I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down.
– Chumbawamba

In the late 90’s these lyrics were a tribute to the resilience of ordinary people. Loss, trauma, failure, or simply the anxiety and fear that come from living with insecurity and uncertainty, can knock us down.

Imagine spending six days in the Blue Ridge Mountains, gathered with a group of ordinary people learning resources for “getting up again.” Carl Jung said, “We are not what happened to us, we are what we wish to become.” At the Haden Institute we believe most people wish to become the best self they are created to be. The Conference will focus on developing greater resilience through dream work, connection with the Divine, improved relationships with others, deeper inner work, creative expression, ritualizing dream messages, and greater cultural and self knowledge. We invite you to join us as we learn to, as Jung would say, “create more and more consciousness, and therefore kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”
