a container for the psyche in an uncertain world

Log in


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. 

Our programs are being offered online, via the Zoom platform, until further notice due to COVID-19.

UNDERSTANDING SELF LOVE: Optimizing the Immune Function through Shadow Work and Tantric Practices, An Evening With Tim Lyons

Via Zoom

“A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them. They then dwell in the house next door, and at any moment a flame may dart out and set fire to his own house.” Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections 

“The practitioner of the Highest Yoga Tantra is one who can channel into the path of spiritual evolution energies as intense as those of sexual union itself.” Lama Yeshe, The Bliss of Inner Fire

Self Love depends upon our becoming conscious of projections and owning them. In tonight’s presentation we will explore how the alchemy of shadow work and Tantric inner fire practices can produce awareness that inoculates the immune function of the psyche, subtle body, and body from unconscious projection and self-attack. These alchemical processes can guide us on the hero’s journey of intentional individuation and liberation that empowers us to transform exhaustion from the pain of traumatic conflicts and karma into the vital, creative energy of unconditional Self Love.

JUNG AND ASTROLOGY: How the Ancient Symbolism of Astrology Helped Inform C.G. Jung’s Most Important Ideas, An Evening With Janet Kane

Via Zoom

“Astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity – C. G. Jung

In C. G. Jung’s Collected Works, as well as his other writing, one can see many references to astrological symbols and hermetic concepts, which can be seen as sources for his ideas. Some of these ideas include the archetypes, his theory of psychological types, the persona, individuation, and synchronicity. Liz Greene, a modern professional astrologer and Jungian analyst believes that the future of psychology lay in rebuilding the lost connection between modern man, these ancient esoteric ideas and the cosmos.
