“The right way to wholeness is made up of fateful detours and wrong turnings.” — C.G. Jung

Mission Statement for the C.G Jung Institute of Colorado

The mission of the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado is to carry forward C.G. Jung’s explorations of the human psyche and the psyche’s relationship to society at-large; to train analysts skilled in the specifically Jungian approach to working with human problems and potentials; and to educate the public about developments in Jungian thought and practice. We base our work on Jung’s notion of the psyche as a living, autonomous force that manifests in different ways, including dreams, imagination, symbols, relationships, and synchronicities; and on the belief that the essence of Jungian analysis is listening carefully to these varied manifestations. Ours is a vision that hews closely to the essential teachings of Jungian psychology, but remains open to new insights from the humanities, sciences, and the arts as they evolve. In pursuing our mission, we are interested in the continuing expansion of human consciousness and the extension of applications of Jungian psychology to individual and collective life. As a community, we are committed to open communication and mutual respect.
