Arts-based Applications of Jungian Psychology: Creative Pathways to Individuation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Jungian psychology maintains a core belief that human beings are in a continuous process of development. This ongoing creative cycle is greatly aided by the discovery of archetypes that speak to common human experiences. In his essay “The Stages of Life,” Carl Jung wrote, “It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” Creative and expressive arts processes when viewed through an archetypal framework invite us to identify patterns that connect our personal experience to the universal human condition. 

Arts-based Applications of Jungian Psychology

The basics of Jung’s ideas on the structure and content of the psyche will be discussed as a foundation for exploring symbolic processes with particular reference to archetypes, symbols, and the Hero’s Journey.

This Master Class is also part of the multiple-session, 4-day Immersive Training: Archetypal Approaches in the Expressive Arts TherapiesRegistration is available separately for each day.
