Where Are They Now?
Sacred Studies Faculty 1971-79
What keeps you busy now?
For the past two years, at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, I have presented to clinicians a seminar on using creative non-fiction to address and contain experiences of trauma. I've also served for the past six years (since retiring from the English Department at the University of Michigan) on the Jung Institute's Program Committee. I read and write every morning, and both a short story and poem are set for publication next year. I also participate in a "Deepening the Life of the Soul" group (begun by Groton alum James Boyd White '56) and in a Depth Psychology reading group.
