Journey Into the Wild Mind, Thursdays, October 9, October 23, November 6 and November 20, 2014, 7:00pm - 8:30pm, Classroom D. Join George Wine Chase, a soul journey psychotherapist. The poet Mary Oliver invites everyone to fully engage our "one wild and precious life." You are invited on a journey to discover and use the map of your wild mind. Our "field guide" will be the book Wild Mind by Bill Plotkin. This is not a therapy group or an enlightenment group, though there is no guarantee those won’t happen. Nor is it an invitation to get lost in the distant past of our lives. While the map and exercises in Wild Mind do not
ignore our wounds, the emphasis is on developing each of our innate strengths. The class will include some teaching; however, the focus will be on imaginal and experiential exercises. Between classes people are invited to expand, explore and deepen these experiences. If this sounds Greek but interesting, you are invited to come to the first session and sample the menu to see if you want to sign up for the full meal deal.
First session: Thursday, September 11, 7:00 – 8:30pm, Unity Temple on the Plaza, Classroom D.
Following times will be every other Thursday for five sessions (Sept 25, Oct 9 & 23, Nov 6 & 20).

Suggested love offering: $10/session. For questions and additional info contact: gwinechase@gmail.com

He will describe eight forms of time travel in use by the U.S. government by1970; explain why children were involved in time travel; what future events the U.S. government had prior knowledge of in the early 1970s; and evaluate public policy alternatives pertaining to time travel.   Patrons and PSI members $15, Public $20 (cash and checks only)  www.psychicstudiesinstitute.org
