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!
