My belief is in the blood and flesh as being wiser than the intellect. The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us. It is how we know that we are alive, alive to the depths of our souls and in touch somewhere with the vivid reaches of the cosmos. –D.H. Lawrence
Through poetry, psychology, and perennial wisdom, a holiday season view of the Incarnation – being embodied souls in the world.
In this presentation, David explores an understanding of incarnation from the integrated view of a progressive Christian framework (enlarging the concept—actually, the myth—of Jesus’ birth as the Incarnation, God becoming flesh), aspects of Jungian and archetypal psychologies, and the understanding of the psychological-spiritual work, the Diamond Approach, of which David is a long-time student and retired teacher. The Diamond Approach, as founder A. H. Almaas writes, “is a dynamic, evolving, teaching that leads to openness, freedom and realization of the many dimensions of our human potential—especially the amazing secrets of our spiritual nature.”
David is a retired minister with a private practice in spiritual direction, and a longtime member of the C.G. Jung Association of Central Ohio, currently serving on JACO’s program committee. He recently moved to the Chicago area, near his three children and eight grandchildren.
