Using the Opposites to Explore Our Inner Worlds

A conversation with Kenneth Turner, PhD (Board Secretary for the Jung Society of the Trianglehttp://jungnc.org/

The smaller integers (0, 1, 2, 3, etc.) are what Carl Jung has described as ‘Archetypes,’
objects wired into our unconscious minds as human beings which form the broad
general structures of our inner lives. We see this in very practical ways when we consider out desires and aversions – which the Buddhists early recognized as the driving motivations of our lives.

Good and bad, hot and cold, dry and wet, light and dark, the list of
opposites is endless. Yes and no, 0 and 1 are also at the foundation of logic, mathematics, and computers – really at heart, logical machines. By examining how
the opposites function in our reactions to life events, both inner and outer, we can come to a better understanding of how our inner machinery operates, and with effort, attain more control over what would otherwise be automatic reactions. In addition to discussing the implications of these ideas, some techniques will be presented for utilizing them to improve our daily lives.

Carl Jung, arguably the most important psychologist of the last century, was
first a younger colleague and later a rival of Sigmund Freud. In contrast to
Freud’s materialistic model of our human nature, which sought to increase
happiness by adjusting us to the demands of society, Jung had a more expanded
view of humanity. He sought, not adjustment, but becoming who we were meant to be as individuals, a process he called ‘individuation’.

Kenneth Turner brings a variety of life experience to his work with people. He earned a PhD in Physics (Princeton, 1962), an MA in Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology (University of West Georgia, 2007), and passed the National Counselors exam. He has been an astronomer, an administrator, a federal bureaucrat, an executive at a high tech start-up company, a college professor, an entrepreneur, and a psychotherapist. He has married, helped raise children (his own and others), lived abroad, been widowed twice, and retired. Kenneth holds certifications in the Body Centered Transformation work of Gay and Katlyn Hendricks, and in the Enneagram approach of Kathy Hurley and Theodorre Donson. He is an authorized facilitator for the Institute of Noetic Sciences Conscious Aging program and has been involved with Jungian psychology for more than fifty years.  http://jungnc.org/

CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY

VIDEO & DISCUSSION NIGHT ~ 2nd Sunday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm

We are at a crossroads in our history. We are on the precipice of destroying our habitat, the very earth that gives us sustenance and supports life. Our multiple challenges of climate change, deforestation, overgrazing, fisheries collapse, food insecurity, and the rapid extinction of species are all part of a single, over-arching problem: Humanity has overshot the carrying capacity of the Earth.

Join with others willing to honestly face our situation and have the most important discussion of our lives: how we pull out of our ecological nosedive and transition to a life-affirming global culture, an earth community of sustainability, justice, and peace!

We show a different video each session and discuss a range of important issues and options to address them.

For detailed information on each session, see https://betseydowning.com/upcoming-events/ . Information will be posted 5-6 days prior to the event.

LIVE CHANNELING OF YESHUA AND MARY MAGDALENE BY MERCEDES KIRKEL

Hear Mary Magdalene and Yeshua channeled live by multi-award winning author and channel, Mercedes Kirkel. Listen to Yeshua and Mary explain the meaning of the Holy Grail. Receive a CHRIST-CONSCIOUSNESS + MAGDALENE-LOVE blessing from Mary and Yeshua. The messages from Yeshua and Mary Magdalene are universal and are not affiliated with any religion.

“Mercedes Kirkel is one of the clearest channels of Mary Magdalene known to humankind. Her material seems to access the same aspect of Magdalene as found in the original Gospel of Mary Magdalene—one of the ‘lost’ books of the Bible.”—Michael Mirdad, Spiritual Director, Unity of Sedona

“Mercedes is the real deal—I felt the unconditional love of Mary Magdalene and Jesus filling the room. Mercedes’s transmission to each person was very powerful and there were many tears.”—PC, Sedona, AZ

“The message from Mary Magdalene resolved key questions I’ve had all my life. The energy was palpable and the message entirely accurate. I’m still reeling from the internal shifts and realignments!”—Trinity Thomas, Austin, TX

Mercedes Kirkel is a multi-award-winning author and channel for Mary Magdalene and Yeshua. In 2010, Mary Magdalene began coming to Mercedes daily, giving extraordinary messages for humanity’s spiritual evolution. That was the birth of Mercedes’s first book, Mary Magdalene Beckons: Join the River of Love. The focus of that book is the sacred partnership between the Feminine and Masculine, including how our bodies, sexuality, and emotions are pathways to God. The second book, titled Sublime Union: A Woman’s Sexual Odyssey Guided by Mary Magdalene, contains Mary’s instruction on sacred sexuality, along with Mercedes’s fascinating story of engaging the practices with her partner. Mercedes’s current work comes from both Yeshua and Mary Magdalene together, focusing on the Holy Grail and the quest we all came here for. All of Mercedes’s messages are universal and are not affiliated with any religion.

Based out of Chapel Hill, NC, Mercedes offers online courses; private channeling and coaching sessions via phone and Skype; and Magdalene-Yeshua Heart-Retreats. Learn more at:
