A Day with...

How has the concept of wholeness been perceived through the centuries? How did Jung answer the longing for wholeness? How do we answer?  In the morning we will consider the practice of journaling, of keeping our own Red Books. We will write journal entries which address our desire for wholeness. We will then look for related images and pursue them in active imagination, writing dialogues and drawing them. We will consider the mandala as a central symbol of wholeness.  In the afternoon we will examine the practice of Zen, of clear seeing and clear writing. What we see clearly, we write clearly. In doing away with distractions, we will uncover our essential oneness. In writing, we will become “whole-makers”.

Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Geneva, Switzerland, has published three memoirs: Looking for Gold, Circling to the Center, Footsteps-A European Album, and the highly appreciated writing book,  One Year to a Writing Life, plus two new titles published in 2015: Side by Side: Writing Your Love Story and Footsteps:  In Love with a Frenchman.  Her most recent book, Writing Toward Wholeness, Lessons Inspired by C.G.Jung was published March 1 by Chiron Publications. She has been teaching writing workshops for close to twenty years at C.G. Jung Centers, at the International Women’s Writing Guild, and at writers’ centers and conferences in the States and in Europe where she directs the Geneva Writers’ Group, an association of 250 English-language writers.
