OCT 4 - CLEARING CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELDS. Areas of great trauma and suffering, like battlefields, Ground Zero,
and Holocaust camps, become saturated with dense, heavy energy, a collective residue that hangs like a shroud over
them. Our presenter began doing energy healing work, including cleansing desecrated land, four years ago. She will
talk about her healing practice, and her journey with an angelic being and guide who transformed her life and work.
Stacia Blanc, a Special Education teacher for nearly 25 years, was led by her encounters with spirit to a new vocation, and

NOV 1 - MUSIC, MIND, AND BRAIN: Symbols in Das Rheingold, first Opera of Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung.
Das Rheingold, the most mythic of the four operas that comprise the Ring cycle, deals with gods, giants, dwarves, and
the theft of gold, in settings including the bottom of the Rhine, a descent into Earth and a castle in the sky. Wagner
used German and Norse myths, techniques from Greek Tragedy and various philosophical approaches to portray his
grand view of the world and history. Discussion of Wagner and his life, with selections from a DVD of the opera..

DEC 6 - PARAPSYCHOLOGICAL EXPERIENCES IN PRISON: Dreamwork Behind Bars. Extraordinary things
happen in prisons. In solitary confinement, men are restricted to their cells 23 hours a day. With nowhere to go, some go
out of body. Others put themselves in trance, contacting spirits of dead relatives. Some experience supernatural
warnings. Although con games and manipulation thrive in prison, inmates’ dreams remain valuable to both diagnosis and
treatment, as the primary process language of the dream can’t be faked.

maintains a small practice in Frederick. Author of Voices Behind the Wall: Ninety Prison Stories, and a work in progress,

FEB 7 - DREAM-DRAMA: Theater of the Soul. The interplay between dreams and theater goes back to the ancient
Greek dream-drama cult of Aesculapius (the God of Healing). Active imagination, or ‘dreaming the dream on’, leading
to catharsis, arose within the context of theater, and was used to heal the dreamer and the community of dreamers.
We will explore a synthesis of Moreno's psychodrama and Jungian dream work as a descendant of this archetype of

MAR 7 - INNER TRUTH: Vibrational Healing, a newly published book. In 2005, the wounded healer archetype caught the
author in its web as he sought treatment for Lyme disease which western medicine had been unable to help. Thus began
a journey that would take him on a healing quest across the ocean to Wales, following the trail of Bach and Bach’s flower
remedies. The discoveries he came upon, both in the variety of alternatives to Western medicine, and in the personal
awakenings to his own ‘inner truth’ about self healing, are the subjects under discussion.

APR 4 - PAST LIFE REGRESSION IN THERAPY AND DREAMS. The book, Soul Survivor brought past life dreams
into the public eye through interviews with a child who had night terrors from a past life plane crash. Three BJWG core group
members who have been involved with this subject for many years, lead a discussion of past life case studies and dreams.

MAY 2 - MEDIUMSHIP AND THE MEDIUM. Jung had a lifelong interest in the paranormal, including mediums,
spirits, and life after death. Janet Cyford, a traditional British Spiritualist Medium, will talk with us about her background
and personal experience as a Spiritualist, the mechanics of Mediumship, Spiritual healing, altered states of
awareness, inner attunement, and Mediumistic development. Using symbolism and analogy, she shares her
knowledge of an afterlife beyond death. Janet teaches “The highest form of Mediumship requires a self discipline that
enables us to express the Divinity within.”
