OUR MISSION

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. 

      READ ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS



      OF SPECIAL INTEREST

      THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT IN THE RED BOOK, The Alchemy of Journaling, a lecture by Susan Tiberghien

      In this lecture, we will consider The Red Book as Jung’s journey through darkness to light, his journey of individuation. Through our own journaling we can make the same journey. We will look at the practice of journaling as active imagination, with examples from Jung’s journals and from the journals of Etty Hillesum and Thomas Merton.
