Welcome to the home of the C. G. Jung Foundation of Ontario on the World Wide Web.
 
The new year of programme offerings is now on-line. From this year, we are making the transition to fully electronic communications, which means that if you want to save a copy, or print, our Public Education Programme bulletin, you may need Adobe Reader on your computer. 

We seem to have made a flawless transition to our new home downtown in the lower floor of the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto. Do come by and visit us when the library-office is open on Thursdays. Staff may also be there on other days, so do call or email ahead to see if another time can work for you.

Seminar

Caroline Duetz
Sugar – Loving and Loathing
Sun., May 10
10:30am-1:30pm

Sugar can be a source of pleasure and comfort as well as a necessary component of many celebrations such as the much anticipated birthday cake. At the same time, sugar creates numerous problems. Health practitioners are finally starting to recognize that too much sugar poses a danger to our health. What is not generally known is that sugar can also be addictive, setting up reactions in the brain that are identical to those observed when we ingest serious drugs such as heroin.

This seminar will examine the symbolism of sugar, explore the psychological needs that can be satisfied by sugar, discuss some of the health-care concerns about sugar, review what is now known about the influence of addictions on the brain and investigate the link between trauma and addictive behaviour

Lecture at 14 Elm

Graham Jackson
The War on Eros
Fri., May 22
7:30-9:30pm

Jung wrote, “Where love reigns, there is no will to power; and where the will to power is paramount, love is lacking.” (CW7, par. 22) A simple, verifiable statement, we might say, but what happens when the will to power through several seductive guises such as fashion, social media, and so-called technological superiority threatens the very existence of that “questionable fellow”, Eros. This lecture explores his struggles for survival in a society increasingly addicted to one-upmanship and celebration of sentimentality.
