Jung and Patañjali in Dialogue LIVE Online

Class Details

In this workshop we will study a general overview of Jungian psychology and the Classical Yoga psychology of Patañjali, where these psychologies and their underlying philosophies converge and diverge, and why these psychologies remain relevant for our time.


The classes are geared to anyone new to Jungian psychology and/or Classical Yoga and for those with a small to moderate amount of experience with either body of work.


Learn about the Jungian and Patañjalian notions of ego, mind/psyche, complexes/samskaras, archetypes, the religious function of the psyche, the healing process of transformation, and more.


Discover how both Jungian and Yoga psychology apply to some of the most challenging mental health problems of our time including anxiety, stress, suicidal ideation, addiction, and ecocide.

Learn what Jung and Patañjali thought about synchronicity, psychic phenomena, and the mind/body unity. And why these notions are particularly relevant to the upcoming paradigm shift.


Explore where Jung met his limits in relation to Eastern liberatory thought and in relation to his cultural complexes.


Classes will be two hours in length for five-consecutive weeks and will be hosted LIVE on Zoom. If you miss a class, the audio recording can be sent to you upon request.


Classes are donation-based. The suggested exchange is $20 per class or $100 for all five classes. Pay what you can.

Pdfs of the class material will be provided on a weekly basis. A pdf of the Yoga Sūtras will be provided upon request at registration.


This course is based on my book, Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali. Purchasing or renting the text is helpful but not necessary.   


I hope to see you in a group!
