Charleston Jung Society

Charleston Jung Society


Take a journey into classic fairy tales through a Jungian perspective. Early bird registration closes Dec. 3rd. Continuing ed credits available. Join us online this winter for a unique Jungian series that will immerse you in the power of fairy tales and storytelling. Fairy tales reveal everyday truths with an emphasis on symbolic language and archetypal patterns. Fairy tales demonstrate the timeless, universal patterns of human nature through fantastical metaphors. At times dark or gruesome, people of all ages have enjoyed fairy tales for generations. Fairy tales present many universal problems of life, but also provide a sense of hope, showing possibilities for survival or overcoming challenges.
I have a set of the Collected Works of C.G. Jung, the original Bollingen series 2nd edition, printed between 1960-1979. This is 21 hardcover books taking up nearly 3 ft. of shelf space. No dust jackets, in good condition except for occasional checks and marked lines that keep the books from being library quality. I bought this set many years ago when I was studying Jung and never considered what might eventually become of them, but I'm old now and worrying that my children will throw them out when I'm gone. I'd like to donate them to someone (or an institution) that will value them as much as I do. Any suggestions? I live in Charleston.
Don't miss our October 14 speaker, J.P.Sears, one of the most profound, insightful, brilliant coaches on the planet. I.E., he's not just hilarious!

CJS is a non-profit organization founded to share the many dimensions of Jungian thought with our friends and community. CJS plans monthly presentations on a variety of subjects related to Jungian thought and psychoanalysis.

The Society plans regular lectures, workshops, and classes taught by resident and guest speakers and by offering a forum for the friendly exchange of ideas.

April 10th ~ The Complex: Architect of Our Dreams -

[03/29/21]   Archetypes are like riverbeds which dry up when the water deserts them, but which it can find again at any time. An archetype is like an old watercourse along which the water of life has flowed for centuries, digging a deep channel for itself. The longer it has flowed in this channel the more likely it is that sooner or later the water will return to its old bed. “Wotan” (1936), CW 10, § 395.

[02/15/21]   The unconscious has an inimical or ruthless bearing towards consciousness only when the latter adopts a false or pretentious attitude. (C.G.Jung, CW 7, par. 346)

[11/03/20]   “In ourselves we have a shadow; we have a very bad fellow in ourselves, a very poor man, and he has to be accepted.”
Jung, The Symbolic Life, para. 638


" We know from experience that the protective circle, the mandala, is the traditional antitode for chaotic states of mind." Jung, Collected Works, Vol 9, p.1, para 16


Collective unconscious= archteypes. Personal unconscious=complexes.

An Offering from Bud Harris, PhD ~ Midnight in America -


Give yourself
To the facts of the unconscious...
Let your madness give new life to your consciousness.

[05/17/20]   Perhaps it would not be too much to say that the most crucial problems of the individual and of society turn upon the way the psyche functions in regard to spirit and matter.
– C. G. Jung
