Colleen Hendrick replied to Norland Tellez's discussion Why Giegerich?
"Touche on the distinction between meaning and experience in this context. Is it possible to view Jung's "promise" of meaning not as a concealment of threatening aspects of the modern condition, but as engagement in the eternal, whether comfortable…"

Colleen Hendrick replied to Norland Tellez's discussion Why Giegerich?
"Yes, I totally agree that Giegerich's voice is an important counterpoint to the Jungian ideas that have been distorted by pop culture's need to feel good. The Soul's Logical Life is an important read for anyone interested in the rigor of this work."

"Hi Paul,
 
I have a heavy schedule these next two weeks, so the option is great. I will forward something on about the 10th of February.

Colleen Hendrick replied to Paul Budding's discussion Erich Neumann and Jungian Psychology
"Hi Paul,
 
What a healthy post. It becomes so easy once we are a "group" to withdraw our questioning, not voice doubts or other ways of perceiving. What particular Neumann work are you referring to? Or are you referring to the body of work? And,…"

Colleen Hendrick commented on Robin Reynolds Barre's blog post From The Tuesday Journal - The Task of the Depth Psychologist
"I think this opens up a great discussion, Bonnie. I agree that when we judge we become part of the polarization, and I know that we must all take stands or become wishy washy - though our stands mustn't be rigid and habitual, but porous enough to…"

Colleen Hendrick replied to Dorene Mahoney's discussion What are different forms of dreamwork that work well for you? in The Twilight Zone--Dreamwork
"Yes, the plums are out of step with the season is it... I am developing my skills with Michael Conforti of the Assisi Institute and I work with some private clients."

Colleen Hendrick replied to Dorene Mahoney's discussion What are different forms of dreamwork that work well for you? in The Twilight Zone--Dreamwork
"I mean honoring the symbol exactly as is - say one has a dream of picking bushels of plums in the winter. Plums are not available in the winter so the dreamer is somehow out of alignment with the image of nourishment, abundance, whatever. The plums…"

"Great suggestions, Ed and Colleen. I have Answer to Job but have never read it (although the book of Job in the Old Testament is perhaps my favorite book). Also, I've always been fascinated by the Holocaust and the mob mentality that overtook people…"

Dorene Mahoney commented on Colleen Hendrick's blog post The D'mba Headdress of the Baga as an Expression of the Great Mother Archetype

  • Colleen, if I haven't said it before, I want to tell you how glad I am that you are in The Twilight Zone and Encountering the Numinous. I facilitate these groups and invite you to share your ideas and interests with us!

    Sincerely,

    Dorene

  • Printing as I type. Bonnie's suggestion was a good one to possibly grab more people.

    I'll read and reflect back. Thanks again.

  • Wonderful!!!

    The mask I have held as most important to me was a mask by a shaman in given in Costa Rica. Their tribe is dying along with their culture's living stories, now only explained in books. I will read the article with great interest.

  • I'll give it to you.

    Life is all theatre/ritual and its magic (meaning of the mask). Masks also make more conscious the fact that we all project our inner vision upon the outer object. Masks just help increase that energy. What say you?

  • Hi Colleen - it must have been my doppelganger in VT! - That is one state I have never been to yet, but hope to one day soon! If I sound familiar, perhaps we've met elsewhere. This really is a small community of people who are passionate about Jung and Depth Psych.
  • Welcome Colleen,

    I am quickly connected in that I have a selection of drums with which I periodically use in meditation. Love the picture as well. I'm going to look fmore deeply into the website after I get over my jet lag. Also happy to see your presence in several groups already!!!

    Ed

  • Hi Colleen. So happy you've joined the Alliance, and especially that you've come through our relationship with Assisi Institute. Welcome!

    What an amazing web site you have! I hope you'll list your events here in the community so others can at least fantasize about attending one. The dancing and drumming looks incredible.

The D’mba headdress of the Baga people of Guinea West Africa was first recognized and recorded by Europeans in 1886, yet definitive understanding of D'mba remains elusive.[i] There are several reasons for the enigma surrounding D’mba’s meaning and function. First, the Europeans that initially encountered her relied on the Susu people of the region to name and describe her. That is the reason why she is still referred to by the name of Nimba, which is the Susu word for…
