Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

  • The event must take place in Utah.

Jung Society of Utah Weekend Workshop: Water and Grief
Jun 25 all-day
Jung Society of Utah Weekend Workshop: Water and Grief @ Kamas | Utah | United States

Weekend Workshop
A Water Ritual – Grief

Reserve your ticket here: http://griefritual.brownpapertickets.com
Grief is felt every time something contradicts our sense of humanity, separating us from our sense of identity; it is a dramatic event creating a crisis of the soul requiring reconciliation. Emotion is the most natural response and grieving has the same profound strength that love holds, in its shadow side. We are, however, conditioned to suppress and repress these powerful emotions and hold a stiff upper lip through adversity and pain. We have been told that time heals all wounds, and yet we carry a heaviness of heart. It is as though the grief holds us back from experiencing the lightness of spirit and our degree of participation in life.
We are at a critical juncture in our evolution, it requires full out participation to feel the freedom of mind, body and spirit again. Join us in releasing our grief through a community-supported ritual.

Date: June 25 and 26, 2016
Time: 9:30am – 10:00pm
Sunday :9am:-1pm
Location: 1050 South Fork Canyon Road (Five miles from Oakley, Utah)
cost: $250 (incl. camping, dinner / breakfast and drinks) Early bird discount $225
