The seminar program for MAJS is organized as a year-long series of intensive weekend programs. The seminar generally meets on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday, one weekend per month from September through May.
The training program consists of academic courses and case discussion with MAJS faculty as well as visiting faculty analysts. Our September meeting is organized as a retreat focused on the presentation and discussion of participant dreams in group format. The May retreat uses the same format but each participant presents a symbolic and personal analysis of a myth or fairytale.
The Memphis-Atlanta Jungian Seminar is organized in compliance with the training requirements of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. Didactic and experiential presentations will be offered over a three-year time frame to cover important aspects of Analytical Psychology - classical Jungian, archetypal, and developmental. Seminar participants will be expected to make presentations, write papers, and interact in the discussions. There will be a review of each participant on a yearly basis with one or more training analysts.
