About the Tallahassee Center for Jungian Studies
The Tallahasse Center for Jungian Studies was first established in the year 2000 for the purpose of giving the residents of the Big Bend, access to the theories of the Swiss psychiatrist and philosopher Carl Gustav Jung. Since its inception, this center has provided lectures, workshops and personal instruction that allows participants to better understand their own personal lives through these theories.
As explained on our home page, Jung's theoretical structure is rather diverse and complex. However, in presenting and living these insights for the past 25 years, I have come to understand that there are many aspects of related materials that can be presented with Jung's thoughts that will assist the individual in a better understanding of his/her life dynamics. It is also clear that Jung's thoughts were influenced by some of this material. Major areas of interest would include: Gnostic writings as found in the Nag Hammadi Library, philosophic existantialism such as Nietzsche's Zarathustra, Goethe's Faust, accurate anthropological understandings of biblical material such as Quispel's Secret Book of Revelations, material on the scientific evolution of our universe such as Weinberg's The First Three Minutes, and more. You will find papers and references to this complimentary material on this site. Keep in mind that the purpose of this material as with Jung's original work is to assist you in grasping a better understanding of yourself. If nothing else, may it get you to think and challenge some long standing beliefs that have become dysfuctional in your life.
The Tallahassee Center for Jungian Studies is dedicated to teaching individuals an understanding of the theories set forth by C.G. Jung and other authors, which will assist those individuals in gaining a great knowledge of themselves, and in turn will allow them to make more conscious decisions and lead more creative lives.
Carl Jung spent a lot of time subjecting his theories to a broad spectrum of the human experience. I believe this allowed him to refine his theoretical positions and capture the human experience outside of his localized time period and geographic area. Although there is always room for additional perspectives on the development of the human being, Jung set a creative and dynamic foundation on which to begin our explorations. Jung called this the process of Individuation. Nietzsche called it becoming the Overman.
