LECTURES, COURSES, WORKSHOPS
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.

Jung has said that all religions are therapeutic systems. Based on findings from Jung's association experiment, Professor Brown will suggest that the language of traditional liturgies can have a healing effect on the worshipper.

The workshop begins with the Giveaway Ceremony. According to Aboriginal tradition the gift that we give away leaves space for the gift that we need for the next phase of our life. Each participant brings a wrapped gift, something that has been of value (not necessarily monetary value) and that is ready to be passed on. During the ceremony the participants exchange gifts in such a way that they do not know who is the donor and who will be the receiver. “There is, explicitly or implicitly, a personal claim bound up with every gift” (C. G. Jung, CW11, par. 390). What are our gifts? How does giving and receiving make us feel? We shall work and play with these themes through active imagination and oil pastels. (Artistic experience not needed. Materials provided.)
