In Preparation - March 2021

Becoming One’s Self

The Society of Analytical Psychology
is currently planning the third of its innovative, residential weekends
based in Grasmere, Lake District, U.K.
Dates TBD, Friday
through to
Sunday lunch, March 2021

Lake View Country House, Lake View Drive,
Grasmere, LA22 9TD

For March 2021, we are focusing on Becoming One’s Self - a Jungian approach to individuation. There will be talks, workshops and discussions on concepts such as the dynamic self, what it means to become oneself and how this informs work in the consulting room. To allow the experience to be further digested and personalized, we provide facilitated groups, social dreaming workshops and an opportunity to walk with others in the Lakeland fells. Numbers of participants are strictly limited to provide an in-depth experience.
