Steven Herrmann - Spiritual Democracy

Exploring what the author calls the "shaman-poets"—Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, and Emily Dickinson—Spiritual Democracy demonstrates how far ahead of their times these writers were in forecasting developments of our current time. It was Whitman who first wrote of "Spiritual Democracy" as a vision of transformation and global equality. Steven Herrmann delves deep into the visionary expressions of this idea of Spiritual Democracy—"the realization of the oneness of humanity with the universe and all its forces"—in these early American writers, showing the influence the groundbreaking work of the geologist and thinker Alexander Von Humboldt had on Whitman and others. Writing that every member of the global community regardless of color, gender, or sexual orientation can realize these freedoms, the author explores how one can tap into the vitalizing source of equalizing, vocational energy to bring a sense of purpose and peace. Although the book shines as a work of literary criticism, the author's insights as a Jungian psychotherapist take the reader ever deeper into the creative impulses of Whitman, Melville, Dickinson, and other poets in their crafting of the seminal notion of Spiritual Democracy.

Steven Herrmann has published over thirty papers and two books, William Everson: The Shaman’s Call and Walt Whitman: Shamanism, Spiritual Democracy, and the World Soul. He has taught on the subjects of Whitman and Melville at the C. G. Jung Institutes of San Francisco, Chicago, and Zurich, as well as at the Washington Friends of Walt Whitman, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz.

We are conversing on current events and reading a fun contemporary novel. We set a time for a grammar segment and tense review. 
 
“It is the most fun I have had in years. Josette manages to make class fun (and funny), yet informative and instructive.  I have learned so much in just 8 weeks. She also manages to direct the class with students who have a wide range of skill levels, which is extremely difficult to do. She creates an environment where no one is inhibited or afraid to speak, no matter their ability.  Her class is a treasure” said one student. 
 
Josette Charbit Schwartz has taught at the Lycée Français, the Branson School, and French American International.
