The Jung Society of Washington, dedicated to the experience of the Self, serves the "still small voice" of human longing (sometimes called "holy longing") that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of silence, contemplation, creativity, and imagination. Our programs support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the "heroic struggle" for personality integration and wholeness that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation." We offer lectures, courses, workshops, evenings with distinguished analysts, that help guide our unique inner venture. Read about our Programs here.

December 4th Dr. Rowland's Lecture:
SHAKESPEARE AND ARCHETYPES
How Did Shakespeare Become American?
By providing psychological and culture archetypes that influenced the Founding Fathers and some Native Americans? By setting the stage for our understanding of current political drama? Is his theater the real magic that gives us clues to how theater and political drama continues today?
Come and hear for yourself.
December 5th Workshop:
A Continuation of The Bard and Archetypes
Begins with a short lecture and discussion on Shakespeare and the deep feminine, looking at his treatment of war and marriage and taking his comedy, Much Ado About Nothing as an example (no previous knowledge of the play required). Continues with an activity exploring archetypal and personal transferences to a range of characters. Then an exploration of the relationship of theater to active imagination. There will be an opportunity to practice some active imagination or deep image work with some of Shakespeare’s poetry. Finally, a diving into Shakespeare’s transformational magic, from the active imaginations and by looking at his four key genres in relation to Jungian psychology: tragedy, comedy, history, problem play. Come and explore the question: To what extent is Shakespeare the progenitor of Jungian psychotherapy?
