Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives by James Hollis

We all live to a certain extent in service to the past and to values of our family of origin. Also can we be seized by the effect of untold stories, by emotions like shame or guilt, by disappointments and the sense of betrayal when our expectations are not met, and/or by complexes or experiences in previous relationships. Those conscious and unconscious dynamics can haunt us, until we are forced to face our pain and fear, and the path of healing becomes clear

Once and Future Christ: Jung and the Future of Christianity

Friday, October 4th 7-9 PM

First Congregational Church on Pine St.

Carl Jung recognized that, for some people, Christianity mediates a sustained and energy-giving contact with the unconscious. However, the capacity of Christianity to perform this mediation has been in decline. For Christianity to survive and evolve, Jung felt it needed to seek wholeness by evoking three long-repressed aspects of the godhead: the feminine, matter, and shadow. In the sixty years since Jung made these observations, there is some evidence that Christianity is rising to this challenge, particularly through the voices of Feminist and Queer theologians, but resistance has been fierce. It remains to be seen if this movement will be sufficient to keep Christianity alive and relevant in the 21st century and beyond.
