NEW SPECIAL STUDY GROUP
Study with Zen Master Genpo Merzel to learn and deepen your knowledge of Big Mind™, a concept rooted in Jungian Psychology and in Eastern Zen.
In 1983 Genpo began studying with Hal Stone, a Jungian analyst who created a therapeutic technique which he called Voice Dialogue. Genpo began to experiment with Voice Dialogue in order to find a way of integrating it with the Zen tradition. Now Genpo combines Zen tradition with the insights of such visionary western figures as Carl Jung, Fritz Perls, and Hal Stone, enabling virtually anyone to realize their true nature, a realization they can further deepen through meditation.
Genpo describes Big Mind as "opening our mind...our consciousness to the infinite". Ken Wilber has described Genpo Merzel's Big Mind Process as "arguably the most important and original discovery in the last two centuries of Buddhism."
ABOUT THE SPECIAL STUDY GROUP
In this four-week course you will study by watching 45-60 minutes of video lectures every week and follow that week's assignments in your study guide. You will also have a chance to interact with Genpo Merzel via an audio conference call done twice during the course.
Who should follow this course: Beginners; Therapists who want to learn some new skill for their personal life and practice; Jungians, as it integrates the Jungian oriented method of voice dialogue and Zen in a Western way as suggested Eastern religion should be approached.

Assisi, Italy Conference 2013
When the Gods Are Silent: Awakening to the Voice of Meaning and Healing
There are times in our life when the vistas of all that we love, are blurred, when those arms we long to rest in seem ever so far away, and the passion that we have felt, is suddenly absent. It is in these moments that we may feel that the Gods have grown silent.
The 2013 Assisi Institute™ annual conference in Italy will take an in-depth look at how it is that we can recover our sense of vitality and meaning in the world, through our dreams, creativity and relationships, and find a way to live with and live through those challenges.
Featured presenters include
: Richard Tarnas, Allen Guggenbuhl, Bonnie Zello Martin, Barbara Thompson, Sandra Salzillo, and Michael Conforti. Click for more details

"Insofar as the writer or artist uses his own conscious experience of human life in his work, he is in-voluntarily also a psychologist.
If he is a truly gifted artist, he finds the best possible expression for what he wants to say, and no psychologist, therefore, can add much insight to it."
-- Marie Louise von Franz

For this series of talks, leaders in the field of Organizational Dynamics and Archetypal Pattern Analysis™ who are responsible for bringing innovation, creativity, and transformation come together to discuss the work of understanding and discerning the presence of these universal patterns, ways for creating the conditions for innovation and transformation within the corporate world.

LECTURE 3 OF THE 20 LECTURE SERIES STARTING NOW. JOIN ANYTIME!
Here's an excerpt from the introduction to Lecture 3 in the Depth Alliance online written discussion forum from Robert Bosnak's colleage and forum moderator, Chris Doggett:
As we go deeper into the distinction between symbol and image, between interpretation and being in an embodied image, what we want is the "internal logic of the images", not our our logic/our understanding of the images. Again, waiting to allow them to reveal themselves as we experience them as Other with it's own "LOGIC" or "waiting for the fruits" of the madness.
"We are real and not symbols." (Elijah talking to Jung in reference to himself and Salome.)
Robbie Bosnak: "This most famous answer which I think is the beginning of a whole new psychology, the beginning of the psychology I most subscribe to and the beginning of the psychology where Jung becomes most original."
