“Breaking with Tradition or Expanding Tradition?”
The C. G. Jung Society of the Triangle’s season opening speaker is not a Jungian analyst. And a single presenter is not featured. The 31-year-old non-profit organization decided to break with tradition in two ways: it is sponsoring a non-Jungian analyst for the first time. And it is hosting two lecture/workshop leaders, a husband and wife team from the professional staff at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland. The presenters are James Kepner, PhD, and Lourdes Quiroz Kepner, MA. The October 10th and 11th event is entitled, “Awakening the Dream: Gestalt Practice with Dreams, Fantasies, Stories and Symbols.”
The Kepners will describe and contrast the Gestalt and Jungian orientation to dreams and symbols. And they will use six guides derived from Gestalt theory for experimenting with elements of dreams, fantasies, stories, and symbols. The lecture and experiential workshop is designed for those in the helping professions as well as for the general public.
James Kepner, PhD, is a psychologist and the author of “Body Process,” a classic in Gestalt therapy, and “Healing Tasks,” for working with adult survivors of childhood trauma. He teaches internationally on the application of Gestalt Body Process Psychotherapy for trauma survivors and those concerned with stress and illness. Jim is the co-originator of Nervous System Energy Work. He taught
“The Radiance of Energy, Body, and Consciousness” in early April 2014 at the Esalen Institute in California.
Dr. Kepner is deeply devoted to energy arts and spiritual development and the appreciation of the body as our means for manifesting soul. He has been a student of martial arts, including 17 years of study in Ba Kua Chang and Tai Chi.
Dr. Kepner’s wife, Maria de Lourdes Quiroz Kepner, is a Gestalt therapist and trainer who co-founded UPAD Gestalt Institute in Guadalajara, Mexico, and was academic director for Maestria en Desarrollo Humano at ITESO, Universidad Jesuita de Guadalajara. She teaches Gestalt Body Process Psychotherapy and is certified in Nervous System Energy Work.

Join us for September Jung Society Movie & Discussion Night
Nobody's Fool is a 1994 American comedy-drama film based on the 1993 novel of the same name by Richard Russo. It stars Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith, Dylan Walsh, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Gene Saks, Josef Sommer, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Philip Bosco. The film was written for the screen and directed by Robert Benton. It was Tandy's final produced film before her death on September 11, 1994. It was released 3 months after her death.
Paul Newman plays a man approaching retirement age who is getting by working construction jobs in a small upstate New York town. There is great warmth and humor in this portrayal of a man on the downhill slope of his life, who is still trying to find a way to live his life with some degree of integrity, while learning from his mistakes, and learning to be a better father and hopefully a useful grandfather.
Location: Lee and Terry Lawrence’s home Kinsale Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27517. For directions, call 919 604-0427.
