What we're about
We are a group of people dedicated to creating a broader and deeper appreciation of analytical psychology, created by C.G. Jung. In our times of unprecedented change, we feel the urgency of re-examining our personal and collective narratives. We are committed to exploring, as did Jung, the forces that contribute to the destruction of Life and to its renewal in Wholeness.
We meet regularly, sharing an enthusiasm for the philosophy and practices of depth psychology. Our meetings include presentations, discussions, and other programs.
Our specific purpose is to meet as a group of people who share an enthusiasm for the philosophy and practices of analytical psychology created by C.G. Jung. Our meetings include lectures, workshops, seminars, and other programs.
Our founder was psychologist Joseph Pagano (1916-2012). Joseph studied at the Jung Institute in Zurich and served on the founding Board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York. Locating here in the mid-1980s as a counselor, he organized programs on dream work, process psychology, and "the phenomena of individual fulfillment." The Monterey Friends of C.G. Jung incorporated as a nonprofit in 2002.
We publish a triannual newsletter listing our Thursday evening meetings that run from 7 to 9 pm. Once a month, the Charlotte Rose Reading Group continues a long tradition of discussing the writings of Jung. We hold seasonal celebrations and occasional performance events with poetry, storytelling, music, and multimedia.
We rely completely on voluntary contributions to sustain our programs. We suggest $10 per event, but accept anything!
