Five Alternate Mondays

This series of novels explores the creative process: where ideas come from, what we are willing to do to have our creative work noticed, how the pressure from societal or familial sources affect the development and production of the product, how our personal biographies and complexes are reproduced in the work, and the creative process itself.

The novels, in order of discussion are: The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland,  Self Portrait with Boy by Rachel Lyon, My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, the Song of the Lark by Willa Cather and The Master by Colm Toibin.

Julie Bondanza, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and a diplomate Jungian analyst who trained at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, where she was Director of Training, a job she also held with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts. She has taught extensively in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, as well as for various Jung societies across the country. Presently she serves the board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York and continues to serve as its program chair, a post she has held for many years. Dr. Bondanza practices in Takoma Park and lives in Washington, D.C.
