Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
Shakespeare and the Stars:
Hidden Astrological Keys to Understanding
the World's Greatest Playwright
Speaker: Priscilla Costello, M.A., Dipl. CAAE.
William Shakespeare, the world's greatest playwright, often used astrological symbolism to create his timeless characters and creations, so it is no surprise that his wonderful works are filled with references to the Sun, Moon, and stars!
Most interesting is that he used the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways, creating some of his most memorable characters, including Hamlet and Falstaff. Such references would have been commonly known in Shakespeare's time, but their deeper significance is lost to modern-day playgoers and readers. In this talk, we will examine how character is determined, both in the present day and in Shakespeare's time, and explore the ways in which we can classify and recognize character traits within ourselves and others.

This talk is based on her second book Shakespeare and the Stars: the Hidden Astrological Keys to Understanding the World's Greatest Playwright.
Paths to Wellbeing
Speaker: Susan Tiberghien.
My path is not your path, therefore I cannot teach you. The way is within us…
In this lecture, we will look at how wellbeing has been understood from Aristotle to today. How did Jung approach the subject? With the focus on spiritual wellbeing, we will consider possible paths — paying attention to dreams, to synchronicity, practicing active imagination, appreciating beauty. In so doing we will start to find — to create — our own path to spiritual well-being.
Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Geneva, Switzerland, has published three memoirs and the highly appreciated writing book, One Year to a Writing Life.
