Monterey Friends of CG Jung


We are group of people dedicated to creating a broader and deeper appreciation for how Carl Jung’s Depth Psychology can enrich the purpose and meaning of life.

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.


While we moved our events to the enchanted world of ZOOM, we are anticipating a Magical Portal to open in the dining room of Monterey’s historical McGowan House -where we’ve held our meetings for the past 20 years! It will allow lost souls’ digital avatars to connect with a small group of real persons every Thursday at 7 pm. Please contact us to request a Zoom invite or voice your interest for joining in-person when the Portal opens. Stay tuned. You are still encouraged to donate online to help us cover our costs.

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 starting a new book: The Psychology of the Transference, C.G. Jung

“In this seminal work Jung describes the psychology of the transference in terms of the symbolism of alchemy and the illustration to the Rosarium philosophorum.” We will discuss Jung’s interpretation of the Rosarium philosophorum, a set of twenty wood block prints from the 16th century. While there are twenty prints, Jung limited his discussion to the first ten. By analyzing all twenty, we will attempt to gain additional insight into alchemical processes, and perhaps have a broader understanding of the individuation process and the purpose of alchemy.


We are also reading Re-Visioning Psychology, James Hillman

In 1975, James Hillman published Re-Visioning Psychology, which is perhaps his most important book, and certainly constitutes one of the main texts in archetypal psychology. A “groundbreaking classic exploring the necessity of connections between our life and soul and developing the main lines of the soul-making process.”


Here are some of the talks hosted by the Monterey Friends of CG Jung.
