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 October Lecture in our Fall Series!
James Hollis, Ph. D.
"Living More Fully in the Shadow of Mortality"
Jung observed that “life is a short pause between two mysteries.” That fact is not in debate; what does matter, then, is how we live that short pause. And E. M. Forster observed that both the corpse and the newborn might speak of those mysteries, but neither one is talking. Given that mortality frames our brief journey, how can we live more fully in its presence without being defined by morbidity, fear, and denial?What are the attitudes and practices which enable us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation brings us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?
James Hollis, Ph. D., is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in practice in Washington, D. C. where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington. He is also author of fourteen books translated into nineteen languages.

A Four-Session Course starting on the 7th of September:
Dr. Melanie Starr Costello:
LOVE, SUFFERING, BETRAYAL: Works by Aldo Carotenuto on Passion and Individuation
What better discloses the tangled truths about individuation than the struggle for human relationship? Two works by the illustrious personality theorist and Jungian analyst, Aldo Carotenuto, will guide us in our discussion of the dynamic tensions between love, affiliation, and the search for personal authenticity. We will consider ecstatic dimensions of the love experience alongside the power of longing to unleash unspeakable features of human personality: obsession, shame, jealousy, the struggle for power, and the fragmentation of identity.
Wednesdays, 7:30- 9:30 p.m.
