Jung and the Mandala: Workshop at Cirque Lodge
September 30th
Date: September 30th
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm
Location: 777 N Palisade Drive    
Orem, Utah 84097
Cost: Free (including 3 CEUs) 

"The Mandala is a symbol of wholeness that tries to embrace the whole"; so said Carl Jung in an interview in 1957. Among the other things he said at the time were that the Mandala is the main archetype, an alchemical union of the circle and the square and often is an expression of either the Deity or the Self which he believed to be psychologically related. He also said that Mandala imagery often arises in dreams or other forms in times of psychic chaos or tension, offering compensation in the possibility of an inner order, a periphery and a center, bringing a sense of centering and healing to the whole. In this workshop we wish to explore and celebrate Jung's deep wisdom about the healing power of Mandalas: Hindu term for a sacred circle.

Jung developed the use of Mandala creation originally for his own personal soul work. He later expanded its use as a therapeutic technique to draw out images or "cryptograms" that he believed revealed the state of the Self in a given moment or day. Mandala creation can be a useful inner work tool for centering oneself or a client and can provide a glimpse into the Soul, inner-being of an individual.

We will discuss the origins of Jung's use of Mandalas for inner work or in therapy with clients. In the context of the workshop you will have an opportunity to create your own Mandala, and if you desire, share about the image and experience with others. There will be time to ask questions about using Mandala drawing in your own inner work as well, and if you are a clinician, how you might incorporate their use into your work with clients.

Gift and Purpose with Malidoma Somé
October 3rd
A five class web seminar Gift & Purpose : 
in discovery and implementation


Enroll HERE.

Have you ever felt like you're here in this world to do something specific, good and big, but can't seem like you know what it is? Do you know that you have a gift and wonder how best to bring it into the world? Do you feel like a person of service who does not know what to serve? Are you trying to share the gifts you know you embody while feeling like all kinds of obstacles are blocking you from doing just that?  Are you aware of your gift and purpose already; yet feeling inspired to deepen your relationship and experience with it? If any of the above rings a bell, you are invited to this online course.

In indigenous Dagara culture each person comes into this world with, and as a gift. The purpose of life is to deliver the gift using a style that is personal to maximize elegance, ease and beauty. This means that gift makes life purposeful. 

This course that comes with a study guide is intended to empower you as you bring forth your gift out into the world, to help you recognize and acknowledge it, and to embrace it in the style that is consistent with who you are. In our core, we all want to contribute that which defines us as people of service.

The introductory course will situate gift and purpose within cosmology and mythology with a mind to capture its concise definition to help everyone including those who already have an idea of their gift, but are not sure; as well as those who have no clue at all.

At the  first official web class, we will dissect the notion of Gift within our existential state with a mind to examine the existence of various branches of it. We will lay out the tools with which to identify them. But more importantly, we will stress the danger of living outside of the Gift as well as identify the benefit of living with it.

At the  second web class we will address the meaning of Purpose and the life events that inform it. We will define Purpose in relation to gift and steer your imagination toward becoming confident with it.

The  third web class will focus on the interconnection between Gift and Purpose with a mind to highlight the ways in which the one informs the other. Knowing your Gift clarifies your Purpose; not always the other way around. 

Once you know your gift and purpose, then the challenges of implementation become an unavoidable focus. This will be the topic of  web class number four. The art of dealing with obstacles and adversity while sharpening your style of delivery is a must.

During the  fifth and final web class, we will expand on the choreography of the gift with a better look at the destination of it. This will bring our focus on to community as the principal target recipient and the very reason why we come into this world with a gift.

Class Dates: 
Tuesday, October 3rd
Wednesday, October 18th
Wednesday, October 25th
Wednesday, November 8th
TBD

Times:  8:00 - 9:00pm EST ( 5:00 - 6:00pm PST)

Cost: $125 (including audio and video access of the live event + Study Guide).

"I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, a mandala, which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time... Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: ... the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well, is harmonious." 
- C.G. Jung

Carl Jung used the Sanskrit word mandala, meaning "magic circle," to describe the circular drawings he and his patients created. While mandalas have been used throughout many ancient traditions, including Buddhism and Hinduism, Jung is credited with introducing these images to the Western world. Jung studied mandalas extensively, finding a great deal of potential symbolic meaning in them. He intimately associated them with psychological and spiritual health.

Jung created his first mandala in 1916, before learning about the Eastern tradition. And he used mandalas as an important component of his work with patients, as well as in his own personal development. Believing that mandalas were archetypal  forms representing the Self, or total personality, he referred to them as "archetypes of wholeness." Jung discovered that dreaming of or creating mandalas is a natural part of the individuation process, and he encouraged his patients to create them spontaneously. When a mandala image appeared in a patient's artwork or dreams, he found it usually indicated progress toward new self-knowledge.

Mandalas have gained a great deal of visibility and attention in modern western culture recently, and with good reason. Although the word "mandala" itself is of Sanskrit origin and the best known examples of Mandalas come from Asian traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism, the symbolic use of the circle and the square is a universal human archetype.

Burton Fullmer experienced the symbolic power of mandalas during his own healing journey before becoming a clinical counselor, and on September 30th 2017 he will present a free workshop on mandalas at the Cirque Lodge in Orem. After his own encounter with mandalas and what they symbolize, Burton found Jung's reports of the mandala work that he and his patients experienced.

A mandala can come to the mind in different ways. One approach is to consciously draw one, a practice that Dr. Jung employed for some time in his personal life. But he also noted that mandala imagery arises spontaneously in the psyche, often in dreams and particularly during times of trouble. Bringing together a circle and a square in a spontaneous image is an expression of stability in a center, and of that reconciliation of opposites which is needed for wholeness.
