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 classics of Jungian literature.
The Fall/Spring semesters of 2017-18, Jungian analysts will be teaching celebrated works by Erich Neumann, James Hillman, Marie-Louise von Franz, Emma Jung, Edward Edinger, and Marian Woodman.
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. 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 James Hollis at Archaeon@AOL.com, 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.
From time to time in each of our lives, we face truculent choices, the consequences dire no matter what we choose. How may we discern what is right for us, and how may we face their consequences? Sophocles’s 2500 year old drama brings us back to the conundrums of choice and consequence each of us faces in our quite different journeys.

Antigone, a young woman, speaks truth to power, firmly convinced that she is right in following her moral imperative. Her King, Creon, is firmly convinced of the opposite – his law should be obeyed. This elemental ancient play about primordial human themes – honor, loyalty, love, betrayal and conviction – resonates as sharply and as damningly today as it did when it was written 2,500 years ago. This production will focus on the paradox of who is right versus who is wrong... Antigone or Creon? With the help of a modern Greek chorus, audiences will come to their own conclusions
