Quote of the Day

I hear the tender words from Zion
I hear Noah’s waterfall
I hear the gentle lamb of Judah
Sleeping at the feet of Buddha
And the prophets from Elijah
To the old Paiute Wovoka
Take their places at the table when they’re called
I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all

—from the song “I Hear Them All” by Dave Rawlings and Ketch Secor

Bridging East and West

The Asheville Jung Center is presenting a Global Web Based Seminar on Thursday, September 20, 2012, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST. The title is “Bridging West and East: C.G. Jung and Richard Wilhelm, a Fateful Relationship.” Richard Wilhelm was a German sinologist, theologian, and missionary who was most well known for his translation of the I Ching. Presenters are Murray Stein, Training and Supervising Analyst at the International School of Analytical Psychology (ISAPZurich) in Zürich, Switzerland;  Bettina Wilhelm, granddaughter of Richard Wilhelm and a professional filmmaker; and  Shiuya Sara Liuh, a Training Candidate at ISAPZurich and a psychotherapist in practice in Taipei, Taiwan.

In 2012 Bettina Wilhelm  published an 87-minute documentary, “Wisdom of Changes,” about her grandfather and the I Ching. You can view the trailer here.

For the story in Carl Jung’s words, here is an excerpt from Memories, Dreams, Reflections.
