About the Center
Founded in 1991 by Aryeh Maidenbaum and Diana Rubin, the New York Center for Jungian Studies offers seminars and study tours in extraordinary settings. Each year, the Center presents a spring program in Ireland, a summer seminar in the Hudson Valley, and a study tour abroad. Accompanied by outstanding and internationally recognized analysts and authors, we take great pride in creating unique and meaningful content that provides insight into the concepts of C.G. Jung and how we may better understand ourselves and our world by drawing on these ideas.
In a world fraught with dissension and anxiety, our programs are designed to be a respite from daily life and a journey inward to deepen our Individuation process. Our seminars and study tours provide an ideal setting to stretch ourselves psychologically, learn how to better balance spirit and matter, and mine the depths of our inner Self. When we can respect the power of the unconscious and look beyond causality and effect, we are able to further our potential for individuation and growth. Continuing education credits are offered for mental health professionals.
