OFJ is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to exploring the ideas of C.G. Jung. Since 1974, we have been presenting lectures and workshops in Portland led by Jungian analysts from around the world. 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.
