Know Thyself: The Wisdom Toolbox

Our topic at the NWA Friends of Jung for this coming year will be Know Thyself: The Wisdom Toolbox. We’ll be discussing various tools for inner work such as dreamwork, active imagination, free association, the enneagram, typology, meditation, creative expression, ritual, prayer, spiritual practice, mindfulness, retreat, soulcraft, journaling, and others. Please comment on this post with any thoughts or further ideas about this topic, for ongoing discussion between meetings.

    This year I’m satisfied with exploring some of the strategies for the individuation process or the acquisition of wisdom (not sure of relationship between them). Because there is much wisdom in the group, I hope we can have sessions where a member (or two) is responsible for leading the session(s) (e.g. Sheila on the Enneagram) so that our discussions will be somewhat more focused than last year.
    All of the topics listed appeal to me. With active imagination, I am also interested in lucid dreaming. A consideration of old age, a psychological state of wisdom/non-wisdom, also interests me. Helen Luke’s “Old Age” provides some thoughts.
