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.

The Opening Lecture/Workshop in our Fall Series!


September 16th and 17th:

Dennis Patrick Slattery, Ph. D.


Being Called to Co-hearance: The lecture will entertain those moments in our lives of being called and our possible responses to them: accepting the call, rejecting the call, or ignoring it through “call waiting.”  It will explore Jung’s own encounter with the mythic dimension and his own quandary surrounding his not knowing what myth he himself was living. 

Writing RetreatFurthering Friday’s lecture, we will use several Writing Meditations from Dr. Slattery’s book, Riting Myth, Mythic Writing: Plotting Your Personal Story to burrow a bit deeper into patterns that contour our personal myth. 


Location: The Elderdice Room,

Wesley Theological Seminary,

4500 Massachusetts Ave., N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20016


7:30 - 9:30 p.m.

A Four-Session Course starting on the 7th of September:

 

 Dr. Melanie Starr Costello:

LOVE, SUFFERING, BETRAYAL: Works by Aldo Carotenuto on Passion and Individuation


What better discloses the tangled truths about individuation than the struggle for human relationship?  Two works by the illustrious personality theorist and Jungian analyst, Aldo Carotenuto, will guide us in our discussion of the dynamic tensions between love, affiliation, and the search for personal authenticity. We will consider ecstatic dimensions of the love experience alongside the power of longing to unleash unspeakable features of human personality: obsession, shame, jealousy, the struggle for power, and the fragmentation of identity.  

Wednesdays, 7:30- 9:30 p.m.

Location: 

The Library at the Jung Society of Washington

A Five-Session Course starting on the 8th of September:


Tim Lyons:

THE BODY AND INDIVIDUATION: Physical Healing and Awareness


Jung realized that “individuation cannot occur without the body.” The longer the blacker and denser manifestations of the shadow are denied, the greater the chance that the denseness may evolve into physical disease.  How can we become more conscious of our contracts with the devil in terms of our blood, our defenses, self-destructive lifestyles, and self-medications that become part of our negative conditioning and identity? 

In this course we will examine the essential role of the body as “mandala of the divine” and how the “will of the soul” is mirrored in the “will” of the body in the individuation process.  


Thursdays, 7:30- 9:30 p.m.

Location:

The Library at the Jung Society of Washington
