Jung Memorial Lecture

Guy Corneau 

In this lecture, I will talk about my passage through the ordeal of cancer. In the first half of the lecture, I will address the meaning of illness.  In the second half, I will narrate my experience through its different phases.  In the context of my ex-partner dying of cancer in May 2009, I will also talk about accompanying somebody in the process of dying.  It will be a rendezvous with humor, depth of thought, and emotion.

Guy Corneau is the best-selling author of several books on the subject of personal development.  He travels regularly to Europe where he gives lectures and workshops.  Guy graduated from the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich in 1981 and had a private practice for years in Montreal before embarking on his international speaking career.  A French Canadian television “star” with several shows to his credit, Guy is also a social innovator who founded two self-help networks – one for men, another for women.  He created a group named Productions Couer.com, which brought together artists and therapists.  Two of his books have found a way to the American market: Absent Fathers, Lost Sons and Lessons in Love.


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.
