The Wound as Bridge to the Numinous

Free for members, $5 non-members, no pre-registration required

6:30-8:00 pm Forest Hill Church Presbyterian

Wounding is a fundamental part of human experience that can connect us to undeveloped and unknown aspects of ourselves, to deeper experiences of the soul, and to the mysteries of life, which can be numinous. Laura Chapman, Jungian Analyst, will discuss ways in which the material generated from our wounded places can be integrated to shape our consciousness as we evolve.

Solstice Drumming with Dyane Sherwood

  • The First Unitarian Church of Cleveland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Celebrate the Winter Solstice with Drumming Experience

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We received such positive feedback about Dyane's drumming program, we will be offering it again. Ritual and connection to the natural world are central to nurturing imagination and the numinous.

Join us for this gentle opening to what the unconscious offers each of us at this liminal time. After a brief introduction and an optional sage smudging outside, we will pass a talking stick for a check in. People will then make themselves comfortable and open to inner experience, while Dyane drums for 20- 30 minutes. We will segue into a group drumming and rattling. We will again pass the talking stick for optional sharing of the experience.

About Dyane Sherwood, PhD

Dyane Sherwood is a Licensed Psychologist and Jungian Analyst, Certified in both Adult and in Child and Adolescent Analysis, and a Certified Sandplay Therapist. She has taught in depth about Active Imagination to therapists in analytic training, in continuing education workshops, and internationally. Her interest in shamanism came to her through a dream and active imagination, and she later studied shamanism with the late analyst Donald Sandner (Navajo Symbols of Healing, The Sacred Heritage) in the 1990’s. This led to years of traditional Lakota “medicine” training under the guidance of Lakota elder Pansy Hawkwing (Pine Ridge, SD).

“Thomas Kirsch is by now the elder states person of analytical psychology. This is the most personal, revealing and thought provoking interview he has given.” —Andrew Samuels

“Murray Stein’s sensitive and probing questioning allows Dr. Kirsch’s exacting memory of people, places, and issues of different eras in his long life career as a Jungian to flow like the film’s music - with a warmth and beauty that is both touching and enlightening.” —Tom Singer
