What we're about

"Jung's psychology offers not only a method for psychological healing of individuals but also a new world view for Western Man which holds out the possibility for healing the split in the contemporary collective psyche". ( Edward Edinger, 1998 )

Meet and gather with other Jungian/Analytical & Transpersonal/Depth/Existential enthusiasts. Explore Jung's oeuvre, his life and his luminous ideas on the human psyche with similiar-minded individuals in a non-judgmental, quasi-studious and supportive community. Lets gather and discuss his life, his well known theories that raise the question of the meaning of life. Recollect and reunite with the Archetypes and take one step closer to the gnosis of Self-realization.

Let us together leave each meetup/conversation with a perspective wider, deeper, and richer than the one we had when entering it.

PLEASE NOTE :

As a member, you must be conscientious with the reading assignments and exercise some degree of studiousness. And HONOR your RSVPs.

RSVPs are a riddle and have become somewhat problematic, particularly when a "waitlist" is required, due to limited-space at some venues (ie: Kristine Mann Library)

Please HONOR your rsvp.

A "no" is only necessary when you change a YES rsvp to a NO.

Unfortunately, after 6 years of meet-up experience, I am compelled to closely monitor RSVPs (thanks to help from asst. organizers). If you chronically do not honor your YES rsvp, and a wailist is necessary, I will act accordingly. For example, I may change your rsvp to accommodate a more reliable member, possibly a new member.

I prefer a committed membership, as anyone would.

If you are on a "waitlist", please DO NOT ATTEND the event. However, you are free to contact me and we will make a final decision.

I know this may sound silly, but again; past experiences are compelling me.

Lastly. Completion of assigned readings are HIGHLY preferred, not required. Lack of reading tends to contribute to the derailment of discussions at meet-ups.

Again, I want to welcome everyone with an affinity for the Analytical approach and the transpersonal and depth psychologies.

Thank you for your attention and for joining this reading and conversation group.

Join us sooner than later.

Lets Talk about Jung : Meetup #10 , Owning and Meeting the "SHADOW"

NOTE : Again, due to a last-minute problem relating to COVID, I am compelled to reschedule this meet-up to Tuesday, January 25. I hope this will serve most members.

This will be our 10th Meetup.

Lets continue from where we left-off.

So please, please read Part 7 (pp.163 - 192), a total of 6 essays.

Again, please read the essays so the conversation can remain focus.

Hopefully we will be able to cover them all.

Below, I will insert a FREE PDF for Zweig's and Abrams' book. "MEETING THE SHADOW."

If necessary, you may need to search it in Z-library for yourself.

In addition, I'm inserting a wonderful youtube video with Connie Zweig. This is NOT in lieu of her book. Check it out if life permits.

CG Jung has described the Shadow as hidden and/or unconscious aspects of oneself, both good and bad, which the Ego either repressed or never recognized.

The Shadow is not only an individual problem. Groups and nations have a "collective shadow" which can lead to dangerous actions such as racism, scapegoating and enemy-making, and WAR.

When possible, we will meet every Tuesday at 7 when life and Psyche permit us.

As usual, we will follow the "ROUND TABLE" format. I will facilitate.

VOLUNTEERS are always welcomed to lead weekly meetups.
Just let me know if you're interested in a timely manner by messaging me and/or emailing me.

with gratitude,
Jorge.
