Introduction to the Core Concepts of Jungian Psychology
Facilitated by local analyst Peggy Voth
Do you ever go to a lecture of the Society and wonder what on earth the presenter is talking about when they refer to an “archetype” or to the “Self” (with a big S)? Do you question how complex a ‘complex’ can be? Or puzzle over “the “shadow” – where is it, and of what? If the “unconscious” is unconscious, how can we talk about it? Some of these words have crept into our everyday language.
Perhaps we assume we know what they refer to, but do we? What did Jung mean by these concepts? Come to this seminar and find out!
A 5-week seminar offered by the Society is intended to help you understand some of the basic ideas that underlie Jungian psychology. These concepts provide an approach to understanding ourselves. In this seminar we will not only explore how Jung developed these ideas but also look at how these concepts can be useful when applied to our everyday experience. What does it look like when our “shadow” is activated? How do we know when we are in a “complex”? This seminar is an introduction; no previous reading or study is required to register. Readings may be assigned during the course of the seminar.
Registration is limited to 12 people in order to provide opportunity for fruitful discussion.
