Workshop

Julie Bondanza

That I feed the hungry, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy  . . . these are undoubtedly great virtues . . . but what if I should discover that the poorest of beggars and the most impudent of offenders are all within me, and that I stand in need of my own kindness; that I myself am the enemy who must be loved?  What then?  

-C.G. Jung

While it is extremely difficult to do, it is fundamentally important that we learn to accept and forgive ourselves. Guilt and shame, both debilitating emotions, suggest that something is amiss and that further exploration is necessary.  


Following on Friday’s program on Self Betrayal, we will explore the mechanisms at work when self-forgiveness is needed and some ways of moving toward acceptance of responsibility, toward the release of guilt, shame and remorse, and ultimately to self-forgiveness.


Julie Bondanza, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and a diplomate Jungian analyst who trained at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, where she was Director of Training, a job she also held with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts. She has taught extensively in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, as well as for various Jung societies across the country. Presently she serves the board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York and continues to serve as its program chair, a post she has held for many years. Dr. Bondanza practices in Takoma Park and lives in Washington, D.C.

This program is partially underwritten by the generosity of Dr. Erminia Scarcella. Our thanks to her!

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.

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.
