T. S. Eliot and Carl Jung Retreat

  • Roslyn Retreat Center 8727 River Road Henrico, VA, 23229 United States (map)

During this early fall retreat at Roslyn Retreat Center, we will explore how T.S. Eliot’s poems “Four Quartets” interface with Jung’s concept of individuation, allowing for deeper guidance along our own spiritual paths. Jung said, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakens.” This program provides a portal into the heart, mind, and body as we hold space for this exploration.

Margie Matheson’s art images relating to Eliot’s quotes will add a rich component for contemplation, manifesting into a personal art collage.
