C. G. Jung
“The symbols of the Self arise in the depths of the body
and they express its materiality every bit as much as the structure of the perceiving consciousness.“
The C. G. Jung Institute of Santa Fe is a non-profit organization for persons interested in the depth psychology of Carl Gustav Jung. The Institute offers a variety of programs to both professionals and the general public to introduce and deepen understanding of Jung’s psychology individually and in the world.
For Fall 2021 – Spring 2022, we are offering Public Programs as Zoom interactive Saturday morning webinars.
We had hoped to resume in-person lectures and workshops beginning in March 2022. However, due to the continued threat of COVID-19, all Spring 2022 programs will be held online via Zoom.
You can register and pay for public programs online. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Note: All times for programs are in Mountain Time zone, unless otherwise stated.

BRADLEY A. TEPASKE, Ph.D. Dr. TePaske’s presentation offers four segments on our depth psychological relationship with our planetary environment. The focus of tonight’s lecture is “Pacha Mama: Reflections of Eros in Nature.” While Pacha Mama is indigenous to the Andes and Amazonia, an initial sense of her nature is conveyed in biblical passages such as Wisdom in the 8th Chapter of Proverbs who fashions the world and in the Apocryphal book, Wisdom, where she possesses knowledge of solstices, the nature…Find out more »
RENEE CUNNINGHAM, M.A., M.F.T. The lecture will focus exclusively on the March from Selma to Montgomery and the development of culture through the implementation of the eightfold path of nonviolence. The concepts of individuation, the Ego/Self Axis, the cultural unconscious and cultural complex will be demonstrated and amplified as key components of development within the individual and culture. Archetypal nonviolence will be defined and amplified utilizing Gandhi’s concepts of Satyagraha and Ahimsa, and King’s six tenets of nonviolence. The group…Find out more »
SHERYL CORCHNOY, M.A., LMFT Well before the Covid-19 Pandemic there were half a billion gamers in the world. Since the global movement to 'shelter in place', the games industry has reported record numbers, as millions more have turned to online gaming for related contact and entertainment from home. The most highly populated Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) today? World of Warcraft (WoW) —but it isn’t just a game. It’s a virtual environment—a derivative story wherein world mythologies are…Find out more »
STEVEN BUSER, M.D. At the age of eighteen, while still in high school, Marie-Louise von Franz met Carl Jung at his Bollingen Tower. She later described this as the most decisive encounter of her life. She entered into analysis with him months later, completed her doctorate in classical philology and began seeing her first analysands soon after. She was wholeheartedly dedicated to the unconscious, both in her own life and that of her analysands. She developed a far-reaching expertise in…Find out more »
SUSAN CLEMENTS NEGLEY, MA, LPC According to Jung, the Persona is an image—a social mask—that helps us meet the universal need for relationship to the outer world. This presentation will explore the necessity and usefulness of the Persona but also the conditions under which the Persona becomes a problem. We will use a series of charming and intimate cartoons created by Texas artist Mark Smith to explore Jung’s theory of the Persona. Jung’s theory of the personal Shadow stands on…Find out more »
DONALD KALSCHED, Ph.D., JEROME BERNSTEIN, M.A.P.C., NCPsyA., and JACQUELINE WEST, Ph.D. For the past few years, each November, a group of panelists—Jerome, Jacqueline, and Don—have each presented their current reflections about the dynamic state of our country. This year we will address how the past months have presented each of us, personally, and socially, with a world that is bearing remarkable changes that are intensified by the profound threats of climate change compounded with the COVID 19 pandemic. These forces…Find out more »
WARREN SIBILLA, PHD, HSPP In the throes of his Red Book period, Jung wrote an essay on what he called the Transcendent Function (1916) in which he laid out the workings of the unconscious, the transformative energy in symbols, and the means of accessing such energy—namely the dream. Using real life examples drawn from his newly published book, My Journey to Ironman: Endurance Sports as a Means of Individuation, Dr. Sibilla will guide us through this seminal essay drawing from…Find out more »
FRANCES HATFIELD, PHD, MFT By the time of Homer’s Odyssey, where we find the first mention of Oedipus, the myth was already ancient, reaching into prehistory. Sophocles’ play Oedipus Tyrannus was first performed in Athens shortly after the plague years of 430-426 BCE, in which more than a quarter of its inhabitants died, leading to its defeat by Sparta and ending its status as a superpower in Ancient Greece. The play opens with the inhabitants of Thebes begging King Oedipus…Find out more »
GUILFORD DUDLEY, PHD It was inevitable that someday a man in a highly visible leadership position would give flesh and blood to the cultural archetype of toxic masculinity lurking in the collective psyche as Donald Trump did. We have him to thank for the personification, mirroring back to us a distorted masculinity that thrives on aggression, domination of other humans, and dominion over the natural world. Cultural ideals and archetypes change and evolve, and we have the opportunity to embrace…Find out more »
MARYBETH CARTER, PHD The Swedish artist, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), has transitioned from obscurity to prominence as was illustrated recently by a solo exhibition of her work. This exhibition (October 12, 2018-April 23, 2019) became the Guggenheim New York’s most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago. In addition to the incredible visual quality of her art, af Klint impels the viewer to consider concepts and states similar to Jung’s (1875-1961) creative expressions, both through his visual works…Find out more »
