3) A brief report re the 2016 conference, Earth/Psyche: Foregrounding the Earth’s Relations to Psyche. Inez has already received a submission for the conference and inquiries about it. It seems that JSSS members at the Yale conference stirred quite a bit of interest. The call for proposals and site information are now available on our website, www.jungiansociety.org

The organizing committee consists of myself, Susan Wyatt, Alexandra Fidyk, Susan Rowland, Rinda West, Elizabeth Nelson, Luke Hockley, and Robert Mitchell.

So far: Inez has a signed agreement from La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe; Susan Rowland is organizing student support; Aaron Mason, a student, is exploring the possibility of a gallery having an exhibit related to the theme of Earth/Psyche; Susan Wyatt has contacted Jungian organizations in Santa Fe. Robert has sent the call for proposals to the membership and to Jungian organizations.

Proposals are due by December 15th, 2015.
The call will be send out again in October as Susan suggests. Proposals and communications re the conference should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Looking forward to receiving your proposals! Inez
