Monterey Friends of CG Jung

DEPTH PSYCHOLOGY ENTHUSIASTS

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 meet regularly, sharing an enthusiasm for the philosophy and practices of depth psychology. Our meetings include presentations, discussions, and other programs.

IN-PERSON MEETINGS AND ZOOM SESSIONS

We are meeting in a hybrid fashion at the Monterey’s historical McGowan House -where we’ve held our meetings for the past 20 years! On-site (vaccinated), and by zoom for those who cannot make it in-person, we connect every Thursday at 7 pm PST. Please contact us to request a Zoom invite or to make acquaintance! You are encouraged to donate online to help us cover our costs.

BOOK STUDY

The book studies are open. And since the material is quite dense, the group is progressing rather slowly: it’s all about the great discussions! Please contact us if you want to catch up and join in.

We are reading The Earth Has a Soul: Jung on Nature, Technology, and Modern Life, edited by Meredith Sabini.

Our discussions are focused by the acute awareness of our deepening planetary crisis, while consulting Jung for such insights as “Nature, psyche, and life appear to me like divinity unfolded—what more could I ask for?” This is a monthly discussion group. Drop-ins are welcome.

We are also reading Projection and Re-Collection in Jungian Psychology: Reflections of the Soul by Marie-Louise Von Franz.

In our first legacy book written by a woman, one of Jung’s inner circle, we explore what it means to project and then to withdraw one’s projections, individually and collectively. Indeed, projection is rampant in American culture. How is that affecting our psyche?

The Legacy Series Reading Group meets once a month. Drop-ins are welcome.
