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.

The Jungian Analysts of Washington Association (JAWA) Clinical Perspectives Seminar Series presents:
The Mythological Unconscious: Symbolic Formation in Dreams and Art
A Seminar with James Hollis, PhD,
Friday, January 13, 2017, 10 a.m.- 1 p.m.
This program will present, through an examination of one dream and the art work of two schizophrenic patients, the symbolic function at work in the psyche. Viewing psychological process as meaning-seeking, meaning-creating teleology, Dr. Hollis demonstrates how psychopathology is de-pathologized when viewed through a symbolic lens.
This clinical seminar is open to clinicians, advanced students of analytical psychology, and anyone interested in Jungian approaches to psychotherapy. The topic will be examined through lecture and group discussion.
PRESENTER: Dr.Hollis is the author of fourteen books translated into seventeen languages. Among them are: Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life, and most recently, Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives.
