Impact Statement

During the 2015-2016 season, the C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota successfully produced the lecture and workshop series titled “Transforming Our Lives Together,” which featured five events and six speakers, all of whom are experts in Jungian psychology and related subjects. Topics covered: archetypes and the aging process; relationships with self and others; lust, longing and love and how they fuel psychological development; Toni Wolff’s “Structural Forms of the Feminine Psyche”; Grief and loss and how interactions between our inner and outer worlds can transform suffering; and Jung, the paranormal and mysticism, including commentary on  “The Red Book.” Speakers: Dr. James Hollis, Linda Albert, Lucie Magnus, Elaine Mansfield, Jean Benedict Raffa and Dr. Bob Waxman.

The Society’s ongoing small groups, Jungian Analysis of Mythopoetic Literature and “Bring a Dream” Discussion Group, continued to grow during the 2015-2016 season, while the complementary Film Salon and Classic Film Salon, which feature discussion groups afterward to relate Jung’s work, remained popular.
Goals this year include expanding promotional efforts for the 2016-2017 program, titled "Art, Culture, Society & Jung," which features five speakers: Kevin Costello, Dr. Richard Tarnas, Dr. Tom Cheetham, Dr. Jerry Ruhl and Dr. Danielle Green. Topics include: exploring art and archetypes; modern society and the individuation process, archetypal powers and patterns in the arts; imagination, the arts and Jung; Slender Threads: the invisible patterns that shape our lives; and how the "unseen" realms shape our reality and serve as a gateway to personal and spiritual transformation.
Additionally, the Society continues to expand its ongoing small groups and film salons, and efforts are underway to develop new complementary lectures and groups.

Background Statement

The C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota is a not-for-profit educational group formed in 1994 for the purpose of studying the psychology of Carl Gustav (C. G.) Jung. It is open to all persons with an interest in Jung. All programs and activities of the Society are offered for educational purposes only and do not constitute personal therapy for any participant.

C. G. Jung, one of the most influential thinkers of our time, profoundly influenced all aspects of our modern culture, including medicine, religion, philosophy, literature and art. In the field of psychoanalysis, Jung developed his own system of analytical psychology. Through his pioneering theories of personality and the unconscious, Jung is responsible for many terms we now consider common: the archetype and the collective unconscious, introvert and extravert, anima and animus, synchronicity and individuation, even New Age spirituality. Over the years, Jung’s ideas about dream interpretation, the integration of the psyche as the goal of personal development, and the common roots of all human mythologies have achieved world recognition.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
The C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota is comprised of volunteers who are passionately seeking answers to life’s most challenging questions. We give our time and our enthusiasm, and in return we are richly rewarded with self-knowledge and a better understanding of our fellow man, our parents and our children. C. G. Jung finds such devotion due to his teaching methods (archetypes, shadow work, synchronicity, etc.). Therefore, the members of the C. G. Jung Society are very loyal and generously give of their time and money. Our challenge is to keep attracting quality speakers to our lectures and workshops, which is essential to help us grow and stay solvent.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

In today’s challenging times, we are looking inward and self-reflecting to better understand our true nature, and how it evolves through the structures of society, spirituality/religion and humankind. The exceptional body of work produced by Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav (C. G.) Jung helps us to explore, in a multidimensional fashion, the four levels of human existence (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) and how we, as human beings, integrate the seen and the unseen influences that form and inform a “human being.”  

Description This seasonal lecture and workshop series runs from November through April with local and national presenters who are experts in Jungian psychology and related subjects. Speakers present a Friday night lecture and full-day Saturday workshop on a given weekend, drawing both members and nonmembers to explore empowering topics that will expand their personal development efforts and understanding of the works of C. G. Jung and others who have followed in his path. The workshops also offer attendees an opportunity to engage and interact with other participants and the presenters in meaningful discussions, exercises and interactive presentations.

Short Term Success By participating in any or all of the lectures and workshops, attendees learn the principles of Jungian psychology and how they can be used for self-help, helping others and/or better understanding our world cultures and how human consciousness is evolving.
Long Term Success This program offers significant long-term learning opportunities for those interested in Jungian psychology. It also helps to build relationships among likeminded people. Participants learn about C. G. Jung's theories/psychology and how to apply them to their own lives and the lives of others. This program offers benefits for those who are professional therapists, analysts and psychologists, as well as individuals who are interested in self-reflection, spiritual growth, self-awareness, and interactive learning through the in-depth workshops. Jung is the founder of analytical psychology, and one of the main topics that participants learn about through this program is individuation—the lifelong psychological process of differentiation of the self out of each individual's conscious and unconscious elements. Other Jungian concepts that are introduced to provide long-term learning benefits include synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, the collective unconscious, the psychological complex, and extraversion and introversion. 
Program Success Monitoring Program success is monitored using speaker evaluations, which are completed by participants during each event.
Program Success Examples In 2015-2016, more than 90 percent of participants found programs to be helpful, interesting and informative based on speaker evaluations.
