Founding Fellows and Special Guests
Beauty is the active, living, divine spirit within all things.
Dallas Institute Founding Fellows Drs. Gail Thomas, Joanne Stroud, and Robert Sardello, along with Thomas Moore, were featured participants during this two-and-a-half-day conference celebrating thirty years of spiritual and archetypal psychology, publications, and urban programs at the Dallas Institute, 1981-2011. The conference culminated the Institute's 30th anniversary activities and served as both a reunion of past contributors to the Institute's work and also a serious exploration of the conference title and theme, "Longing for Beauty." Participants included Founding Fellow Dr. Louise Cowan, other Fellows, and special guests.
THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 10, 2011:
The opening day of Longing for Beauty focused on the ground-breaking work in psychology by Robert Sardello, James Hillman, and Thomas Moore, who in the early 1980's collaborated at the Dallas Institute on original "soul work" and went on to achieve their separate distinctions.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2011:
Thirty years of Dallas Institute publications were celebrated, with the focus on French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, whose works on the "imagination of matter" have been translated and published at the Dallas Institute under the direction of Joanne Stroud.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2011:
The final day emphasized the Dallas Institute's work in the city inspired and led by Gail Thomas, whose "What Makes a City?" programs began in 1981.
