Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ― C.G. Jung
The mission of Charlotte Friends of Jung Inc. is to nurture a community based on the insights of C.G. Jung and those who have amplified his work. We offer engaging broad-based educational programs led by regional experts and international speakers. Membership is open to anyone interested in studying the teachings and ideas associated with Jungian thought.
For more than 35 years Charlotte Friends of Jung has served as a forum to enhance and deepen the understanding of the importance of depth psychological principles, unconscious dynamics and the healing power of imagination, dreams, myths and so much more. To that end, we offer a diverse array of programs that include the arts, writing, music, film and other related fields of interest.
2023-2024 Virtual Season:
Charlotte Friends of Jung is excited to have lined up five gifted presenters for the upcoming 2023-2024 season. We begin with two experiential workshops: Lionel Corbett returns this year on September 22nd to explore your dreams, followed by Patricia Elwood on Saturday, October 21st for a program based on her book, A Jungian Approach to Spontaneous Drawing. We're glad to have Dennis Patrick Slattery with us again on November 10th to delve into the stories we tell ourselves and the myths we live by. On February 23rd, Renee Cunningham unveils a thorough Jungian approach to forgiveness. We end our season with the return of the celebrated author, Thomas Moore, who will introduce us to his latest book of commentary on extraordinary wisdom stories, The Eloquence of Silence: Surprising Wisdom in Tales of Emptiness.
Go to our Calendar page for full descriptions of each program.
We will continue to host all five of this season’s presentations virtually. We’ve combined our traditional format of Friday evening lecture and Saturday morning workshop into one engaging experience. If you have a computer or smart phone and an internet connection, you’ll not only be able to enjoy some compelling events, you’ll be able to interact with our presenters and chat with some of your Jungian friends.
Registration is easier than ever! We’re offering a single membership rate (good for all individuals within a household) of $74. Membership includes free access to all five of the current season’s programs along with recordings of each so you can view those you miss at your convenience--and rewatch them often as you like. You'll also have access to prior season's recordings. Registration for individual programs is available as well for $25. To purchase, look for the Square logo on our Calendar page. As always, need-based scholarships are available. Don't hesitate to ask.
