Participant-led Open Discussion


The 2016 Presidential Election and the American Shadow


This session will be a participant-led open and interactive discussion of the 2016 election. We will attempt to answer the question: Where do we go from here? The 2016 election showcases the deepening fissures in American society. How can we as women be beacons of stability during these times? Expect a lively discussion where we turn to our memories of past elections and draw on our varied backgrounds and life experience.

With reference to the shadow, Jung wrote "if you imagine someone who is brave enough to withdraw all these projections, then you get an individual who is conscious of a considerable shadow. . . . Such a man knows that whatever is wrong in the world is in himself and if he only learns how to deal with his own shadow he has done something real for the world. He has succeeded in shouldering at least an infinitesimal part of the gigantic, unsolved social problems of our day (The Psychology of CG Jung, p. 114).


The Wisewoman group meets at 2:00 - 4:00 P.M. in the Jung Society of Washington library at the Palisades Community Church, 5200 Cathedral Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20016. Please arrive early so the session can begin promptly at 2:00. The doors open at 1:30 so participants can have an opportunity to meet & greet before the session. Please use the Hawthorne Place entrance. The Jung Society has moved an on-line registration and to Paypal, so please register and pay on line. If there are problems with registering on line, please bring $5.00 cash or check.

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.
