‘The unconscious itself initiates the process of renewal’ (CW14§548) but ‘Your destiny is the result of the collaboration between the conscious and the unconscious’ (Letters; Vol. I, p. 283)
Perhaps your yearnings for renewal, for depth, for meaning, for new direction need a resting place to incubate. ISAPZURICH could be that petri dish, providing a unique opportunity for an immersive experience in which time and commitment can foster the richest conscious/unconscious encounter.
Students coming from more than 20 different countries contribute to our institute’s international flare and cultural exchange. Likewise our faculty is composed of internationally active Jungian analysts and guest lecturers who bring expertise from other fields. Lectures and seminars at ISAPZURICH are held in English and German, while training analysis and supervision are available in a number of other languages.
ISAP’s full-time community enables a real sheparding of academic and psychological processes providing a once-in-life opportunity to ‘leave it all behind’ and revel in the necessary luxury of taking a deep look within in order to realign with ones own true nature and further one’s potential.
The genius loci of Zurich as well as the classical Jungian perspective born and cultivated in Zurich will be unique for your self-journey. Adhering to the original concept of analytic training as set down by Jung and his early colleagues, ISAPZURICH offers a rich variety of lectures and seminars during two 14-week semesters each year.
Whether you come for a few weeks or months or stay for an entire semester; whether you come on sabbatical or on a restorative vacation; whether you come as a ‘time out’ and some come to deal with ‘burn out’; whether you come to escape or come to explore: Whatever your motivation or circumstance, coming to immerse and engage in classes and the ISAP Community will go a long way in helping you find orientation and home again.
Applying for Matriculated Auditor status at ISAP, even as a seeker will help ensure your stay at ISAP is documented and that you have access to all privileges of the semester of your visit.
ISAP’s continuing education program in the Fundamental Theory of Analytical Psychology is designed for persons who are generally interested in deepening their basic knowledge of Jungian psychology. This two-semester program affords you time to tap into your own resources and strengths to help find a deeper meaning in life. It opens the opportunity for individuality to unfold, which Jung called the process of individuation.
The fundamental theory of Analytical Psychology and its basic applications are conveyed in theoretical and practical courses. The particular focus is on the ways of soul, and how these manifest and can be understood in dreams, myth, fairy tale and other symbolical material. Theory is presented in lectures, and seminars provide the context for practical application.
Understanding symbols and the symbolic world is central in Analytical Psychology and allows unconscious processes to become clearer and creative potentials to become accessible through interpreting dreams, pictures and myths. As a short-term student at ISAP these are just a few of the transformational topics you can explore to enrich your professional expertise.
An accompanying personal analysis is strongly recommended, and is available in a number of languages. Analysis provides the individual self- exploration that is at the core of a Jungian approach, and cannot be obtained in the classroom.
