Gary V. Hartman Memorial Lecture

 

Gary V Hartman
January 5, 1947 – May 23, 2017

 

A long time I have lived with you
And now we must be going
Separately to be together.
Perhaps I shall be the wind
To blur your smooth waters
So that you do not see your face too much.
Perhaps I shall be the star
To guide your uncertain wings
So that you have direction in the night.
Perhaps I shall be the fire
To separate your thoughts
So that you do not give up.
Perhaps I shall be the rain
To open up the earth
So that your seed may fall.
Perhaps I shall be the snow
To let your blossoms sleep
So that you may bloom in spring.
Perhaps I shall be the stream
To play a song on the rock
So that you are not alone.
Perhaps I shall be a new mountain
So that you always have a home.

In 1979, Gary V. Hartman presented a lecture on fairy tales to a group of people in Kansas City.  This group would continue on to become the Kansas City Fiends of Jung and Gary would continue his close association with them as a teacher, on many levels, until his passing. In tribute to the tremendous devotion he showed to the Kansas City Friends of Jung and to the Jungian community at large there will be an annual Gary V. Hartman Memorial Lecture beginning with the 2017-18 program year.  Gary’s support through the years will be greatly missed and we are pleased to have the opportunity to honor his legacy.  If you would like to give to this annual memorial lecture in honor of Gary, you may either mail a check to the Kansas City Friends of Jung at PO Box 32795, Kansas City, Missouri, 64171 or use the link to PayPal below.
