Twelve students of Jung will gather on five Thursday evenings in May. In the course of the five classes, each will be invited to share a meaningful dream. A safe and protected space will be established. Jung called such a space the temenos. The supportive power of the group will then be called into action. As the dreamer reads her dream the others listen intently, especially focusing on images presented in the dream or images that the dream evokes in the listeners. Then the dreamer reads the dream again. At this time the whole group is asked to make a quick sketch of the part of the dream that they find the most compelling. Afterwards, the drawings are shared. This experience has the potential of deepening the dream for the dreamer. They may see things in the dream they hadn’t noticed before. And the whole group benefits from the experience of listening intently, of developing their understanding of the symbolic attitude of the psyche. They are often opened to the experience of the numinous. Participants have said that it can be ‘transformational.’

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.
