoanalysis met, clashed and inspired dreams of a New America.

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Jacqueline West, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst
Monika Wikman,  Ph.D., Jungian Analyst
Sharyn Udall, Ph.D., Curator/Author

In an era short on cultural heroes, Frida Kahlo, Emily Carr, and Georgia O’Keefe testify to the fading belief that painters can convey social and mythic meaning while creating widely memorable images.  All were artists of unique perception and mind whose creative lives show unusual efforts to define themselves both culturally and individually.

I-Ching – Mothering Change: The Shaman of the Shadows (Lecture)

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Stephen Karcher, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized scholar, translator and initiated diviner, teaching and lecturing on the Yijing and other divination systems for over 30 years in the U.S., Great Britain, France, Spain, Switzerland and South Africa.  He “liberates meanings…that have been missing from our understanding for a couple of thousand years…revealing a whole new landscape of interpretation that makes previous translations feel cramped by comparison.”  Stephen was Research Director of Eranos Foundation, Ascona, Switzerland from 1988-1996.

Julie Chase-Daniel

Introduction by Elizabeth Retivov, MSW, Jungian Analyst

Dr. Karcher’s presentations in Santa Fe represent the launch of a new I Ching translation centered on the importance of the Feminine. It was created in collaboration with Julie Chase-Daniel and the website community “In the Family Way”. The lecture is a brief description of what the I Ching or “Change” is and how we can access it. We will look at “Change” primarily as tool for cultural transformation through what is called the Rainmaker effect: the synchronistic effect of inner work to effect change in the world that is impossible through direction action. There will be opportunity for individual questions and will culminate in a group divination.

An Interactive Weekend Workshop on the I Ching or “Change”

We will explore ways in which we can “open our hearts to Change,” as the tradition says, through an encounter with its interactive symbols, letting them deconstruct our habitual patterns of thought and open us to the holographic modeling capacity of the mythological mind. This process is designed to work through what we see as our ancestry and open us to the Ancestors, the Dream Animals that people the deep psyche. The process proceeds not through a heroic journey to bring back the treasures, but by letting the symbols transform our imagination, letting us disappear, as it were, into the great forest of symbols like a painter disappearing into the work he or she has created. A great paradigm here comes from Edith Cobb’s study of the Ecology of the Imagination in Childhood: The child seeks to create a world in which to discover a self.

NOTE: Private consultations by Dr. Karcher will be available during the week following the workshop, location to be determined. Fee is $150; for workshop attendees, the fee is $100.

PLEASE CHECK WEBSITE PERIODICALLY FOR FURTHER DETAILS ON THE WORKSHOP AND PRIVATE CONSULTATIONS.

The Tree of Hope (A Play)

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Patricia Crespin, Playwright
Joe Abraham Dean, Multimedia Artist
Karen Paramananda, Actress
Kieran Sequoia, Director
Produced by Relative Goods Productions

The Tree of Hope is a one woman multimedia  play monologue based on the surreal life of Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter.  These talented theatre artists have captured the dream within the life of Kahlo through spoken word, sound, and multimedia projections.  Many of the insights and images were drawn from Kahlo’s personal diary which shows her tumultuous inner life and her most intimate thoughts.  The performance hopes to draw the audience into the mind of Kahlo.  In order to fully understand her we must understand her obsessions, passions, love, heart, and most of all pain.

The symbolic meanings of the horse go back to prehistory.  The first written acknowledgement of the horse was in the third millennium BC.  Slate tablets referencing the wild horse were uncovered in Elam, present day Iraq and Iran.  The horse is a strong dream symbol of strength, grace, beauty, power, nobility, perseverance, and freedom.  Spanning both sexes it presents and enduring image of the mare and motherhood, as well as masculine strength and power.  The Spanish mustang travels through our imagination into the archetypal images of dreamscapes carrying with it creative inspiration.

Dreamwork in Action: Experiencing the Red Book from the Inside Out (Workshop)

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Ann Hollier, PhD

Carl Jung was a trailblazer.  The Red Book, his illustrated journey into the unconscious through dreams and active imagination, holds a unique position in Western literature.  Yet the journey itself is nothing new.  Jung’s encounters with the growing edge of the Self are what life requires of all of us.  What makes the Red Book unique is Jung’s ability to embrace the process fearlessly while documenting it for us, both verbally and through lush provocative images, with a scientist’s meticulous attention to detail.  Like Jung we are constantly pulled into terra incognita and challenged to integrate parts of ourselves too strange, too powerful, too dark, too wonderful to previously have been imagined – - – or embodied.  The Red Book provides a valuable guidebook mapping this process and helping us embrace the cycle of psychological death and rebirth as a necessary and inevitable part of our own growth.
