Here are two brief extracts from students who enjoyed the course:-
‘Excellent! Your knowledge and presentation skill combine to create a rich learning experience.Thank you for helping me to understand and appreciate Jung so much more.’
‘The seminars have been a delight – Tuesday evenings have been a real treat – What could possibly follow?’
'Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that appears above ground lasts only a single summer. Then it withers away - an ephemeral apparition... Yet I have never lost a sense of something that lives & endures under the eternal flux. What we see is the blossom which passes. The rhizome remains.' (CG Jung)
