ABOUT US ___________________________________________
The Jung Society of Washington brings
the general public and professional community the insights and tools of
analytic psychology and related disciplines. Through programs, classes,
visiting speakers, partnerships with like organizations, and electronic
media, the Jung Society creates
a platform for communal discussion regarding the personal and cultural
issues that confront us. The tools these programs provide assist
individuals, relationships, and societies in a dialogue that enhances
understanding the unconscious dynamics that course through personal
lives, cultural problems, and historic patterns.
OUR MISSION The Jung Society of Washington, dedicated to the experience of the Self, 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 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. Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
