Roseanne Shepler

In Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Jung tells of recurring dreams with the same theme. He finds himself in an added wing of his house that was unfamiliar to him but that had been there all along. He came to realize that this unknown wing was an aspect of his own personality - of himself. This unconscious piece revealed itself as an interest for the study of medieval alchemy. The year was 1926, and Carl Jung spent the next 30+ years unraveling the mysteries of alchemy and how alchemy is a symbolic representation of the individuation process.

In this six-week course, we will read in Vol. 12 of the Collected Works Part III: "Religions Ideas in Alchemy". Included in this reading are the Basic Concepts of Alchemy, The Psychic Nature of the Alchemical Work, The Work, The Prima Materia, The Lapis-Christ Parallel, and the Alchemical Symbolism in the History of Religion. Please join!

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.

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.
