AN INTRODUCTION TO WORKING WITH DREAMS WITH TOM KAPACINSKAS
On Saturday, June 8th
9AM – 12 noon & 1 – 4PM EST.

  This is a day-long seminar/workshop  devoted to exploring approaches to work with dreams that may be useful for clinicians and spiritual directors as well as interested laypersons.
Consciously or unconsciously, everyone knows that contemporary culture is manic where speed is king. One of the casualties of the pace at which we live is an understanding of the role of the dream in the ecology and psychology of the self. Even less do we have knowledge of how to make use of a dream for psychological and/or spiritual purposes. C.G. Jung, speaking of the importance of dreams,  says: “If you are not interested in your own fate, the unconscious is.” (C.G. Jung Speaking, P. 359)  Jung is getting at what is called the compensatory function of dreams and dreaming. In terms of neuroscience and psychology, the dream will do some of its compensatory work whether or not one consciously pays attention but, as the Talmud indicates, “An uninterpreted dream is like an unopened letter.” In this seminar/workshop we would like to reflect upon what happens when one opens the letters.
With the assistance of Tom Kapacinskas as presenter/conductor, this introduction will afford participants the opportunity to review some of the basics of what is known about dreams from the scientific perspective and that of brain research, and also learn what is available from more than a century of the depth psychologies, principally psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, in the analytic practice setting.
Participants will learn about the object and subject levels of dreams, the technique of gathering associations, reflection and meditation on the archetypal/mythic dimension of dreams, and become acquainted with dream re-entry and enactment, and active imagination reverie.
A good portion of the seminar will be devoted to practicing with participants’ dreams.
Presenter/Conductor: Thomas J. Kapacinskas JD, NCPsyA is a past-professor of C.G. Jung’s psychology of religion in the U. of Notre Dame Department of Theology. A Zuerich-trained Jungian Analyst , he has been in private practice since 1972. Notably, he helped establish the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago and the training programs of both the Chicago Institute and that of the Inter Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. He is a specialist in working with dreams and conducts a private practice of Jungian Analysis in South Bend.
Fee: $100

DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER
On the first Wednesday at 7 p.m. 
Carl Jung believed dreams were direct communications from the unconscious to the conscious, and therefore an opportunity for personal growth. If you’re not familiar with dream interpretation, the process is quite simple: learn to remember your dreams and develop your intuition. But since it’s often much easier to interpret someone else’s dream than your own, we’ll share our dreams in a supportive environment to benefit from each others’ intuitive insights.If you have any recent dreams to share, please type each one up and give it a title. Then bring your written dreams for the group to work on. Love Donation

READING THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA
On the 4th Tuesday 7 – 8:30 p.m. 
Andrew Harvey once said that if he could take only one book to a deserted island “The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna” would be his choice. The book is written in dialogue form detailing the conversations Ramakrishna had with people that came to see him. It records his moods, his songs, his humor and gives one a sense of what it would be like to be in the presence of a Divine Incarnation. Using wonderful analogies, Ramakrishna discusses some of the most profound spiritual topics and his own spiritual experiences. We will stop often for discussion and sharing. I will have extra copies for everyone.
 
SUNDAY CIRCLE OF SILENCE
On Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon. 
Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: “Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly.” Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence. For more information e-mail jhug@michiana.org.
