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.
It has never been more important to become fully aware of ourselves and the world around us: come and explore with us as we launch the Spring Schedule!
With warm wishes for Spring,
the Jung Society of Washington

Four Tuesdays in June:
A COURSE BY JAMES HOLLIS:
SOPHIA AS MUSE:
Four Philosophical Questions Addressed by Poets
The purpose of art is art, not to produce argument or analysis. Nonetheless, poets who are humans first also wonder about the large questions of life. This course will address four philosophical questions and illustrate some responses poets have embodied in their work. The questions are: why are we here; what is our obligation to the natural order, does the universe make sense and how are we to best conduct our lives?
APRIL 21ST AND 22ND:
Presenting the next in our Lecture/Workshop Series:
Dr. Michael Conforti, speaking on
TIME OF THE FORGOTTEN: Trauma, Memory and Healing
Virtually every culture and spiritual tradition speaks to the all-too-human tendency to forget and the profound need to remember. For the Catholics, there is Anamnesis, a prayer and experience of remembrance of our transpersonal heritage, and in the Jewish tradition, there is the Day of Remembrance.
Dr. Conforti will discuss the reality and consequences of living in a "Time of the Forgotten" and ways to know and remember the contours of this personal and timeless archetypal domain, where past, present, and future collapse into a moment, illustrating these points through clinical examples, and Elie Wiesel's writing on trauma and the need to remember.
Michael Conforti, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst, author, and founder/ director of the Assisi Institute. His work has resulted not only in a training institute based on his discoveries, but also in the development of a new discipline: Archetypal Pattern Analysis. Dr. Conforti is actively investigating the workings of archetypal fields and the relationship between Jungian psychology and the New Sciences.
Lecture on April 21st, in the Sanctuary of the Palisades Community Church,
from 7:30- 9:30 p.m.
Day-long Workshop (limited space) on April 22nd, in the Library of the Jung Society of Washington, from 10:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m.
Both locations are at 5200 Cathedral Avenue, N.W.
Jungian Analyst and Executive Director of the Jung Society, James Hollis, on the nature of Depth Psychology. See more of his videos here.
COMPLEXITY, CREATIVITY AND ACTION: CONFERENCE
by The Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies and the Jung Society of Washington,
June 22nd- June 25th 2017
We invite you to participate in a multidisciplinary gathering of scholars exploring complexity, creativity, and action in the context of Jungian and post-Jungian concepts. The conference will be held at the Key Bridge Marriott, Thursday evening June 22 – Sunday evening, June 25, 2017. We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will be Joe Cambray, Ph.D.
In recent years, major advances in the development of complexity and dynamical systems theory have provided new perspectives for understanding Jung’s model of psyche. The papers in this conference will address perspectives of complexity in systems ranging from clinical practice and social action to visual art, film, dance, and literature. A major theme of the conference, “Myth in Our Time,” will explore complexity, creativity, and action in the context of the contemporary state of the political system.
Details will be forthcoming through the JSSS website:www.jungiansociety.org.
