The Women’s Study group reads Jungian-related books from a feminine perspective. The group is unique in that we read the selected book aloud, encouraging individual contributions, interpretation and reflection, exploring ideas as we go.  We read, share and learn.

The Women's Study Group is having a productive and rewarding  summer, continuing its study of Jungian Psychology by reading and discussing Jung's Map of the Soul (Murray Stein, 1998).  It is hard to explain but there is something particularly meaningful about reading aloud and reflecting upon the words from a feminine perspective.  Even a single paragraph can be enlightening.
 
I have been reading Toni Wolff & C.G. Jung: A Collaboration (Nan Savage Healy, 2017).  Jung's early circle of followers established the Psychology Club of Zurich in 1916.  Toni Wolff was an active member, as were a number of women.   Some of the women felt that Jung's psychology was slanted in favor of the masculine point of view so they formed a women's group, who gathered to discuss psychological issues inherent to the feminine experience.  Interestingly, both Emma Jung, Carl Jung's wife and the mother of their five children, and Toni Wolff were members of this group.  At the time, Jung sometimes referred to Toni as "his other wife."  She was his inspiration, guide and muse as well as his professional collaborator during the creation of his core psychological theory.

The Women's Study Group meets at Trinity Church in the Mission Room at  371 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm.  If interested, please join us!

The purpose of the Analytical Psychology Society of Western NY is to study and share the work of C.G. Jung and related contemporary thought.

In addition to our continuing book service, The C.G. Jung Center is pleased to announce a working relationship with Talking Leaves Bookstore that will greatly expand the availability of Jungian literature in Buffalo.


Since our inception, access to the books we sell has been limited to times when our center is open to the public. As part of our arrangement with Talking Leaves they will be expanding the number of selections by Jung and related authors that they keep on their shelves.


Most of the titles will be at the Main Street store, however a list of what's available will be kept behind the counter at the Elmwood location.


We hope you will take advantage of this greatly increased opportunity to purchase these informative books so full of meaning for Psyche in the world.

"I have been compelled, in my investigations into the structure of the unconscious, to make a conceptual distinction between soul and psyche. By psyche, I understand the totality of all psychic processes, conscious as well as unconscious. By soul, on the other hand, I understand a clearly demarcated functional complex that can best be described as a "personality". (Jung, 1971: Def. 48 par. 797)
