Holotropic Breathwork™ offers an opportunity to touch the deep well of your own inner healing wisdom. Each session is unique, offering a range of experiences that can include aspects of your personal history, psychological death and rebirth, transpersonal interconnections, and the greater reality to which we all belong. Deeper and faster breathing, a specially designed musical journey, and a safe and supportive setting with trained facilitators are the doorway to a non-ordinary state of consciousness with the potential for deep self-exploration, personal transformation, and healing. Mandala drawing and group processing of the experiences are tools for initial steps toward integration of the journey.

Join Mark Ryan for a four-week course at the Jung Center this May: JOSEPH CAMPBELL'S SEARCH FOR MEANING
Four Wednesdays, May 4 - 25 from 5:30-7:00pm Central time
"No one in our century, not Freud, not Jung, not Thomas Mann, not Lévi-Strauss, has so brought a mythic sense of the world back into our daily consciousness." So wrote psychologist James Hillman about Joseph Campbell. Join us as we explore Campbell's mythological studies, which were grounded in depth psychology and shaped by his own life-long search for meaning. Raised in Irish Catholicism, fascinated as a child with Native American lore, and trained in Western classics, Campbell plunged into Asian thought and religion, and searched to understand the grand historical sweeps of human experience. We will follow his career from his monumental synthesis of "the hero's journey‚" to his later effort to define the meaning of spirituality in a contemporary, globally interconnected world.
Join Buddhist chaplain Ginger Clarkson in this introduction to the classical concept of the five factors that cloud mental clarity and impede concentration. From doubt, to ill-will, to restlessness, these hindrances work to keep us from accessing our own innate abilities to calm our bodies and minds, and to access higher functions such as compassion and equanimity. Guided reflections and brief periods of meditation will give participants direct experiences of freeing the mind from specific hindrances.
