Our 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.
Please note the following update for our coronavirus protocol as of March 22, 2020, from the Executive Director of the Jung Society, Jane Byerley.
"We have all read about “flattening the curve” and we are SO in favor of that. We are aware that each of our local jurisdictions are putting limits on the size of gatherings, and there is discussion of cancellation of all gatherings. We at the Jung Society want to protect all of you as much as we can. So, with a nod to ethics, a nod to legality and mostly through our own version of “caremongering”, we are cancelling programs. Here is the list, and what we are doing to date."

If we say we are refunding a program, please be patient. Our system is a little slow, and we are part time and a little slow, especially in social isolation. Our financials are not done on-line. So complications ensue. We will be as timely as we are able.
Some people have offered to donate the funds for classes. Of course, we are grateful for that. But we also understand the need for refunds and see donations as a different animal from class fees. We also know that these can be financially precarious times for some people. We will refund unless we hear from you otherwise. Email is the best and most efficient way to contact us now at firstname.lastname@example.org
Previously, as of March 12th, 2020:
We urgently need to let you know of changes in our position related to the coronavirus. On March 12th, April Barrett, President of the Board of Directors of the Jung Society made this announcement:
We wish we could be a port in this storm for you, but it is increasingly evident that, despite using apparent caution and good judgement, people can innocently put others at risk. We can't have that. We will continue to seek options that would allow us to send presentations to you. It is very difficult to facilitate deep sharing among a dozen people or more on a virtual tool, but we are discussing options with our presenters. For now, we are turning to books and reflection to feed our souls. We look forward to welcoming you back to our classes as soon as possible. We will miss you. Please be safe.
Please contact email@example.com for questions
Our 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.
COMING UP SOON...
PLEASE sign up immediately if you plan on attending a program.
The sooner you register, the easier it is for us to share Zoom links to your email in a timely manner. This process is not automated, so we generally will not allow registrations a few hours before the program starts.
