a container for the psyche in an uncertain world

Log in


The Jung Society  of Washington is dedicated to the experience of the Self and serves the "still small voice" of human longing (sometimes called "holy longing") that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of silence, contemplation, creativity, and imagination. Our programs support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the "heroic struggle" for personality integration and wholeness that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation." We offer lectures, courses, workshops, evenings with distinguished analysts, that help guide our unique inner venture.

    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.

      The ways to wholeness with Susan Tiberghien

      How has the concept of wholeness been perceived throughout the centuries?  With excerpts from Jung’s The Red Book: Liber Novus and Memories, Dreams, Reflections, along with excerpts from Thomas Merton, Annie Dillard, and Orhan Pamuk, we will consider different ways to wholeness, from journaling and active imagination to the quiet practice of Zen.  In bringing the pieces together – within ourselves and within the world around us ­– we will uncover our essential oneness.

      The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
