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.

OF SPECIAL INTEREST
IN DEFENSE OF ANGER: Embracing Dark Aspects of Survival and Transformation: A Workshop by the Jung Scholar of Distinction, John HillAnger is aroused by a perceived threat to self or a significant other. We encounter anger between couples, between parents and children, between siblings, neighbors, in the workplace, or in road rage. The darker side of anger terrorizes the other, humiliates the other, make the other submissive. But anger is part of our evolutionary make-up, and belongs to our survival kit.
