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 Jung Society provides continuing education for the human spirit. We help people find deeper meaning in everyday life. Our programs offer a wide variety of topics, taught by Jungian experts and other professionals in the disciplines of psychology, education, the humanities, and the arts. We explore educational themes from personal growth and insights to responses to love, loss, life passages, dreams, fairy-tales, the soul, psychological types, and more.

This workshop will draw upon the combined skills of our mother-daughter co-leaders. Sandy Geller is a Jungian Analyst, IAAP Certified and an Art Therapist, and Melissa Harrison is an Alexander Technique Teacher AMSAT, a Certified Pilates Instructor and a Tai Chi Instructor focusing on meditation, injury prevention, balance and happiness.
The goal will be to explore how the experience of art making can be deepened by approaching it from a quiet, peaceful place. The sound of Crystal Singing Bowls and chimes will create a meditative environment of peace and relaxation within which we will enter into collaging with brilliantly colored tissue paper placed intuitively. The artist participants will learn how to make the collage, how to gaze at the patterns created and then how to use Jungian Active Imagination in community to access the messages that psyche brings forth. Participants will leave with their collages and a sense of lighthearted joy.
We will ask ourselves in the Jungian way, “What is this about?” You will have an experience of Jung.

“Hauntings” is a metaphor for the fact that we all live in historically generated “stories,” some conscious, some not.
These stories have the power to replicate our past and build on it, or occasion the same old, same old dead ends. This course will explore the various ways in which the excavation of the past can free the present, and redefine our future.
