Lecture

"Envy and jealousy are awesome and subtle forces in human nature and favorite allies of our individual and collective shadows."
- Sir Laurence van set Post, Epilogue from, The Life and Work of C.G. Jung

In his Forward to The I Ching, Jung wrote, "Since a share in something great always arouses envy, the chorus of the envious is part of the picture. "

Through the lens of analytic psychology, this lecture and workshop explores the role that envy and jealousy play in human relationships. We will look at their archetypal nature and the teleology of the symptoms. We will try to understand what makes us vulnerable to these emotions and ultimately, how they can lead to either destruction or transformation. Mythology, fairy tales and literature as well as dreams and examples from personal life will amplify the role that these difficult emotions play in the individuation process.

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, Pittsburg, 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.

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.
