But man’s task is… to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious. Neither should he persist in his unconsciousness, nor remain identical with the unconscious elements of his being, thus evading his destiny, which is to create more and more consciousness.
- Carl Jung, “Memories, Dreams, Reflections”

The mix of lectures, workshops, and library courses works beautifully for me; and the range of experiences draws 
a diverse community together around the work.

The library courses are particularly meaningful for me, and I am deeply grateful to the analysts and to April
for giving us the gift of beautifully held small spaces for reflection and sharing.
 My preference is always for experiential learning, and I am grateful that the Jung Society offers courses that challenge us
to find ourselves in the readings and to actively and creatively engage with the material.

- Anne Warren

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.
