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.

In this four-week course on embodied imagery, we will explore our already highly developed movement language and engage, through that lens, with chosen figures and landscapes from fairytales and dreams that enchant and haunt us. We will invite our dream animals that coil and slither, stalk and pounce, to teach us their movement language. The wizards and witches in fairytales will share with us their ability to cast spells, and remind us why we might find that skillset appealing.
How can the ancient esoteric knowledge of Sacred Geometry be put to use in the healing of Earth, the damage wrought by suburban sprawl, and the creation of more beautiful and lovable places through which we can move with awareness and ease? We interact with the built environment intimately and daily, but rarely if ever think in terms of sacred space beyond church or temple. Yet the crises we face today, of climate change, environmental destruction, and dramatic urbanization, almost demand that we think of entire cities and regions as sacred space. As Jung said, “The process of individuation is impossible without relation to one’s environment.” How can we develop such a new attitude toward place?
