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 this free 90-minute introductory class, and is followed by eight college-level modules that introduce you to the essentials of Jung's understanding of the importance of alchemical symbolism. In the longer course, each weekly meeting will include a presentation and explanation of some aspect of Jung’s understanding of alchemy, a discussion and question/answer session, as well as a wealth of resources for further study available 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!
