The principle goal of the Jungian journey is to find yourself, who you authentically are independently of what you have been told to believe about who you are. The Jungian approach encourages self expression, pursues self knowledge, rekindles meaning and enables the realisation your optimum destiny or what Jung called individuation.
The goal of the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies is to make Jungian psychology accessible to all. We focus on teaching Jungian psychology as a practical, accessible and real tool for personal transformation.
Usually access to Jung’s work is reserved for those who are able and inclined to enter analysis, or for those exceptional and privileged enough to spend many years studying the Collected Works (20 volumes) and the last eighty years of Jungian and Post Jungian literature, in other words – the privileged few.
We stress that the teaching and facilitation offered in not of a clinical nature and is not a substitute for those requiring or seeking analysis.
Our method of delivery is neither academic nor esoteric, focusing instead on the practical application of Jung’s work in the student’s life for the purposes of personal transformation, increasing consciousness and promoting individuation.
This is not meant to reduce the depth and complexity, nor subtlety of Jung’s opus and in no way denigrates the invaluable work provided by Jungian analysts around the world.
We have a number of online courses that is presented during the year. Our signature online course is the Conscious Living Programme which opens for intake in July. This is an 18 month online programme that explores all psycho-dynamic concepts with the focus on the application of these concepts in an applied and practical format. The goal of this programme is self-awareness and self-knowledge. A key element to what Jung called Individuation.
We also offer the Jungian lexicon and process work as a programme called Magnum Opus. This four stage programme consist of Nigredo, Albedo, Citrinitas and Rubedo. These stages can be completed in any order.
We also offer 6 week online courses which are introductory and explores Jungian concepts and themes.
