at Eranos


To receive the secret of the spirit with reverence, to bring the expressible with awakened mind to expression, and to know the inexpressible is always present, the work of Eranos is in this spirit.”

—Adolf Portmann,
25 Jahre Eranos

This monument, which dates from the early days of Eranos in the 1930s, is dedicated to “the unknown spirit of the place.”

Each morning we will travel via shuttle to Eranos from the piazza outside our hotels. Once there, we will walk up ancient steps, through gardens, and over terraces to Casa Eranos, where Psyche and the Sacred: A Depth Psychological Approach to Spirituality will take place. We recommend that you wear walking shoes to Eranos, as the terrain is uneven and may be unreliable in places.

Each day at Eranos our program will include a morning and afternoon session led by Pacifica faculty member and author, Dr. Lionel Corbett. There will be mid-morning and afternoon breaks for refreshments, as well as a two-hour lunch break with a lavish buffet. Participants will have ample opportunity to explore and enjoy the surroundings. Swim in the lake, take in the natural beauty, or sit in casual conversation at the infamous round table where Jung, Eliade, Kerényi, Neumann, and many others established their network of ideas and relationships.

At the conclusion of each day’s sessions, we’ll return to Ascona with plenty of time to enjoy the sunset, a drink with friends, and a delicious meal at one of the town’s many restaurants.
