“Death is psychologically as important as birth, and like it, is an integral part of life.” (Carl G. Jung)

The vibrant Maine Jung Center offers the Brunswick and wider community a rich array of programs exploring the works of analytical psychologist Carl G. Jung. Founded in the late 1980s, the Center offers an annual free lecture in honor of Mildred E. Harris. In her passion for Jungian works and therapeutic practice, Mildred was a co-founder and major supporter of the Jung Center. This year the Center is excited to give tribute to another of its significant co-founders and participants: Paul Huss, as the 2016 Mildred Harris Lecturer. He presents his FREE talk, titled “Life After Life: A Jungian Psychological Perspective,” on Friday, October 21, 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

Paul Huss, DMin, a pastoral counselor and Jungian analyst who trained in Zurich, the original home of Jung’s work, was an integral member of the Maine Jung Center for nearly thirty years. Paul, and his wife Marilyn, were well-known residents of Brunswick. Recently retired, they’ve relocated to Blue Hill. Paul served the Maine Jung Center in a number of capacities, and was a well-respected teacher, known for his gentle spirit and depth of knowledge. In high demand, he taught a wide range of Jungian topics, and his course offerings always filled to capacity. Paul was also a popular lecturer at various Jungian associations in the Northeast. During his three decades in Brunswick, Paul maintained a lively private practice in Jungian analysis. He contributed also to the Boston C. G. Jung Institute’s training program through committee work, teaching, and supervision of training candidates.

In his Mildred Harris lecture, “Life After Life,” Paul steps into exciting territory and explores Jung’s life-changing vision and dream which followed his near-fatal heart attack and near-death experience in 1944. Jung argued that “a man should be able to say he has done his best to form a conception of life after death… Not to have done so is a vital loss.” Because “life after life” remains a mystery, Jung urged us to turn to mythologies and other manifestations of the unconscious, dreams and visions, in our quest for understanding of death and “life after death”. Paul walks us through these psychological experiences and possibilities in this presentation. The Mildred Harris lecture is open to members and non-members.

The Friday night lecture is followed by a Salon discussion group Saturday morning, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, facilitated by Jungian analysts Teresa Arendell and Chris Beach. (This event requires registration and carries a fee.)
