Jung Society of Utah:
Lecture: Catching Fire: Imagination, Creativity, Activism:
Workshop - Your One Wild and Precious Life
Catching Fire: Imagination, Creativity, Activism
Imagination precedes change—the psyche is activated by stories, role models, and dreams that touch soul. Passion and imagination precede creativity or activism on behalf of ourselves and others. Fierce compassion says, “enough is enough!” Outrage in defense of what and who we love invites us to find the strength to rise up to save what we love, a precious part of ourselves or of our world. Loss, defeat, grief can also precede creativity or activism. The pandemic has brought us into liminal space and time—when we as individuals are between “what was,” and “what next?” Will we have the courage to be creative and catch fire--or give up and give in to what numbs us? Jean is an activist and an author who speaks from experience.
Workshop - Your One Wild and Precious Life
The premise of Jean Bolen’s Jungian and spiritual perspective begins with the certainty that it matters what we do with our “one wild and precious life,” a quote from the poet, Mary Oliver. Most of us have an innate sense that there is a purpose to life related to the idea that life is a soul journey. To do what we came to do and be who we were meant to be is not easy. Especially in the midst of unchosen circumstances which now includes a global pandemic. Vulnerability and loss are both mythic and deeply personal experiences--as is aging. What now? Jung’s individuation, Campbell’s finding your personal myth, the hero or heroine’s journey, Persephone’s abduction into the underworld, Hecate at the crossroad, Hermes and Artemis are archetypal patterns that can provide insights to support us on this soul journey. But, even more specific insights can come through dreams which can bring back into consciousness that which we forgot or suppressed. Will we learn from our dreams? Will we let intuition and synchronicity guide us?

“The Gifts of Liminal Space and Time”
Women’s Perspective; Conversation between Jean and Nina Simons,
co-founder of Bioneers, host-participant, Rosemary Williams:

“Like a Tree: How Trees, Women, and Tree People
Can Save the Planet”
with Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen
In this time of ecological and social upheaval, Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen returns us to timeless wisdom found in her book, “Like a Tree.” Gloria Steinem says of this poetic and inspirational book, “Like a Tree is the rare book that not only informs, but offers a larger consciousness of life itself.” This remarkable book grew out of Jean’s practice of walking among tall trees and also mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood. How many of us recognize that we are “tree people? Jean’s presentation covers the subject of trees from anatomy and physiology to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, and issues a call to learn from and protect our environment. She speaks about deforestation, global warming, and overpopulation, as well as the work of individuals and organizations to save trees everywhere. Her presentation is a strong and positive call to ecological activism and spiritual reflection.

“Transformation or Decline?
The Global Pandemic Crisis and Personal Second Half of Life Parallels”
Jean Shinoda Bolen
The second half of life is a prime concern of Jungian psychology. Individuals are shaped by family and cultural expectations; it is a liminal phase between "what was" and "what next?" An awareness of the passage of time makes real the potential time remaining. The coronavirus pandemic brought these issues to the forefront globally. When there are major life changes, losses and disruptions of life as usual, there is unrest in the psyche; depression and anxiety come to the surface. Whether personal or collectively, a crisis is a time of danger and opportunity.
In this presentation, Jean Shinoda Bolen will explore the questions: Are there symbols of transformation emerging? Will we go forward or regress? What about our creative and spiritual life and resources? Do we feel and heed what we may be called to do? The qualities that can see us through are "love, hope, perseverance, trust and gratitude."
