Course

We will revisit the first stories we remember hearing. Where did we hear them? Were they read to us or did we read them ourselves? What were they about?

In this class for 10-12 people we will use pastels, tissue paper collage, clay and journaling to explore the meaning of story. How does exposure to early stories influence our development?  Where do they show up later in life, sometimes as life scripts or personal myths and fairytales?

This workshop will be playful, creative and personally informative. Participants will come to see how their unique versions of even classic stories

become sign posts on their journey of individuation. In the process we will witness each other and be witnessed in a safe space. The place Jung described as the temenos.

Join me, Sandy Geller, with your stories in the month of May 2018.

Sondra Geller, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, is a Jungian Analyst, Board Certified Registered Art Therapist, and Licensed Professional Counselor.  She has a private practice in Washington, D.C., where she sees clients individually and in groups. Her work reflects a synthesis of the principals of both Jungian Analytic Psychology and Art Therapy.  Sandy also teaches and presents experiential workshops focusing on the dynamics of making art in the presence of the analyst.  What happens in the silent space between client/artist and Jungian analyst/observer, and how does this dynamic facilitate the journey of individuation? 

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.
