Jung and Patañjali in Dialogue is an online immersion into one of my favorite topics: the convergence and divergence between the psychologies of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung and Classical Yoga scholar Patañjali.
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.
Designed for those with a small to moderate amount of experience with either Jung's or Patañjali's body of work, each week you will receive a 100+ page pdf before class begins to read before class or to follow along as we go LIVE.
If you are unable to attend LIVE each week, the audio will be sent to you within 48 hours of the class.
If you are interested in exploring the intersection of East and West from a psychological and philosophical point of view, or if you are interested in a deeper understanding of your mind and its functions, I hope you will consider joining me for this course.

"Leanne’s online courses dive deep with information and insight, into the teachings of Jung and Patanjali. The setting is intimate, comfortable and inclusive. I love that we all had the opportunity to ask questions and have dialogue, at any point during her presentations.
Get ready - they’re PACKED with facts, information and recommended readings. Don’t worry though, they’re recorded, so you can listen to the audio again and again.
Leanne is filled with knowledge, embodied wisdom, and genuine joy. She has a natural ability to make Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras understandable, and to relate them to all aspects of our human experience. I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg, that is her offerings, yet I have no doubt that she will continue to be one of my greatest teachers." ~ Facebook Review 2019
"Dr. Leanne Whitney truly embodies what she teaches! Even after 45 years of meditation and of reading numerous renditions of Patanjali's Sutras, my taking her course recently on the Sutras has given me more clarity, understanding, and love of Gift of Yoga. Her background in depth psychology blends perfectly with the ancient yogic wisdom; in fact, it makes her presentation so much more relatable to the Western 'thinker." Leanne is totally approachable & desires her students to ultimately realize Patanjali's treatise on Real Liberation - and live it. If only our ailing world could genuinely taste some of the wisdom transmitted in her wonderful 5 week interactive videocourse ... Oh, and her book, CONSCIOUSNESS IN JUNG AND PATANJALI, is superb and perfect for those who aim to transform to the good." ~Facebook review 2019
Depth psychology and Yoga psychology are potent healing modalities for our time. I hope to see you in the group!
