A conversation with Kenneth Turner, PhD (board member of the Jung Society of the Triangle http://jungnc.org/) Carl Jung, arguably the most important psychologist of the last century, was first a younger colleague, 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 what he termed Individuation, the process of becoming who we were meant to be. He discovered, beyond the personal unconscious that Freud had worked with, a more extensive realm he called the Collective Unconscious – psychic contents and processes common to everybody, everywhere. In this inner world, he found all the myths and ideas of the world.
Our conversation will begin with a short introduction to Jung’s model of the psyche, followed by a description of simple practices anyone can use to explore for themselves whether this approach is useful in managing their own lives. Most of the evening is meant to be interactive, driven by questions and comments of the participants.
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 forty years.

- Ever feel like you MUST have a legitimate reason for saying No?
- Ever get a mean case of the “guilts” when you even think of saying NO?
- Ever feel like you must deliver a long-winded explanation to justify saying NO?
- Ever hide-out from people so you don’t have to say NO?

Take a ride with filmmaker, Suzanne Taylor, a producer of events and projects to evoke a more cooperative worldview, as she engages a fascinating subculture of artists, educators, geometers, philosophers, and farmers who are enthralled by the mystery of crop circles. For twenty years, Taylor was part of a lively international community that gathered in England every summer to study and document circle developments. In the film, shot in Celtic territory in England, where the circles proliferate, person after person attests to what conventional reality says cannot be so as they urge open-mindedness to finding there is a real phenomenon, where, hoaxes aside, crop circles are not being made by us.
“What on Earth?” Is filled with stunning imagery of the circles, and tells their history, going from when they were a worldwide fascination to where our scientific materialistic worldview has closed people’s minds to one of the great mysteries of our time. Evidence is presented that challenges the idea that all the glyphs are made by people, and the motives of hoaxers, who make a fair number of the formations, is a subject for conversation. And it speculates about how knowing the circles come from other intelligence would help us think as a planet and give us our best chance to solve the global problems that challenge us now. If we knew there was other intelligence, we would be one humanity in relation to “the other,” and, as someone in the movie says, “That could be what saves this civilization.

I have been studying the Mayan T’ZOLKIN (sacred spiritual calendar) for the last several years, and practicing a devotional form that is in alignment with both the Mayan calendar and Sufi wisdom. I now have a body of work that includes reflections, stories, prayers, songs, body prayers, breath practices, poems and suggested meditations that I hope to share soon. In the meantime, I am offering an evening presentation about the sacred Mayan calendar and the twenty NAWALES, or Divine Energies that we can align with to help us move through these difficult, changing times.
I have studied in San Pedro, Guatemala, and have experienced powerful Mayan ceremonies in both San Juan and San Pedro, on beautiful Lake Atitlan, surrounded by three volcanoes. I spent the day in ceremony to celebrate the beginning of the new KATUN (5,260 day period) which began on December 21, 2012. The Mayan people who have continued with the ancient ways have waited eagerly for this day for a very long time, since it is predicted to be a new KATUN in which male and female energies will be balanced, unlike the previous ones. The Maya now want their ancient wisdom to be shared, and not kept secret anymore. I feel blessed to be able to share some of this with you. Thirteen Thank Yous, Sweet Honey in the Heart!
Before we heal the Planet we need to first heal ourselves. Come join us in creating Sacred Space with the Guardians of the Directions, (Divine Beings that all ancient and indigenous peoples worked with), to receive healing energies and messages that will enliven your spirit and help you embrace your own heart’s wisdom. After briefly sharing of our experiences we will sit in meditation bringing Light and Love to Mother Earth and All Our Relations.

When Joseph B. and Louisa Rhine joined the newly founded Duke University in 1927, the field of investigation into psychic phenomena was known as psychical research. In 1995, the center was renamed the Rhine Research Center, and today it continues to follow the original mission in its attempt to produce original research and explore the nature of human consciousness. (www.rhine.org)
J.B. Rhine began investigating psychic or psi abilities for which he used the term extrasensory perception (ESP). Three main categories of ESP are:
Telepathy – mind to mind communication through a means other than the normal senses Clairvoyance or Remote Viewing – knowledge of objects, people, or events that are hidden via space or time.
Precognition – knowledge of an event that has not yet occurred, or information that appears to be transferred from the future into the present.
Join Susan Freeman from the Rhine Research center for a fun and informative evening to learn about your own ESP abilities! We will use the historic Zener cards from the early test methods and the current popular Remote viewing. www.rhine.org
I don’t need to tell you that we are living in a time of unprecedented change. All of us are now traversing terrain quite unlike anything we have ever experienced before and we all feel it. It requires great faith, courage, and humor too, when one can muster it.
Finding ways to ground oneself right now feels especially important, and being kind and compassionate to oneself is important too, as personal and collective fears are strongly arising, calling out to be healed and released.
Come join me and experience an evening of hands-on healing. If there is a small group, I will offer short individual healing sessions. If the group is larger I will work with as many people as I am able. Each month’s presentation is unique and a very safe, special and sacred healing space is created. All are welcome, whether or not you with to receive energy work, or simply wish to witness !

Jeannie is also a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur with over 20 years experience. She has been on her spiritual journey for 40 years. Her spiritual journey began at the age of 28 when she began hearing an insistent message, which kept asking her to find out what she came here to do. This message also propelled her into studying a diversity of religions and reading thousands of books. Her endless curiosity led her to topics ranging from metaphysics to science, to self-help and consciousness. Jeannie’s first experience with sensing other presences happened in 1979 – after many months of dedicated meditation and inner work. She found that she could not only communicate with those in spirit but also with the realms of the Ascended Masters and other Light beings.
Since that time, Jeannie has dedicated herself to building a coherent system that includes classes in intuitive development and mediumship, channeling messages from the Ascended Masters and empowering others to access their intuitive gifts. Today’s Jeannie’s classes, workshops and services offer definitive proof that she’s figured out what she came here to do!
