We welcome lay and professional people of all levels of familiarity with Jung’s work. Members receive free admission to seven lectures and our Light-hearted Evening, discounts on workshops, and other benefits. Non-members are welcome at all lectures and workshops.

Jung, Spirituality, and the Body

“The body is merely the visibility of the soul, the psyche, and the soul is the psychological experience of the body.  So it is really one and the same thing.”  (C.G. Jung, Zarathustra Seminar.)


Lecture
:
  Jung, Spirituality, and the Body

The individuation process demands that we return to our personal unconscious and our archetypal roots.  Jung invites us to honor and understand archetypal forces that push into consciousness from the somatic unconscious. This lecture will investigate the importance of witnessing and working with archetypal energies when they emerge through embodiment. These experiences are often pathologized, although they have been experienced, observed, and discussed since the beginning of human history.  How can we have a creative relationship with them?
