Jung in the South

Calling those who live east of the Mississippi and south of the Mason-Dixon. I love California, Chicago, New York and New England, but need to connect with others in the South who are interested in exploring Jungian/Archetypal theories and practice.

Since my graduate program doesn't offer any Jungian courses regularly, I'm getting ready to draft a proposal for an independent study course that focuses specifically on Jung.  There's a couple of…Continue

Hello Jeanne and Brian. I see you are both in GA while I am in KY. I have a small LLC that is interested in eventually hosting an event/assembly focusing on Jungian/archetypal issues and answers. Are there any Jungian/archetypally focused groups in your area (GA), like a Friends of Jung group, dream group, etc???

Hello Ed and Brian,
I am a member of the C.G. Jung Society of Atlanta, even though it's about an hour and a half from Rome. It has an active event schedule:

I would be interested in ways of connecting with Pacifica students/alumni without having to fly across the country to do it! So, I'd like to hear more about your ideas.
Comment by Ed Koffenberger on June 25, 2010 at 8:01pm
Thanks Jeanne. I have spoken to a few of the professors and presenters about coming into our area for a Jungian/archetypal focused conference.
Curiously, New York and Chicago's Institutes have gotten better press or offer more stuff that I get in the mail. This is the first I have heard of the Atlanta group, tough I expected there might be such a group somewhere in the South. I have asked whether Pacifica might want to expand its program into other regions but they are concentrating more on restructuring their own program now. Would you available to talk more about planning a weekend, Southern conference of Jungian/archetypal speakers and experiences? I've even thought of creating a loose confederation (Boy, does that sound Southern!) to plan yearly conferences that would continue the discussion in the South. What are your interests??

Hi Ed!
I am off to the International Association for the Study of Dreams tomorrow in Ashville and am presenting the workshop: "Dancing with Dream Images." My whole pursuit of a PhD at Pacifica started by following my dreams. I attended Steve Aizenstat's weekend introduction to DreamTending at the Atlanta Jung Society one October, began his 6 month dreamwork intensive the following January, and enrolled at Pacifica that fall. Now, five years later, I am (hopefully) finishing up my dissertation.

With the demands of grad school behind me, I would be open and very interested in working collaboratively on a Southern conference/retreat/workshop. Are you familiar with Journey conferences or the Journey into Wholeness conference in North Carolina? I presented "Dancing the Chakras" there last fall.

My interests focus on the interconnection of soma-soul-psyche to access self; or more clearly stated an embodied approach to dreaming and the individuation process. My Masters is in Dance and I've been dancing most of my time on the planet! I'm also very interested in Somatic Psychology, with lots of early work and training in Dance Therapy, with a more recent certification as a Somatic Movement Therapist. I teach the dance program at Berry College, a private, liberal arts college. I also have a small private practice offering on Somatics, Reiki and Yoga.

So, yes. Let's connect and see what might manifest in the South!

I can't tell you how much I love dance. I was on the Board of a dance company in North Carolina and have supported dance groups everywhere I have lived. Nothing can get to me like dance. Even danced a little in an experimental dance piece about my experience of having cancer.

You spark a title for a set of workshops: Dream Dance
I'll think on this one awhile but what is your initial response?
Comment by Jeanne M. Schul on July 1, 2010 at 4:46pm
Dream Dance . . . . I LIKE IT!!!

Just back from the dream conference in Asheville and I am in love! It was an incredible experience to present to such an open, receptive group. Plus, there were so many good sessions every time period, it was challenging to choose! I hope I'm presenting next June in the Netherlands . . . .

You are more experienced than I in presenting (but I've been a teacher for over 20 years). The Journey into Wholeness in NC: I'm having trouble getting a correct website. Seems several folks like the title. If you have a web address for them, I would appreciate it. I like the idea of a college/university hosting an assembly - less "baggage" than if it is at a church. Retreat centers are also nice but costly, unless we find a retreat center that finds our idea appealing.
Question: There are yogic approaches that involove dance. Would these also be in line with the way you see this unfolding? I'm heading to NC for a dance-related retreat at the end of the month, so I might network with some folks there too. Imagining the conference happening, what would you like to present? I've also gotten some training in dream work at Pacifica and through the Haden Institute in NC. They might be interested in presenting as well.
I know these thoughts are scattered, I'm normally not like this except when I'm excited about an idea. You are getting the stream-of-consciousness version of me.
Comment by Jeanne M. Schul on July 25, 2010 at 2:14pm
I'll keep this southern conference in mind while I am at the Jungian conference at Cornell University. The more models we consider the richer our potential outcome, don't you think? Of course, we can also end up over-stimulated and out of focus! So, balance is also needed.


You need to be a member of Jung in the South to add comments!
