Notes From The Editor

Dear Friends of The C.G. Jung Society of Vermont,

We begin this issue of Jung in Vermont with Luanne Sberna's clinical paper, Psychological Type and Archetype, presented this past March 28th at the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington. Luanne's presentation was both scholarly and accessible, and was well-received by the twenty or so people attending. I am delighted to say that many of you at this event are becoming familiar to me because of your attendance at society events and I hope to get to know you by name as well as by face as I see you at future events. Keeping this in mind, the next society event happens on April 14th when Chessie Stevenson, a Jungian Analyst with a practice in Waitsfield, presents on Jung's Red Book at Montpelier's Kellog-Hubbard Library - check the This Month section for more information.

We follow Luanne's clinical paper with an essay by Sue Mehrtens entitled Jung and the "New Dispensation" which focuses on Jung's understanding of religion as distinct from that of the collective. Please note: we continue to experience editing issues in moving submitted material onto the blog site - you will notice spacing issues in Sue's essay and we apologize for this.

Next we have news of upcoming events from a number of psychological groups, two in Vermont and one in Massachusetts, that will be of interest to both practitioners and non-practitioners alike. These organizations are: the Vermont Association of Psychoanaltic Studies (VAPS), Vermont Associaiton for Psychological Type (VAPT), and the New England Society of Jungian Analysts (NESJA). Go to the News From... sections for dates and topics, etc.

We hope to see you at Chessie's presentation on the Red Book on April 14th and we'll keep you posted about the Friends of The C.G. Jung Society Reception on June 26th in Waitsfield.

As always, we'd love to hear from you so let us know what types of events and activities you'd like the society to include in our fall program. Members are invited to submit Jungian and Jungian-related work for publication consideration.

Best regards,

Stephanie Buck, Editor
