In-Person at Mercy Center Burlingame

Event details

A conference for spiritual directors and all who seek liberation to love more fully.

Jung wrote, ”When love rules there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. One is the shadow of the other.” (vol.7, par 78) Narcissism and controlling power are destroying the environment, leading to divisions and war. Yet, love is the greatest power in the universe and how do we liberate it from its shackles. This is the spiritual journey. Come away for the weekend to rest and renew in one’s deepest desires.
