Understanding Jung

9-week evening course

October 16, 2023 – December 18, 2023

2 hours, every Monday, via Zoom


Carl Jung is one of the most influential psychologists in history.  His discoveries are fundamental to many complementary and spiritual therapies.

Jung’s work shows the importance of spirituality for human well-being.

Jung discovered the underlying patterns which all religions share and how they reveal the inner dynamics of the human mind.  Understanding Jung enables us to understand many aspects of society, to see the inner truths all religions share, and to understand the psychological crises many people suffer from in this modern world.  An understanding of the theories of Carl Jung is essential for a holistic understanding of the person.

Jung’s insights are seen in the design of Tarot cards, many spiritual beliefs and our modern understandings of how the mind works, the importance of myth and legend, and the dynamics of human societies.

This course will provide a quick and easy overview of Jung’s amazing insights.  It assumes no prior knowledge.

The course covers the main elements of Jung’s wide-ranging discoveries.  

“The tagline got me – ‘intellectually curious‘. I heard of Jung and knew a bit about his archetypes and shadow-self theories. I have also been running into many more events on various issues regarding synchronicity and have wanted to learn more about this aspect since Jung coined the phrase and the belief. I’ve also taken other courses with Owen and learned years ago – you follow the professor! Owen put substantial research, time, and effort into pulling this course together. The slides were very helpful. This course would apply to a very wide audience. Very pleased and happy; thank you for sharing your knowledge.” – Michelle M.

Therapists –  Continuing Professional Development

This course is sometimes used by students, especially psychotherapists, for their continuing professional development requirements.  This can require additional documentation on the course in order to be accepted.  If you plan to use this course for your continuing professional development, and require additional documentation, we can provide this for you.

“I’m a practicing psychotherapist with a humanistic/integrative background.  Jung’s ideas can be pretty dense and the course struck a fantastic balance between making the concepts comprehensible without over-simplifying them. The course covers a lot of ground, but the warmth and humour of Owen’s delivery and his willingness to answer questions meant it was never overwhelming.  Having said that, the personal and professional insights I experienced during the course have been nothing short of profound. I can’t help but feel that Jung’s idea of synchronicity applies here as I reflect on how perfectly this course provided me with what I needed at this moment in my life. So, if you’re thinking it might be the right time for you to study this course: it probably is!” – Tristan P.
