C.G. Jung Society, Seattle
Letter of DissentC.G. Jung Society, Seattle, denounces the abhorrent acts of hatred on display in Charlottesville last weekend (8/11/2017 and 8/12/2017). We believe that white supremacy and antisemitism—tied to patriarchy, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, and settler/colonialist logics—have no place in our society. Our goal, as always, will to be to provide educational forums that can help illuminate the repressed and hidden archetypal dominants that shape our current public life, and to suggest collective processes and modes of existence that are life-affirming and transformative.
Mission StatementThe purpose of the C.G. Jung Society, Seattle, is to support a sustainable learning community centered on the life and work of Carl Gustav Jung. We promote Jung's analytical psychology, which emphasizes the development of the whole person as the path to self-knowledge, creativity, and well-being. At the Society, we examine the interplay of the conscious and the unconscious through the lens of diverse traditions, including religious, transpersonal, and mythological ones. We organize events such as lectures, workshops, and discussions that offer intellectual, participatory, as well as experiential engagement with Jung's work.
Please check out our schedule of upcoming lectures and workshops by locally- and nationally-known presenters!
Our Annual Program of EventsOur annual program of events includes nine monthly lectures and workshops, as well as seminars and study groups, including a summer workshop series exploring Jungian topics. Our presenters include both locally- and nationally-known Jungian scholars. CEUs are available for counseling professionals needing continuing education credit, and our events are, for the most part, intended for the general public.
Our LibraryOur reference library, the Nancy Alvord Library, contains more than 1,500 volumes on psychology, religion, philosophy, symbolism, and cultural anthropology. The library includes the Kate Millard Memorial Collection of rare and out-of-print works by Jung and Jungians; major depth psychology books and periodicals; and over 40 years of lectures presented to the Society, now digitized and available for listening online.
