Drawing from his book Father, Son and Healing Ghosts, Anthony Moore begins this program with a brief review of Jungian concepts. We will then view segments of the movie Field of Dreams, interpreting images and narrative of the movie from a Jungian perspective. The movie provides a powerful dramatization of how the healing process of the human psyche functions. Using images from the movie as a guide, we will outline a methodology for doing inner work.
The program concludes with Tony's personal account of applying this methodology to connect to his father who was killed in World War II. By telling the story of his father and fellow Marines, he will describe how he came to know his father and overcame the life-long void he felt from his father’s death.
Time will be given for personal reflection and group sharing.
Book available for $11 including tax ($10 for members)

About the Presenter:

Anthony Moore served for 34 years as a teacher, administrator and spiritual director at Georgetown University. His research and teaching focused on the integration of philosophy, psychology and spirituality. Introduced to Jung through the use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in his teaching and organizational consulting, he had taught Jungian psychology for several years when the Jungian images and symbols inField of Dreams revealed areas of his own psychic life that pertained to the loss of his father, who was killed in war without meeting his son. These reflections led to using the movie's images and symbols as a guide to writing  Father, Son and Healing Ghosts, a book recounting his journey, a “journey to wholeness,” to connect to his father. Anthony Moore earned a Ph.D. from Fordham University and a Master of Divinity from the Weston School of Theology. He lives in Falls Church, VA.
