Analytical Psychology and the Feminine:

Claire Douglas and Images of the Goddess

May 24th - July 12th

Friday mornings, 9:30am-11am

8 sessions

with Satya Doyle Byock, MA, LPC

*sold out*

Jung’s intuition of the possibilities inherent in the reclamation of both the dark side of the feminine and the dark shadow side of humanity remains one of the most creative and troubling elements of his work.
— Claire Douglas

Clinical Psychologist, Jungian Analyst, and author Claire Douglas dove deep into topics of the feminine and women in the history of Jung’s psychology. Her insights into these realms broke new ground with unapologetic reviews of Analytical Psychology, and unapologetic respect for Jung’s pioneering work in reexamining the value of the feminine for the patriarchal world.

The results are transformative for men, women, and gender non-conforming people.

In addition to our inquisitive intellectual engagement with Douglas’s work, participants will be encouraged to choose a figure of the Feminine from myth or history—personal or collective—to present to the group. We’ll sink into the images and background of this figure, allowing space for art and story-telling in each session.

Date: Friday mornings, 9:30-11am May 24rd- July 12th

Location: Inner NE Portland home

Cost: $225 for 8 sessions

Required Text: “The Woman in the Mirror,” Claire Douglas own view of the world prefers union and reconciliation of male and female, masculine and feminine, men and women, to their division and isolation, but only when each is equally respected and equally free to do and think and be, regardless of gender.
— Claire Douglas
There is a seed within [Jung’s] theory which contains the possibility of freeing women and the feminine from the very patriarchal formulations that surround them.
— Claire Douglas
