Spirit River Sojourn

September 18, 2009 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

With the advent of the Aquarian age, a growing number of individuals are turning inward in their search for a meaningful connection to the mystery of life.  This evolution of consciousness was brought home to our presenter when, several decades ago, she read  a letter from the Spirit River Dream Analysis and Research Center located in a tiny settlement in the Peace River Country of central Canada requesting an affiliation with the C.G. Jung Institute in Los Angeles.  Dr. Sanford and her analyst husband answered the call, and journeyed to this remote community to present lectures and films.

Among this small group of pioneering souls, one woman’s psychic commitment, as evidenced in her paintings and dialogues, stood out.  Dr. Sanford kept in touch with this woman over the course of her life, and tonight she presents her friend’s art and writing as a testament to the power of the inner connection to psyche that enriched her friend’s life and supported her journey toward death.
