The Jung Society of St. Louis

For those of you interested in Jungian Psychology, an excellent way to expand your understanding and meet like-minded folk is membership in a local Jung Society.  Following is a summary report of programs of our society in St. Louis:

The Jung Society St. Louis Society hosts a major Midwest Jung in the Heartland Conference every other year (September 10-13 in 2015).  The upcoming conference theme is “The Altar of the Earth,” and will include an art show that focuses on that theme.

The Society also sponsors lectures and workshops by major Jungian Analysts and scholars, provides a host of study groups led by local analysts and others well versed in Jungian studies, presents authors’ evenings for Society members who have published on topics of Jungian Psychology, offers film nights, and various other social events of interest to members.

Biennially the Society sponsors a writing contest (with the theme of the next year’s conference and focused on topics of Jungian Psychology) that draws global-wide entries.  The Society publishes winning contest entries in a book, and invited authors read and discuss their winning essays during the conference.

Lectures by Jungian analysts and scholars are videotaped and are available on DVD.  Audio recordings of the lectures are available on CD.  Jane Wilson, a long-time board member, interviews major speakers for the Society.  Those interviews are now part of the Society’s Video/Audio library and will soon be available in a collection.  Interviewees include James Hollis, Lionel Corbett, Murray Stein, Jean Shinoda-Bolen, Donald Kalsched, Monika Wikman, Gary Sparks, Mary Dougherty, Ken James, et. al.

The Society’s offerings are underwritten by subscribing members and generous donors so that all programs are more affordable for everyone.
