Workshop
Starts at 11AM, February 9

Join us for three hours of immersion in a playful, creative, intuitive, inner space where we will explore and discover the surprising and mysterious possibilities of learning to work with brilliantly colored tissue that we will tear into random shapes then glue down--guided only by a capricious enjoyment of color, shape and artful pleasure.

Each collage, has the potential to reveal aspects of the self culled from our inner landscapes. We will learn how to look deeply into the accidental placement of colors where we may find images that speak of the numinous, of mystery.

We will work with Jung’s process of active imagination and learn to dialogue with the inner images. We will discover both the uniqueness of our collages, as well as that area where there is a presence of the collective. It will be an experience of working alone quietly and then witnessing and sharing in small groups. Tissue paper collage can be a healing experience of self-discovery and self-acknowledgement. Some have called it transformational.

Come and see for yourself.

Date in case of snow  - February 9

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.
