Julie Bondanza

For this five-week course, we will read in order: Silence by Shusaku Endo (the movie is also worth seeing), Night, by Elie Weisel, and a short reading, Yosi Rakover Talks to God by Zvi Kolitz. Also, if you haven't read it, Job, translated by Steven Mitchell is not necessary, but informs the discussion. The Visionist, by Rachel Urquhart, Their Eyes Were Watching God by Nora Zeale Hurston and perhaps 1984 by George Orwell (please check in later on this).

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.
