"The deeper layers of our psyches are constantly communicating with us via symbols. Amid the demands of everyday life we may notice this only in passing, usually first giving it our attention after a dream presents us with particularly enigmatic images and we wonder what it might mean. This program is offered as a small retreat where we will take the opportunity to look at symbolic process, the basis of Jung's work."

"PATRICIA SOHL, M.D., is a graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich and received her advanced degrees at the Harvard University School of Public Health and the Tufts University School of Medicine. Reflecting her twin interests in symbolic expression in healing, she is Curator of the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism at the C.G. Jung Institute in San Francisco and Associate Director of its Clinic. She resided in Denmark for twenty-five years, practicing as physician-psychotherapist at the first clinic in the world dedicated to the rehabilitation of ex-political prisoners who survived torture and live in exile. Her research has centered upon the spiritual aspects of archetypal images in the dreams of individuals, the deeply unconscious nature of somatic symptoms, and the use of �landscapes of childhood� in healing trauma."
