Civilization in Transition IV
"Seeking Dialogue in a World of Closed Minds"
Thursday, October 30 - Sunday, November 2, 2014

He was a voice crying out in the wilderness when he first spoke of a coming spiritual crisis, a grave danger to civilization, if not to all human existence. Today Carl Jung's warning is our lived reality.

Allan Guggenbuhl will be the fourth annual keynote speaker at the Civilization in Transition gathering, held this year in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Allan will be joined by poet Peter O'Leary (luxhominem.com) from the University of Chicago, as well as Austin, Texas analyst Wynette Barton. The conference is intentionally limited to ~28 people to keep it cozy and intimate. The public, clinicians and analysts are all welcome.

Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the US, perhaps second only to New Orleans in its capacity to bewitch visitors with its ineffable sense of place and spirit. Remember, too, Jung's visit to this part of the world nearly a century ago when he met at the Taos Pueblo. The conference will be held at the IHM Retreat Center (ihmretreat.com), a brief 10-minute walk to the art galleries and restaurants on Canyon Road.

Many have set aside time for some rest and relaxation at Ojo Calient (ojospa.com) and/or 10000 Waves (www.tenthousandwaves.com).

General conceptions of a spiritual nature
are indispensable constituents of psychic life.
– C. G. Jung

A Religion of One's Own

Personal religion is both an awareness of the sacred and concrete action arising out of that awareness....This new approach looks to formal religions for insight but it takes root and flourishes in an individual life.
–Thomas Moore

Dr. Moore will be speaking from his newly released book, A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World.

Saturday Workshop
Shaping Spiritual Practices into a Religion of One's Own

Taking specific lessons from C. G. Jung, Georgia O'Keefe, Emily Dickinson and Henry David Thoreau, we will explore treating ordinary daily practices as elements in one's own religion.

Thomas Moore

Thomas Moore, PhD is the author of the bestselling book Care of the Soul and fifteen other books on deepening spirituality and cultivating soul in every aspect of life. He has been a monk, a musician, a university professor, and a psychotherapist, and today he lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, psychotherapy, and the arts. He lectures frequently in Ireland and has a special love of Irish culture.

He has a PhD in religion from Syracuse University and has won several awards for his work, including an honorary doctorate from Lesley University and the Humanitarian Award from Einstein Medical School of Yeshiva University. Three of his books have won the prestigious Books for a Better Life award.

He writes fiction and music and often works with his wife, artist and yoga instructor, Hari Kirin. He writes regular columns for Resurgence, Spirituality & Health, and The Huffington Post. Much of his recent work has focused on the world of medicine, speaking to nurses and doctors about the soul and spirit of medical practice.

Thomas Moore

"Two decades ago, Moore's book, Care of the Soul, touched a chord with millions of readers yearning to integrate spirituality into their everyday lives. In A Religion of One's Own, Moore expands on the topics first explored shortly after leaving the monastery. He recounts the benefits of contemplative living but also the more original and imaginative spirituality that he later developed and embraced in his secular life. Here, he shares stories of others who are creating their own path. Moore weaves their experiences with the wisdom of philosophers, writers, and artists who have rejected materialism and infused their secular lives with transcendence.

"At a time when so many feel disillusioned with or detached from organized religion, yet long for a way to move beyond an exclusively materialistic, rational, lifestyle, A Religion of One's Own points the way to creating an amplified inner life and a world of greater purpose, meaning, and reflection."
–New York Times

Past Events

SALON ~ A gathering of people in someone's home, often following the Augustan Era, Roman poet, Horace's definition of the aims of poetry--to please or to educate. The familiar phrase "carpe diem" was a main theme of Horace's poetry. Literally translated as "pluck the day," some suggest it may be best translated as "enjoy" the day. The first salons emerged in Italy in the 16th Century and flourished in France in the 17th and 18th Century.

Friends of Jung-South is pleased to join the grand salon tradition by offering small gatherings for the purpose of education and enjoyment, bringing together the principles of logos and eros.
