Courses & Events

The Center’s Program

The Center offers a wide range of programs, some of which can be taken as distance learning courses from anywhere, others are on site in and around northern and central Vermont. Some courses are offered according to demand and as such are not scheduled into a fixed timetable.

The curriculum is delineated in 5 paths:

  • the path of contemplation and inner practices;
  • the path of investigation (the path which most closely resembles a college curriculum);
  • the path of creativity, drawing on a wide array of arts and crafts;
  • the path of physicality, designed to foster all forms of well-being; and the path of
  • practicality, which equips students with some of the core skills for the spiritual journey.

Note that all courses are not offered every year, and new courses are being created all the time, as student and faculty interests warrant. If you have an idea for a course that is not represented in the table, let us know: we encourage suggestions and will try to accommodate all substantive suggestions. Individual tutorials can be arranged for these courses, or for other subjects not listed here. Contact us for further information and guidance on setting up a tutorial. Fee schedules for individual tutorials are worked out between the instructor and student.

Apart from The Center’s programs the faculty are acknowledged experts in a variety of techniques and practices and their services are available to you.

The focus of this five-week course is on what Jung considered the most important part of his psychology: analysis. We consider what “analysis” means, what it involves, how it differs from psychotherapy, and the practical aspects of the process, e.g. how to choose an analyst, how to engage the work, and how to determine if analysis is for you. The book Components of Jungian Analysis, available on the Jungian Center store in hard copy and pdf, is suggested reading.

Stepping into Diverse Picture Books with Active Imagination; Thursday, April 18th; 7-9PM EDT; via Zoom; $25 via PayPal.Me/MariaTeresaManteo; to register, email Maria:

Are you ready to go on a journey into inner landscapes and beyond?

The rich tapestry of imagery in Picture Books will be used as a canvas for readers/viewers to take a ticket into the world of the unconscious and transcend into the dimension of creative imagination. What worlds unfold when we embrace pictorial metaphors? What messages can we salvage from the depths of our inner artists?

A wide variety of picture books of recent publication will set us afloat to initiate the journey and draw on the wisdom that springs from active imagination.

Facilitated by Maria Teresa Manteo

Prof. Maria Teresa Manteo serves on the Notable Books for a Global Society from The International Literacy Association. She is happy to share the benefits of stepping into diverse picture books – for all ages – to build bridges of empathy and understanding.

 

Jung on Aging, Wednesdays, May 1,8,17,22; 7-9PM; via Zoom; $60

Analytical psychology—Jung’s version of depth soul work—is unique among psychotherapeutic schools in its positive attitude toward old age and the aging process. Jung felt that people should live into life right up to the moment of death and he laid out a process for doing so that draws on personality type, personal talents, creative expression and a variety of life experiences that foster soul connection and anticipation of life after life. In this course we read Jung’s work on the stages of life, along with several other short works by older Jungian analysts who draw on their own experience of aging. All the course materials are provided to students before the course begins, to allow them time to do the reading. In-class activities include multiple thought-provoking exercises. Led by Sue Mehrtens, teacher and author. This course provides 16 hours of instruction suitable for CEUs.
