Jung on the Hudson
July 23, 2017 - July 28, 2017
My husband, David Merkowitz, and I will be presenting at the New York Center for Jungian Studies’ annual Jung on the Hudson seminar this summer, July 23-28, 2017, in Rhinebeck, NY. The seminar topic is “Brothers and Sisters: Myth and Reality.” My workshop will explore the archetypal resonance of the sibling relationship, focusing on how the flow of archetypes throughout life, and in subsequent personal and professional relationships, can be affected by these early affiliations. Participants in David’s workshop will consider how such connections have been presented in poetry and other forms of creative writing, discuss several works that focus on brothers and sisters, and try their hands at their own written reflections on the topic. The entire seminar has a fascinating lineup of thinkers and speakers. David and I have done several events in the past with the New York Center for Jungian Studies, including presenting at Jung on the Hudson seminars, and always find them richly rewarding. The opportunity to spend several days in a bucolic setting with a relatively small group of participants exploring meaningful topics always produces lasting memories, personal growth, and new (or renewed) friendships. We hope you can join us.
