On This Journey We Call Our Life

December 6, 2002 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

In his memoir Jung writes, “The meaning of my existence is that life has addressed a question to me…or conversely, I myself am a question.” The depth of meaning which we find along the way is in large measure a matter of which questions we are living, consciously or unconsciously. In this presentation we will consider the character of those questions which, more consciously engaged, add to the richness of the journey and enlarge the individual. Among the questions addressed this weekend, the one we focus on this evening is, “By what spiritual points of reference do I live my life?”
