Notes From The Editor

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

Last Wednesday's East Coast blizzard that dumped more than two feet of snow in some parts of Vermont is a powerful reminder that we are in the midst of winter with months to go until spring. Driving can be treacherous at this time of year so, with this in mind, I include some suggestions for those of you who want to stay connected with Jungian events, but don't want to travel long distances to access them.

On February 4th the Asheville Jung Center, NC, is sponsoring a live teleseminar with Andreas Jung, the grandson of C.G. Jung, on his new book, Archetecture of The Soul: The Inner and Outer Structures of C.G. Jung. The fee for this presentation is nominal and, based on what I've seen of the book, is well worth the price of admission. For more information and to register, go to

Here in Vermont Michael Conforti, through his Assisi Institute in Brattleboro, continues to offer an exciting mix of Jungian events both in person and via teleseminar (and he has just released information on the upcoming Assisi Italy Conference this summer, Transcendent Wonder: Peering Beyond the Veil). Whether you choose to stay in the comfort of your home, drive to Brattleboro, or fly to Assisi Italy this summer, you're likely to find a program or event that suits your interests and fits your budget. To find out more about The Assisi Institute's offerings, contact Michael at

Closer to home in Burlington, VT, and just around the corner timewise - next Sunday - the Jung Society of Vermont is screening the film, Thomas Berry: The Great Story. The screening takes place on Sunday, January 23rd at 2:00 p.m., in the Community Room at the Fletcher Free Library. Thomas Berry was a remarkable man and a pioneer in the field of eco-spirituality. For Berry, as for Jung, all of life is interconnected and part of a greater whole. In this visually stunning film, he reminds us that "we are not a collection of objects but a communion of subjects." We hope to see you there. If you would like more information, please call or email me at: 802-860-4921 or

Also, if you would like to submit your writing on a Jungian or Jungian-oriented topic for possible inclusion in the e-journal, and/or if you know of an upcoming event of interest to our readers, please contact me.

With best regards,

Stephanie Buck, ed.
