The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity. We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation". With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events. We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

THE FORM OF THINGS UNKNOWN: What You Know From What You Make, a lecture and workshop by Lorne Buchman"Dr. Lorne Buchman is one of the foremost researchers into the mystery of human creativity. As President of ArtCenter College of Design in L.A., he swims in creative waters, and is a most articulate, persuasive public presenter.”

Alexander Calder once said, “I think best in wire”. In the act of manipulating the material of his creative practice, Calder is thinking. Indeed, the sculptor is suggesting an understanding of creativity distinct from popular assumptions about manifesting preconceived vision.
