What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Three of our members, John, Pablo, and Saundra, will report on books that each of them has recently read and wishes to share. The books are—Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out? by Bill McKibben; Jean Baudrillard’s Fragments; and Michael Pollan’s best-selling How to Change Your Mind: What the new Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence. We will enjoy a general discussion after each presentation. We look forward to a lively literary evening for all.
Jeff will present a summary of his work and lead a discussion on the ways biological research on the differential function of the two halves of the human brain have impacted our understanding of spirituality and consciousness. Jeff received his doctorate in Depth Psychology from Pacifica and is rector of St. James Episcopal Church.
We have begun a new book! From the back cover of the book, “…Jung and Pauli discussed the nature of dreams and their relation to reality, finding surprising common ground between depth psychology and quantum physics and profoundly influencing each other’s work. This portrait of an incredible friendship will fascinate readers interested in psychology, science, creativity and genius.” It’s never too late to join this group.
We will follow Robin’s experience of making art from the unconscious and how it can inform the artist’s comprehension of the subject. Join in as she takes us on a journey of synchronicities and art-making from the depths of the psyche and the Sea of Cortez, to brushes with Sri Aurobindo and the ashrams of India. She will share her resulting alternative photographic series that inspired a look into human origins, an exploration of consciousness, and a new view of our liminal place on Earth in uncertain times. Robin is a Carmel artist who recently exhibited this work at the Monterey Museum of Art.
