SOMETHING NEW AT THE JUNG SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON:
FIVE FRIDAY MORNING CLASSES!
The classes will demonstrate fundamental ways for using the expressive arts within the context of Jungian studies, especially for analysis and therapy. Participants will have an opportunity to experience a scribble drawing, a clay scribble, dream drawing, self expression through gesture and the use of stories to enter into dialogue with the unconscious and become familiar with what Jung called the symbolic attitude of the psyche.
Students of Jung often report that the art making process enables them to go deeper into the journey of self-discovery than just words alone. Even dream work can be enriched with simple drawings or sculptures.
Simple, playful drawings can reveal aspects of one’s self that might otherwise remain hidden. Recovering lost parts of self can be experienced as transformational.
Whether you are engaged in your own analysis or are an interested student of Jung eager to deepen your relationship with psyche, taking part in an experiential class promises to be a rewarding experience of Jung.
