Course

Using Dreams, we will explore the Jungian concepts of complexes, archetypes, and psychic energy.  Readings include Jung, CW 8, pp. 92-106 “A Review of the Complex Theory"; Jung, CW 9.1, pp. 3-41 “Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious"; and Jung, CW 8, pp. 3-66 “Psychic Energy.”

"Of all of Jung's contributions to understanding the nature and processes of the human soul, perhaps the idea of "complexes" is the most practical in understanding daily life.   Complexes are charged clusters of our history--some supportive, some destructive--which usurp ego consciousness and make choices for us.   Getting some idea how we are often driven by these "splinter personalities" is the first step in a more consciously conducted life."
- James Hollis

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.
