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.

It has never been more important to become fully aware of ourselves and the world around us: come and explore with us as we launch the Spring Schedule

 With warm wishes for Spring, 

the Jung Society of Washington

presented, jointly by The Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies and the Jung Society of Washington,

June 22nd- June 25th 2017

We invite you to participate in a multidisciplinary gathering of scholars exploring complexity, creativity, and action in the context of Jungian and post-Jungian  concepts.  The conference will be held at the Key Bridge Marriott, Thursday evening June 22 – Sunday evening, June 25, 2017.  We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will be Joe Cambray, Ph.D.

In recent years, major advances in the development of complexity and dynamical systems theory have provided new perspectives for understanding Jung’s model of psyche.  The papers in this conference will address perspectives of complexity in systems ranging from clinical practice and social action to visual art, film, dance, and literature.  A major theme of the conference, “Myth in Our Time,” will explore complexity, creativity, and action in the context of the contemporary state of the political system.  

Details will be forthcoming through the JSSS
