"Envy and jealousy are awesome and subtle forces in human nature and favorite allies of our individual and collective shadows."
- Sir Laurence van set Post, Epilogue from, The Life and Work of C.G. Jung

In his Forward to The I Ching, Jung wrote, "Since a share in something great always arouses envy, the chorus of the envious is part of the picture. "

Through the lens of analytic psychology, this lecture and workshop explores the role that envy and jealousy play in human relationships. We will look at their archetypal nature and the teleology of the symptoms. We will try to understand what makes us vulnerable to these emotions and ultimately, how they can lead to either destruction or transformation. Mythology, fairy tales and literature as well as dreams and examples from personal life will amplify the role that these difficult emotions play in the individuation process.
