FIRST SUNDAY PROGRAMS 2012 -2013
Exploring aspects and applications of the ideas of Carl Gustav Jung in a variety of contexts since 1983.
Oct 7, 2012* “Jung and Christianity” Jung struggled with the Christian legacy and forged his own
heterodox re-visioning of the archetypal Christian images, opening their potential for personal meaning and
transformation in a time when faith has failed many. We will attempt an honest critique of Jung's project,
and a discussion of its implications for contemporary seekers.
John Michael Hayes, Ph.D., ABPP, psychologist-psychoanalyst in Baltimore, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry,
University of Maryland, he has served on the faculties of the Washington School of Psychiatry, Loyola University, and the
Washington Center for Psychoanalysis.
Nov 4, 2012* “Nietzsche: The Ascetic Ideal” Nietzsche views the ‘ascetic ideal’ as the driving force in
the history of humanity, found in religion, literature, and philosophy. He proposes that it creates aversion to
life, contempt for the world, horror of the senses, denial of will, and fear of happiness and beauty. We
explore his claim that the ascetic ideal is dishonest, being not transcendence, but disgust for existence.

from Trinity College, University of Dublin, and Pacifica Graduate Institute. His interest in Jung’s depth psychology spans 20 years,

Dec 2, 2012* “The Muse” The preternatural, original Muse is Mnemosyne, Goddess of Memory, a river
flowing from the Otherworld of the Unconscious - filled with life sustaining water, as Memory is filled with life
sustaining stories. Old stories beginning “once upon a time” are not fixed by time, but keep this River
flowing through us, in our stories. Bring the stories, poems, and images that fill your spirit, to share.

Feb 3, 2013* “W. B.Yeats and A Second Coming” W. B. Yeats, one of the foremost poets of the
Twentieth Century, was steeped in Celtic Mythology, Theosophy, and other Western esoteric philosophical

with his renowned “A Second Coming,” in relation to ‘What’s going on?’ in our post Mayan calendar era.
