ABOUT US

OUR MISSION 

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 social 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.


EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

LECTURES & WORKSHOPS

COURSES & A FILM NIGHT

AN EVENING WITH.... A DAY WITH... 

Lectures are the programs that serves the largest audience at the lowest price; it's a 90-minute program, including Q & A.

Workshops are generally half-day programs, each unique to the presenter, but designed for large groups, and participants are generally encouraged to bring their journals.

Courses are comprised of four to six class sessions held weekly.  Because of their size, James Hollis' are 90-minutes and held in the church sanctuary; all others are two hours and held in the Jung Society Library.

A Film Night is usually intended for small groups and held in the Jung Society Library.

An Evening With . . . is a 90-minute (usually) salon, held in the Jung Society Library, where attendance is limited to 20 or fewer.

A Day With . . .  can be a half-day or longer program, also held in the intimate space of the Jung Society Library.


The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict.

 - Carl Jung, Aion, CW 9ii


I'm always excited by the materials the Faculty of the Jung Society chooses for the programs whether it's poetry, literature, drama, philosophy, meditation, or expressive arts.

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.
