Special Topics in Jungian Psychology: Complex and Archetype


Spring 2020

A class offered by the C. G. Jung Institute of Colorado

Jungian psychology connects us to the rich and mysterious inner world that our culture so often discounts. This class will look at that world from the perspective of Jung’s concepts of the complexes and archetypes. Analysts of the Jung Institute of Colorado will lead discussions on various aspects of these concepts in Jungian psychology, exploring them with participants. This is an excellent opportunity to work with the members of the Jung Institute of Colorado, and the class is designed for beginners as well as individuals who are “experienced” in Jungian studies. Meetings will be on Wednesdays.
