Michael's talks at the Jung Institute of Los Angeles: Compassion for Others 

Several years ago my study of dreams brought me to write about the situation of racism in America. I was compelled by the idea that African-American dreams could be most deeply understood from the wisdom tradition at the source, and so I began exploring the African origins of black American culture. Eventually I went to Africa and met the Bantu healer Mandaza Kandemwa in Zimbabwe.

To our surprise, as Mandaza initiated me into the medicine tradition of his people, a mystery began to open up between us. I call this mystery "gathering in the names” to offer a twist of sweet plurality to Christ’s insight: wherever two or more are gathered in the name of the sacred, spirit descends, awakens.
