Please note that the Board of AST will be on a respite holiday for the month of August. We are reminded of what C.G. Jung said,
. . . your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Without, everything seems discordant; only within does it coalesce into unity. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes. Letter to Fanny Bowditch, C.G. Jung Letters, Vol. 1: 1906-1950
We will respond to your emails & inquiries when we return in September
Many heartfelt thanks to our members who have renewed. Please be sure to fill out your renewal applications, so we can update your information on our records
