The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to the experience of the Self and 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.
OF SPECIAL INTEREST
OUT OF A MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE
Using Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement as a case study, this lecture explores the opposite but intertwined affects of hope and despair, and their relationship to our ability to take action in times of crisis. King’s complicated history with hope and despair is worth mining for its inspiration and wisdom today, as we too are living in a time of cultural disintegration and collective despair. The lecture will end by offering the symbol of the mandorla as a way to hold the tension of these opposite affects and still take action on behalf of King’s beloved community.
