"Love is My Religion, free spirits have to soar," sings Ziggy Marley, the Jamaican musician.  Dante Alighieri might agree as written in his Divine Comedy.  Is the 14th-century poet's journey, spanning from despair to the joy of ever-expanding love and consciousness, relevant in our personal lives as well as in today's complicated, polarized, and self-absorbed world?  

Through a retrospective of art, music, and story, we will explore the meaning of Dante's lines, "From one small spark springs up a mighty flare; if I set forth, others may come behind."  As we accept and take responsibility for our complexes with honesty, humility, and yes, humor, does our own "flare" make a difference for those who follow?

A point of reference will be the Divine Comedy through the lens of the Jungian author, Helen Luke's book, Dark Wood to White Rose, Journey of Transformation.  

Anne Pickup, M.A. is a Jungian Analyst in the Washington D.C. area. Past President of PAJA and JAWA Member of IRSJA and founding member of the C.G.Jung Study Center of Los Angeles.
