C.G. Jung’s Quest to Know the Unknowable

Thursday, July 15
10:00 am-12:00pm, 1:00-3:00pm

Instructor: Jane Selinske, EdD, LCSW, LP, NCPsyA

C.G. Jung was in constant pursuit for a religious function in the psyche and for understanding the intersection of spirituality and science. His childhood metaphysical experiences coupled with the conflict between a Christian and Spiritualistic Religious home environment intensified his search for understanding and meaning.  Jung leaned on his family events, history, medical and mythological education as a doorway into the creation of his Theory of Analytic Psychology.

This seminar will discuss the elements that contributed to Jung’s quest for a religious function in the psyche such as Spiritualism, his descent into the psyche after his break with Freud and his ongoing mythic life with the dead.  These elements ultimately contributed to the inception of Jungian Analytic Psychology.


Learning Objectives:

  1. To describe the conflict between Jung’s Christian and Spiritualistic Religious home environment which contributed to his search for a religious function in the psyche.
  2. To discuss Spiritualism and its contribution to Active Imagination and Jungian Analytic Psychology.
  3. To describe the conflict between Jung and Freud over Spiritualistic Phenomena and Jung’s descent into the psyche.
  4. To discuss Jung’s ongoing mythic life with the dead which came out of his original experiences with Spiritualism
