Northern Landscape by Robin Baring Anne Baring, Jungian Analyst - "This website is devoted to the affirmation of a new vision of reality and to the exploration of the deeper issues facing us at this crucial time of choice. I would like it to be a sanctuary for the heart: a place of reconnection and healing between mind, body and soul; a focus for the emerging values that reflect our responsibility towards life, each other and the planet as a whole" - Anne Baring.

A Chorus of Women CDA Chorus of Women. "A Chorus of Women came into being when 150 women filled the Australian Parliament with the song 'Lament' on 18 March 2003, the day Australia's intention to invade Iraq was announced. We have been singing ever since. Like the ancient Greek chorus on which we model ourselves, we have commented on the events of our time. We try to listen to the wise course and seek to activate integrity and compassion in our communities.” from the website. This project is a collaboration with Glenda Cloughley, Jungian Analyst (email) who has written on the nature of Lament from a mythological and topical perspective.
