    Is there an “American” poetic voice, and if so, how might we find representative expressions of this contribution to the world?   In this four week class we will read a variety of American poets ranging from Whitman and Dickinson to Frost, William Carlos Williams, Robert Lowell, Stephen Dunn, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Kumin, and several others.  Upon registration for the course, the class member will be sent the assigned texts electronically.

    The Jung Society of Washington Jungian Studies Reading Seminar includes eight monthly seminars offered per year to read and discuss The Collected Works of Carl Jung.

    While some of the prior members of the Jung Studies Reading Seminar will be continuing with the program in 2018-19, the Jung Society opens up participation to new members for the next academic year program.

    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 one Saturday per month from 9 to 4:30 during the months 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. 

    Anyone who is interested, please submit a one page letter of interest (with an introduction of yourself and your interest in Jung) and a resume to Radhika at radhika@jung.org.
