FILM NIGHT: CARING FOR THE SOUL; An Introduction to Jungian Psychotherapy for Patients and Therapists, part 1, with Murray Stein


Jungian psychotherapy is a secular method of dealing with emotional and mental problems facing modern individuals, but it also includes a specifically spiritual perspective in the work and welcomes the emergence of numinous experience into the consulting room as part of the individuation process. The experience of the numinous is seen as an important feature of attending to the needs of the soul and is indeed a key instigator of healing and the generation of a meaningful sense of identity.  Hence the use of the term 'soul' in this seminar.

In this DVD presentation, Dr. Murray Stein elucidates the fundamental features of Jungian psychotherapy. He looks at the heart of Jungian psychotherapy and its basic perspectives on the needs of the soul, the question of illness and health, and the quest for meaning and identity in a rapidly changing multicultural world. He includes one of the best historical reviews of how Jungian Psychology came into being and then spread across the globe. He explores Jung's personal life, the first generation of Jungian analysts and the subsequent training institutions that developed.


Murray Stein, Ph.D., is a training analyst and president of the International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland (ISAP Zurich). He is the author of The Principle of Individuation and many other books and articles in the field of Jungian Psychoanalysis. He is a founding member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and Chicago Society of Jungian Analysts.  From 2001 to 2004 he was president of the International Association for Analytical Psychology. He is a highlysought after international lecturer and presently makes his home in Switzerland.

OUR MISSION

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.
