collages by Elise Wiarda

The exhibition took place on February 9, 2018 at the Butler Board Room at the American University as part of the James Hollis's lecture In-Between Times: Something Gone, Something Not Yet


This year Jungian Studies Reading Seminar - Classics in Jungian Literature 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.

The Jungian Studies Reading Seminar has concluded its initial two-year study of the Collected Works of C.G. Jung and awarded certificates to its participants. While some of the prior members will be continuing, the Jung Society is opening up participation to new members for a new two-year program reading the Collected Works of C. G. Jung. The Fall/Spring semesters of 2018-19, Jungian analysts will be teaching and leading discussions on volumes in the Collected Works and other books written by Jung.

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.

Anyone interested in applying should direct their questions or applications to radhika@jung.org, or by 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.


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.

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.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
