The C.G. Jung Society of St. Louis held its second Jung in the Heartland Conference, November 9-13, 2011, at Toddhall in Columbia, IL.  Presenters included Laurence Hillman, Jenny Yates, Lionel Corbett, and Robert Bosnak.  The theme of this conference was Portals to the Sacred II.

Last year the Jung Society sponsored a writing contest.  Winning entries were published in a book, Portals to the Sacred from a Jungian Perspective, edited by Christy Beckman.  The book was available at the conference where winners of the top three essays read their entries at a "Authors' Reception."  The book is available for purchase at

As in 2009, this major midwest conference was well attended.   Having all four presenters and several of the writing contestants present for all presentations, meals, and social events at the Toddhall Retreat Center made for a fine spirit.

Some eight hours of the conference presentations were videotaped and will be available on the Society's website ( in the near future.
