The Dove in the Stone

Finding the Sacred in the Commonplace

Alice O. Howell


“A Jungian lecturer and astrologer searches for the sacred in the commonplace on a Celtic pilgrimage to the Isle of Iona, in Scotland. “Iona,” the Hebrew word for dove, became home to St. Columba, whose name in Latin means dove, in the year 563 on the Eve of the Pentecost — the day of the ascent of the Holy Spirit in the Christian calendar, also symbolized by a dove. And so the narrative goes on, finding synchronicities of understanding at every turn.” 

Time: Saturday, June 17, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.

Location: First Congregational Church, 1128 Pine Street in Boulder (corner of Pine and Broadway)
