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.
Dear Friends:We have deepest sympathy for, and support of, those in our community who are suffering from the impact of the government shutdown. We believe that our classes and programs help people find their own inner moorings when the certainties of the outer world have failed them. To show our support, we will provide, as long as the shutdown lasts, any government worker or immediate family member, free admission for any of our lectures or courses. Contact us HERE.
With very best regards,
OF SPECIAL INTEREST
RUSSIA'S "SNOW MAIDEN" TALE, a presentation by Philippa RappoportSnegurochka, or the Snow Maiden, was first published in a collection of folktales in the late 19th century. It inspired a symphony and a ballet, and continues to be one of the most popular folktales in Russia today. A visit from Snegurochka and her grandfather, Ded Moroz, is an established and cherished component of contemporary New Year celebrations.
This presentation will examine the connection between the folktale and ritual celebrations, and will explore more broadly notions of the sacred in narrative and ritual celebration.

Analytic psychology helps us understand our humanity, grow and expand our creativity. We invite you to consider supporting the Jung Society of Washington with a donation at year’s end, a donation which materially helps generate these many programs and courses for you. We are seeking to expand our library, provide more scholarships, and bring even more depth perspectives from the analytic world to add to the richness which our area provides. Our society is composed of people like you: curious, sometimes hurting, imaginative, and always seeking to grow in awareness. We invite you to grow, and to help us help each other attend the unfinished business which life daily brings to our door.
