Abyss of Terror or Divine Source of Creativity?

05/09/2014 @ 8:00 am - 05/10/2014 @ 5:00 pm

May 9th and 10th, 2014, M. Mae Stolte, Jungian Analyst

The Void: Abyss of Terror or Divine Source of Creativity?

“In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep…” Genesis 1:1

The notion of the Void has been part of the human experience since the beginning of time. Many Creation myths speak of the Void as the ‘before’ of what is known and reflection on the end of life takes us to the Void as the ‘after’ of life as we know it. In both our individual as well as collective experience the Void is usually associated with silence, emptiness and darkness and/or with loneliness, nothingness and meaninglessness.

Location: Lecture: Hickman Room 110, U Vic

Process Oriented Psychology – One of C. G. Jung’s Daughters

01/31/2014 - 02/01/2014

Stan Tomandl, MA, PWD, a founding member of the Jung Society of Victoria, received his degrees from the Process Work Institute in 1996. In 1998 he and Ann Jacob joined as husband and wife team in their Victoria practice, Process Oriented Facilitation.

“I began reading Carl Jung’s Collected Works 35 years ago, while staying up for the night calving shift, ranching in the Cariboo. I finished reading the Collected Works in Victoria while attending university to learn more about people and less about cows! I was also studying body work. Wondering how Jungian psychology and body work fit together, I discovered ‘Somatic Consciousness’ by Arnold Mindell [Quadrant, V. 14, No 1. 1981]. I said to myself, “This guy has saved me 20 years of research.” I was hooked and have been on the Process Oriented Psychology trail ever since.

Marlene Schiwy – James Hillman and the Soul’s Code


We dull our lives by the way we conceive them. We need a fresh way of looking at the importance of our lives. Looking for the acorn affects how we see each other and ourselves, letting us find some beauty in what we see and so love what we see. In The Soul’s code: In Search of Character and Calling, James Hillman, the founder of Archetypal Psychology, offers an inspiring and provocative vision of how we create meaning in our lives. Marlene Schiwy, Ph.D. will focus on Hillman’s “acorn theory” and the role of the “invisibles” in our lives—what it means to live our lives in relationship to beauty, mystery and myth.

Lecture Location: University Victoria
Workshop Location: Sleeping Dog Farm Retreat

February 1 and 2, 2013 – Dr. Karen Evers-Fahey PhD

02/01/2013 @ 8:00 am - 02/02/2013 @ 5:00 pm

February 1 and 2, 2013 – Dr. Karen Evers-Fahey PhD Karen lives, teaches and practices in Victoria. Her lecture and workshop will focus on Dreams and Individuation in the Second Half of Life. She is interested in the ways that the psyche supports and encourages development of the soul in individuals as they enter their 5th, 6th, and 7th decade onwards. This, Karen suggests, is when development of the inner world takes centre stage as achievement in the outer world becomes less urgent. See: or Google: Karen Evers-Fahey PhD (RCC).
