As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. — C.G. Jung
The C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado (CGJIC) is an organization that has been in existence since 1976. We have as one of our central goals the promotion and continuation of research in the field of Analytical Psychology. Most of the faculty are writers or artists, as well as analysts, actively engaged in our own creative/psychological work and in presenting that work to the greater Jungian and psychological communities. In the seminars, we teach using our own research, the research and writing of current and historically significant Jungians, and material from related fields of depth psychology. With over twenty-five analyst members we offer a wide diversity of approaches and ideas, helping to keep Jungian Psychology growing. While staying abreast of contemporary developments in Analytical Psychology our members retain a deep commitment to Jung’s original concepts and insights. Each year, we require our students to read and study a substantial amount of C.G. Jung’s original texts, as we consider his work to be the foundation of our training program. Our seminars are designed to encourage individual students to find their own way of connecting to Jungian psychology specifically, and to depth psychology in general.
