Event Description

Jung conducted an exhaustive study of the ancient practice of alchemy and believed alchemists experienced an inner transformation while exploring the mysterious chemical substances that they studied.

Jung’s understanding of the unconscious as expressed through the imagery and texts of the alchemists has far-reaching implications for modern people.

For Jung, ancient alchemical texts provide us with a wealth of symbolic insight into the human mind and human behaviors that continue to be vitally relevant today.

This online course begins with a free 90-minute introductory class, followed by 8 college-level modules that introduce you to the essentials of Jung's understanding of the importance of alchemical symbolism. In the 8-wk course, each meeting will include a presentation and explanation of some aspect of Jung’s understanding of alchemy, a discussion and Q&A session, as well as a wealth of resources for further study through our online learning platform.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get a solid understanding of Jung’s work with alchemy and the importance of alchemical symbolism for modern people!

In the 8 wk course, participants will

  • Learn the historical context of the practice of alchemy from ancient Egypt to the Enlightenment era, from the perspective of both the history of science and the history of religions
  • Learn how/why Jung became interested in alchemy and many of the details of his publications on the subject
  • Learn how to understand and recognize alchemical symbolism in dreams and active imagination work
  • Learn how alchemical symbolism can help us understand the individuation process in ourselves and others
  • Discover a wealth of resources for deepening understanding of alchemy from a Jungian perspective
  • Have an opportunity to complete online assignments toward earning a certificate of completion (certificate may be used as credit toward future certification in depth psychology through Depth Psychology Alliance)
