"The work which is now to be done is to work out the concept of synchronicity. I don't know the people who will continue it. They must exist but I don't where they are."
~ Marie-Louise von Franz
On this occasion we will celebrate the life and spirit of C.G. Jung with cake and refreshments while entertained by our own singer-songwriters, Holly O. and Charell (known as The Vicissitunes.)
Synchronicity Workshop: We will gather in the shade of the garden to share our own personal experience of synchronicity or that of someone we know. Synchronicity occurs when an inner experience is mirrored by an outer event, image or a cluster of images which have no causal connection but are connected by meaning.
What was the meaning of this "personal miracle" to you? What images were evoked? How did it feel to you? Each person will be given 5 to 10 minutes to share... OR you may participate as a keenly interested witness for others.
We hope you will join us for this festive, members-only event.
Space is limited to 25 participants.

In his biography Memories, Dreams, Reflections, as well as in other various lectures and publications, Jung recounts amazing examples of synchronicities which he and his patients experienced in the course of their inner work. Jung made a daily practice of invoking synchronicity using Tarot cards and the
I Ching,an ancient Chinese wisdom system using thrown sticks or coins.
