Lecture 

The attainment of wholeness requires one to stake one’s whole being.  Nothing less will do. 
- C.G. Jung

How has the concept of wholeness been perceived throughout the centuries?  How did Jung answer the longing for wholeness?  How do we answer?  With excerpts from Jung’s The Red Book: Liber Novus and Memories, Dreams, Reflections, along with excerpts from Thomas Merton, Annie Dillard, and Orhan Pamuk, we will consider different ways to wholeness, from journaling and active imagination to the quiet practice of Zen.  In bringing the pieces together – within ourselves and within the world around us ­– we will uncover our essential oneness. 

Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Geneva, Switzerland, has published three memoirs: Looking for Gold, Circling to the Center, Footsteps-A European Album, and the highly appreciated writing book,  One Year to a Writing Life, plus two new titles published in 2015: Side by Side: Writing Your Love Story and Footsteps:  In Love with a Frenchman.  Her most recent book, Writing Toward Wholeness, Lessons Inspired by C.G.Jung was published March 1 by Chiron Publications. She has been teaching writing workshops for close to twenty years at C.G. Jung Centers, at the International Women’s Writing Guild, and at writers’ centers and conferences in the States and in Europe where she directs the Geneva Writers’ Group, an association of 250 English-language writers.

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.
