Care Of Souls: The Cura Animarum

February 22, 2019 @ 11:00 am - February 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

“Learn your theories as well as you can,
but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul.”   
— C. G. Jung

DATES: February 22-24, 2019

LOCATION: Washington State History Museum, Tacoma, WA

CEUs: Up to 18.5 CEU hours for LMFT, LMHC, LASW, LICSW, and associates.


The Washington Pastoral Counseling Association and The C. G. Jung Institute of Seattle are excited to present this outstanding and economically-priced event.

This conference is for depth-oriented professionals longing to foster the central presence of soul in
profession and vocation. We anticipate attendees from multiple professions, such as law, psychotherapy, bodywork, education, religious, and medicine. The focus of the presentations will enhance participants’ deepened awareness of this core Care of Souls tradition and its sophisticated application to their professional practice. The presenters are distinguished by a depth perspective into the Care of Souls tradition for contemporary professions, through a variety of lenses.

Three conference learning goals are foundationally structured into each presentation design. In this
depth psycho-spiritual exploration, you will:
• Review the history of the Western Care of Souls tradition.
• Learn current and evolving applications of this core tradition.
• Imagine how ancient reverence for the Anima Mundi, the spirit of the world, can be restored and deepened.
