Join us for this deep and experiential workshop into Jung’s Red Book, and your own imagination!
Whether you’re brand new to Jung or a long-time scholar, you will experience a journey into this conscious method of experimentation, from which all creative art psychotherapies sprang from.
4 CEUs included for Utah Mental Health Professionals
Don’t forget to join us for the Immersive Talk on Friday, February 10th!
In this workshop, we will dive deeply into exploring the meaning of key visions and fantasies in C.G. Jung’s Red Book, interpreting the text and images in communal dialogue. The core of the workshop will be a guided group practice of active imagination, followed by a writing and drawing exercise that will allow participants to come into an objective relationship with the images that arise.

A Wallace Stegner Center Event:
Effectively measuring water use is essential for water supply planning and water conservation efforts. Gallons Per Capita Per Day (GPCD) is a common metric for measuring water sue but under the surface there are some shortcomings that if not understood can lead to bad comparisons and even worse decisions. Find out some of the strengths and weaknesses of using GPCD and best practices on using it to compare multiple agencies.
Free lunch for attendees who RSVP for in-person attendance.
General water right adjudications are a critical piece of the statewide program to create and maintain a complete record of water rights. The water rights adjudication process helps to bring order and certainty to the water rights record throughout the state by defining existing rights, quantifying unknown rights, and removing unused and abandoned rights from the record through judicial decree. The general water right adjudications provide crucial information that is used by decision makers to tackle Utah’s water challenges, including Great Salt Lake management and Colorado River operations. Additionally, by means of general water right adjudications the State of Utah incorporates reserved rights, including American Indian reservations.
All of the hydrologic areas within the State of Utah are currently involved in a court-ordered adjudication of water rights except the Weber River, Sevier River, and Green River drainages. Presently, the State Engineer’s office — through the district courts — is actively adjudicating in Salt Lake, Utah, Wasatch, Summit, San Juan and Washington Counties. In this presentation, you will learn about the history, procedure, and operations of general water right adjudications from both a legal and administrative viewpoint, so you will know what to do when your client receives a curious notice from the Division of Water Rights.

Combining depth psychology principles with an understanding of the neurobiology of chronic and traumatic stress, we can develop a deeper relationship with ourselves with somatic awareness as a door into the unconscious psyche. Stepping into a more conscious relationship with our moment-to-moment bodily sensations and autonomous nervous system states allows us to work with parts of ourselves that evade our minds and make more conscious choices about how we relate to others and how we participate with the collective conscious and unconscious forces around us and in us.
