This event is LIVE and FREE. All registered participants will receive the RECORDING.

An informal monthly get-together to discuss books of significance for the Pari Center community.

Hermann Hesse’s Steppenwolf is a surreal, dreamlike narrative deeply influenced by his encounters with Carl Jung. In this writing, Harry Haller, the steppenwolf, mirrors the author in a stark psycho-confessional account of an exploration of the unconscious. Harry’s tumult and suffering portrays what may be seen as a path through purgation to synthesis on a journey that keeps redefining itself, transformation upon transformation. Steppenwolf mirrors the dark side of the human psyche and invites the reader to participate in shadow, in a movement into its chaos, through it, and to integration.

Each month we will meet with a guest presenter/moderator to discuss a book of their choice that probes important aspects of our focus—Physics and Philosophy, the work of David Bohm, Indigenous Ways of Knowing, Jungian Concepts, Gentle Action, Creativity, the Arts, Ethics, Community, the Sacred.

Caroline Pawluk has explored extensively the life and writings of the author of Steppenwolf, as documented in her thesis, “Fragments of a Great Confession:” The Process of Synthesis in Hermann Hesse’s Writing

Caroline has been involved in dialogue over the past 30 years and has presented online for the Pari Center on David Bohm dialogue. She is a longtime meditator.

David Schrum is a quantum theorist whose larger focus has become inner exploration and group enquiry through dialogue. He had a long connection with physicist David Bohm and his work on consciousness. 

Schrum has been involved in local and international dialogues of various kinds for 40 years. In more recent times, he has written and presented on consciousness and inner exploration.
