The Annual WSJP Members’ Day “Festival of Workshops” continues to attract new members. In 2002, April Barrett, board member since 1995 and program director and vice president since 1997, accepts the position of the Jung Society’s first Executive Director.

In 2003, distinguished Jungian analyst and author Murray Stein delivers a lecture and workshop:  “Answer to Job.”  For the 2004-2005 academic year, the theme, “The Symbolic Life,” informs the curriculum.

In 2006, the JAAGMA organization teams with the Smithsonian Institution Residents Association to present “Dreams, Myths, and Symbols:  Freud, Jung, and The Battle of the Unconscious Mind,” drawing participation and support from the WJSP membership. The WJSP organizes its lecture series on year-based themes, including the Archetype of the Self, the Living Psyche, the Wisdom of the Psyche, and the Creative Unconscious. The organization’s newsletter becomes available through e-mail or by downloading from the organization’s website, <>. With the goal of improving the organization’s online visibility and making it easier for searchers to locate, in 2007, the WSJP changes its name to the Jung Society of Washington.


One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
