Welcome to the home of the C. G. Jung Foundation of Ontario on the World Wide Web.
The new season of programme offerings is now on-line. The C. G. Jung Foundation of Ontario has made 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.
Our office is located 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.
Lecture at 14 Elm
We will examine a compliant child’s temperament and potential resistance to dependency, vulnerability, and human weakness through findings in trauma literature, Greek mythopoetic themes, European literary narrative, Kalsched’s ‘self-care system’ and Ferenczi’s ‘identification with the aggressor’. Jung’s view of a problematic child and ‘one-sided extravagances of consciousness’ are also considered.

David Hockney was completely captivated by the stories collected by the Brothers Grimm, and went on to illustrate six of them. Imaginative and unconventional, his interpretations reinforce the view that fairy tales have much to say to adults, especially when viewed psychologically.
Come and explore how these tales can enrich our understanding of typical dilemmas we find ourselves entangled in, and how these dilemmas can connect us with surprisingly helpful sources within us.
