The purpose of our seminars is to bring light to the inner world through the integration of religious wisdom, experiential education 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: June 15-17, 2018

The Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and the Lost Child (Prodigal Son), The Aramaic Lord's Prayer

If we engage the fragments of Jesus' teaching scattered throughout the Gospels apart from Christian traditions that developed later, a path begins to emerge.  

The Way that comes into view is not about Jesus, nor is it about an afterlife.  

These sayings urge each of us to think for ourselves from new ideas, awaken to new values and experience in the now the "Kingdom of God."  

During the June seminar we will inquire into 3 teaching tales that appear together in the Gospel of Luke: the lost sheep, the lost coin and the lost child (more commonly called the Prodigal Son).

In these seminars we place sayings associated with Jesus in dialogue with other traditions, with psychology, poetry and other sources of wisdom. We will explore questions with movement, drawing, writing and conversation grounded in our own experience.

We will also explore 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 without pressure to agree with what is meaningful to someone else. 


Facilitated by Timothy Locke, Ph.D.
