The purpose of our seminars is to bring light to the inner world through the integration of religious wisdom, spiritual practices and depth psychology.

The Guild for Psychological Studies also holds some of its seminars at Four Springs. For dates and information, please see


Awakening the Heart: An Interfaith Approach to the Wisdom of Jesus

We offer seminars on this theme several times each year.

Next seminar: March 23-25, 2018

The Language of Parables, The Aramaic Lord's Prayer

Can you set aside for a moment the many opinions you have heard about Jesus and start a fresh inquiry of your own into the fragments of his teaching scattered throughout the Gospels?

These fragments, carefully separated from later messages about him, urge us to awaken, to live from new ideas and enter in this life what he called the Kingdom of God.

The path that emerges is not about Jesus, nor is it about an afterlife.  It is a path of presence to what is alive in us as we find our way in this life.

This Way leads beyond anxiety, fear and judgment.  It leads to more love, more freedom from mechanical reaction and more room for creative response.

How do we begin, or continue along this Way?

In these seminars we place sayings associated with Jesus in dialogue with other traditions and with psychology, poetry and other sources of wisdom.  We will explore questions with journaling, drawing, music and movement.

We will also practice a form of meditation based on an Aramaic version of the Lord’s Prayer.  In our work together we will each consider our own experience in a community of support without pressure to share or agree.

Facilitated by Timothy Locke, Ph.D.
