Friday Evening Lecture:
Addressing the loss of soul in healing relationships, Suzanne Hales, Swiss-trained Jungian analyst and storyteller, explores the often-overlooked needs of those called to heal in the current logos-dominated culture in which we live. Healers today are encouraged to banish their feelings to the detriment of their well-being and health. Jung reminds us if we leave the feeling function out of the relationship there is no healing. Suzanne's work provides a voice to the wounded healer in all of us by narrating the stories of physicians, therapists, teachers...and all of those called to heal, lost in a time of great upheaval and change. By inviting Eros back into the fundamental relationship, Suzanne proposes a world where healers can allow themselves to be healed, as well as "the other," supporting the Jungian idea of relationship as a temenos or divine container to both participants.
