Upcoming Events at the Jung Center
Wednesday, February 1 2017

The Yogas of Sleep and Clear Light

A powerful tool for awakening, sleep yoga is more than a practice of the night. It helps us to integrate all moments — waking, sleeping, meditating, and even dying — with the clear light of awareness. During this weekend, Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach and guide us in the clear-light sleep practices of the Mother Tantra, one of the most important cycles of teachings in the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition. The primary goal of sleep practice is to open the door to the true nature of the mind. Newcomers are welcome.

The Unseen Partner

by Diane Croft

Follow one woman's journey through the archetypal realm of the collective unconscious, guided by an unseen partner felt as both within and beyond. For three years, Croft was pulled into the sacred temple at the center of the psyche and captured the poetic voice she heard there. It took two decades of struggle to make sense of the experience and to bring it to consciousness in this book. This book explores the dynamic relationship between the ego-driven personality and the much older primordial unconscious and the wisdom it holds. Drawing heavily on the discoveries of C.G. Jung, as recounted in his RED BOOK, it reinforces Jung's notion that the psyche is, by nature, sacred and eternal. Intended for readers interested in depth psychology, the evolution of consciousness, perspectives on the archetypal feminine, and emerging God images in the 21st century.

The Unseen Partner is available online or in the bookstore itself.  Please contact Elissa Davis (information below) with any questions!

For more information, please visit our website or contact Elissa Davis, Director of Retail Sales and Customer Service, at 713.524.8253 ext. 18 or bookstore@junghouston.org.

Art Gallery

Come in any time we're open and browse through our art gallery!  It's free to the public, and the art changes every month!

Next month...

Eighteen pen and ink drawings by Houston artist and poet Childs Pescatore are the concretizations of dream images that inhabit our collective unconscious and the artist’s personal unconscious. Each composition/dream is accompanied by its own dream poem written by the artist.

The Haunted Mind is a body of work that addresses themes of duality, anxiety, and mortality. Multiple figures inhabit the frame to depict internal conflicts and the duality that exists within the self. Inspiration for the series comes from literature, film noir, nightmares, and an obsession with death.

Join us from 6 - 8pm on February 11
for the opening of both exhibits!

In the meantime, parking in the MFAH lot adjacent to The Jung Center is still unavailable for use until 7pm.  Additionally, due to the commencement of road work on Montrose Boulevard, street parking directly in front of the building is temporarily unavailable.  We ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes early for class, to ensure that you can access parking along the streets in the neighborhood.
