Speakers to date.

Geoff Ainscow

In 1968 Geoff sailed from his birthplace of Manchester to become embroiled in the technological and social new age revolution taking place in San Francisco. His life travelled on two tracks, one a daytime engineering and management career at Hewlett Packard in Silicon Valley and the other studying the human maturation process and the state of life on planet Earth. Both richly combined into a life of activism and teaching to spread the knowledge of how Earth works and what humans must do to bring about a sustainable, just and meaningful life. Explosive change best describes my life on Earth, from being born into WWII to a free life in California.

Gregory Brun

Board Director of the Monterey Friends of CG Jung, Grégory is an Ingénieur Agronome (MS, French Grandes Écoles) with an acute interest for scientific epistemology, anthropology and food consumption. He is also a winemaker and a photographer. Bringing together the study of local traditions, geography and techniques, Grégory’s early work concentrated on the protection and the promotion of French wine appellations. Ever since, the dialogue with the Terroir has been the angular stone for the development of his craft in Europe and North America. With a similar focus and a deep sense of place, his photography work is an attempt to discern unconscious material irrupting in the visual world. Inspired by myths and analytical psychology, Grégory’s images illustrate his search for hidden-in-plain-sight characters and patterns.
