“Thank you for your wonderful programs. The Jung Society has never been more vibrant!”

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU REGISTER

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services. Our policy doesn't allow us to refer you to analysts or therapists. For the list of local Jungian Analysts, please go HERE.

We require at least seven days notice prior to the first class meeting or event to cancel a registration with a full refund. We do not pro-rate courses. Occasionally a small program is in danger of cancellation due to insufficient registration, so if you’re planning to come, please register.

    Workshop

    “In the last analysis the human body, too, is built of the stuff of the world, the very stuff wherein fantasies become visible; indeed, without it they could not be experienced at all.” Jung 1940, CW 9.1, par. 290

    Explore the fascinating world of movement in an experiential class that requires nothing more than a willingness to play and a curiosity about the movement life of our experiences.  We will explore everyday gestural and task-oriented movements that acquire personal meaning as we vary their spatial range and pathways, play with their timing, and alter their sequence and phrasing.  Images and narratives will emerge.  Whole dances have been choreographed from a few simple task-oriented actions.   

    We will also take time to reflect on our own movement preferences that emerge and look, through a movement analysis lens, at ways to explore the personal meaning those preferences hold for us.   Our bodies long to speak, and they love to play.  In the words of C. G. Jung:

    “The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.  The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.”  Jung 1921, CW 6, par. 197

    Anne Warren is Professor Emerita in Dance at UMD.  She is a CMA (Certified Movement Analyst) in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies and a former dancer and choreographer. She applied her movement analysis training to the development of interdisciplinary courses in the Honors college, helping students from a wide range of majors explore the movement life of ideas in their disciplines.

    FAQ

    Is this a dance class?

    No, but maybe a better answer would be that it depends on your definition of dance.

    We will be exploring the highly developed movement language that all of us have already acquired throughout a lifetime of embodied experience and expression.  We are all dancers in our lives.

    Is any skill or prior knowledge required?

    No, you already have a very rich palette of movement available to you.  You will be able to make choices and attune to your comfort level in all of the movement explorations.  That includes the option to just observe at any point when you need or want to.    

    What is the format of the class?

    The class is experiential.  We will be alternately moving and talking throughout the class.  The class is in the library, so we will primarily explore the elements of our movement language through gestural movement.

    What should I wear?

    Whatever you are comfortable wearing.  I do recommend leaving dangling jewelry at home.

    Anything else?

    Yes, leave your inner critic at home that day.   The inner critic and the inner child don’t play well together in movement explorations.

    Workshop

    In this experiential workshop, we view processes of psycho-spiritual maturation as expressions of the cyclical processes of the natural world. We confront the ideological roots of our fear of aging and death and consider how myth and dream narratives may help us heal our alienation from our roots in nature.

    Dr. Costello guides us through a life-narrative journaling exercise to foster our awareness of varied archetypal patterns that inform our identities and relationship to the natural world.

    We consider: how do we experience our body-soul within the larger web of being? How are failure and loss related to spiritual renewal? Does longevity serve a purpose? What is wisdom?  We conclude by constructing a portrait of the individuating person, honoring the nature-based dimensions of social, family and spiritual life.

    ** Please bring writing material to the workshop!

    Melanie Starr Costello, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist, historian, and graduate of the C.G. Jung Institut-Zurich, holds a private practice off Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C.  She earned her doctorate in the History and Literature of Religions from Northwestern University.  A former Assistant Professor of History at St. Mary's College of Maryland, Dr. Costello has taught and published on the topics of psychology and religion, medieval spirituality, and clinical practice. Her study of the link between illness and insight entitled, Imagination, Illness and Injury: Jungian Psychology and the Somatic Dimensions of Perception, is published by Routledge press. Currently her work explores archetypal currents running through the collective psyche in our times—a topic she takes up in her workshops on the Stranger, Aging and Spirituality, and on Dream Cosmologies.

    Workshop

    Join us for three hours of immersion in a playful, creative, intuitive, inner space where we will explore and discover the surprising and mysterious possibilities of learning to work with brilliantly colored tissue that we will tear into random shapes then glue down--guided only by a capricious enjoyment of color, shape and artful pleasure.

    Each collage, has the potential to reveal aspects of the self culled from our inner landscapes. We will learn how to look deeply into the accidental placement of colors where we may find images that speak of the numinous, of mystery.

    We will work with Jung’s process of active imagination and learn to dialogue with the inner images. We will discover both the uniqueness of our collages, as well as that area where there is a presence of the collective. It will be an experience of working alone quietly and then witnessing and sharing in small groups. Tissue paper collage can be a healing experience of self-discovery and self-acknowledgement. Some have called it transformational.

    Come and see for yourself.

    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.
