The Foundation’s Summer Study Program is a unique opportunity to meet people from all over the United States and the world who share a common interest in Jung and his ideas. Past summer participants hailed from such diverse locations as Brazil, Switzerland, Belgium, Puerto Rico, Australia, Ireland, Venezuela, and the Pacific Northwest. Both of the Intensive programs have been carefully designed to be informative and stimulating for professionals in the field and the general public. We encourage participants from a wide range of backgrounds to attend either or both sessions of our summer program.
In our second program, we will see how an understanding of the meaning of fairy tales can reveal archetypal patterns that illuminate our own development and affect our life choices. We will look at images of redemption, as described in Marie-Louise von Franz’s classic works, and how they contribute to psychological growth. We will learn what fairy tales can tell us about the psychological tasks facing us as we mature. We will explore the development of masculine consciousness and the journey of the orphan toward wholeness. Finally, we will discuss the essential image of the Mother archetype and its role in the healing of the mother complex.
