For the lecture, Jane will speak to Jung's article from the Collected Works Volume 8, The Soul and Death, as a focus for consideration. She will also speak about recent post-Jungian understanding of the soul that is discussed within the International Society for Psychology as the Discipline of Interiority.

For the seminar, Jane will lead us through a stimulating session on the Grimms' Brothers fairy tale, Godfather Death.  On Saturday afternoon participants will view and discuss Shadowlands, a feature film to help touch into ways of appreciating our own sense of dying, grieving and the work of soul and of death in our lives on both a personal and a societal level.

About the Speaker, Jane Smith-Eivemark

Jane began her career in spiritual care in Toronto within the University Health Network over 30 years ago. Over the years she has worked with Providence Healthcare in Vancouver, the University of Alberta and The Royal Alexandra Hospitals in Edmonton, Hamilton Health Sciences and The St. Joseph Health System (based in Hamilton, Kitchener, Guelph and Brantford, Ontario) before taking on her roles with Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga. She retired from institutional healthcare in October of last year.

At this time Jane is giving her heart over to work within our society with those who are committed to shift to an attitude that appreciates more fully that death is part of life. She views death as an integral part of soul work. She is also involved with education that helps our society to make deeper connections for unhoused people to have better support to live more healthily.
