In what way is Jungian psychology an attempt to dream the Christian myth onward? How has traditional Christianity repressed the unconscious? Starting January 10th these questions and more will be tackled in an online course investigating the Christian fundament of C.G Jung's Psychology and its importance today.

In four online seminars, we will explore Jung’s wrestle with Christianity, the questions he asked throughout this process, and their relevance for today. We’ll meet for four 75-minute sessions over Zoom. Each session starts with a lecture by Jungian Analyst Jakob Lusensky (host of the podcast Psychology & The Cross, followed by discussion, questions, and sharing between participants. A recording of each session will be shared with people that registered.

This online course will cover: 

Session 1: Following the footsteps of a Protestant. In our first learning session, we go in-depth into Jung’s childhood experiences and the Christian tradition he grew up in and how it informed his psychological project. We discuss his early visions, dreams, and fantasies and later attempt at reforming Freud's psychoanalysis.   

Date: 10 Jan 2023 8:00-9:15pm CET (Central European Time)

Session 2: Jung's Red Book & rendering of the Imitation of Christ. An in-depth study of Jung’s wrestle with Christ in the Red Book and his radical reformulation of the Christian concept of the imitation of Christ. We discuss its central importance for Jung's development of the theory of individuation and how it connects with the spiritual life today.

Date: 17 Jan 2023 8:00-9:15pm CET

Session 3: Christianity’s repression of the unconscious. With C.G Jung’s 1923 Cornwall seminars as a starting point (published in 2023 by Philemon Foundation) we learn how Jung viewed Christianity's effect on the unconscious. We discuss the link between Analytical Psychology and Christianity and the relevance of Jung’s findings in the culture of today.

Date: 24 Jan 2023 8:00-9:15pm CET

Session 4: Jung’s vision of dreaming the myth onward. In our last session, we will discuss Jung’s later writings on Christianity with an emphasis on Aion and Answer to Job. We conclude with a discussion about Jung’s vision of dreaming the myth onward and the question if Jung wished to reform or transcend Christianity. 

Date: 31 Jan 2023 8:00-9:15pm CET
