Course

Is there an “American” poetic voice, and if so, how might we find representative expressions of this contribution to the world?   In this four week class we will read a variety of American poets ranging from Whitman and Dickinson to Frost, William Carlos Williams, Robert Lowell, Stephen Dunn, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Kumin, and several others.  Upon registration for the course, the class member will be sent the assigned texts electronically.

James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C., Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington, and author of fourteen books.

OUR MISSION
The Jung Society of Washington brings the general public and professional community the insights and tools of analytic psychology and related disciplines. Through programs, classes, visiting speakers, partnerships with like organizations, and digital media, the Jung Society creates a platform for communal discussion regarding the personal and cultural issues that confront us. The tools these programs provide assist individuals, relationships, and societies in a dialogue that enhances understanding the unconscious dynamics that course through personal lives, cultural problems, and historic patterns.

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.
