LECTURES, COURSES, WORKSHOPS
Welcome to the 2013 – 2014 Public Programme
… and to our new home at 14 Elm Street. Introducing new perks for members!
Greetings and welcome to the Jung Foundation’s 2013- 2014 Public Programme. It gives me pleasure to introduce the new season of the C. G. Jung Foundation’s Public Programme, as well as our “new beginning” with the relocation of our office and library to the Arts and Letters Club at 14 Elm Street in downtown Toronto.
We are very excited about our new office space, which has superb central access, bountiful amenities, as well as a great new affiliation with one of Toronto’s most established cultural institutions which has been home to Canadian writers, musicians, architects, academics and supporters of the arts since 1908. Many new opportunities lie ahead.
In the enclosed brochure, you will find the year’s diverse and enticing program—from lectures on detective stories and opera, to poetry, dance and sandplay, from explorations of old age, fairy tales and colour symbolism to—yes!—crop circles and zombies!
We also continue in 2013-2014 with the innovations to membership implemented in the last two years, our new event pricing structure and the convenient online payment facility.
SUPPORTING THE WORK OF C.G. JUNG WITH YOUR MEMBERSHIP
It is important to remind you that your membership is a vital contribution for the Foundation’s promotion of the work and ideas of C G Jung. All local analysts’ time in giving lectures and seminars is donated. Your membership contribution helps defray costs associated with holding the events. As last year, your member fees will also be acknowledged as contributions and as such, if you wish, you will receive charitable tax receipts.
NEW MEMBER PERKS
Foundation members will continue to receive benefits such as charitable donation receipts for fees and access to our library (now in our office in the Arts and Letters Club). However, for this season we are also introducing two new items. If you are a member, you now will be able to purchase an eight-lecture package for just $110 (no longer available), giving you substantial savings. As well for members, if you pay for lectures at the event venue, you will still receive the early discount, which otherwise is only offered for on-line booking.
We hope you will find the new programme stimulating for your own interests and a valuable contribution in supporting the work of C. G. Jung. See you in the Fall.
Thank you for your support,
Featured public events
In Jungian Sandplay, images are formed in a tray partly filled with wet or dry sand. Miniatures may be used and the resulting sand scenes allow psychic contents to find embodied form. The Sandplay process invites guidance from the Self during a protected descent into the preverbal level of the psyche.
Participants in Saturday’s workshop will explore the process of building sand pictures through their own direct experience. A series of different exercises will assist the group to make a safe exploration of the individual images, memories and feelings that can arise by letting the deep non-verbal wisdom contained in the hands take over the lead from the talking head.
All materials will be provided by the seminar leader, including individual sand trays and selections of miniatures.
We often assume a common understanding of the term “the masculine” yet it is a notion based in gender that suggests a range of qualities and can be related to many archetypes. To better understand our assumptions and enhance our appreciation of the topic we will follow highlights from Jung’s Collected Works through an abundance of writing about men a generation ago to the present day. This discussion will reinforce the importance of finding meaningful connection to “the masculine” through deeper exploration of our own symbolic material.
