SEEKING DEEPER WISDOM

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Gustav Jung

Sister Olga Wittekind is teaming up with Claire Sherman to host a special series on the individuation process: growing into wholeness with God. Come explore the fascinating treasure of Jung’s work!

Jung’s Red Book Seminar: Integrating Jung’s Theory of the Self

T'ai Chi Chih® with S. Claire Whalen (certified T’ai Chi instructor) Thursdays: February 16, 23, March 8, 15, 22, 7-8:30pm $15 per session or $65 for the whole series

Enhance your well being! T’ai Chi Chih® is a series of 19 movements created by Justin Stone in the mid 1970s. The slow continuous movements help to maintain balance, harmony and peace in the midst of our daily lives. When practiced regularly, the benefits reduce stress levels, expand creativity, and enhance our well-being.

This series is particularly well geared for counselors, spiritual directors, and spiritual seekers who wish to deepen their understanding of Jungian psychology for personal growth. If you are interested in one or all of the topics, please call Annette at 812-933-6437. Classes will begin in the Spring!

Clare of Assisi: A Woman Weaving a Dream

Clare of Assisi is a woman of her times and a woman of our times. She spent forty years weaving a dream that has endured as well as inspired women and men over eight centuries. Who is this woman? What does this medieval woman say to me in my 21st century life? Why does the dream endure? During this retreat we will answer these questions and allow Clare of Assisi to walk out of the pages of history into our world. There will be presentations, quiet time and ritual celebrations during our time together.
