If we say we are refunding a program, please be patient. Our system is a little slow, and we are part time and a little slow, especially in social isolation. Our financials are not done on-line. So complications ensue. We will be as timely as we are able.

Some people have offered to donate the funds for classes. Of course, we are grateful for that. But we also understand the need for refunds and see donations as a different animal from class fees.

    Course 

    Six Alternate Mondays

    March 9 | April 6, 20 | May 4, 18 | June 1

    This class is designated as a “continuation” class with the first part of the readings and discussions taking place last fall.  If you like a “read and discuss” format and are interested in engaging C. G. Jung’s material on a depth level, we welcome you to join us.


    Reading:  

    Psychology and Alchemy, CW 12; Part II “Individual Dream Symbolism in Relation to Alchemy;”  Chapter 3  “The Symbolism of the Mandala,” 

          Section II., “The Mandala in the Dreams”  

          Section III. The Vision of the World Clock,” 

          Section IV., “The  Symbols of the Self.”


    Reading for the first class:  Paragraphs 127 - 161


    After years of work on his Redbook, what then drew Jung so powerfully to his studies on alchemy?  Why is this important to students of Jungian psychology?  What do we learn of psyche, our own process, from this essential opus of Jung’s?

    The symbols of the process of individuation that appear in dreams are images of an archetypal nature that depict the centralizing process, the production of a new centre of personality.  I call this centre the “self,” which should be understood as the totality of the psyche.  The self is not only the centre, but also the whole circumference, which embraces both conscious and unconscious; it is the centre of this totality, just as the ego is the centre of consciousness (Psychology and Alchemy, CW 12, part ll, par. 44).

    In the second part of Jung’s Psychology and Alchemy, we are provided with powerful images of the dynamic workings of the unconscious via a dream series that illustrates unconscious processes at work.  The deliberate unfolding leads the dreamer toward a new center of personality, an essential process that focuses on archetypal symbols of unity that are present in initial dreams and those that come to us throughout our journey toward individuation.  Our focus in this class will be on the symbols, dream images, psychic process, and movement toward wholeness in relation to alchemy.

    The format of this class is “read and discuss.”  The text is “Individual Dream Symbolism in Relation to Alchemy” in Jung’s Psychology and Alchemy, CW 12.


    Cathryn Polonchak,  L.C.S.W., is a certified Jungian Analyst and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of West Virginia.  She has a private practice in the Shepherdstown and the Charles Town/Harpers Ferry areas of West Virginia.  Cathryn is a member of JAWA,  the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA), the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).  She was the past Director of Seminar for PAJA.  She is interested in the interface between body and mind, particularly at the psyche-soma level of trauma.

    A blurb from Julie:

    "This could be an exciting way to keep our hearts and minds alive and in connection with each other despite social distancing and isolation. Apparently on Zoom we can all see and hear each other just like we can in the library. 

    We will discuss each novel like we always do. One novel is, of course by the rule, changed. The fourth novel was about the Spanish flu, not a good idea right now. Instead we will read The Book Thief by Marcus Zustak.

    I will open with a brief lecture from Jung´s essay on ˋThe Child‘ and then on to this most delightful book, The Snow Child.

    I hope you all are excited to experiment with this new way of connecting."

    Julie has requested for this program to be held as a live Zoom session, with active video and audio participation from the audience as they desire throughout.


    Course

    Five Alternate Mondays

    March 30 | April 13, 27 | May 11, 25

    Innocence, Experience, Higher Innocence. Using William Blake’s paradigm,  and Jung’s essay on The Child (Vol 9 1) we will read five novels about the child. We will start with The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, which some of you have read before, to bring the importance of the child in an adult’s perspective. This will be followed by: A Death in the Family by James Agee, A Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers and They Came Like Swallows by William Maxwell The Book Thief by Marcus Zustak which are all from the child’s perspective, and finally Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye to look specifically at the effects of childhood trauma on adult psyches.

    Lecture

    “Let us descend from the empyrean . . . my time is short and I cannot afford to wait on the morals and judgments of the world.” --Sandor Marai, Cassanova in Bolzano

    Transgressions are expressions of an archetypal field of morality, carrying with them many traumatic emotional experiences. In response to the occurrence of moral transgression, humanity is pitted between the Procrustean bed of religious condemnation and a collective lack of understanding of unconscious dynamics; both attitudes are insufficient for an adequate understanding the full meaning of these painful, profound, and potentially transformative experiences; this is especially evident when we see that, in service to a greater consciousness, upon entering this domain of morality, we are often called to transgress accepted moral code.

    History and clinical practice have painfully captured the consequences of our personal and collective moral transgressions, many of which have altered the course of history.  While to transgress is archetypal, so too is the need to justify our behaviors.  As Elie Wiesel has reminded us, along “with the development of the rational mind came the capacity to rationalize anything and everything,” and humanity’s hunger to expiate guilt and the discomfort of painful unconscious contents is evident in our ongoing search for scapegoats, sin eaters, and confessors.

    Jung emphasized that every analysis will involve an encounter with the archetype of morality and the numinous, and clinical practice confirms that virtually every patient will eventually have to face the reality of transgression.  Perhaps it will be a patient whose addictions results in the abandonment of family, or parents who give up for adoption a newborn child because they want a better life for themselves.  These are deeply disturbing transgressions that violate accepted behavior but which, nevertheless, may also be in service to a necessary psychic need.

    Dr. Michael Conforti is a Jungian analyst and the Founder and Director of the Assisi Institute. He is a faculty member at the C.G. Jung Institute - Boston, the C.G Jung Foundation of New York, and for many years served as a Senior Associate faculty member in the Doctoral and Master's Programs in Clinical Psychology at Antioch New England. A pioneer in the field of matter-psyche studies, Dr. Conforti is actively investigating the workings of archetypal fields and the relationship between Jungian psychology and the New Sciences. He has presented his work to a wide range of national and international audiences, including the C.G. Jung Institute - Zurich and Jungian organizations in Australia, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, Italy, Russia, Switzerland, and Venezuela. He is the author of Threshold Experiences: The Archetype of Beginnings (2007) and Field, Form and Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature and Psyche (2002). His articles have appeared in Psychological Perspectives, San Francisco Jung Library Journal, Roundtable Press, World Futures: The Journal of General Evolution, and Spring Journal, and his books has been translated into Italian, Russian and a soon to be released Spanish edition of his work.

    Workshop

    “Psychological collective guilt is a tragic fate.”   - C.G. Jung, After the Catastrophe

    Within the psyche, transgressions are often converted and expressed as unconscious guilt accompanied by self-injurious behavior.  Often the ravages of these behaviors create an unconscious symmetry between the patient and the victims who carry the wounds of these moral indiscretions so that now each lives a compromised life.

    Jung and Freud clearly understood the unconscious dynamics that accompany such moral challenges. Freud wrote that we repeat what we do not want to remember, and Jung added that what we do not face consciously comes back to us as fate.  These past transgressions live on as motive forces within the psyche, and their effects are never far from consciousness, providing evidence for what Freud understood as the “return of the repressed.”

    Psyche’s voices will not be muted by personal, cultural, or religious attitudes, nor by the machinations of conscious intent. This point is especially evident in Jung’s Red Book, wherein the Self calls him to be accountable for his actions while simultaneously mandating his travel in this dark, and unknown region of psyche where obedience to moral codes and avoidance of transgression is no longer a possibility.  Perhaps no genuine experience of the Self may occur without entering this region of forbidden desire and transgression.  Here we are asked to cross the lines of moral privilege to experience a reality that may turn us away from the prevailing winds of reason.  Shaken by the loss of the familiar, the Self takes us into the domain of the transgressive. 

    Recognizing this Janus-faced reality, we can better understand the reasons for the many prohibitions against engagement with the banned and disallowed, while also seeing how, as sirens’ song, they have fascinated and intoxicated humanity since the beginning of time. For Jung it was not the world of consensual religious and collective values to which one need be held accountable, but to the daimon of morality existing within the Self.  Perhaps in engaging with these dynamics we come face to face with the reality of the psyche and the mandates inherent in the individuation process.

    Dr. Michael Conforti is a Jungian analyst and the Founder and Director of the Assisi Institute. He is a faculty member at the C.G. Jung Institute - Boston, the C.G Jung Foundation of New York, and for many years served as a Senior Associate faculty member in the Doctoral and Master's Programs in Clinical Psychology at Antioch New England. A pioneer in the field of matter-psyche studies, Dr. Conforti is actively investigating the workings of archetypal fields and the relationship between Jungian psychology and the New Sciences.

    Course

    Five Tuesdays

    April 7, 21, 28, May 5, 12

    The purpose of this course is to provide a container of meaning where the upheaval and crisis that we are going through can find a space in which to be processed. Drawing upon the resources of the Jungian tradition, we shall draw strength, grace and perspective to meet the dangerous challenges in which we now find ourselves. A safe social space of meaning--an online temenos--will be created to counterbalance the social distancing that has its own risks of disconnection from self, other, and meaning. 

    The need for meaning and connection is archetypal--instinctual--and nowhere more so than when we are going through unprecedented and traumatic events. The psyche keeps score of it all, but the psyche can rise to the occasion and deal with the most extraordinary situations. In the words of Clarissa Pinkola Estes, we were made for these times. 

    The resources which we will use in order to support our own inner resources will be the following:

    C. G. Jung, Selected Passages (emailed to the class).

    Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Do Not Lose Heart: We were Made for these Times (emailed to the class).

    Thomas Mann, Death in Venice.

    Albert Camus, The Plague.

    Since they have been selling out, for obvious reasons, the Mann and Camus are also available on kindle and may be electronically available from your local library.


    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.

    _____________________________________

    An Evening With...

    The awakening of nourishing self love, self esteem and self care for body and mind are at the heart of every individuation and therapeutic process. In tonight’s presentation we will explore two invaluable and complementary paths to help discover and develop these qualities within ourselves; the integration of the golden shadow and self mastery through Tantric teachings.

    When we are ripe to awaken to new potentialities within ourselves, they often first become visible in another person we admire, think of as a hero, or fall in love with.  We project our luminous, yet shadowy, unconscious golden potential on to them and they carry our gold for us, for a while…usually until some disillusionment tips us off. This is an opportunity for us to recognize that the projected gold can be an unlived quality within us which we may harvest and invest in the self through re-collection of the projection. Robert Johnson says of this process: “to own one’s shadow is the purpose of life,” and that “projecting our inner gold offers us the best chance for an advance in consciousness.”

    The obstacles to reclaim this inner gold often grow out of a person’s negative self-judgment; we are not good enough to shine with such gold. In Tantra, consciously experiencing one’s passions and pleasures to the fullest is the goal. Tantric teachings provide meditational tools so that the energies of obstacles, negativities, pleasures and passions are transmuted into vehicles for enlightenment.  We learn to recognize the guru in each moment, and our most egotistical, miserable and dissatisfied thoughts are converted into fuel for our inner fire, for creativity and intimate connections. Combining the understanding of the golden shadow and Tantra allows us to fund our own inner happiness and be less dependent on others for happiness. In this way we turn our lead into gold and are able to love ourselves and others in the most profound healing way.

    Have you ever felt the presence of the Sacred as you walk in the woods, or sit quietly by the river, or dance with the ocean? Our forebears felt a strong connection with the spirits of place and had an awareness of such presences all around them. It is possible to experience the richness of connecting with the spirits of place through conscious intention and opening our hearts when we are in nature. In this workshop, we will learn about the various spirit beings who may be inhabiting a place, including Faeries, Ancestors, and Nature Spirits. We'll learn about cultivating an I-Thou relationship with these beings and exploring their presence around us. We'll take some time to step outside and connect with the spirits of Hawthorne Hill, the sacred land where the Jung Society Library is! Dress comfortably and bring a journal/something to write with.

    Sundance Metelsky is an existential shamanic mystic who has been walking the shamanic path since 1992. She has studied shamanism/shamanic techniques with Rena Yount, Tom Cowan, Nan Moss, David Corbin, Dana Robinson, Adam Davis, Mary Tyrtle Rooker, and with many helping spirits. She is a member of the Universal Temple of Spirits, the Sacred Women’s Circle, Sister Dreamers, and the Jung Society of Washington, where she is a regular attendee of classes and workshops. She has a BA in English Literature with a Minor in Psychology from the University of Maryland, and an MA in Liberal Arts from St. John's College Graduate Institute.

    Lecture 

    "We must be able to let things happen in the psyche". C.G. Jung

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge". Albert Einstein

    Soul is summoning us. In this lecture, we will first consider how both soul and imagination were viewed over the centuries with excerpts from Plato, Ibn Arabi, Meister Eckhart, Henri Corbin, and C.G. Jung. It is Corbin who writes that the kingdom of the soul is an “interworld” between matter and spirit, between the visible and the invisible. We will look at the way Jung developed the practice of active imagination during his years of confronting the unconscious (1913-1929), with excerpts from The Red Book. How can we practice our own active imaginations? We will close in examining the ways in which the imaginal informs our lives and rekindles our souls.

    A Day With

    "We must be able to let things happen in the psyche". C.G. Jung

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge". Albert Einstein

    In our workshop, we will enter the world of imagination and experience how the imaginal rekindles the soul. We will read together from the work of Henri Corbin and C.G. Jung, along with excerpts from James Hollis and Elaine Pagels. We will do our own active imaginations: writing journal entries, dialoguing with our images, drawing them in mandalas. Each active imagination will deepen our contact with the inner world and expand our consciousness, leading us forward on our path toward wholeness. We will look at ways to share the light of our consciousness with the world around us. As the poet of the imagination, Rainer Maria Rilke, wrote, we will “Speak and bear witness.” (Ninth Elegy)

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!
