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.
Jungian Analysts of Washington Association (JAWA) Office of Clinical Studies presents:
OKSANA YAKUSHKO, Ph. D.
Chair, Clinical Psychology Department, Pacifica Graduate Institute
While regulations and social norms have shaped the world of psychology since its inception, recent efforts seek to re-define not only the boundaries of practice but also what constitutes psychological care and who is allowed to provide it. In this presentation and discussion we will question reasons for how accreditation policies in psychology and other mental health fields have already created near complete monoculture defined by CBT and behaviorism via the language of "evidence," "positive interventions," and focus on "efficient solutions." In contrast, evidence against these methods is growing, pointing to the potentially devastating effects of monocultural psychological care. As a counterbalance to these developments, Professor Yakushko will discuss peer-reviewed publications of studies evidencing the effectiveness of Jungian and depth-psychological approaches to treatment and education.

"The Visionary Company: The Poetry of Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley and Keats"
A COURSE BY DR. JAMES HOLLIS
**Please note: each lecture is organized around a specific poet (in the order in which they are mentioned in the title) and you can register per lecture for this special course!**
From the age of revolution onward, a current of protest against stultifying powers, ideas and institutions, a hunger for intensity of feeling and subjective experience over received authority and rational systems, and a desperate effort to hold fast to nature before the age of mechanization prevailed, characterizes a movement called “romanticism.” While this “movement” begat many forms in many nations, we will focus on only four of its progenitors in England—Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats--at the beginning of that world so recognizably becoming our own.

Now What Are You Really About?
- A Blog by Sandy Geller
In Memories, Dreams, Reflections in Chapter VI, Confrontation with the Unconscious, Jung writes of the great disorientation he experienced following his break with Freud. He explains that he lost his grounding, his very understanding of who he was and how he might practice. In his efforts to regain his footing he paid close attention to his dreams and fantasies including memories from childhood. He concluded that these memories were still alive in him; the child was still accessible and had no doubt come to inform Jung, the grown man. Following this and still at loose ends as a result of the break with Freud, he made the decision to return to a childhood building game. He gathered small stones from the lake and every day weather permitting, he would go out after lunch and build; cottages, a church, a whole village. He came to realize that as he did so his thoughts cleared and his grip on the unconscious contents of Psyche became known to him.
The question that Jung asked himself that day, “Now, really, what are you about?”
