About The Presentation

Wholeness requires recognition and assimilation of opposites.
Carl Jung

With Jung’s insight in mind, we’ll first identify the benefits and the sorrows in our individual lives and next observe the ways they are interwoven.  Loss and having, distress and joy, even doubt and faith are interconnected.  We’ll write to see how the threads of our lives intertwine, and we’ll discover relationships that help us ascent to grief, as well as gratitude, as components of fulfilled lives.  Participants will take from this interactive workshop a handout adaptable for various uses.
