Jung in the Heartland Conference - Healing Through the Numinous

The C. G. Jung Society of St. Louis held its third major Heartland Conference September 5-8, 2013, at King's House Retreat Center in Belleville, IL.  The conference was a huge success.   Jean Bolen, Monika Wikman, and Laurence Hillman, speakers at the event, presented variations on the topic of healing--physical, emotional, and psychological healing.  Leah Friedman opened the conference on Thursday evening with a ritual during which each attendee introduced him/herself.  Dr. Friedman also closed the ritual at noon on Sunday.  Additionally, the three winning entries in the writing contest on the same theme, healing through the numinous, read their essays during the Authors' Evening on Saturday.  The Society has published a book of the best contest entries which is available for order on the Society website,

The major presentations were videotaped.  Both video and audio of the presentations will be available for purchase soon.  Go to for more information.

Planning is underway for the next writing contest to be held in 2014 and for the next conference scheduled for the Fall of 2015.  Information will be available on the website soon.
