    Course

    It is said that history repeats itself. I would restate the idea that is at the core of this sentiment. It is not that history repeats, but rather, it is the patterns enacted in historical events that repeat.

    Euripides (480 BCE—406 BCE), along with Aeschylus and Sophocles, was a preeminent Athenian tragedian, and the youngest of the three great dramatists. Many of his plays tell of the murder or sacrifice of royal children, either as part of the immediate drama, or as backstory. They include Medea, Children of Heracles, Hippolytus, Andromache, Hecube, Thyestes, The Trojan Woman, Erichtheus, Antigone, The Bacchae, and our play, Iphigeneia at Aulis. These killings are often, though not exclusively, the killing of girls and young women. What might account for the propensity of the deaths of so many royal children, especially princesses, and in particular, the sacrificial murder of the princess Iphigeneia? What, from Euripides’ view of the world and in his poetic mind, might be being murdered by Athens at the time he lived and wrote? Given that patterns repeat in history, how might his powerful metaphor be a mirror held up as a harbinger for us, and our historical time? Let’s explore.

    July 29: Remembering that theater was for ancient Greeks a religious ritual, tonight we shall move through Iphigeneia at Aulis, imagining what Athenians experienced while being engrossed in the drama. We will ask these perennial questions. What’s the story about? Who are these people? Where and when the play it set? What is the background that undergirds this tragic family drama? What is the poet’s underlying spiritual message?

    August 5: Tonight we will step back from the play, and ask questions to help us understand the story, the backstory, and “my” story—what happens in, and for, you, as you take the story in? We will look at each of the key characters for their stories—Klytemnestra, Agamemnon, Iphigeneia, and the goddess Artemis. If there is time, we will also touch on the supporting characters, Odysseus and Achilles.

    August 12: As an artist, Euripides fulfilled the idea Shakespeare put forth in Hamlet, that art holds a mirror up to nature, and particularly to human nature. There is no doubt that Euripides wrote this particular drama at this particular time to show his beloved Athens, and its faltering leadership, where they were heading both morally and spiritually. Tonight we will look at Euripides in his historical time, as a preeminent Athenian tragedian and citizen.

    Finally, looking at all we have covered, we shall see if we can draw some conclusions about how and why Iphigeneia at Aulis, and Euripides’ story, speak to us today. For, to my way of thinking, nearly 2,500 years after this play was performed in Athens, the Master Poet continues to holds the mirror up for us today.

    Please read Iphigeneia at Aulis before we meet. I am using Euripides. Iphigeneia at Aulis, translated by W. S. Merwin and George E. Dimock, Jr. Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 1978. For those who want to go more deeply into the life and works of Euripides, I recommend Gilbert Murray’s excellent book, Euripides and His Age. London: William and Norgate, 1913. It is available in print and online at www.guttenberg.ca.

    There is also an excellent film version that is available on DVD with subtitles, adapted and directed by Michael Cacoyannis, 1977. The action is, of course, is configured for cinema.

    I hope to see you on July 29 for Iphigeneia at Aulis: Euripides, His Art, and Our Age.

    An Evening With

    “All are clear, I alone am clouded” Lao Tzu

    “Only after I had familiarized myself with alchemy did I realize that the unconscious is a process, and the psyche is transformed by the relationship of the ego to the contents of the unconscious.” C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

    In tonight’s program we will explore the alchemical processes that link the nourishing energetic field of ‘Self Love’ with the subtle energy system of Tantric anatomy. When this infusion of Self Love is activated with intentional awareness it becomes embodied within our human anatomy and supports the biological, subtle, and psychological aspects of the immune function. This in turn helps free us from being enslaved by reactivity coming from our pain identity that is triggered by shadow projections onto inner and outer, good and bad objects.

    Accessing the power of this sacred anatomy with this infusion of awareness can open us up to a deepening experience of mystery, scintillating with conscious thought transference and synchronicity. Through these empowerments we can develop a grounded ego and strengthen self-esteem and physical health. Within the purifying alchemy of this interactive field we can meet ourselves in the outer world through the constellation of Tantric relationships with others that link our evolving consciousness meaningfully to the collective and the cosmos.

    In Alchemy, in order to attain the highest degree of conjunction, the prima materia —what Jung calls “the unknown substance that carries the projection of the autonomous psychic content”— must be extracted from the sacred bath. The optimal extraction comes when we bathe with a tincture of conscious Self Love. More often we are left with the predicament of turning self-hatred and shadow projections into the tincture by an inoculation of awareness that these inner and outer projections ultimately constitute an autoimmune self-attack. Then this autoimmune energy can be transmuted to dissolve our allergic reactions to ourselves. As Jung points out: “the symptomatology of an illness is at the same time a natural attempt at healing.”

    In Tantra, visualizing the currents of energy running through the channels of the sacred anatomy refines consciousness, purifying our psychic projections. As we develop more “subtle muscle” through practice, these energies, magnetized with intentional awareness, are embodied in the unifying mandala of the Self. In both Tantra and Alchemy, pursuing non-duality promotes conscious individuation. As the pain identity dissolves into infinite fearlessness, we reclaim the primordial state of complete immunity through Self Love.  

    Please note: after the program ends at 9:00 PM there will be an extended question and answer discussion for those who would like to participate in this option.

    Course

    Five Alternate Thursdays

    The purpose of this course is to provide a temenos, a place separate from the tumultuous, where we can gain some insight and perspective into the relationship between psyche and polis, from Jung's psychology of the political. This is important work and an important part of what Jung called individuation. According to the great Marie Louise von Franz, Jung was passionate about "les droits de l'homme, the security of man's basic rights and the freedom of the individual, which are guaranteed not only by a 'just' state, but far more by the maturity, wisdom, and consciousness of all the members of a community" (Forward in Jung and Politics).

    In order to facilitate this exploration, we shall look at Jungian analyst, Volodymyr Odajnyk's Jung and Politics: The Political and Social Ideas of C. G. Jung, which gives a survey of Jung's attitude toward political questions, spread out, as they are, through his many writings. In her Forward commending the book, von Franz pointed out that Jung looked at these questions with the eye "of a trained depth psychologist, and he was more interested in looking for what was going on below the surface of everyday political life than in its superficial aspects" (von Franz, in Jung and Politics). We shall also look at some of Jung's shorter writings on these matters. Film and image will be brought in to round things out.

    Among the questions we shall look at will be the following: How does the inescapable relationship between psyche and polis function in the human journey towards healing and wholeness (individuation)? In the polarizations which characterize the political, what could be the meanings of one of Jung's descriptions of individuation, coincidentia oppositorum, the coincidence of opposites? Furthermore, is there an archetype of justice, of which we have a memory, and which we humans try at times to realize, however asymptotically, in our social realities?

    Readings: 
    • Volodymyr Odajnyk, Jung and Politics: The Political and Social Ideas of C. G. Jung, forward by Marie-Louise von Franz (1976 and reissued by Authors Choice Press in 2007).
    • C. G. Jung, The Undiscovered Self, new forward by Sonu Shamdasani (Princeton and Oxford: Princeton University Press, 2011). This is also in Civilization in Transition, CW 10.

    Recommended readings: 
    C. G. Jung, "After the Catastrophe," Civilization in Transition, CW 10.
    C. G. Jung, "The Fight with the Shadow," Civilization in Transition, CW 10.
    C. G. Jung, "Epilogue to Essays on Contemporary Events," Civilization in Transition, CW 10.

    Mark Napack, M.A., S.T.L., M.S., studied archetypal patterns in comparative literature at Columbia University, after which he applied Jungian theory to the redemption motif in medieval theology for his thesis at Fordham University.  He further studied Jung, psychology, and the history of religion at Loyola and Catholic Universities. A long-time graduate and college instructor, Mark has presented at international conferences and his work has appeared in scholarly journals and books in English and French. Mark Napack, LCPC, is also a Jungian-informed psychotherapist in North Bethesda, MD.

    Lecture

    The psychic sonar of dreams detects what is under the surface of consciousness, providing information that helps us navigate rough personal and collective waters. Dreams are nightly soundings from the deep. They tell us about obstacles and help us chart a better course through the psychic seas. Using submitted dreams we will explore the objective psyche and listen for its wise guidance through difficult times. 

    Attendees are invited to share dreams that spoke to a collective crisis, offered guidance, or provided comfort during a challenging time at this link. Dreamers’ identities will remain confidential.

    Workshop

    Jung’s collaborator, Marie Louise von Franz, gave a brief but important talk in her final lecture that masterfully summarized Jung’s contributions to understanding the human experience. In C.G. Jung’s Rehabilitation of the Feeling Function in Our Civilization, she traces Jung’s critique of rationalism in modern culture and describes how this one sidedness has come at the expense of empathy and differentiated relatedness. She credits Jung with the resurrection of the feeling function and the principle of Eros. The trio from This Jungian Life will unpack the ideas in this essay in their usual accessible, conversational style. 

    Attendees may submit dreams for discussion on the podcast at this link. Dreams will be presented confidentially. You can submit your dream here

    June Singer, Boundaries of the Soul: The Practice of Jung’s Psychology (1994 edition)

    Singer’s book is an excellent introduction to Jungian psychology and contains valuable information for psychotherapists with a Jungian perspective.

    For this class, however, our focus will be on how we personally react to Jungian psychology, both theory and method. I hope that we all will learn something new about our own psyches. We will also discuss
    our ethical responsibilities to ourselves and to the world, particularly during this extraordinary time.

    For the first class, please familiarize yourself with the Preface, Introduction, and Part One (1994 edition). I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the material.

    Lecture

    While working to find empirical evidence of the psyche’s religious function, Jung studied a variety of subjects, including orthodox and nonorthodox Hindu philosophy. In the Indian traditions Jung found comparable evidence to what he termed individuation, the central process of human development and the spiritual development of the personality. Consequently, he found Eastern philosophy and psychology, including Patañjali’s Classical Yoga, to be of tremendous value to his psychological research.

    In his 1936 paper Yoga and the West, Jung wrote “When the doing of the individual is at the same time a cosmic happening, the elation of the body (innervation) becomes one with the elation of the spirit (the universal idea), and from this there arises a living whole which no technique, however scientific, can hope to produce. Yoga practice is unthinkable, and would also be ineffectual, without the ideas on which it is based. It works the physical and the spiritual into one another in an extraordinarily complete way.”

    As EuroAmerican culture continues to work on unifying the mind, body and spirit into an integrative and holistic model, the Jung Yoga dialogue remains highly informative. This workshop examines areas of difference and similarity between Jung and Yoga and explores the contemporary relevance of Classical Yoga psychology to Jungian theory and practice.

    Dr. Leanne Whitney is an independent scholar and Transformational Coach who holds a a Doctoral Degree in depth psychology and specializes in the intersection of Western psychology and Yoga. She is the author of Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali (2018) and has published in the International Journal of Jungian Studies and Psychological Perspectives: A Quarterly Journal of Jungian Thought.

    Workshop

    Within the Jungian tradition, coming to terms with the feeling-value of psychic contents, in addition to their intellectual value, is an indispensable prerequisite for wholeness. The value of our emotional and affective life is woven throughout Jung’s depth psychology. Jung emphasized that the purely intellectual attitude must be abandoned.

    Revisioning and understanding our intellectual life and heart center are two strong bonds between Jungian-oriented depth psychology and Patañjali’s Classical Yoga.

    In Patañjali’s world, the heart is a way to gain access to the nature of the mind. In sūtra 3.34 he stated, by concentration, meditation and absorption in the heart, knowledge of the mind is attained. In the orthodox Indian tradition, the heart is considered to be the seat of intelligence, with both Self and mind centered there.

    In this workshop,

    • We will focus on centering in the heart and we will explore why continuing to do shadow work and to awaken feelings of interdependence, regulation and balance are the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and to our collective.

    • Through the lens of cutting-edge neuroscience, we will explore why regulating our nervous system is pivotal to obtaining the knowledge of the heart.

    • We will look into some steps we can take to open our hearts and come into the power of embodied authenticity and self-sovereignty.

    Experiential Exercises include: Breathwork, Meditation, Journal Prompts

    Day With Series

    Gratitude to the Unknown Instructors

    What they undertook to do

    They brought to pass;

    All things hang like a drop of dew

    Upon a blade of grass.

    — W.B. Yeats


    (Re)discover agency and resonance in these pandemic times by exploring a rhythmic ride with the ancient Celtic calendar. Over the course of the year – a 12 month period – set aside weekends for the 4 seasonal punctuation marks and celebrations of the mythic Gaelic year – Samhain (new year), Imbolc (early spring), Beltane (early summer) and Lughnasa (hot.hot.hot.) Be part of a virtual community, co-led by two psychotherapists committed to the (heart)work at hand, replete with thoughtful readings, in anticipation of shared reflections - bolstered by earth and nature. We explore inner landscapes affixed to a scaffolding of past days and times.

    So many of us have been asked to ‘shelter in place.’ What if we insisted – risked? - that for ourselves? In our sheltering, what if we allow ourselves to hunker down as the days grow shorter, demand that our psychological larders sustain us as the darkness deepens, recognize the strengths and deficits as the darkness deepens? The Celtic new year is Samhain; Halloween it isn’t.

    Fair expectations for prospective students of this venture is support in the trying-on of a new calendar, fortified by stories of those who have lived them. There will be some readings, recitations, images as well as conversations. Once upon a time, antiquity meets Zoom. Experience, perhaps, a collective creep into a more sustainable something. If you can riff on the difference between a three and four leaf clover, you’ve passed any and all admissions requirements. Recognizing ‘shelter from the storm’ vs. ‘gimme shelter’ works, too. Have a willingness to linger in this or that cul-de-sac of story.

    ~~~

    Jungian Analyst Kathryn Cook-Deegan, Washington, DC, and Psychotherapist/Supervisor/Trainer Elaine King, Galway, Ireland, will co-lead this.

    We’ll start with the Celtic new year – Samhain – on Saturday, 31 October 2020 and Sunday, 1 November 2020.

    The fields have been harvested. It’s a time for resting and community and music, ancestors and masks. We prepare for the darkness soon to come upon the land. (There’s a fire burning.) The story of Cesair and Fintan mac Bóchra will serve as a guide.

    And then - Imbolc, Brigid’s Day, Saturday, 30 January 2021 + Sunday, 31 January 2021

    Beltane, Saturday, 1 May 2021 + Sunday, 2 May 2021

    Lughnasa, Saturday, 31 July 2021 + Sunday, 1 August 2021

    A lunch break is included from 12-1pm

    ~~

    Drawn by story and ritual, Elaine and Kathryn met initially in Sintra, Portugal while attending a fairy tale workshop. Then it was to Clare Island – off Ireland’s west coast – and The Bard Mythologies for a number of summers. And now this virtual adventure.

    Kathryn Cook-Deegan is a Zurich-trained Jungian Analyst and licensed psychoanalyst in private practice in Washington, DC. She has advanced degrees in Classics and Public Administration and is a professional member of the Yoga Alliance. She’s the past co-chair of the Jungian International Training – Zurich foundation, and past president of the Consortium for Psychoanalytic Research, Inc. in Washington. www.cookdeegan.com Her favorite Irish sentence,’ Tá sé tirim buíochas le Dia.’, translates to It’s-dry-out-thanks-be-to-God.

    Elaine King originally trained as a teacher of Catechetics and English.  She taught at high school level before working for a number of years as a community arts facilitator. Having trained as a body psychotherapist in the mid '90's she works as a psychotherapist, supervisor, and psychotherapy trainer.  She’s a member of the governing body of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP). Enjoying a regular mindfulness practice, she also facilitates mindfulness courses.   Living on the West Coast of Ireland she enjoys its music, language and rowing on the river Corrib in Galway City.

    Course

    Four Tuesdays

    As individuals, we often find ourselves in in-between times, somewhere between a world we knew, and a world that has not yet emerged.  These times are hours of crisis, disorientation, loss, and enormous anxiety.   Similarly cultures, eras, civilizations go through in-between times.   Ours is such a moment in history.    How can we recover our bearings, sustain dignity and integrity when things fall apart?   What abides amid such discontinuity?   Together we will reflect on what we may do to recover a sense of personal autonomy when our roadmap whirls from our grasp and leaves us confounded.

    Required Text: Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times by James Hollis

    James Hollis, Ph. D. is a Jungian Analyst, and author of Living an Examined Life, Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times, and other books.

Jungian Studies Reading Seminar - Collected Works of Carl G. Jung 
2019 - 2020 Program is full. You can join the waitlist for the next academic year. 

The Jung Society of Washington Jungian Studies Reading Seminar includes eight monthly seminars offered per year to read and discuss predominantly classical Jung and other figures who link directly to the classical Jungian corpus.

While some of the prior members will be continuing, the Jung Society is opening up participation to new members in the fall of 2019. The JSRS is taught by regional Jungian analysts. Participation is open to anyone, regardless of background, who wishes to learn the theory and practice of depth psychology from some of its great teachers.

The seminar meets on the second Saturday, from 9 to 4:30 p.m., during the months of September through December and February through May. The participant is obliged only to read the texts and come prepared for discussion conducted by the analyst. The cost of the seminar is $800 per semester, and $1600 for the entire year. At the end of the two year cycle, a certificate of completion will be conferred. A limited number of scholarships are also available.

To apply email natalia@jung.org, or mail to the Jung Society, 5200 Cathedral, Ave., N. W. Washington, D. C. 20016.

This year the program is graciously underwritten in part by the Prometheus Foundation. Thank you!
