Date: May 31-June 1, 2014 (*SATURDAY and SUNDAY*)
Time: 11:00am - 6:00pm
Topic: WORKSHOP: Dying to Live. Presented by Janet Chatwin
CONTINUING EDUCATION: 8 CE's
While on his deathbed Plato was asked to summarize his great work, the Dialogues, in one statement. His reply: “Practice dying.” Today most people do not want to talk about dying, let alone practice it. Our American culture fears death and sees it as the enemy, rather than a natural part of life. There are two levels of dying: The big and the little. Every day we die a hundred little deaths—in losses, in failures, in longing and rejections. We die with every separation and letting go. The little dying is similar to the big dying in terms of process. When we learn to let go and experience the little deaths, it will be easier to let go during the big death.

Janet Chatwin, a native of Salt Lake City, is a former elementary school teacher from Jordan School District. In 2000 Janet left teaching in order to begin graduate school. In 2006 she completed her Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Gratitude Institute in Santa Barbara. While living in Santa Barbara, she received training in Hospice Patient Care and became a volunteer. She now lives part time in Seattle and part time in Salt Lake City where she facilitates workshops during the summer months at her mountain cabin near Oakley, Utah.

Date: June 6, 2014 (*FRIDAY*)
Time: 7 - 9pm (mingle time before and after, with music, tarot and astrology)
Topic: Jung Society of Utah Season Finale: Healing Relationships with Ancestors. Presented by Malidoma Patrice Some
Location: Downtown City Library
CONTINUING EDUCATION: 1 CE
“The endless challenges faced daily in this culture could be traced back to a disturbing relationship with ancestors. This in turn, could be a reflection of the rather dysfunctional relationship forced upon people by the circumstances of modernity. How do we repair, heal, and honor the undying tie with our forbears? How can this reflect on our relationship with this world and with each other in family and in community? These are some of the questions that this weekend will attempt to address. We will engage our ancestors, the good and the bad, the appealing and the less than appealing in an attempt to clear whatever dirty laundry has been the unfinished homework that together we must do. We will learn of their wishes and share ours with them. Together with them we will ritualize our mutual concerns in an initiative that heals our world and theirs.” ~Malidoma Patrice Somé~

Malidoma Patrice Some, PhD is from Brukina Faso, West Africa. He is a gifted shaman and holds three master's degrees and two doctorates. He is a storyteller, author and spokesman of the West African wisdom tradition.

Date: June 7-8, 2014 (*SATURDAY and SUNDAY*)
Time: 9:30am - 10:00pm
Topic: WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A Fire Ritual. Presented by Malidoma Patrice Some
Virtually every ritual work and ceremonial event Malidoma has conducted began and ended with the ancestors. This is because nothing in the ritual tradition of Dagara people can happen without involving the dead. From simple ritual practices such as sprinkling ashes to focus one's intention, and pouring water to invoke peace, to the several-week-long initiations, the names of the dead are invoked, implored and/or simply called on.
In this workshop, participants will journey through Dagara wisdom, remembering that we are, each of us, going somewhere purposeful in life. Through the healing interaction of ritual we will open ourselves to the desires and insistence of the ancestors. Participants will learn the practice of "calling in the ancestors," and experience a deepening of that connectedness with the spirit world. Such practice is appropriate for anyone who, for whatever reason, and in whatever way, calls upon spirit for intervention in their lives.

Buy your tickets here. Discounts available for Jung Society of Utah members.
