The Jung Society  of Washington, dedicated to the experience of the Self, serves the "still small voice" of human longing (sometimes called "holy longing") that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of silence, contemplation, creativity, and imagination. Our programs support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the "heroic struggle" for personality integration and wholeness that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation." We offer lectures, courses, workshops, evenings with distinguished analysts, that help guide our unique inner venture. Read about our Programs here.

"To Live Again!"


**We want to welcome more members into our community! If you have a friend who has never been to an event at the Jung Society, please email us at and we will give you a code to register them free for the lecture!**

In the lecture on Friday night, Guy Corneau will talk about his passage through the ordeal of cancer. In the first half of the lecture, he will address the meaning of illness.  In the second half, Dr. Corneau will narrate his experience through its different phases.  In the context of his ex-partner dying of cancer in May 2009, Dr. Corneau will also talk about accompanying somebody in the process of dying.  It will be a rendezvous with humor, depth of thought, and emotion.

The workshop on Saturday will focus on how to transform inner states of being by using our creative imagination.  By using an inner process, we will learn to develop a dialog with the suffering parts in us and to pacify hurtful relationships. Finally, the workshop will include an approach to meditation.  It is designed both for people suffering from an illness, and for people wanting to experience the joy of being themselves

Guy Corneau is the best-selling author of several books on the subject of personal development.  He travels regularly to Europe where he gives lectures and workshops.  Guy graduated from the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich in 1981 and had a private practice for years in Montreal before embarking on his international speaking career.  A French Canadian television “star” with several shows to his credit, Guy is also a social innovator who founded two self-help networks – one for men, another for women.  He created a group named Productions, which brought together artists and therapists.  Two of his books have found a way to the American market: Absent Fathers, Lost Sons and Lessons in Love.

"The Visionary Company: The Poetry of Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley and Keats"


**Please note: each lecture is organized around a specific poet (in the order in which they are mentioned in the title) and you can register per lecture for this special course!**

From the age of revolution onward, a current of protest against stultifying powers, ideas and institutions, a hunger for intensity of feeling and subjective experience over received authority and rational systems, and a desperate effort to hold fast to nature before the age of mechanization prevailed, characterizes a movement called “romanticism.”   While this “movement” begat many forms in many nations, we will focus on only four of its progenitors in England—Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats--at the beginning of that world so recognizably becoming our own.
