Course

Synchronicity holds both magic and mystery when it is encountered.  It seems puzzling and unexplainable.  Perhaps we could say that synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence that connects something going on outside us with something happening inside us.  Jung describes synchronicity not as cause and effect but as consisting of an unconscious image that comes into consciousness and an objective situation coinciding with this content and creating emotion and affect. The purpose of this five-week course is to allow opportunities to be self-reflective and open to the possibility of synchronicity, which brings consciousness and meaning to our lives with the opportunity for change.  We will be reading and working with David Richo’s book, The Power of Coincidence: How Life Shows Us What We Need to Know.

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.
