  • Myths

Welcome!

For over fifty years, the Guild for Psychological Studies has conducted seminars that bring together the depth psychology of Carl Jung, the Records of the Life of Jesus (Synoptic Gospels), the Hebrew Scriptures, and material drawn from myth, poetry, world religions, and the evolving images of modern culture and science. Using a process based on Socratic inquiry and dialog, seminar participants carefully attend to images and feelings, discover connections between the personal and collective psyche, and often find a new commitment to the deep and unfolding truth that has been called the Self or Soul.

You are invited to use the menus at the top of each page to explore the seminars we offer, read about upcoming events, learn more about the people of the Guild, view a growing collection of resources, and find out how you can participate in or contribute to the Guild’s work. You can use the Contacts link or links throughout many other pages to ask questions about the Guild in general or any particular seminar. Don’t forget to browse the boxes on the right side of the home page to see the latest Guild news.

Fire Update

October 13th, 2017|Comments Off on Fire Update

Many of us have of course been concerned about our Guild members and facilities and how they might have been affected by the wildfires. So far, the fire does not seem to be getting closer to Four Springs. However the Angela Center, where we’ve had a number of our summer seminars, has apparently been destroyed or badly damaged and their website says they are closed “for the foreseeable future.” Guild people in the Santa Rosa area are OK, including Patricia and George Stenger, Lynne Anne Forest, and Rosemary Hayes (the latter two were evacuated from their senior housing).

 

Anxiety and Joy

July 3rd, 2017|Comments Off on Anxiety and Joy

We’ve just finished our Anxiety and Joy seminar at the Angela Center in Santa Rosa. We had a rather large group with diverse backgrounds, including several younger folks. Using a variety of texts ranging from Gospel parables and stories to the Parsifal legend and the Serenity Prayer we included practical techniques for dealing with anxiety and deep intuitions into the mysterious connection between these two primal human experiences.
