Fundamentals of Jungian Psychology

Core Concepts 1

Introduction to the Core Concepts of Jungian Psychology

2020 – TUESDAYS OCT 27, NOV 3, 10, 17, 24, 7-9 PM

Location: Zoom ONLINE

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’?  Or question how complex can a ‘complex’ be?  Or, where is the ‘shadow’ and of what?  If the ‘unconscious’ is just that, how can we talk about it?  Some of these words have crept into our everyday language and perhaps we assume that we know what they refer to, but do we?  What did Jung mean by these concepts?  Come to this seminar and find out!

This 5-week seminar is intended to help you understand some of the basic concepts that underlie Jungian psychology and are part of 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?  

In this seminar we will explore the following concepts:

  • Conscious/Unconscious; Ego and Self
  • Shadow/Persona/Complex
  • Symbol, Archetype and Instinct
  • Anima/Animus
  • Dreams

This seminar is an introduction. No previous reading or study is required in order to participate.  A reading list will be provided. Registration is limited to 12 people to provide an opportunity for fruitful discussion.

Core Concepts 2

Continued Exploration of Core Concepts of Jungian Psychology

2021 – TUESDAYS MARCH 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 7-9 PM

Location: Zoom ONLINE

This 5-week reading seminar will provide an opportunity to explore Jung’s writings on the Ego and its relationship to the Unconscious. We will be discussing Jung’s essays on Ego, Shadow, Self, and the Function of the Unconscious in the context of Individuation, found in CW Vol.9ii and Vol. 7. 

In our discussion, we will work to a better understanding through examples from fairy tales and myths. We will also use these concepts as a lens to understand not only our individual selves but also the culture of which we are a part.

Note: Previous attendance at “Core Concepts 1” is advised.

Registration is limited.  Please register early, here.
