Most people read Jung’s works, but few delve into the life of the man behind the ideas. In this course we explore Jung’s life—his biography, interests, hobbies, shadow side and complexes, his role as husband and father, and his amazing ability to gather devoted women around him. Students will discover the man behind the myths, the character behind the concepts, in this illuminating examination of the life of one of the geniuses of the 20th century. Jung the Man: His Life Examined, a short biography of Jung, is the text used in the course.
Women’s Herstory, Thursdays, 1/7, 2/4, 3/3; 7-9PM; 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $10 a session, 5 sessions remaining in January through May; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909 (snow dates, if necessary: 1/14, 2/11, 3/10)
This student-generated course offers a survey of 10,000 years of women’s experience, via reading and discussion of nine books, supplemented with some of the seminal essays and articles by prominent feminists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. If you wish to join the course, contact us for the reading list and CD.
The Art of Living and Dying Well, Wednesdays, 2/10,17,24 & 3/2; 7-9PM; 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $60; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909 (snow date, if necessary: Mar 9th)
People in the Middle Ages gave great care to the “ars boni moriendi,” the art of dying well, which, they recognized, entailed thinking about and planning for the experience of death. In this course students learn a variety of skills to equip them to live well so as to die well, along with a series of experiential exercises that help them to live richly and prepare for a “bona mors.”
Note: Those students who have taken 10 or more courses at the Jungian Center will shortly be receiving a gift certificate for one free course, to celebrate our 10th anniversary. If I don’t see you in person, you will be receiving this in the mail. Congratulations!—and many thanks for your years of activity with us and your interest in Jung.
