Jung Society of Utah presents: Alchemy of the Inner Marriage @ A Ray Olpin Student Center, Saltair Room
Apr 10 @ 7:00 pm
Jung Society of Utah presents: Alchemy of the Inner Marriage @ A Ray Olpin Student Center, Saltair Room

The Jung Society of Utah presents:

The Alchemy of the Inner Marriage

“Consciousness is trying to move from power to love.”

Marion Woodman

Carl Jung believed that the culmination of the Soul’s journey is the inner marriage of the opposites within the psyche: masculine/feminine; conscious/unconscious; divine/human. The essence of individuation is the alchemical transformation from Ego -centered consciousness to the Soul- centered consciousness of the Sacred Inner

Join us for an evening of myth, dreaming, storytelling, poetry, lecture and dialogue as we explore the creative, transformative, and visionary potential of the conscious

Feminine and Masculine within each of us. Drawing on the work of Carl Jung, Marion Woodman, Robert Johnson, and John Sanford, we will investigate how the Feminine and Masculine archetypes, in both their positive and negative aspects, inform our sense of meaning, purpose and wholeness, the quality of our relationships, and our ability to tend to the “soul of the world” in the face of seemingly insurmountable. Theresa Holleran L.C.S.W is a Depth Psychotherapist, teacher, and facilitator with over 38 years of experience. She has taught graduate courses in Transpersonal Psychology, Eco-psychology, and Process Work, and has co-created national and international retreats and sacred journeys in both urban and wilderness settings on themes of embodied healing and transformation, suffering, wisdom and resilience, and the Sacred Inner Marriage. Her work is predicated on knowing that each person has an inherent destiny that can be revealed through the exploration of the unconscious and its effects on consciousness, and that personal individuation is directly tied to the fate of our planet.

Symposium – Faith and Reason, Conscience and Conflict: The Paths of Lowell Bennion, Sterling McMurrin, and Obert Tanner @ 4/11 Lecture: SL Main Library (210 E 400 S) / 4/12 Symposium: Tanner Humanities Center (215 S. Central Campus Dr, Rm 143)

Symposium - Faith and Reason, Conscience and Conflict: The Paths of Lowell Bennion, Sterling McMurrin, and Obert Tanner @ 4/11 Lecture: SL Main Library (210 E 400 S) / 4/12 Symposium: Tanner Humanities Center (215 S. Central Campus Dr, Rm 143)

Mormonism is often seen as a religion of conformity, with a hierarchy in tight control of members’ beliefs and behavior. Yet this perspective misses a rich tradition of intellectual independence and principled dissent. With an eye to the present and future, the University of Utah’s Tanner Humanities Center will offer a unique Symposium on the lives and legacies of Sterling M. McMurrin, Obert C. Tanner, and Lowell L. Bennion. All events are free and open to the public. More information at www.thc.utah.edu.

To keynote the symposium, Professor Kathleen Flake (Richard L. Bushman Chair of Mormon Studies at the University of Virginia) will deliver the 23rd annual Sterling McMurrin Lecture on Religion and Culture. In her lecture, titled “The LDS Intellectual Tradition: A Study on Three Lives,” Flake will consider the intellectual loves and conflicts of McMurrin, Tanner, and Bennion in relation to the religious culture out of which they came.

Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom
Apr 19 all-day
Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom

The Inter-Tribal Student Association hosts its 42nd traditional powwow on Saturday, April 19 at the U’s Olpin Student Union. This year’s theme is “Sustaining Our Culture.”

The powwow is an excellent opportunity for communities to come together and join in dance and song.

“This is a long and proud tradition at the U,” says Octavio Villalpando, associate vice president for Equity & Diversity. “It is a wonderful way for the U to support American Indian students and community, honor their contributions and help others learn about their history and culture.”

Day’s Events:

9 a.m. — Registration

11 a.m. — Arena Blessing

Noon — Grand Entry

5 p.m. — Dinner Break

6 p.m. — Grand Entry

10 p.m. — Closing Song

Participants

Host Drum: Midnite Express

Master of Ceremonies (MC): Tyson Shay

Arena Director: Nino Reyes

Spiritual Advisor: Bob Taylor

Head Man: Patrick Willie

Head Woman: Miss American Indian Woman Scholar 2014 (to be announced)

Color Guard: Utah Intertribal Veterans Association

Powwow Etiquette

1. Always stand respectfully during special songs. These include the Grand Entry, flag songs, veteran’s songs or any other song the MC designates. During these songs, men should remove their hats.

2. Pay extra attention to the MC for various announcements about the event and type of dances.

3. Ask permission before taking photos of dancers in regalia. If the photo is for publication or commercial use, this should be explained before the photo is taken.

4. The correct term for a dancer’s outfit is regalia, not costume. Never touch a dancer’s regalia. Many of the ornaments have religious meaning and are cherished family heirlooms.

5. If you see a lost or dropped feather, do NOT pick it up. Notify the nearest staff member, veteran, Head Man Dancer or Arena Director immediately.

6. Pointing with the fingers is considered poor manners by some tribes. If you must point, use your head and nod in the direction you wish to indicate.

7. Feel free to join in the inter-tribal dances by invitation of the MC.

8. Do not ever cross the arena floor! Do not go into drum circles. Stay on the perimeter. If a drum group is singing or about to sing, do not approach the drum.

9. Last of all, powwows are meant to be social events. Make a new friend, eat some food, visit the vendors… have a great time!

If you have any questions about any of the above etiquette or would like to know more, please ask an ITSA member. Also, most dancers, singers, elders and staff are happy to help.
