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 November Lecture in our Fall Series!
Carolyn Bates, Ph. D.
"The UNNATURAL OTHER: Alienation and Connection in Cyberspace"
Rarely do technological advances elicit neutral responses. Jung’s address of the psychical components and psychological processes related to the phenomenon of mass sightings of UFO’s underscores the capacity for technology, imagined and real, to constellate archetypal projections.
We will consider the nexus of psychological and virtual realities in virtual space, specific projections placed on technology, and the ways in which the Internet and electronic forms of communication are either rejected as “alien other” or internalized as “known other.” Our intricate and ambivalent relationship with the virtual space provided by electronic technology suggests that such space serves as a projective container for archetypal processes and discarded aspects of psyche.
