Founded in 1997, The New Orleans Jungian Seminar offers advanced study in the psychology of C. G. Jung. It is designed for individuals seeking to deepen their understanding of themselves, for mental health professionals desiring to enhance their perspectives and analytic skills, and for those intending to apply for analytic training with the InterRegional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA). The seminar faculty consists of local and visiting Jungian analysts who offer lectures and experiential learning as well as reviewing the papers and presentations prepared by the participants.
As an immersion process, the seminar seeks to provide intellectual stimulation, meaningful discussion, and soulful exploration of Jung’s analytical psychology. Participants, who must be in Jungian analysis a minimum of 20 hours face-to-face throughout their study, commit to attendance for one year: this involves ten monthly seminars from September through June, one weekend each month. Seminar begins on Friday at 2 pm and ends at 7 pm, and then continues Saturday at 9 am, with a break for lunch, and ends at 4 pm.
